LATISSE® solution Eyelash Growth Treatment
LATISSE® solution is the first and only FDA-approved, science-based treatment to enhance eyelash prominence as measured by increases in length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes. User studies showed a 106% increase in lash fullness, a 25% increase in length and an 18% increase in darkness.
Available by prescription in physician offices, LATISSE® solution is applied once daily to promote lash growth in those with inadequate or sparse lashes. LATISSE® solution is made by Allergan, makers of Botox and Juvederm
What is in LATISSE® solution?
The active ingredient in LATISSE® solution is bimatoprost, a prostaglandin which prolongs the growth cycle of the eyelash. By extending the hair growth cycle, lashes grow longer, more lashes remain present and the result is a fuller, lusher eyelash that’s natural, not coated as with sticky mascara or glued on as with extensions or false lashes.
How long does it take LATISSE® solution to work?
LATISSE® solution shows lash improvements after a full growth cycle, usually beginning around 4 weeks. By weeks 8 to 10, most users have a growth “pop” and by 16 weeks, the full effects are in place.
How is LATISSE® solution different from other products like Revitalash?
LATISSE® solution has FDA approval, plus you’ll know what’s in the product as the ingredients are right on the package label. Results are proven with scientific studies. Plus, LATISSE® solution is a product of Allergan with the identical active ingredient in use for many years in the ophthalmologic sector. That means there is industry-leader research, safety testing and established safe use directives.
How do I use LATISSE® solution?
Once daily application is all that is required. This is done at night after cleaning the face, removing any eye makeup and removing contacts. The solution is applied only to the upper lash line and excess solution is blotted. Because the active ingredient affects all hair, it is important to wipe away solution that drips beyond the lash line to prevent unwanted hair growth.
How do I get LATISSE® solution?
LATISSE® solution is a prescription product and is only dispensed by physicians. You will need to be seen by your doctor for a few moments prior to purchasing LATISSE® solution in our office. This is to rule out any reason you may not be a suitable user and to make sure you understand the application procedure to get the most benefit from the product and also to get the most use from the product.
How long do I have to use LATISSE® solution?
Ongoing use of LATISSE® solution is required to maintain full results. If you stop using Latisse™, your lashes will return to their original condition, although after a full 16 week cycle, some users notice that they can skip 2 to 3 nights per week and still see satisfactory lash fullness and length. Official product use instructions call for every day application. Individual results will vary.
