What is LATISSE®?

LATISSE® is a prescription drug (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, 0.03%) that is used to treat hypotrichosis, which is the medical term for having an insufficient amount of eyelashes. It’s specifically for individuals who may struggle to grow hair around the eye, have minimal lashes, or have eyelash loss due to stress or illness. It works to lengthen, thicken, and darken the lashes.

So, what makes it stand out from other lash serums? LATISSE® is the only hypotrichosis solution that has been FDA-approved. This means the LATISSE® eyelash serum is safe, effective, and dependable.

How Does it Work?

LATISSE® is applied at the root of the eyelashes to stimulate growth, length, thickness, and darkness. To get more technical, bimatoprost is responsible for LATISSE®’s success.

Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in LATISSE®, imitates the natural chemical that stimulates eyelash hair growth inside our body, called prostaglandin. It uses fatty acids to connect receptors in the hair follicle.

What Are Some Benefits of the LATISSE® Eyelash Serum?

The best part about LATISSE® is that it’s completely safe and provides you with outstanding results. If you struggle with eyelash growth, this product is perfect for you. It also makes your eyelashes thicker, instantly making them appear fuller.

Even if you wear contact lenses, you can still experience all the perks of LATISSE®.

Are There Any Side Effects to LATISSE®?

As with many other skin care products, you may experience some redness around the treated area. This is because of increased blood flow and isn’t anything to be concerned about. You can expect the redness to improve over time.


This product is for anyone looking to fill out and grow their eyelashes. To be prescribed, talk with your doctor or medical provider.

How Do I Use it?

Using LATISSE® is easy! Before application, ensure that your face is completely clean and all makeup is removed. Make sure to dry your face thoroughly. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before applying the LATISSE® eyelash serum.

Apply the solution onto a thin, eyeliner-like brush. Careful – a little goes a long way. Next, lightly brush the product along the base of your upper lash line. We recommend beginning at the inner corner of your eyelid and drawing a line towards the outer corner, like you’re applying eyeliner. Finally, remove any excess product with a tissue.

When using the LATISSE® eyelash serum, you’ll want to be cautious of contamination. Use a new eyeliner brush for each eye, and discard the wand after each application.

For optimal results, apply the product once a day for sixteen weeks.

When Will I See Results?

LATISSE® is powerful and will start working right away. You can anticipate visible results within the first few weeks of using the product. Because the eyelash’s growth cycle is two months, it’s vital to use it for this amount of time for peak results.
