LATISSE® Treatment for Eyelashes
LATISSE® eyelash enhancer is the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved cosmetic treatment for increasing the length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes.
Available only through prescription, it is applied once a day to the base of the upper eyelashes. Full results take sixteen weeks. LATISSE® liquid solution causes eyelashes to grow thicker by improving the blood supply to the hair follicles. This action will increase the number of active hairs , and the duration of a hair follicle’s growth period. The result is longer and fuller lashes.
Once LATISSE® treatment is discontinued, its benefits gradually end.
APPLICATION OF LATISSE® SOLUTION
LATISSE® solution is applied at night. Contact lenses and makeup are removed, and skincare products applied, before using the LATISSE® solution. To prevent contamination, the LATISSE® solution is applied with a single-use disposable applicator. The applicator, which is coated with one drop of solution, is applied to the base of the upper eyelid, at the lash line. The applicator is moved from the inside of the lash line to the outside. Excess solution is blotted to prevent its spreading to other areas. A separate applicator is used for each eye. Contact lenses can be put back in 15 minutes after LATISSE® treatment.
CANDIDATES FOR LATISSE® TREATMENT
Anyone who wants longer, fuller and darker eyelashes may be a candidate for LATISSE® treatment. Those who have eye infections, or broken or irritated skin on their eyelids, or who use products for elevated intraocular pressure, should not undergo LATISSE® treatment. A doctor-performed full medical history is taken prior to the start of LATISSE® treatment.
