Latisse® is a topical solution containing bimatoprost, a synthetic form of the prostaglandin hormone. Prostaglandin regulates the growth cycle of your hair follicles, including your eyelashes. The treatment prolongs the growth phase of your eyelash follicles and increases the number of hairs that grow, resulting in longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes over time.
Latisse® is applied directly to the base of your upper eyelashes once a day, usually at night before bed. You should not apply Latisse to your lower eyelashes or any other body part. You should also use a new sterile applicator for each eye to avoid contamination or infection.
You will start to see fuller eyelashes in as little as 8 weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. However, you need to use Latisse consistently and regularly to maintain the effects. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
