Latisse® is an FDA approved treatment that results in longer eyelashes. With daily use, many patients can see the results of this non-invasive prescription in as little as 4 weeks.
Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic 0.03%) is a prescription created by Allergan to promote eyelash growth. Latisse treatment results in longer, darker and thicker eyelashes.
Latisse® is the only FDA approved treatment to address eyelash hair loss.
A single drop of Latisse® is placed onto the lash line with a disposable, single-use applicator.
Once applied, bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse®, affects the eyelashes’ hair cycle by increasing the number of hairs present in the anagen (growth) phase.
Additionally, bimatoprost may also extend the anagen (growth) phase of eyelashes.
A consultation is required prior to prescribing Latisse. During your Latisse consultation, one of our aesthetic nurses will review your medical history for any contraindications, explain correct product use (see below), and review any potential side effects.
Latisse contraindications may include: eye infections, irritated eyelid skin, a history of elevated intraocular pressure, use of products to treat elevated intraocular pressure, and allergies to Latisse® ingredients.
Apply a thin layer of Latisse® solution each night. Remember to:
You will see a gradual improvement in your eyelashes over 16 weeks of using Latisse®. Many patients experience longer lashes by the fourth week and fuller and darker lashes by eight weeks. The results of clinical trials using Latisse® showed that lashes became 106% fuller, 18% darker, and 25% longer.
Please advise us if you experience a change of vision or eye trauma when using Latisse®.

In clinical trials, Latisse® was well tolerated.
The most common side effect was eye redness and eye itching (4% of patients in clinical trials).
Other, less common side effects included eye dryness, eye irritation, and potentially-reversible eyelid hyperpigmentation. Iris color change that’s permanent has been reported but is rare.
The effects of Latisse® will last for as long as you continue to use it. If you stop your prescription, it will take several weeks to several months for your eyelashes to return to what they looked like before you started your prescription.
