LATISSE® solution (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% – is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.
Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
We want long eyelashes too! We personally use it and are amazed at the actual results. So yes, Latisse really works when used as directed.
In short, think of Latisse® as nourishment for your eyelashes…
The active ingredient in Latisse™ eyelash grower is called bimatoprost. Research suggests that growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase of the hair follicle. Bimatoprost can prolong this growth phase, hence you get longer lashes. It also appears to help generate extra lashes, so your lashes get fuller.
While the exact mechanism is unknown, it appears Latisse™ strengthens your lashes and increases the life cycle of each lash. Latisse™ also increases the pigment, or color of the lash. Thus, over the treatment course with Latisse™ eyelash grower, all of your own lashes become fuller, longer, thicker and darker. Naturally, when you stop using the product, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original state.
Your lashes don’t just look better using Latisse, they are better!
Latisse was clinically tested in a pivotal Phase III, multi-center, double-masked, placebo-controlled study to assess its safety and efficacy in which all endpoints (improved eyelash prominence, length, thickness and darkness) were met. Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse, was first approved in 2001 as a medical product to lower intraocular pressure in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Patients treated with bimatoprost for this specific eye condition experienced eyelash growth as a side effect.
The long-term safety of bimatoprost for therapeutic use has been recognized by the medical community and well established based on use in 32 clinical trials involving more than 5,700 glaucoma patients and more than 13 years of clinical trial experience. Given the existing and substantial clinical and post-marketing safety data with bimatoprost solution 0.03%, coupled with the positive results from the Phase III Latisse study, Latisse provides patients a clinically meaningful aesthetic benefit with a favorable safety profile.
