What is Latisse®?
LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or insufficient eyelashes) used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved treatment to grow eyelashes for people with inadequate or not enough lashes. To see the FDA clinical study notes for Latisse click here.
How does Latisse® work?
LATISSE® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you’ll begin to see changes in length, thickness and darkness gradually. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE — and so will others.
Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight.
That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE works gradually and remarkably – with full results after 12 to 16 weeks. Once you begin treatment, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. Remember results are gradual over time.
One bottle of Latisse comes with 60 eyeliner brushes. The directions indicate that you should use 2 brusher per day (one brush for each eye) and then dispose the brush. So, the bottle will last one month, however if you use one brush per day the bottle will last 2 months. After 4 or 5 months of daily treatment, you may be able to use it less often and maintain the effectiveness.
While most everyone may want the look of longer, fuller and darker lashes, not everyone may be right for the treatment. Dr. Ray will have to evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. You should not use Latisse if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. And if you are using products for elevated intraocular pressure, you should only use Latisse after consulting with your eye doctor.
