The history of Latisse®

An ingredient in prescription eye drops for people with glaucoma was discovered as an agent that grows eyelashes naturally. The makers of the Lumigan eye drops (Allergan) decided to separate this component responsible for eyelash growth (Bimatoprost) and manufacture it for cosmetic use for people with hypertrichosis – short, thinning lashes. It is believed that Latisse® affects the growth phase of the hair by increasing length and number of hairs. By 16 weeks, participants in a research study revealed that eyelash length improved by 25 percent, thickness and fullness improved by 106 percent, and lashes were 18 percent darker.

How do I apply Latisse®?

Latisse® is very easy to use. Simply follow the steps below:

  • Wash your face, remove any makeup.
  • Remove the applicator bottle and brush from box. Place a drop of the Latisse solution to the tip of the brush.
  • Apply the wet brush to the area just above your eyelashes.
  • Blot any excess solution.
  • Dispose of the brush applicator (use a new brush for each eye).
  • Repeat this process for the other eye.

Is Latisse® eyelash growth permanent?

No, Latisse® must be used daily to maintain results. If usage is stopped, eyelashes will return back to their average length.

How long does it take to start noticing results after using Latisse® for eyelashes?

Latisse eyelash results are gradual. Some patients notice a result within one month, but most patients see the full effect within 3-4 months.
