Get Longer Lashes!
Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis and is used to grow eyelashes. Latisse makes eyelashes longer, thicker and darker.
Ask Dr. Brownell if Latisse is right for you!
Allergan, the manufacturer of Latisse, provides the following information:
Latisse is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways:
- Latisse increases the length of the growth phase
- Latisse increase the number of hairs in this growth phase
The results of using Latisse are seen gradually with significant improvement noticed within two months.
Clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of Latisse, and it has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis. The most common side effects of Latisse (4% of users) are eye itching or eye redness. Other less common side effects include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids.
LATISSETM is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for growing longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. LATISSETM makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because LATISSE prolongs the active growth phase of your lashes.
LATISSETM is easy to use, FDA approved and effective. It’s a once-a-day treatment you apply to the base of your upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results gradually over time (starting at 4 weeks with peak results after roughly 4 months). If you stop using the product, your lashes will slowly go back to normal with your next eyelash growth cycle. (This varies from person to person, but is usually between a few weeks to a couple months.)
