LATISSE™ solution is an FDA-approved prescription treatment for thin or thinning eyelashes. It helps lashes grow longer, thicker and darker and it works by increasing the length of the eyelash hair and the number of hairs in its growth phase. LATISSE™ is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Many of our Washington DC-area skin care patients report the dramatic difference LATISSE™ makes to their lash length and fullness.
While effects are gradual, most of our skin care patients see significant improvement within two months. LATISSE™ is approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, the medical name for thinning lashes. It also has been studied in clinical trial to demonstrate its safety and effectiveness. There are possible side effects, which you can read about here.
