Latisse is an FDA approved drug that is intended to help patients grow longer, thicker eyelashes.
Latisse works by extending the amount of time that the hair can grow. This period is known as the hair growth cycle. If the eyelashes are able to grow for a longer period of time, they will grow longer in length.
Latisse is applied once a day on your upper lash line. It is up to you whether you want to do this morning or night
Latisse is not recommended for use on the lower lash line.
Using Latisse for the eyebrows is considered to be an off label use. If you want to use the product on your brows, make sure to do so under the guidance of a physician.
One kit costs about $120. This includes the solution and 30 disposable applicators.
Some people use their own applicators. However individuals need to be very cautious about avoiding infections and doing this under sterile conditions. It is much safer to use the applicators that come with the kit.
The results of Latisse are not permanent. If you stop using the product, your lashes will eventually revert back to their original length.
Latisse is not recommended for individuals who are allergic to the main ingredient which is bimatoprost. Also it should not be used for anyone with i intraocular eye pressure issues.
