Latisse is an eyelash treatment that is intended to grow your eyelashes longer, thicker and darker.
The active ingredient is bimatoprost, a prostaglandin analogue, that was originally used as an eyedrop for the treatment of glaucoma under the name Lumigan.
Researchers found that this treatment had eyelash growth as a side effect.
The eye drop bottle was rebranded as Latisse in 2008 and used as a topical treatment. Rather than applying a droplet to the eye, a small amount is applied to the skin at the base of the eyelashes using a precise applicator.
The effects are well known and many celebrities have “Latisse eyelashes”.
To get approval for sale safety trials were conducted. The average patient grew eyelashes that were 25% longer, 106% thicker and 18% darker. Side effects were seen in less than 3% of users with redness and skin irritation being the only one demonstrated for that study. Many people agree that this side effect is primarily due to excessive liquid being applied and this can be reduced by using as little fluid as possible for each application.
