Latisse® helps to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes, allowing you to bring out your eyes in a natural way without the need for large amounts of mascara fake lashes or time-consuming eyelash weaves/extensions.
Latisse® is an FDA approved, prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelash growth. It is a topical solution that you apply each night directly to the base of your upper eyelash, DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid because excess hair growth outside the treatment area may occur. Latisse® works gradually over time. Treatment times may vary but typical full results should be present in 12 to 16 weeks. In the clinical study, 78% of the participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence (including elements of length, fullness and darkness) at week 16.
The way that Latisse® works is that it is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in the growth phase. The exact way that Latisse® works is unknown.
