Latisse Eyelash Enhancement

Latisse® solution is a growth treatment for eyelashes. It is the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow eyelashes, and it is the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.

Latisse® solution is a nightly treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It is not an illusion of growth. It is real lash growth.

Latisse® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient – bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, 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.
