Latisse has become synonymous with thick, lush eyelashes. Bimatoprost, the medication marketed as Latisse, has been shown to be an effective treatment to trigger eyelash growth. When applied daily to the upper eyelid, the serum has been clinically proven to cause eyelashes to grow longer, thicker, and darker. Latisse is not for lower eyelashes.
Long, thick lashes are often associated with alluring eyes, but not all women are blessed with thick lashes, or they have thinned over time. Latisse began as a drug used to treat glaucoma. The active drug, bimatoprost, was prescribed in drop form to be used daily to reduce the internal pressure of the eye. Over time, a pleasant side effect occurred with daily use: eyelashes which grew longer, thicker, and darker. Latisse extends the normal growing phase of each eyelash, permitting longer growth, beyond what nature dictates.
Latisse is applied to only the upper eyelashes using a single-use applicator each night. Using one applicator for each eye, you apply one drop of serum to clean eyelashes. The serum will migrate to the lower lashes through natural transfer when you blink. It is important that you discard each applicator after a single use to avoid adverse effects such as eye infection, allergic reaction, or irritation. After two months of nightly use, you will begin to notice the lash-enhancing benefits of Latisse, and others just might notice it too. After three to four months of use, your physician may recommend you reduce application to once every other night to maintain your look.
Latisse has been FDA-approved as a safe, effective treatment for the enhancement of eyelashes. With regular use of Latisse you can see:

Latisse is not appropriate for everyone, so it is important that you speak with your doctor before beginning its use. As long as your eyes are healthy and are free of issues or infections, Latisse is safe to use.
There are few side effects associated with use of Latisse. Some patients have reported a darkening of the eyelid skin that comes into contact with the medication. There is a very small chance that Latisse can cause an irreversible darkening of the color of the iris. If this is a concern for you, Latisse may not be a suitable option.
Most people are suitable candidates for treatment with Latisse.
