Latisse is an FDA-approved, prescription-only treatment that’s designed to promote lash grow for longer, darker, and thicker-looking eyelashes. Latisse has been on the market since 2008, making it one of the most trusted eyelash-extending solutions available today.
Latisse works in two ways:
- It extends the growth cycle of the eyelashes.
- It increases the overall number of eyelash follicles.
With these two mechanisms, Latisse users see thicker and longer lashes within four months.
Men and women who want thicker, longer, and darker-looking eyelashes or eyebrows.
Latisse isn’t administered in a procedure; instead, it’s a prescription treatment that you perform at home before going to bed. Latisse is administered from a dropper bottle to a small applicator brush and applied along the upper eyelashes or to the eyebrows.
Recovery, Risks, and Results
If you’re a candidate for Latisse, it carries minimal side effects. However, some patients do experience redness or irritation to the application area. In very rare cases, Latisse can cause darkening of the eyelid skin.
With regular use, you should see improvement after two months, with optimal results visible after four months.
