Latisse Eyelash Extender

A healthcare provider may prescribe Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) if you want fuller, thicker, and longer eyelashes. As an eyelash extender, Latisse works to increase the number of eyelash hairs that exist and increase the length of time the hairs stay in place.
However, it can take up to two months for most people to notice significant improvements with this product. Also, the effects are not permanent. After a person stops using Latisse, the lashes will gradually return to their previous state.
This medication is only available by prescription, and it is not approved for use in children.
