Latisse 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.

The onset of effect with Latisse solution is gradual. In the clinical trial, the majority of Latisse users saw a significant improvement by 2 months.

How is Latisse different?

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.

Side Effects with Latisse?

Latisse solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse is applied, or in the eys.
