Discover the Latisse® difference at Southern Dermatology, the first FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes.
Tired of applying coat after coat of mascara to make your lashes look longer and more voluminous? Latisse® is a growth treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, the first last growth product of its kind available by prescription. This once-nightly treatment is applied topically at the base of the upper eyelashes as instructed by your dermatologist. Then, gradually, the results show. Many patients see more length in as little as four weeks with full results at 16 weeks. This isn’t an illusion of results, it’s real last growth!
The active ingredient, bimatoprost is responsible for the lash growth, renewing your appearance and making you look younger. Latisse® is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, increasing the length of the phase before increasing the number of hairs in the growth phase.
Latisse® was originally created as a medicated eye drop solution to decrease ocular pressure associated with glaucoma. Many patients using the original medication noticed fuller, thicker and darker lashes as a side effect. After a clinical trial, the FDA approved Latisse® in December 2008 to treat hypotrichosis, inadequate or too few eyelashes.

FAQs About Latisse®:
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effects after using LATISSE® are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness, which were reported in approximately 4% of clinical trial patients. LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur close to where LATISSE® is applied. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and redness of the eyelids.
HOW DO I USE LATISSE CORRECTLY?
LATISSE® solution is intended for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. Refer to the illustration below. DO NOT APPLY to the lower lid.
WHAT IS LATISSE?
LATISSE® is an FDA-approved treatment to grow eyelashes for people with inadequate or not enough lashes.
DOES LATISSE WORK?
For the majority of patients, LATISSE® has worked well to grow their lashes, which mirrors what we saw in the LATISSE® clinical study. The lashes grow gradually over time with some people beginning to see longer lashes in about four weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
No one knows exactly how LATISSE® works; however, we believe it does so by increasing the growth cycle (anagen) phase of your eyelash hair cycle. Anagen is the growth phase of all hair. We believe that it increases the length of the anagen phase and the number of hairs in this growth phase.
HOW IS LATISSE DIFFERENT?
LATISSE® is the first FDA-approved product to grow lashes longer, fuller and darker for those who do not have enough lashes. It has been studied for safety and efficacy and is available only by prescription.
WHY DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION FOR LATISSE?
LATISSE® is a prescription medication to grow the eyelashes longer, fuller and darker, indicated for people with inadequate or not enough lashes. LATISSE® needs to be prescribed by a doctor to assure the proper treatment and use.
- Do not use LATISSE® if you are allergic to one of its ingredients. If you use/used prescription products for eye pressure problems, use LATISSE® under doctor care. May cause brown darkening of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent. LATISSE® may cause eyelid skin darkening which may be reversible. Only apply at base of upper lashes. DO NOT APPLY to lower lid. Hair may grow outside the treatment area. If you have eye problems/surgery, consult your doctor. Common side effects include itchy and red eyes. If discontinued, lashes gradually return to previous appearance.
These are not all the possible side effects of LATISSE®. For more information, please talk to your doctor.
