How LATISSE® Helps
LATISSE® is believed to work by extending the length of time that eyelash hairs stay in the growth phase and by increasing the number of eyelash hairs that are in the growth phase. This means that as your existing eyelash hairs are replaced with new eyelash hairs, the new hairs will be thicker, darker, and longer. However, LATISSE® will not affect the appearance of your existing eyelash hairs, so you may continue to use mascara during your treatment until your new thicker and more luxurious eyelashes grow out.
Using LATISSE® is quite easy, and is a treatment you can apply in the privacy of your own home rather than at our office. Each night, after removing makeup, taking out any contact lenses, and washing your face, simply place one drop of LATISSE® solution on the enclosed sterile applicator. Next, draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid where the eyelashes meet the skin. Pass the applicator from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part, and then blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin. Repeat for the opposite side. Use one sterile applicator for each eye. Each treatment kit includes 60 sterile applicators, enough to last for one month. LATISSE® should not be applied to the lower eyelid or to the eye itself.
Visible improvement in the appearance of the eyelashes will occur gradually as your new lashes come in. In the clinical trial leading to FDA approval, the majority of users saw a significant improvement in eyelashes within two months, with the optimum improvement occurring after four months of use.
