Does Latisse Work?

Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) is a medicine prescribed to help increase length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes. But does Latisse work?
Latisse has been shown to be effective at increasing eyelash length, thickness, and darkness. However, it does take some time to work. The effects are noticed gradually, and most people will not notice significant improvements for about two months. In addition, the effects are not permanent. After a person stops using this product, the lashes will gradually return to their previous state.
It is thought that Latisse works by increasing the number of eyelash hairs that are in the active growth phase and by increasing the length of time the hairs stay in this phase.
