Latisse Eye Drops

Available only with a prescription, Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) is used to enhance eyelashes, making them darker, thicker, and longer. It comes in the form of eye drops (a liquid) and is applied once daily at night.
When using Latisse eye drops, apply one drop to the applicator, then carefully apply the solution to the skin of the upper lash line. The medication works at the skin surface at the lash line, not directly on the lashes. Do not apply this product to the lower lid, and make sure to blot any excess medication to avoid exposure to the surrounding skin. This helps minimize hair growth in unwanted places.
Although most people tolerate Latisse well, these eye drops are not suitable for everyone. For example, you may not be able to use this medication if you have certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma. Possible side effects include eye itching and redness.
