Latisse is an FDA-approved drug that lengthens, thickens, and darkens your eyelashes. It has the same main ingredient as a drug called Lumigan, a medication used to treat glaucoma.
With regular applications along the lash line of your upper eyelid, Latisse gradually encourages growth of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. For the best results, you must use Latisse daily for at least two months. Effects to your eyelashes will remain as long as you continue to use the medication. When you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance.
Potential side effects of Latisse include:
Although some of these side effects can resolve when the medication is stopped, changes in iris color are likely to be permanent.
