LATISSE® is a prescription medication used to treat hypotrichosis, a condition that results in inadequate eyelash growth. It contains an active ingredient called bimatoprost, which helps to promote the growth of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
To use LATISSE®, a thin line of the solution is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes once a day. It is important to follow the application instructions carefully, as using too much or too often can lead to side effects such as redness, itching, and darkening of the skin around the eyes.
Although rare, more serious side effects can occur with LATISSE®, such as changes in eye color or eyelid skin darkening. It is important to talk to your doctor if you experience any unusual symptoms or if you have a history of eye problems.
Despite the potential for side effects, LATISSE® has been shown to be an effective treatment for hypotrichosis, helping many people to achieve longer, thicker and more beautiful eyelashes. If you are interested in using LATISSE®, schedule an appointment with Dr. Neily to determine if it is the right treatment option for you.
