Latisse is the only FDA-approved treatment for growing longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. It contains the active ingredient bimatoprost and is backed up by several studies confirming it has real, measurable benefits as an eyelash growth treatment.
Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse, is believed to cause your eyelashes to spend more time in the anagen — or growth — phase of the hair growth cycle. This means your lashes will grow longer, thicker and darker in color after using the medication than they would naturally.
Does Latisse Therapy Work?
Unlike most serums and other products sold as eyelash enhancers, Latisse is a real medication that’s been tested in many clinical trials. Because of this, there are several scientific studies proving that it works:
The numbers don’t lie. In Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% clinical trials, eyelashes grew:
- 25 % Longer
- 106 % Fuller
- 18 % Darker
Is Latisse Therapy Easy to Use?
Latisse is an easy medication to use. Each bottle of Latisse comes with a sealed pack of sterile applicators. To apply the medication, all you need to do is apply one drop of Latisse to the brush of the applicator, then carefully apply it to your upper eyelid.
After you’ve applied Latisse to one eyelid, dispose of the applicator and use a new applicator to repeat the process for the other eyelid. Our guide to Latisse (linked above) also has full step-by-step instructions to help you properly apply the Latisse solution.
When you’re not using Latisse, you can safely store it in your medicine cabinet. All in all, Latisse is a very easy medication to apply.
Is Latisse Therapy Safe?
Latisse is a safe, effective medication that’s undergone a considerable amount of testing. Like other medications, Latisse can occasionally cause side effects. However, these are generally uncommon and only affect a small percentage of people who use Latisse.
Although Latisse is not linked to any major birth defects in humans, it’s not considered safe to use if you’re pregnant or nursing.
