Common Latisse Questions

How does it work?

Bimatoprost, the active ingredient, helps increase the anagen, or growth cycle, of your eyelashes to give you longer, thicker, fuller eyelashes.

Who is it for?

Patients with thinning or insufficient eyelashes can use this eyelash solution to grow thicker, fuller lashes. People with hypotrichosis, the medical term for inadequate lashes, benefit from daily application of Latisse to boost eyelash growth naturally.

Do I need a prescription?

Yes. It is a prescription medication for eyelash growth and must be dispensed by a medical provider.

What advantages does Latisse have over non-prescription products for eyelash growth?

It is the only FDA-approved solution for eyelash growth. The safety and efficiency of Latisse has been proven in several clinical trials, including one conducted by UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine.

Statistics show that the users experienced an 18% increase in eyelash darkness, a 106% increase in lash fullness and a 25% increase in lash length over a 16 week treatment period.

How do I use it?

Apply Latisse at home daily to your upper eyelashes. Remove all eye make-up and clean your eyelids. If you wear contact lenses, take them out before applying Latisse, and put them back in 15 minutes after application.

Place a drop of the solution on one of the applicator brushes included with the kit. (Each kit comes with a bottle of solution and 30 pairs of applicator brushes.) Only use the sterile applicator that comes with the solution. Don't use other brushes or applicators. Apply to the lashes at the base of your eyelid. Avoid using it on your lower lashes or skin. It may cause excessive hair growth in non-treatment areas. Blot off excess solution with a tissue.

Apply daily for 16 weeks to obtain best results. Using the solution more than once a day won't make eyelashes grow faster or thicker than the recommended once a day treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Most patients use the eyelash growth solution without experiencing problems. Minor side effects include redness in the eyes and an itching feeling in or near the eyes. Dry eyes and darkening of eyelid skin are less common side effects.

If side effects persist or you develop an infection or other serious problems, consult your physician
