LATISSE Eyelash Treatment
Latisse® is an extremely effective treatment for lashes that are shorter and/or thinner than you’d like. Within just 3 to 4 months of using Latisse®, your lashes will grow longer, fuller and darker. It’s important to note that though there are other products on the market that claim to improve lash growth, Latisse® is the only FDA approved product to treat inadequate or sparse lashes.
Latisse® is topical solution that is applied nightly with a sterile applicator. Although it works gradually, Latisse® takes very little effort for the big pay off of longer and thicker lashes. Research shows that 78% of Latisse® patients showed significant improvement in length, thickness and darkness by 8 weeks.
There are possible side effects. The most common side effect of using Latisse® is a slight itching sensation in the eyes and/or minor eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Latisse® may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse® is applied. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and redness of the eyelids. Latisse® must be used on a regular basis. Once you stop using Latisse®, your lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
