What is LATISSE®?
While many individuals aspire to have longer, thicker and darker eyelashes, most are looking for long-term improvements that other products or treatments may not provide. Approved by the FDA in 2008, LATISSE® is an at-home treatment that can help interested individuals achieve lash fullness that lasts. Because it is a prescription product, we must first determine if LATISSE® is right for you through a brief review of your medical history by a medical professional. After a simple series of daily applications over a period of 16 weeks, women and men will begin to see their lashes lengthen, thicken, and even darken.
How Does it Work?
LATISSE®’s unique formulation for improving lash fullness was actually discovered coincidentally. During a series of 2001 clinical trials for
a medicated eye drop used to treat elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), researchers began to notice that participants inexplicably began to grow longer, fuller lashes. Intrigued, they isolated the active ingredient in the eye drops, bimatoprost, and began to assess how safe it was for cosmetic eyelash enhancement. After a series of clinical trials, the product known today as LATISSE® was developed and FDA approved.
This prescription-only treatment provides long-lasting eyelash growth after a 16-week, daily application of LATISSE®. The product is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes every evening. Before applying the solution, it’s important that any makeup or contact lenses are removed, and the upper eyelids are clean. Individuals using this product should expect to gradually see improvements throughout the course of treatment, with the first results typically becoming visible after four weeks. Continued use of this product is recommended to maintain lash fullness.
What are the Benefits of LATISSE®?
LATISSE® remains the one and only prescription treatment clinically proven to grow eyelashes. Whether your eyelashes have depleted over time, or you simply desire more lash fullness, this treatment can provide dramatic, long-lasting results with continued use.
