Your eyelashes have a life cycle: they sprout, they grow, they eventually fall out. Latisse stimulates your body’s natural lash production: sprouting more lashes, and lengthening the growth process, therefore allowing your lashes to get longer before they eventually fall out.
Within 2 to 4 months, patients notice longer, fuller, and darker lashes.
Latisse didn’t start as a eyelash growth serum; it started as glaucoma medication. Developers noticed that patients using the medication had longer and thicker eyelashes than before they started treatment. Since then, the formula has been adjusted to work specifically as a lash growth treatment.
Latisse was developed by medical scientists, so you can trust it’s medically sound, and safe when used as directed.
Applying Latisse is quick, easy, and effective. You should apply Latisse at night time, after you’ve taken out your contacts, removed your makeup, and washed your face. Using one of the supplied disposable applicators, dab Latisse onto the lash line of your upper eyelid. The product will transfer to your lower lid naturally as you blink. Throw out the applicator, and you’re all done!
Do not apply Latisse to your lower lash line, or reuse the disposable applicators. Be careful during the application process as Latisse could promote hair growth other places on your body. If you stop using Latisse, your lashes may go back to the way they were before treatment.
As with most medical treatments, not everyone is an ideal candidate for Latisse. You should not use Latisse if you are pregnant, nursing, or at risk for macular edema. People with severe allergies or skin infections should avoid Latisse as well. Latisse’s active ingredient lowers intraocular pressure, so you should not use it if you’re already taking glaucoma medication to lower your intraocular pressure. Most Latisse users report no ill effects if the product accidentally gets in their eyes, however, you should still avoid any direct contact with your eye.
