Is Latisse® safe?
Latisse® is safe for most people and requires an exam with one of our eye doctors to determine if it is right for you. Latisse® can lower eye pressure, so if you are using or have used prescription medications for eye pressure problems please tell your doctor before using Latisse®.
How do I use Latisse®?
You apply Latisse® yourself at nighttime for 16 weeks. It can easily become a part of your normal nightly beauty routine. Before applying Latisse®, ensure your face is clean and makeup and contact lenses are removed. Contact lenses may be reinserted 15 minutes after application. Place one drop of Latisse® on the provided sterile applicator. Starting from the inner corner to the outer part, draw the applicator carefully only on the skin at the base of the upper eyelashes (where eyeliner is typically applied).
Do not apply directly in the eye or on the lower lashes. Discard applicator and repeat with a new applicator for the other eye. Blot any excess solution. Do not stop or reduce application when you first notice results. If you miss a dose, just wait until the next day to apply. Do not apply more than one dose a day.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are itching, redness, or irritation. Less common side effects include darkening of the eyelid skin and increased brown pigmentation of the iris.
Is there any downtime or restrictions?
There are no restrictions or downtime with Latisse®.
Please consult with your doctor in the case of eye trauma or any new or changing eye conditions such as sudden changes in vision, infection, or surgery. Be sure to tell your eye care specialist you are using Latisse®.
How often should I use Latisse?
To see full results, you need to use it every night for 16 weeks. To maintain the results thereafter, we recommend you continue to use it every day. If you discontinue use, your lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
