LATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
What to Expect — Set your sights on growth
Great eyelashes don't just happen overnight. That's why it's important to note that LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% works gradually and remarkably — with full results after 12 to 16 weeks. Once you begin treatment, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. Remember results are gradual over time.
If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months. Your eyelashes will experience real measurable growth. LATISSE® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you'll begin to see changes in length, thickness and darkness gradually. After week 16, you'll see the full effect of LATISSE® — and so will others.
LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases thelength of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown.
LATISSE® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid because excess hair growth outside the treatment area may occur. See the full instructions in How to Apply, and apply as instructed by your doctor.
LATISSE® users may see results at 8 weeks with full results at 12 to 16 weeks. The growth is gradual overnight, over time.
If you miss an application or a few, don't try to catch up. Just apply the LATISSE® treatment the next evening and stay on schedule.
If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Contact lenses should be removed prior to application of LATISSE® and may be reinserted 15 minutes following its administration.
