Latisse Eyelash Enhancement
What is LATISSETM?
LATISSETM solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker.
Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
How does it work?
LATISSETM is believed to affect the growth (anagen) 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 exact way it works is unknown.
How soon will I see results?
The onset of effect with LATISSETM solution is gradual. In clinical trial, the majority of LATISSETM users saw a significant improvement by 2 months.
How is LATISSETM different?
Only LATISSETM 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.
Can anyone use LATISSETM?
You should not use LATISSETM solution if you are allergic to one of its ingredients. Also, tell your doctor or eye care specialist if any of the following apply to you:
- Previously diagnosed with eye pressure problems: People with a history of eye pressure problems (specifically elevated intraocular pressure) should speak to an eye care specialist before starting LATISSETM
- Currently taking medication for eye pressure problems: People taking medication to lower their IOP should be closely monitored while using LATISSETM solution
- Have risk factors for glaucoma: People with risk factors for an eye condition called glaucoma, including a family history of glaucoma, should speak to an eye care specialist before starting LATISSETM
Is LATISSETM safe?
The safety and effectiveness of LATISSETM was shown in a clinical trial. Ask your doctor for more information about the safety of LATISSETM solution, and see the Important Safety Information on the back cover of this brochure.
What are the possible side effects with LATISSETM?
The most common side effects after using LATISSETM are eye itching or eye redness. These were reported by about 4% of users in clinical trial.1 LATISSETM solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSETM is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids.
If you develop a new eye condition (like an eye trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in vision, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly an infection and eyelid reactions, you should immediately talk to your doctor about whether or not to continue using LATISSETM solution.
