What is LATISSE®?
Achieve the thick beautiful eyelashes you desire with LATISSE®, an FDA-approved prescription treatment that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Initially intended for use as a glaucoma drug in eye drop form, LATISSE® has been used with FDA approval since 2001. At that time, eye doctors and their glaucoma patients noticed a hair growth side effect, with longer, lusher eyelashes occurring over time.
How Does LATISSE® Work?
Apply LATISSE® at night after your makeup is removed. Place one drop in the cap of the LATISSE® and apply with the sterile brush. Apply it like liquid eyeliner, tracing a line along the upper lash line right where the lashes meet the skin. Do not apply the LATISSE® to the lower lashes.
Dr. Lily also recommends applying the remaining product on the brush to the eyebrows. The treatment may be applied to the eyebrows alone if desired as well. It generally takes around two months to see results. Once you stop using the product, your eyelashes and brows will likely return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
What to Expect After Treatment
LATISSE® will not lengthen or thicken your eyelashes overnight, but you will see a difference with patience and consistent application. Most people see highly noticeable results after a few weeks. In one study, after 16 weeks, the average user saw an increase in eyelash length of 25%, an increase in darkness of 18%, and an increase in thickness and fullness of 106%! Imagine what it would be like to have eyelashes more than twice as full as they are today! It’s possible with this product!
