How does LATISSE work?
LATISSE is a bimatoprost ophthalmic solution that works to stimulate natural eyelash growth. This means that you’re actually growing real lashes! In clinical studies, LATISSE made eyelashes up to 106% fuller and 25% longer. For some research participants, lashes became an average of 18% darker as well. As an FDA-approved topical medication, you can feel confident that LATISSE is safe and effective.
LATISSE costs $130 per vial. To maintain consistent eyelash growth, you will have to apply consistently and continuously. When used correctly, a single vial will last you 4-6 months.
When will I see results?
It takes time for your eyelashes to grow, so you won’t experience new lash growth overnight. Your lashes will grow in gradually over a period of several weeks. Most clients experience optimal results by week 16 as long as the solution is applied daily. With each passing day during that time frame, you’re going to notice a remarkable difference in the appearance of your lashes.
Typically, you have an improvement in length first. As you continue using, you will begin to notice thicker and darker lashes. Some clients even experience a dramatic improvement by week eight. However, it’s important to keep going and apply daily as recommended.
Is eyelash growth from LATISSE permanent?
Though you’re growing your own real lashes with LATISSE, eyelash growth and fullness depend on the continued use of the product. This is the only way to ensure that your lashes continue staying longer, fuller, and darker.
How often do I apply LATISSE?
Dr. Camden can show you exactly how to apply the product and when you should expect to start noticing results. Generally, it’s best to apply once a day. Spread it on your lash line every night before bed, so the product can penetrate your eyelid skin, without the risk of rubbing.
If you miss a night, don’t worry about “playing catch up” and trying to apply a double dose on a single day. Just get back into your routine and apply LATISSE before bed as you normally do.
