What Sets Latisse® Apart?
Latisse® is the first lash growth prescription treatment approved by the FDA and Health Canada to stimulate growth in individuals with too few or inadequate eyelashes.
What is So Special About FDA and Health Canada Approval?
These organizations are responsible for protecting the welfare and health of the public by strictly regulating prescription products. If a prescription passes FDA and Health Canada inspection, it has undergone scientifically studied clinical trials for safety and effectiveness.
How is It Applied?
Latisse® is applied nightly with the sterile applicators provided. Start by cleaning your face, removing all makeup, and taking out your contact lenses if you are wearing them. Dispense a single drop of the solution onto the applicator and carefully brush across the skin of the upper eyelid at the base of your eyelashes. Do not rinse your eye if any of the solution gets in it. It will not cause harm. Do not apply the solution to the lower eyelid. If there is any excess solution outside the upper eyelash line, blot it with an absorbent material, such as a tissue.
How Long Until I See Results?
It is important to note that Latisse® lengthens the anagen, or active growth phase, of your eyelashes. It does not make your eyelashes grow faster. It can take weeks to months before your lashes are visibly longer. Apply the solution nightly for 16 weeks to see the full results. Then, you can talk to us about reducing the frequency of your application. Results can last for a while after application stops completely.
Can I Apply the Solution with My Own Cosmetic Brush?
Do not use your own cotton swabs or cosmetic brush to apply Latisse®. The disposable sterile applicators are specifically designed for proper product application.
Is It Right for Me?
Latisse® is right for practically anyone who wants thicker, longer eyelashes and is not allergic to any of the ingredients in the solution. Are you ready to grow your own eyelashes of your dreams?
