Q&A – Latisse Prescription Eyelash Enhancement

Q: How long has Latisse been on the market?

A: Latisse has only been on the market for about 6 months, but its related safety record as an eye drop solution spans well over 10 years.

Q: Why do I need a prescription for Latisse?

A: Latisse can result in eyelash improvement of 105% in thickness and over 25% in length. Latisse is not an over-the-counter medication. The FDA approved Latisse as a prescription medication to treat hypotrichosis, i.e. reduced amount of eyelash growth

Q: How can Latisse enhance my lashes?

A: Latisse is thought to affect the growth stage of eyelashes by increasing the duration of the growth phase while increasing the number of hairs in the growth phase.

Q: How do I use Latisse?

A: Latisse is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes nightly for 16 weeks. After 16 weeks, the application can be reduced to every 2-3 days to maintain growth. Latisse is not applied to the lower eyelashes. However, during sleep some of the medication will diffuse across to these lashes increasing them as well.

Q: When will I see results?

A: Most people begin to see an increase in their lashes after about 3 or 4 weeks. By 16 weeks the lashes will have reached their full length and thickness. Discontinuation of Latisse will result in a return of the lashes to their previous state.

Q: Is Latisse expensive?

A: In Dallas, the price of a one-month supply of Latisse has been about $100 to $120.

Q: Are there Latisse alternatives that work the same way?

A: Right now, there are no comparable products on the market. Other products that claim to increase lash thickness and length are usually conditioners, which will not stimulate eyelash growth.
