What is LATISSE?
LATISSE® solution is an eyelash growth treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes). In fact, it’s the first FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow eyelashes — and it’s the first lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.
LATISSE solution is a once-nightly treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as few as four weeks and you should achieve full growth in just 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth — it’s real eyelash growth.
How does LATISSE work?
LATISSE makes lash growth possible because of the active ingredient bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
