Latisse Eyelash Treatment
A New Innovation in Eye Lashes
What is Latisse™?
Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis and is used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
How does Latisse™ work?
Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse™ is believed to effect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of the lashes; and second, it increases the number of lashes. The majority of patients using Latisse™ will see significant improvement in two months.
Is Latisse™ safe?
Only Latisse™ has been approved by the FDA. The safety and effectiveness of Latisse™ was demonstrated in clinical trials.
How do I use Latisse™?
Using Latisse™ is easy. Remove your make up, wash and dry your face and remove your contact lenses. Apply the solution once nightly across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. Blot away any excess beyond the eyelid margin. Disposable applicators are included for daily use. Use one applicator for each eyelid to minimize any potential for contamination from one eyelid to another.
- Do not apply in your eye or to the lower eyelid.
- Use only the sterile applicators that come with Latisse™
- Do not use this product if you have a history of glaucoma or elevated intraocular eye pressure (IOP) without first speaking to your eyecare specialist.
If you forget a dose, simply apply the next evening. If the solution gets in your eye, don´t panic, it will not harm you. If you stop using the solution, your lashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over the next few weeks to months. The most common side effects are itching and redness.
