Do you suffer from a lack of eyelashes or do you think your lashes are too short?  If so, you’re in luck, as a solution called Latisse may be able to help you.Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for those with inadequate or not enough lashes. This prescription treatment for hypotrichosis is used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.Patients treated with Latisse in a clinical study have experience many positive effects. This includes a 25% increase in lash length, a 106% increase in lash thickness/fullness, and an 18% increase in lash darkness.Latisse works by increasing the growth cycle phase of the eyelash hair cycle know as Anagen. 

 Using Latisse is very easy. You can apply it yourself each evening to the base of the upper eyelashes. Each kit contains detailed instructions for proper application. It is recommended that patients remove any make-up, clean the upper eyelids and remove their contact lenses. After doing so, the patient uses the single-use applicator brush provided in the package, applying one drop of Latisse and placing it on the brush, applying it to the base of the upper eyelid lash margin.

Many patients also worry about whether or not Latisse will harm their eyes. Being that Latisse is an ophthalamic solution, it will not cause any harm if it gets into the eye.
