Women have long been striving to turn their short, skimpy lashes into the likes of Cleopatra’s. Mascaras claiming to thicken, lengthen, and add some glamour to lashes are constantly being brought onto the market, but mostly with lack-luster results. Now, women are turning to a ground breaking treatment called Latisse® that is making barely-there lashes a thing of the past.

Latisse® is the first and only FDA approved product to treat inadequate or sparse lashes. This simple treatment is making some women’s lashes so long they’re finding it necessary to trim them down! Latisse® is believed to work by not only extending the length of the growth phase of the eyelash but by increasing the quantity of lashes grown as well, leaving you with longer, thicker and darker lashes.

This eye-opening product is not only safe and effective, but extremely easy to use as well. Before you go to bed, simply place one drop of Latisse® on the applicators provided and apply to the base of the upper lashes (the product will be distributed to the lower lashes while you sleep). Results for many begin to appear as soon as eight weeks and one can expect to see complete results anywhere between twelve to sixteen weeks.

This revolutionary product is already receiving rave reviews and looks to make false lashes and expen- sive mascaras a mere memory. One unit of Latisse® contains a six to eight week supply.

Common Questions

How does Latisse® work?
Latisse® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown.

Is Latisse® effective?
The Latisse® clinical study was conducted at 16 sites across the country and included 278 participants, featuring women and men of various ages (22 to 78), backgrounds and eye colors. Throughout the course of the 16-week treatments, each participant was photographed and evaluated at 4-week intervals (week 0 to week 16) for differences in their overall lash prominence, including elements of length, thickness and fullness. At 16 weeks, the results showed that Latisse® was effective for 78% of those participating, versus 18% for the vehicle group. Vehicle is the same as Latisse®, without its active ingredient.

How soon will I see results?
Latisse® users may start to see longer lashes at 4 weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks. The growth is gradual over time.

How do I apply Latisse®?
Latisse® solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid, because excess hair growth outside the treatment area may occur. See the full instructions in How to Apply, and apply as instructed by your doctor.
