What is Latisse®?
Latisse® is a prescription treatment solution that helps increase eyelash growth. While other eyelash growth treatments exist in the market, Latisse® is the only treatment approved by the FDA for growing fuller, longer, and darker eyelashes. Latisse® is derived from Lumigan, a drug commonly used to treat glaucoma. Along with its active ingredient, bimatoprost, Latisse® helps increase the duration of the eyelash growth phase, which stimulates growth. When Latisse® is used daily, patients can see gradual results starting at 4 weeks with full growth occurring at 16 weeks. Once a patient has begun treatment, it is recommended they continue to apply the growth solution each night to receive the best results. If a patient stops treatment, their lashes may slowly return to their original condition.
