What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is the only FDA-approved formula for growing longer, fuller, and darker lashes. This topical treatment is indicated for eyelash hypotrichosis, a condition in which lash length is inadequate, or there are not enough lashes to sufficiently cover the area. This treatment is only available by prescription to ensure proper application. Correct daily use over the course of 16 weeks can produce dramatic results for a majority of patients.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
LATISSE® is available by prescription from our vision experts, who will instruct you on proper application technique. It is important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your treatment. You may not notice significant changes in your lashes for several weeks or more. It is imperative to commit to daily use for 16 weeks in order to achieve the full results.
Treatment with LATISSE® creates fuller, thicker, more voluminous eyelashes. It can also darken the eyelashes, which further enhances the appearance of your eyes.
Throughout your 16 week treatment, you will apply the solution using the provided sterile applicators to your upper eyelid only. You should remove any makeup and clean your skin before applying LATISSE®. We recommend photographing your eyes every few days so that you are able to monitor your progress. At the end of your 16-week treatment, your eyelashes will appear longer and fuller.
Side Effects and Risks of LATISSE®
During treatment, some patients experience itching, redness, or irritation in the eyelids. These relatively common side effects do not indicate a more severe complication, and may resolve on their own. If, however, you experience blurred vision or any other form of visual impairment, you should contact our office right away. There is also a slight risk of developing an infection with LATISSE® that may require medication to treat.
To mitigate your risk of side effects and complications, we will closely monitor your progress throughout the course of treatment. Our doctors and knowledgeable staff are always available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about LATISSE® treatment.
Benefits of LATISSE®
