According to Allergan, Latisse users can expect to experience longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.Once Latisse is stopped, eyelashes will slowly return to there pre-treatment appearance.

Why does everyone want it?

Beautiful long eyelashes have always been highly desired by women. Long eyelashes create a warm, feminine quality that warms and enhances the beauty of the eyes. For years, a variety of mascara products have been put on the market to create this attractive look. Today, Latisse, the first FDA approved drug specifically indicated to promote eyelash growth is giving mascara a run for its money. Latisse was originally created to treat Hypotrichosis, the condition described as having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.

LATISSE™ is a pharmacological preparation designed to enhance eyelash growth during the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle. The drug is believed to act to increase the length of this phase and also to increase the number of hairs in the growth phase. The exact mechanism of action is unknown. LATISSE™ is available by prescription only and works as a permanent lash enhancer until the hair falls out. Continued use of LATISSE™ ensures continued visibility of results. If you wish to stop using LATISSE™, the hair will follow its natural cycle and enhanced hairs will be replaced with natural hairs as the lashes grow and fall out, typical over several weeks to months.

LATISSE™ is a product that is used daily in the safety of your own home. Application is typically recommended in the evening to a clean, dry face. There is no need for a medical professional to apply the medication… LATISSE™ does not work in place of mascara. However, mascara is a nice complement to LATISSE™ to help make your new longer eyelashes look even more attractive.

LATISSE™ is the only clinically proven, FDA approved lash enhancing product currently on the market. The results and effectiveness were shown in a clinical trial.
