LATISSE™ Eyelash Treatment

Description: A non-surgical cosmetic product, LATISSE™ solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. This product is approved by the FDA. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost (the active ingredient) can also prolong the lash growth phase.

Anesthesia: None

Surgery & Recovery: LATISSE™ is a once-a-day prescription treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes with sterile applicators. The application takes about 2 minutes and may easily be a part of your night time facial cleansing regime. There is no down time or recovery with this product.

Results: LATISSE™ users may see results starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks. The gradual growth will be visible over time. If you stop using LATISSE™, your lashes will return to their previous state losing the thickness, color, and length they achieved with LATISSE™.

Complications & Risks:Common side effects when using LATISSE™ solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness reported by about 4% of users during testing. LATISSE™ solution may cause skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. LATISSE™ solution is an ophthalmic drug product. If any gets into the eye, it is not expected to cause harm. LATISSE™ is comprised of bimatoprost; benzalkonium chloride; sodium chloride; sodium phosphate, dibasic; citric acid; and purified water. If you are allergic to any of those ingredients, LATISSE™ is not the product for you.
