Latisse™ is a novel treatment for people with inadequate or not enough eyelashes, which is called hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. It is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA to grow longer, fuller, darker lashes in people with inadequate eyelashes.
Latisse comes is a 5-mL bottle of solution with 140 sterile, disposable applicators that should last 10 weeks. One drop is applied every night to the base of the upper lashes with a sterile applicator. After as little as 8 weeks of consistent use, users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes with full results in 16 weeks. If the application of Latisse is stopped, lashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks or months. Latisse does not replace mascara, but mascara can help compliment the results that Latisse will provide.
Latisse is FDA approved to enhance length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes. The FDA reviewed clinical study results to verify the identity, potency, purity, and stability of the ingredients, and demonstrated that the product is safe and effective for its intended use if used as prescribed.
