Latisse™ is the first and only FDA approved product to grow your own natural lashes longer, fuller and darker. In as little as four weeks, you can visible results based on the eyelash growth cycle. The most dramatic results are evident in two to four months. If you want longer, fuller, darker eyelashes, you will want to know about Latisse.


Allergan, the company that introduced Botox to the world, now introduces Latisse, the first federally approved prescription drug for growing longer, lusher eyelashes. Latisse is the new eyelash obsession for women who have used every imaginable way to enhance their eyelashes with mascaras and false lashes. Latisse solves the problem of hypotrichosis, the medical term for inadequate eyelashes. Latisse treats hypotrichosis by enhancing eyelash prominence as measured by increases in the length, thickness, and darkness of the eyelashes, and is approved by the FDA.

Before Latisse

Latisse Before

The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, a compound derived from fatty acids that bind to receptors in the eyelashes that may be involved in the development and re-growth of hair follicles. Allergan, the manufacturer of Latisse has used bimatoprost since 2001 in Lumigan, an Rx eye drop that lowers eye pressure in people with glaucoma. (Glaucoma is a disease that may cause vision loss from damage to the optic nerve if too much pressure builds up in the eye.) The company began studying the potential of using a lower dose of topical bimatoprost to stimulate eyelash growth after Lumigan users developed unusually lush lashes.

With nightly applications and after a period of two to four months, 80% of the study group who used Latisse noted significant improvement in the appearance of their lashes. The typical improvement for Latisse users was a 25% improvement in eyelash length, 106% improvement in eyelash thickness and an 18% improvement in eyelash darkness.

Although Latisse is not recommended for the lashes of the lower eyelid, for many women the appearance of the eyebrow is every bit as important as the eyelash. These patients seem to be every bit as satisfied when they use Latisse here too.

Latisse is available at Oneonta Laser Derm. It is a medically perscribed product so a consultation with the doctor will be required. Please book your consultation today.
