Are you wondering what it would be like to have longer, fuller, and darker lashes this summer? If so, you may want to consider Latisse®, the FDA approved eyelash treatment by Allergan designed to address sparse, thin lashes. You can now step into summer with confidence!

What Is Latisse® and How Does It Work?

Latisse® is a version of a glaucoma drug called bimatoprost discovered after doctors noticed their glaucoma patients experiencing lusher, longer, and darker eyelashes appearing over time as a side effect of its use. Latisse® is the first FDA approved prescription drug for treating sparse eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller, and darker. Just like your hair, eyelashes sprout, grow for some time, then fall out. Latisse® works to extend the growth phase and to increase the number of lashes that grow.

Latisse® comes with sterile applicators you will use to dab the drug to your upper lash line each night. The drug will flow to your lower lash line as you blink. Avoid applying Latisse® to your eyes or your lower lids and be careful not to let it fall on other areas of your skin as it may promote unwanted hair growth.

What Results Should You Expect?

After about two months of using Latisse® every night, you should start seeing some results. After three months, you may only need a treatment every other day. If you discontinue using Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their original state.

Participants in a 16-week study of using Latisse® reported eyelash length increase of about 25 percent, fullness and thickness increase of 106 percent, and eyelash darkness increase of 18 percent.
