Having inadequate or insufficient eyelashes (hypotrichosis) is a very common condition that affects millions across the globe, and can cause individuals to be self-conscious about their appearance. Fortunately, this condition is now correctable with the help of LATISSE® eyelash enhancer. As the first and only FDA-approved treatment for hypotrichosis, LATISSE® is a topical at-home treatment that can actually stimulate the growth of longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes. LATISSE® can produce visible results in as soon as four weeks.

LATISSE® Eyelash Enhancer Benefits
LATISSE® can effectively produce thicker, fuller eyelashes for patients suffering from hypotrichosis or inadequate eyelash growth. The benefits of LATISSE® include:
- Increases the length, thickness, and darkness of eyelashes
- Increases the number of eyelashes produced during the growth phase
- Easy, once-daily topical application
- Results can often be seen within four weeks
- Available as a prescription
As long as patients maintain realistic expectations for results and are in general good health, any man or woman who has insufficient thickness of eyelashes may be a candidate for LATISSE® treatment. Your doctor will meet with you for an initial skin care consultation to discuss your needs and determine if this treatment is the best option for your goals.
LATISSE® Eyelash Enhancer Results
Due to the fact that eyelash growth is not possible overnight, our doctors encourage patients who use LATISSE® to remember that the treatment is designed to work gradually, and the results should become more prevalent over time. LATISSE® is comprised of a 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, and while most patients will notice visible results within four weeks, it often takes 16 weeks for the eyelashes to grow to their final state. The LATISSE® solution is applied daily for the first several weeks; once significant results are achieved, the solution can typically be applied less frequently.
In clinical studies 78% of LATISSE® users saw a significant increase in eyelash length, fullness, and darkness at 16 weeks. Mascara can still be used on eyelashes treated with LATISSE® to intensify the enhancement.
