learn more about Latisse

Who is a good candidate for Latisse?
Anyone who wants longer, thicker & darker lashes

This is a great product for:
Those going through chemotherapy who have lost their lashes & brows.
Women who naturally have thin, sparse lashes & brows.
Women who have noticed that over time their lashes & brows have become thinner & shorter.

When will I notice results?
At 8 weeks 100% of people will begin to notice their lashes becoming longer. By 16 weeks their lashes will have reached the peak effect of Latisse in terms of the maximum length, thickness & darkness that they will obtain.

How long will the results last?
The results will continue as long as they use Latisse.  After using Latisse every day for 16 weeks you can then go to using the product 3 times a week to maintain those same results.

What are the side effects?
Side effects are rare.

The most common are:

Stinging and irritation if any of the Latisse gets into your eye. This is temporary

Redness and itching of the eyes. This occurs in a very small percentage of people using Latisse. It is due to the fact the Latisse also dilates the blood vessels in the eyes which can lead to redness and itching – not an allergic reaction

A darkening of the skin of the eyelid where the Latisse is applied. Again this is rare and will go away once Latisse is stopped.

Will it change my eye color?
There has never been a documented case of change of eye color with the use of Latisse. The reason that this side effect is stated, is due to the rare occurrence of change of eye color with the glaucoma prescription eye-drop – Lumigan. Lumigan and Latisse are the same medication. However, the biggest difference is that Lumigan is placed directly into the eye for the treatment of glaucoma. Because these drugs are the same, even though the risk is even quite small with Lumigan, the manufacturer is required to state this as a risk with Latisse.

Is there any downtime?

What is the cost?
For the 5ml container it is $179. This should last you 16 weeks if you are using it every day.

Who shouldn’t use Latisse?
Those with a history of glaucoma who use a prescription eye drop. Latisse actually started out as a prescription to treat glaucoma 10+ years ago. It was then that Ophthalmologists discovered their glaucoma patients using bimatoprost(Latisse) came back for their follow up appointments with long, thick, dark lashes.
