WHAT IS LATISSE?
Eyelash Enhancement, Grow Your OWN Long Thick Eyelashes!
You have probably heard about Latisse, the eyelash grower that is FDA
Approved. How does it work as an eyelash lengthener?
Latisse is a prescription medication often prescribed for the treatment of
hypotrichosis, also known as inadequate or sparse eyelashes. When used
properly Latisse can help promote the growth of thicker, darker, and longer
eyelashes. The bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (0.03%) is the active
ingredient in Latisse, which helps lengthen what is known as the anagen or
"growth" phase of the eyelash hair cycle, as well as increase the number
actual lashes produced during the anagen phase. Latisse is the first and
only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for treating hypotrichosis.
In the beginning, Latisse came from a glaucoma drug in eye drop form called
bimatoprost (brand name Lumigan, manufacturer Allergan, Inc.), in use since
FDA approval in 2001. During that period, eye doctors and their glaucoma
patients noticed the hair growth side effect, with longer, lusher eyelashes
appearing over time.
According to studies, Latisse lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes via
a process that isn't fully understood. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes
sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out. Latisse both extends the
growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout.
How Latisse is Used:
Latisse is a topical solution that should be applied for several months
nightly to the upper eyelid using a disposable applicator. If regular use
is discontinued, the effects will wear off, so Latisse must be applied as
prescribed on a continuing basis.
Before applying Latisse, it is important to:
- Remove contact lenses
- Remove all makeup
- Thoroughly wash face and hands
The Latisse solution is placed on the tip of the applicator, and then drawn
along the top eyelids. It should only be applied to the upper eyelid at
night, as it is best that the area containing the eyelash follicles, absorb
the solution be during sleep.
Now celebrities such as Jenny McCarthy and Mandy Moore are reportedly using
Latisse, whose advertising spokesperson is Brooke Shields.
