LATISSE solution is a prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. LATISSE is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in 2 ways: first it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
The onset effect with LATISSE solution is gradual. In the clinical trial, the majority of LATISSE users saw a significant improvement by 2 months.
Only LATISSE has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes. It also has been studied in clinical trial to demonstrate its safety and effectiveness.
