What is Latisse?
Latisse, bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%, is indicated to treat hypotrichosis of the eyelashes by increasing their growth, including length, thickness, and darkness. The only FDA-approved prescription product of its kind shown to grow, thicken and darken eyelashes.
How it works:
LATISSE is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your practitioner. Then, gradually, the results come in. Lash growth possible because of the product’s active ingredient: bimatoprost, which is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
You may start to see more length in as little as four weeks, and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes — only better.
