What is Latisse™?

Latisse™ solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. For many women in Toldeo, Latisse™ offers the results they desire. We invite you to consult with Toledo plastic surgeons Dr. Colville and Dr. Zavell to determine if Latisse™ is right for you.

Latisse comparison

How does it work?

Latisse™ is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in 2 ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. The exact way it works is unknown at this time.

How soon will I see results?

The onset of the effect from Latisse™ solution is gradual. In clinical trial, the majority of Latisse™ users saw a significant improvement by 2 months.

How is Latisse™ different?

Only Latisse™ has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes. It also has been studied in clinical trial to demonstrate its safety and effectiveness.

Can anyone use Latisse™?

You should not use Latisse™ solution if you are allergic to one of its ingredients. Also, tell your doctor if any of the following apply to you:

  • You were previously diagnosed with eye pressure problems. People with a history of eye pressure problems (specifically elevated intraocular pressure) should speak to an eye care specialist before starting Latisse™.
  • You are currently taking medication for eye pressure problems. People taking medication to lower their IOP should be closely monitored while using Latisse™ solution.
  • You have risk factors for glaucoma. People with risk factors for an eye condition called glaucoma, including a family history of glaucoma, should speak to an eye care specialist before starting Latisse™.

Is Latisse™ safe?

The safety and effectiveness of Latisse™ was shown in a clinical trial. Ask your doctor for more information about the safety of Latisse™ solution.

What are the possible side effects with Latisse™?

The most common side effects after using Latisse™ are eye itching or eye redness. These were reported by about 4% of users in clinical trial. Latisse™ solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where Latisse™ is applied or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids.

If you develop a new eye condition (like an eye trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in vision, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly an infection and eyelid reactions, you should immediately talk to your doctor about whether or not to continue using Latisse™ solution.
