Eyelash Lengthening

Improve Thinning Eyelashes

Latisse is a growth treatment for hypotrichosis, referring to inadequate or not enough eye lashes. Originally used as a glaucoma medication, Latisse (aka bimotoprost) is the first FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. While the mechanism of action isn’t entirely understood, it is effective in not only growing new lashes, but also to dramatically thicken and darken existing lashes. It is an exciting alternative for those looking to grow their own lashes for a healthy, youthful and natural look.

FAQs

Eyelash growth is a cyclical process, where each lash may be in a different phase of growth. In the growth phase, a new lash begins growing and pushes out the older lash in front of it. The length, thickness and darkness of the lash are determined by how long it spends in the growth phase. LATISSE®prolongs this active growth phase, so that your lashes have more time to grow. LATISSE® is a once-a-day, at-home treatment, applied topically. Results appear gradually, reaching full results at 16 weeks.

Over-the-counter eyelash products focus on conditioning and moisturizing lashes to increase the health and length of the lash. LATISSE® has been clinically proven to actually grow lashes noticeably longer, fuller and darker.

Yes. However, you must remove your contact lenses prior to application of LATISSE® and reinsert lenses 15 minutes after application. LATISSE® contains benzalkonium chloride, which may be absorbed by soft contact lenses if left in during application.

Common side effects are itchy eyes, redness of the eyelid and/or skin darkening, which has been observed in approximately four per cent of clinical trial patients (please call our office for more information on LATISSE® clinical trial results). There is a very small potential for increased spots of brown iris-pigmentation in persons with light-coloured eyes, which may be permanent. This increased iris pigmentation is associated at a very low incidence when the active ingredient of LATISSE® (bimatoprost) is instilled directly into the eye.

Over several weeks to months, eyelashes will return to their previous appearance.
