Tired of short lashes or having to wear extensions? Wait no longer…. Latisse® will make your lashes fuller, darker and longer in a matter of months. Latisse® is a breakthrough treatment that delivers significant and proven improvements in the appearance of lashes. It is the only FDA and Health Canada approved treatment for thin lashes.
How do I apply Latisse® and when do I notice results?
Application is easy, just apply one drop to the upper base of clean lashes with one of the brushes that come in the Latisse® box, or use an eye shadow brush for more precise application. (That’s what we recommend!) You will see results in 8 to 10 weeks: increased length, fullness and darkness of your lashes. By 16 weeks, you will be enjoying the full effects of Latisse®.
If you want your lashes to go back to their previous length and fullness, just discontinue the Latisse® and your lashes will return to their previous appearance in approximately 16 weeks.

Why choose Latisse®?
Latisse® is the only eyelash enhancing serum studied with scientific scrutiny. The active ingredient is Bimatoprost.
A study of 281 females using Latisse® revealed that the following changes to eyelashes from baseline in 16 weeks:
- Fullness increased to 106%
- Length increased by 25%
- Darkness increased by 18%
Although side effects are rare, they may occur if Latisse® comes in contact with your eyes and can usually be avoided with careful application. When applied properly, 95% of Latisse® will stay on your eyelid and only 5% will come into contact with your eye. Only 4% of Latisse® users experience a side effect. Latisse® should not be applied to the lower eye lid.
The most common side effects are:
- Itchy eyes
- Eye redness
- Eye dryness
Uncommon side effects are:
Darkening eyelid skin at the lash-line. This effect may be reversible when Latisse® is discontinued. Hair may grow in other areas where Latisse® comes into repeated contact. This effect is reversible when Latisse® is discontinued. In theory, iris eye colour could darken (eg. turning blue eyes brown) however this has never been reported when Latisse® is applied to an eyelid. This effect is only a risk when bimatoprost is applied directly to an eye as an eye drop for an extended period of time. This effect is not reversible when Latisse® is discontinued.
Latisse® should not be used if you:
- are pregnant or breast feeding
- are prescribed a prostaglandin analog eye drop for glaucoma
- have an eye infection
- are having eye surgery
- have an allergic response to Latisse®
