Eyelash Enhancement (Latisse®)

Latisse® is an FDA-approved prescription growth treatment designed to correct eyelash hypotrichosis (thin or inadequate eyelashes). Applying Latisse® to the base of the upper eyelashes once a day is an effective way to grow longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.

What to expect with eyelash enhancement

After applying Latisse® once a day to the base of the upper eyelashes only, you should begin to notice thicker, fuller, longer, and darker eyelashes in 4-8 weeks, with the treatment reaching maximum effect after week 15.

Side effects of Latisse® may include itchy eyes, redness and discoloration of the eyelid. Should you experience any of these side effects, speak with your doctor about whether you should continue the treatment.
