Latisse is a new eyelash treatment for eyelash hypotrichosis or for those simply desiring longer, fuller and darker lashes Latisse is applied topically to the base of the upper eyelashes just once a day. The full effects of Latisse treatment can be seen at 16 weeks and results will begin to show at week 4. Latisse treatment is FDA approved.
Latisse is believed to work by increasing the growth cycle (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle. Anagen is the growth phase of all hair. It is proposed that Latisse increases the length of the anagen phase and the number of hairs that grow in this phase.
Clinical trials of Latisse showed lashes were:
- 25% longer
- 106% fuller
- 18% darker
