Please Note: These are general estimates that may or may not apply to you individually.
There’s been a growing interest in this product ever since it was introduced. And it’s no wonder. LATISSE is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.
LATISSE makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE 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 this growth phase.
Longer, thicker, darker- Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE solution works gradually and remarkably – with full results at week 16. Once you begin, you must continue treatments as directed for best results. If you stop LATISSE treatments at any time, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Ultimately, LATISSE results in lashes that are longer, thicker, and darker. As the treatment progresses, you may notice some changes before you notice others, and gradually, all 3 effects are seen. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE solution — and so will others.
The LATISSE clinical study was conducted at 16 sites across the country and included 278 participants of varying ages (22 to 78). The study compared LATISSE solution versus a vehicle group (or placebo), which was LATISSE without its active ingredient. Neither patients nor Clinical Investigators knew which group received what treatment. By week 16, the results showed that 78% (107/137) of participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence (including elements of length, fullness and darkness), compared to 18% (26/141) for the vehicle group.
Clinical trial results showed lashes were:

During your consultation, Dr. Anita will take time to learn about your concerns and aesthetic goals, and discuss treatment options in detail. She will go through your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine the best plan to reach your goals and make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.
Dr. Anita will then review the risks, benefits, how to use, and what to expect when using LATISSE serum.
Continue application of LATISSE serum to the upper lash line before bedtime each night until desired effect, then may continue nightly application or decrease to 2-3 nights per week for maintenance as needed.
Many patients find that improving the length and thickness of their eyelashes helps them feel more confident and beautiful. This can be accomplished by growing your own lashes with LATISSE, or adding false eyelashes or extensions.
LATISSE is a prescription-only treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes). LATISSE helps to strengthen, regrow, and lengthen lashes via a topical solution applied to the lash line. It can be purchased directly from our office, and comes with the solution as well as a full supply of applicators.
The active ingredient in LATISSE is bimatoprost, and the lash growing effect was discovered incidentally after this medication used in eyedrops for glaucoma was noted to give users the side effect of luscious lashes. It was then studied specifically for the effect of growing eyelashes, and Latisse was FDA approved in 20008. When used for lashes, it is applied topically only, just along the lash line.
The treatment lengthens the amount of time that eyelash follicles remain in the growth phase, allowing them to grow longer and thicker naturally.
The full effects of the treatment may take up to 16 weeks to appear, as the treatment enhances the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes.
While the LATISSE treatment is safe for most people, patients with disorders that affect eye pressure, other eye diseases, eye infections, or allergy to any ingredients, may not be candidates for use. Dr. Anita will review your medical history during your consultation to ensure that the treatment is suitable and safe for you.
The effects of LATISSE will continue for as long as you continue to use the treatment. Stopping or pausing LATISSE does not mean your lashes fall out. If you stop the treatment, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Currently, LATISSE is not recommended for use on eyebrows.
