Latisse Eyelash Growth

If you have inadequate eyelashes, your healthcare provider may prescribe Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution). As an effective medicine for eyelash growth, Latisse helps to increase eyelash length, thickness, and darkness.
However, it does take some time for Latisse 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 Latisse, the lashes will gradually return to their previous state.
This product is only approved for use in adults and is thought to work 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.
