LATISSE® is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for enhancement of lash length, fullness, and color. For patients looking to create a more youthful, vibrant, and striking look to your lashes, LATISSE® could be the appropriate solution. Consult with your doctor to find out if LATISSE® is right for you.
Is Latisse Right for You?
If you’re considering LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03%, it’s important to get all the facts. You may have questions about how the treatment works, how soon you’ll see results and, of course, the safety of the product. Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE® 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.
The Latisse Cosmetic Procedure
Like every routine, applying LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is all about consistency and precision. Once you follow the basic guidelines, the results will come gradually over time. To see the full effect of your eyelash transformation, take a “before” picture before you start the treatment, and keep taking pictures every 4 weeks to chart your progress.
The most common side effects after using LATISSE® solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness, which were reported in approximately 4% of patients. These may occur immediately after use, but should usually last only for a short period of time. Eye itching and eye redness are not allergic reactions, and do not mean that your eyes are being harmed.
LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE® is applied, or in the eyes. These include eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. Skin darkening (or hyperpigmentation) is another less common side effect. This condition causes areas of skin to become darker than the surrounding skin color, but has been reported to be reversible after discontinuation of the product.
LATISSE® solution has no recovery or downtime and is done in the privacy of your own home at your leisure.
