How does Latisse work?
Latisse uses a medication called bimatoprost as an active ingredient that affects eyelash growth in the anagen phase. It’s known to increase both the length and amount of eyelashes in this phase.
Latisse was discovered in 2001 by accident when Allergan developed an eye drop that treated elevated intraocular pressure. Patients would notice fuller and thicker lashes as a side effect of the eye drops. A clinical trial granted Latisse FDA approval for the treatment of eyelash growth in December 2008.
How do I use Latisse?
Latisse therapy is a completely non-invasive treatment. Latisse is applied daily to the base of the upper lashes. To learn more about Latisse eyelash treatments, schedule an appointment with one of our knowledgeable doctors.
