Do you dream of having long, thick, lush eyelashes? Have you tried eyelash curlers, extensions and special mascara only to find those “solutions” made your lashes dry and brittle? Or maybe you have a medical condition that inhibits eyelash growth. Now we can help you grow the rich, healthy fringe of luscious lashes you want!
The secret is a revolutionary product available only with a doctor’s prescription: LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate lashes) that can help you grow longer, fuller, darker eyelashes.*
LATISSE® is applied once a day to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. Longer, fuller and darker eyelashes can be experienced in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. It works by enhancing the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes.
Eyelash growth is cyclical and happens in 3 stages: a growth phase, a transition phase, and a resting phase. At any given moment, numerous hair follicles can be found in each of the different stages. The growth phase of an average single eyelash is approximately 1 to 2 months, and each upper eyelash has approximately 100 to 150 eyelashes during this phase. LATISSE® has been shown to increase the amount of time each eyelash hair remains in the growing phase. The application of LATISSE® has been scientifically proven to increase the thickness of eyelash hair as well as the darkness of each hair. This may be due to more production of pigment within each hair follicle. Most of the time, within 4 months of application, LATISSE® can increase the length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes. The result is more noticeable, gorgeous lashes.
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved prescription treatment. It was discovered by Allergan as a side effect of people using Lumigan ® , a medicinal treatment for glaucoma. These patients found they had increased length, darkening and thickening of their eyelashes. This desirable effect led to the use of the same product sold as LATISSE® for eyelash enhancement.
Besides an improved cosmetic appearance, longer eyelashes do have another positive effect: When the blink reflex is triggered, eyelashes protect the eyes from many forms of airborne particles.
See the pictures below showing a typical growth of eyelashes when applying LATISSE® daily. Individual results may vary.
If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
LATISSE® – Important Safety Information

LATISSE® may cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent. Eyelid skin darkening may occur and may be reversible. Only apply at the base of upper lashes. DO NOT APPLY to lower lid. Hair may grow on skin that LATISSE® frequently touches. If you have eye problems/surgery, consult your doctor about use of LATISSE®. Common side effects are itchy and red eyes. If discontinued, lashes gradually return to previous appearance. Please see accompanying LATISSE® full product information.
