All women want their eyes to pop! And… all woman want to feel like all eyes are on them when they walk into a room and are being spoken too. There is nothing more powerful than the ability to capture someone else’s eyes with your eyes.

How does one do this?

Well, there are all types of makeup tricks to make your eyes stand out…Certain color shadows and techniques, eyeliner, contacts, the list goes on…

However, there is one asset females look to enhance but can never seem to find the right solution- eyelashes!

Longer, thicker, fuller lashes… hassle free!

Various mascaras may leave a smudgy mess behind, and eyelash curlers never seem to smooth out and lengthen the way those commercials and professional makeup artists show. Women spend tons of money on throw away, over the counter, fake eyelashes where the glue often leaves behind damaging residue. Not to mention they never look natural, even if you can manage to perfect the craft of applying them properly and effortlessly.

Over time, as we age, lashes tend to thin.

What is Latisse?

Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate, or not enough lashes, to grow lashes longer, fuller, and darker. There has been a growing interest in this product ever since it was introduced into the market as it is suggested to be the most effective treatment for lash production. Stunning, full eyelashes do not just happen overnight. Latisse produces lasting results based on gradual and regular use. The full outcome can be seen after about 16 weeks. Optimal results are achieved when you continue to apply the topical solution each night and thoroughly follow the instructions.

Latisse® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.



Discover the Latisse Difference

Since Latisse® solution is a growth treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes), it’s the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. This product is only available by prescription as we encourage you will need to consult with your doctor to see if it’s right for you.

Latisse Grows Lashes Longer, Fuller, & Darker

As the treatment progress, length is the first change you will begin to notice. You may start to see the difference in as little as 4 weeks. You will achieve full growth in about 16 weeks. These gradual results are effective because it is not an illusion of growth. It is real lash production. Latisse® solution is a once-nightly treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor.

How Latisse Works?

Latisse® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, Latisse® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.


  • Apply Latisse by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night with the sterile applicators supplied
  • The treatment spreads to your lower lash line automatically and naturally as you blink. (Do not apply directly to your lower lid)
  • Make sure you apply to a clean, fresh, makeup free face, and contact lenses are removed.
  • Always discard each applicator. They are not reusable. Re-using can lead to a more serious problem like an eye infection and increased chance of allergic reaction.
  • Apply carefully, as to not promote hair growth in other areas.

The History Behind Latisse

Latisse® was created by Allergan. In 2001, Allergan developed a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Many patients using this medication also began to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes as a side effect. This led Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing lashes. After a clinical trial, Latisse® was approved by the FDA in December of 2008.
