Latisse

What is Latisse?

Latisse solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.



What is it intended for?


Latisse solution is intended for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY to the lower eyelid. If you have a history of abnormal IOP, you should only use Latisse under the close supervision of your physician.

What are the side-effects?

Use of Latisse may cause darkening of the eyelid skin which may be reversible. Although not reported in clinical studies, Latisse use may also cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely to be permanent.

You should tell your physician you are using Latisse especially if you have a history of eye pressure problems. You should also tell anyone conducting an eye pressure screening that you are using Latisse.

The most common side effects after using Latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. Latisse solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
