Longer, darker lashes are every woman’s dream, but not everyone is born with long, thick eyelashes. Sure, you can wear false lashes or eyelash extensions, but these methods are not always time efficient or safe.

The good news: you can achieve long, luscious lashes with Latisse®. Latisse is a lash serum encourages your eyelashes to grow in length and thickness without exposing your eyes to toxic ingredients.

Here is a short guide on everything you need to know about Latisse to help you decide if the serum is a viable solution for you.

How is Latisse different from other eyelash serums?

While there are many eyelash serums that make great promises, Latisse is backed up by clinical research. Furthermore, Latisse is the only FDA-approved eyelash serum on the market. As a matter of fact, only a medical professional can prescribe this serum for your lashes.

The mechanism through which Latisse works isn’t fully understood, but specialists believe that bimatoprost —the generic name for Latisse — prolongs the hair growth cycle of eyelashes, thus making the hairs longer and denser.

Because Latisse can also grow new hairs, it’s a recommended treatment for patients who suffer from sparse hair growth or who’ve lost their eyelashes due to invasive treatments.

Although it’s recommended to keep Latisse away from your eyes, the serum won’t negatively impact the health of your eyes, unlike other products that may irritate your eyes.

Adding Latisse to your everyday beauty routine

You can apply Latisse on your upper lashes with a sterile applicator every night before bed. Don’t use Latisse on your lower lashes or let the serum drip onto your face, as it can stimulate hair growth in unwanted places.

Generally, Latisse is very safe when applied correctly, but in some rare cases, eyelid irritation and eyelid darkening may occur.

How long does it take to see results?

With daily use, it takes around three months to see the full results of Latisse.

Keep in mind that increasing the dose will not speed up eyelash growth and may lead to irritation. If you stop using the serum after your eyelashes become longer and thicker, your lashes will go back to their original length in 4-6 months.
