Grow Longer, Fuller, Darker Lashes
What is Latisse
Latisse® solution is a treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse is the first and only treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or not having enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller, and darker.
Latisse makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost can also prolong this growth phase.
Making the Most of Latisse
Latisse is easy to use, FDA approved and effective. It's a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Once you know how to apply Latisse, follow these few simple tips to help you make your treatment as effective as possible:
Get into a Routine
Try to incorporate Latisse into your nightly routine — for example, after you've washed your face and brushed your teeth.
Keep it handy
Store the Latisse bottle near your other skin care products or toothbrush, so you won't forget to apply it each night.
Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% takes time to work. Only use it once a night, and don't overuse it, as this may increase the chance of experiencing eye redness or itchiness.
If your eye makeup remover leaves an oily residue on your eyelids, wash off any excess oils with soap and water to ensure a clean surface before you apply Latisse.
Follow the rules
Always use the sterile, disposable FDA-approved applicator provided in the kit. Don't try to apply Latisse with a cotton swab. The LATISSE® applicator is specially designed to hold a drop and release a drop.
Don't play catch up
If you miss a dose one night, don't apply more just to catch up. Simply apply Latisse the next evening and stay on schedule.
Beware of germs
Don't let the tip of the bottle or applicator contact your fingers or any other unintended surface, in order to avoid contamination by common bacteria known to cause infections.
Chart your progress
When you start using LATISSE® solution, be sure to mark your calendar and take pictures throughout weeks (0, 4, 8, 12, 16), so you can have your own "Before & After Gallery."
