Restoring Your Lashes with Latisse

Published on March 16, 2018

For those who are not happy with their lashes, there is an excellent solution available for them now. Latisse – the revolutionary treatment, can help restore your lashes in a short amount of time.

Details About Latisse

Latisse is a not a cosmetic product, but rather a medication that can be prescribed by a medical professional for eyelash growth.

Bimatoprost is a medicine that is used to treat eye conditions such as glaucoma. It was found useful in the growth of eyelashes as well. Latisse contains bimatoprost and it can be used to get thicker and longer lashes with regular use. Your lashes can even become darker if you apply the solution regularly. The treatment is FDA approved and can only be obtained from a doctor.


You need to use Latisse every day for a few weeks in order to experience results. After cleaning your face and hands, you can apply the solution with an applicator that comes with the medicine. Simply dab the medicine along the upper lashes and blink as you would normally.

It is not recommended to use it on the lower lashes. Excess liquid from the upper lids comes into contact with the lower lids for an even distribution. If you apply more solution than is required, it is likely to flow down your face and can trigger hair growth on the cheeks or elsewhere. You will need to follow the directions carefully in order to avoid any potential complications.

After a period of time of regularly applying the solution, you will notice a significant improvement in the look of your lashes. They will appear thicker, longer, and more beautiful. Once you have reached the desired lash length, your doctor may adjust the dosage. Continuous use is required in order to maintain the look of the lashes.

You can use makeup and wear contact lenses after you have applied Latisse. You can use it every morning or night depending on your convenience and preference.


Remember to discard applicators once you have used them. Reusing applicators can cause issues like eye infections to occur. Also, remove contact lenses and all traces of makeup before applying Latisse.

Always consult with a qualified doctor (such as a dermatologist or an ophthalmologist) if you wish to use Latisse. Refrain from buying Latisse from anyone who is not qualified to prescribe it. Latisse is a medicine and its use requires care and proper dosing.

If you experience any itching in the eye after using Latisse, you should tell your doctor about it. Instances such as these, however, are not common.

If you use any medicine for the eyes such as to treat glaucoma or any other problems you face, let your doctor know about it during your initial consultation. If you have eye problems like conjunctivitis, you may need to wait for some time before using Latisse. If you are pregnant or nursing, you will also need to wait for a few months before you can use Latisse.
