Eyelashes (LATISSE®) Q&A

What is LATISSE®?

LATISSE® topical solution is the first scientifically proven treatment that allows you to grow your natural lashes, making them longer, fuller and darker* in just 16 weeks.

Do my eyelashes change as I age?

Yes. Just like our skin and facial structure, eyelashes change over time. As we age lashes become thinner, shorter and lighter.

How do eyelashes grow?

Eyelashes grow in a continuous cycle. On average it is estimated we have 100 to 150 lashes per lid. At any one time 41% of your upper lashes are in the active growth phase. Usually this phase lasts 1 to 2 months.

How does LATISSE® work?

LATISSE® is believed to stimulate hair growth and dormant hair follicles by increasing the number of lashes in the active growth phase. LATISSE® is also thought to extend the length of this phase. This means that the lashes grow for a longer period and so become longer and thicker.

What should I expect?

LATISSE® helps you grow your own natural lashes. However, eyelash growth is a gradual process, so while you may notice changes as early as 4 weeks, the full effect takes up to 16 weeks to achieve. So it’s important you continue to use LATISSE® as directed.

How do I apply LATISSE®?

LATISSE® solution is applied to the upper eyelid, once nightly. Sterile disposable applicators are provided to help you apply LATISSE® correctly.

Is LATISSE® the same as other eyelash enhancement products?

No. Mascara, eyelash conditioners and eyelash extensions may enhance lashes but LATISSE® is the only scientifically proven treatment that helps grow your natural lashes.

How do I maintain my results?

Eyelash growth is a continuous process. In order to maintain your results, you should continue using LATISSE® as directed.
