Latisse® (bimatoprost) is FDA approved man-made form of a naturally occurring substance called a prostaglandin. Latisse is used to treat hypotrichosis (abnormal growth of the eyelashes). Bimatoprost helps increase the growth, length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes.
Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that Latisse® solution works gradually and remarkably – with full results at week 16. Once you begin, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of Latisse® solution – and so will others. After that, you can talk to your doctor about ongoing use.
Latisse® Dosage and Administration
Ensure the face is clean, makeup and contact lenses are removed. On night, place one drop of Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03 % on the disposable sterile applicator supplied with the package and apply evenly along the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes. The upper lid margin in the area of lash growth should feel lightly moist without runoff. Blot any excess solution runoff outside the upper eyelid margin with a tissue or other absorbent cloth. Dispose of the applicator after one use. Repeat for the opposite eyelid margin using a new sterile applicator. Do not reuse applicators and do not use any other brush/applicator to apply Latisse®. Do not apply to the lower eyelash line
