Latisse

What is Latisse?

Latisse (known as bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) was first discovered to make eyelashes longer and darker when it was being studied to treat the eye disease glaucoma. In those studies it was placed directly into the eye itself. Longer, darker lashes were an accidental result. Bimatoprost was found to prolong the anagen phase of the hair– that’s the growth phase when the hair becomes longer and darker. When applied to the eyelids just at the lash line, it will make those lashes longer and darker. 

What is Latisse Used For?

Daily use of Latisse results in longer darker lashes. It works on everyone, no matter what age. As we age, our lashes naturally become shorter, thinner and fade in color. Latisse helps to restore the length and beauty of eyelashes.

What results can I expect?

Your eyelashes will be longer, thicker and darker. Here is a typical example:

What are the Benefits of Latisse?

Latisse is easy to use and works on just about everyone. Your lashes will look completely natural, because they are yours. Longer darker lashes means you won’t have to use other products, like makeup or mascara. Many people who use lash extensions invest a lot of time and money in lashes that need to be refilled every few weeks. Daily use of Latisse will save you time and money. Also, many people can develop an allergy to the glue used for lash extensions. Allergies to Latisse are extremely rare. 

How Long does Latisse take to work?

Latisse should be applied once a day to the upper lash line in the evening before bed. You should start to see results in about a month. The full effect takes up to 16 weeks. If you find that the length is perfect after 8-12 weeks, you can cut back to using Latisse 3 days/week for maintenance.

What are the Common Side Effects?

The most popular misconception about Latisse floating about the innerwebs is that it might turn your blue eyes brown. In the original studies where the drug was placed directly in the eye, some dark pigmentation to light colored eyes was reported. In the studies done with Latisse placed on the upper lids there were no reports of any change in eye color.

Latisse can cause eye irritation in some people. It can also cause hyperemia (increased blood flow) at the lash line, and over time can darken the skin at the lash line. Most people tolerate Latisse really well.

Over time, if you stop using Latisse, your lashes will return to their normal length and color.\

If you forget a day or two, there is no real issue with effectiveness. However, if you stop for weeks at a time, eventually your lashes will return to their natural length.
