Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) is a medication used for cosmetic purposes to help grow longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. It is the first and only prescription treatment that has been clinically proven to grow lashes. It is a liquid that is applied to the lash line of the upper eyelid using a special applicator brush.

Latisse is used for the treatment of hypotrichosis of the eyelashes (not enough eyelashes) and works by increasing the length, thickness, and darkness of the eyelashes over time. Bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Latisse, is believed to prolong the anagen (growth) phase of the eyelash cycle, leading to longer and fuller lashes.

Uses and Dosage

Bimatoprost is applied to the lash line of the upper eyelid using a special applicator brush. To use the solution, you should wash your hands and face thoroughly with soap and water first. Then, place one drop of the solution onto the disposable sterile applicator and apply it evenly along the skin of the upper eyelid margin, at the base of your eyelashes. Use a new, clean applicator for each eye to prevent the risk of infection. Bimatoprost is only approved for use on the upper lashes and should not be applied to the lower lashes.

The recommended dosage of Bimatoprost to treat hypotrichosis of the eyelashes (Latisse), the recommended dose is one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily, administered in the evening. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider, as the dosage may be different depending on your individual needs.

Bimatoprost (Latisse) can cause darkening of the color of your eyes and eyelids over time, which may become permanent for brown eye colors. The skin around your eyes might also become darker, but this typically resolves once you stop using the medication.

Bimatoprost (Latisse) can cause hair growth on areas other than your eyelids, particularly on skin that frequently comes in contact with the medication like the cheeks. To avoid this, apply bimatoprost (Latisse) only to the upper eyelid's base where the eyelashes grow. Wipe away excess solution to prevent it from getting onto other parts of your face or body.
