What is Latisse?

Latisse solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks.* It's not an illusion of growth. It's your own eyelashes — only better.

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 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 History of Latisse

Although Latisse is a treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with expertise in eye care products.

Latisse was discovered when doctors began prescribing bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse, for glaucoma patients or patients with ocular hypertension or glaucoma. When doctors began prescribing these drugs for the treatment of glaucoma several years ago, they noticed a desirable side effect: increased eyelash growth!* Patients would return to their doctors with dramatically thicker, darker and longer eyelashes in as little as 6 to 8 weeks.* And so, Latisse was developed!
