Latisse was developed and manufactured by Allergan Inc, the company behind Botox and Juvederm. The drug is very similar to a glaucoma drug called Lumigan, containing bimatoprost ophthalmic solution of 0.03 percent.

What Patients Experience With Latisse

In clinical trials with Latisse, 78 percent of participants experienced significant eyelash growth. On average, their eyelashes were 25 percent longer, 106 percent fuller, and 18 percent darker.

Latisse is available for people who have short or "inadequate" eyelashes; a condition called hypotrichosis. If you are not satisfied with your lashes' length or prominence, Latisse may be an option.

How Latisse is Applied

Most people apply Latisse at night. First, you cleanse your face, remove your contacts and remove any makeup. Hold the special, sterile applicator horizontally and place one drop of Latisse on the tip. Brush it on the base of your upper eyelid, from the inner area outward. Blot any excess Latisse and dispose of the applicator. Repeat this process daily, with consistency, and you should see your eyelashes transformed in a matter of weeks.

What to Expect After Using Latisse

Most people start to see results in 8 to 12 weeks. Full results can be appreciated after 16 weeks. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will gradually return to their original state.

Possible Latisse Side Effects

The most commonly reported side effects (4 percent of patients in trials) were itching sensation in the eyes and eye redness. Side effects that occurred less frequently include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and eyelid redness.
