LATISSE® is a topical prescription solution designed to create fuller, longer, darker eyelashes. As opposed to mascara, which only temporarily coats the lashes to achieve a thicker look, LATISSE® is composed of a 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic formula that can actually help patients increase the growth of their natural lashes. Bimatoprost can both increase the length of your eyelash growth phase as well as increase the number of lashes that grow at any given time.
LATISSE® is a popular solution for our patients at Midland Plastic Surgery Center who want to combat inadequate eyelash growth (hypotrichosis) and for those who simply want to enhance the appearance of their eyelashes. FDA-approved since 2008, LATISSE® has helped hundreds of thousands of people transform their eyelashes and bring out their eyes with beautiful results. Daily application of LATISSE® over a four to eight week period will typically begin to yield significant results; once this occurs, the solution can be applied less frequently. Most patients experience optimal effects after about 16 weeks of treatment.
