Are you looking Latisse in the UK from Boots?
Boots do not offer Latisse in the UK.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is the brand name for bimatoprost 0.03% which is used to grow eyelashes and eyebrows longer, thicker and darker. Latisse can only be used under the guidance of a medical doctor and is only available in America.
Latisse is applied topically to the skin at the base of the hair, where it is absorbed into the follicle. It is classed as a prostaglandin analogue – prostaglandins are a group of molecules found in the body that are involved in many ways. They are commonly used to regulate various cycles and in this case they help regulate the growth cycle of hair. By applying the treatment you increase the signalling that tells the hair to devote more resources to the growth of that follicle to produce a larger hair.
How do you apply?
The Latisse treatment comes with fine applicators and the liquid itself is within a smaller dropper bottle, the same as an eye drop bottle.
Latisse is produced by a large pharmaceutical company called Allergan. They are famous for producing Botox and Juvederm. The treatment received United States Federal Drugs Association (FDA) approval in December 2008 for eyelash growth. For FDA approval Latisse had to undergo clinical trials looking at the safety of the treatment and to prove that it worked effectively. The average result was a 25% increase in length, 106% increase in thickness and 18% darker lashes. Latisse is a registered trademark of Allergan Inc.
What results will I achieve?
Medical studies have shown that normal results are eyelashes that are:
- 106% thicker
- 25% longer
- 18% darker
How soon do I see results?
The hair growth cycle takes about 2 or 3 weeks for the first results to become visible. The best results take a 16 weeks to develop – this is the time period required for your eyelashes to complete a complete cycle of growth, passing through all phases.

“Women looking for longer, fuller, darker eyelashes are no longer opting for false lashes or extensions, but are turning to this service which could spell the end of these – and standard mascara, too.”
“After five months of chemotherapy to blitz my ovarian cancer I had no body hair left as chemo kills the cells that produce hair follicles. I painted the treatment on like eyeliner every night and after six weeks my eyelashes were 25 percent longer. Within three months they were thicker and felt fabulously full. The result looked natural, only better. Without being able to pinpoint exactly what’s changed about me, friends tell me I’ve got the twinkle back in my eye. And when I see my new eyelashes in the mirror, I finally look like me again.”
“While you wait it out, you can help along your hairs using a treatment that promotes hair growth.”
“Like any girl, I want my lashes to be longer and thicker. I’ve tried lash-boosters, and they do make a difference, but I want more. So I’m turning to the hard stuff and road-testing a lash growing treatment that’s just become available in the UK. Only available on prescription, its offered from the Mylash service. One bottle lasted me three months and you’ll see a difference in four weeks (with best results in 16). I’m only three weeks in but I’m already noticing they’re thicker and, having seen the lashes of someone who’s been using it for 6 months (a-MAZING), I’m applying it religiously!”
The promise: Twenty five per cent longer, 106 per cent thicker and 18 per cent darker lashes in three months. The lowdown: Mylash uses a prescription only formula that was originally used in the treatment of glaucoma. It’s already a cult treatment in the US. After a consultation, I apply a thin layer daily along my lash line until the lashes reach my desired length (it takes three months). The results: Beyond what I hoped for – my lashes are longer, darker and thicker.
