Like any new product, you’re going to have questions about how the treatment works, how soon you’ll see results, and, of course, how safe the product is. This site was intended to give you a basic understanding of the product, but you will need to talk to your doctor to see if LATISSE™ is right for you.
The first step is talking to your doctor
To find out if LATISSE™ is right for you, please consult your doctor. While any doctor can prescribe LATISSE™, we encourage you to use our Find a Doctor tool to help you locate a doctor who may be more likely to know about this FDA-approved treatment.
Is LATISSE™ right for you?
While most everyone may want the look of longer, fuller and darker lashes, not everyone may be right for the treatment. Your doctor will have to evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. You should not use LATISSE™ if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. And if you are using products for elevated intraocular pressure, you should only use LATISSE™ after consulting with your doctor.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effects after using LATISSE™ solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. LATISSE™ solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSEÂ™ is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
Is LATISSE™ safe?
LATISSE™ is an FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. The FDA reviewed clinical study results to verify the identity, potency, purity, and stability of the ingredients, and demonstrated that the product is safe and effective for its intended use if used as prescribed.
