What is LATISSE®?
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved treatment used to give patients thicker, fuller, darker, and overall more luscious eyelashes. Unlike many other treatments that need to be administered in the office of a licensed physician, LATISSE® can be applied on a nightly basis in the comfort of your own home.
Surprisingly enough, this treatment was originally discovered by accident. In 2001, Allergan developed an eye drop medication that was used to treat elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). During the original clinical trials of the medication, researchers began to notice that many patients began to grow longer, fuller, darker lashes after using the drug. Allergan conducted another study of the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, to see if it was responsible for this lash growth: they found that it was. After a series of clinical trials targeted at assessing the medication’s safety were successful, LATISSE® was FDA-approved for cosmetic use.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
LATISSE® is a daily procedure that is completed entirely in the comfort of your own home. Patients undertaking a LATISSE® treatment will have to apply a medicated solution to the base of their upper eyelashes every night over a period of 16-weeks. Before using this medication, we recommend that patients remove any makeup or contact lenses that they may be wearing and clean their upper eyelids thoroughly.
Over the 16-week treatment period, patients will slowly begin to see changes in the length, fullness, and color of their lashes. Noticeable results are usually visible within four weeks of starting treatment, with full results appearing at the end of the 16-week treatment period.
Most patients who undergo LATISSE® treatments experience dramatic, long-lasting results in the appearance of their lashes. During a series of clinical trials, it was found that patients receiving LATISSE® treatment had a
- 25% increase in lash length
- 106% increase in lash fullness and thickness
- 18% increase in lash darkness
