LATISSE™ (bimatoprost ophthalmic 0.03%) solution is a prescription treatment to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. The use of LATISSE to facilitate eyelash growth was serendipitiously discovered in the use of its predecessor LUMIGAN for treatment of glaucoma. You must undergo a consultation with a physician before LATISSE can be dispensed.
LATISSE is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle by lengthening the anagen phase and by increasing the number of hairs in this growth phase.
Under our care, most people will achieve significant and noticble lengthening of eyelashes in 6 weeks. Optimal cosmetic benefit can take up to 3 months and should be continued per maintenance regimen as prescribed by your doctor.
In 2013, Latisse should be approved by the FDA for hair thinning. In clinical trials and anectodal reports, Latisse has been demonstrated to be effective in promoting hair growth, strengthening hair shafts, and some reversal of grey hairs.
Our office has excelled in counseling our patients to achieve maximum cosmetic benefit with least amount of potential side effects.
