Latisse® is a prescription medication used for the treatment of hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eyelashes) and used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Applied nightly directly to the skin of the upper eyelid at the base of the eyelashes, Latisse®can effectively grow longer, thicker and darker lashes in just 16 weeks!
This medication was developed by Allergan® after the users of a medication called Lumigan®, an eye drop medication used to treat Glaucoma, first noticed the beneficial side effect of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Allergan® recently marketed this product as the most recognized and most effective treatment for the growth of eye lashes.
