LATISSE® solution is a growth treatment for lashes. It is a safe, effective treatment that has been shown to grow longer, fuller more luxurious eyelashes in as little as eight weeks. In fact, it’s the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, clinically proven to grow your own natural eyelashes longer, fuller and darker. Visible results happen as early as eight weeks with full effects within 12-16 weeks.
LATISSE® solution is a once-nightly treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s real lash growth.
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost.
LATISSE® works by prolonging the active growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
LATISSE® was created by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with 60 years of eye care expertise. In 2001, Allergan developed a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Many patients using this medication also began to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes as a side effect. This led Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing lashes. After a clinical trial, LATISSE® was approved by the FDA in December of 2008.
LATISSE is available in both 3 and 5 ml sizes and is a part of the Allergan Brilliant Distinctions Program. Patients who are members of this Program are awarded points for their purchases and may enjoy savings coupons towards future treatments.
