Are you concerned about not having enough lashes?
Are you losing lashes or are your lashes becoming thinner and shorter over time?
Wanting longer fuller lashes but you don’t want the hassle of lash extensions? LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% may be for you. LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. LATISSE® grows longer, fuller and darker eye lashes. Studies show after 16 weeks of treatment:
- 78% of participants experienced a significant increase in overall lash prominence
- 25% longer
- 106% fuller
- 18% darker
Individual results may vary. If you stop using LATISSE®, your eyelashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months. Results may vary from eye to eye. There may be differences in eyelash length, thickness, fullness, pigmentation (darkness), number of eyelash hairs or the direction of eyelashes. If you experience any of these variations in your lashes, they will usually go away once you stop using LATISSE®.
Common side effects are itchy eyes, red eyes, and dry eyes. LATISSE® may cause increased brown pigmentation of the coloured part of the eye (Iris) which is likely permanent. Eyelid skin darkening may occur and may be reversible. Hair may grow on skin LATISSE® frequently touches.
Application of LATISSE® – proper application is Key
Step 1: Before applying LATISSE® every night, remove all makeup and contact lenses. Contact lenses can be reinserted 15 after the application.
Step 2: Remove the single use applicator and hold horizontally. Place one drop of LATISSE® solution on the area of the applicator closest to the tip but not on the tip.
Step 3: Draw the applicator along the base of the upper eyelashes going from the inner part of the eyelash to the outer part. DO NO APPLY in your eye or to the lower eyelashes
Step 4: Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid with a tissue.
