Latisse® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker, and darker because ultimately the growth phase can be prolonged.
Why use Latisse®?
Latisse® is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes. It is a once-a-day treatment applied topically to the base of your upper lashes. Great lashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it is important to note that ® works gradually and remarkably with full results after 12 to 16 weeks. ® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you will begin to see changes in length, thickness, and darkness. After week 16 you will see the full effect of ®- and so will others!
