LATISSEâ„¢ is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for the cosmetic growth of eyelashes. In the clinical study presented to the FDA, 78% of participants reported a significant increase in ALL of the following three measurements by week 16: length, fullness, and darkness.
This once-daily prescription treatment makes your own natural lashes longer, thicker and darker over time.
LATISSEâ„¢ on average makes lashes 25% longer, 106% thicker and 18% darker after 16 weeks of use. Like every beauty routine, applying LATISSEâ„¢ is all about consistency and precision. As the treatment progresses, youâ€™ll begin to see changes gradually. After applying LATISSEâ„¢ each night for 16 weeks, full results will be visible.
