Chicago Latisse Provider

What is Latisse?

Latisse Before & After Photo GalleryLATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.

What is Hypotrichosis?

Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.

How does it work?

The active ingredient in LATISSE® is bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because bimatoprost can also prolong this growth phase.

When will I see results?

LATISSE® users may see results starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks. The growth is gradual overnight, over time.

Is Latisse a replacement for mascara?

No, LATISSE® does not work in place of mascara. However, mascara is a nice complement to LATISSE® to help make your new longer eyelashes look even more attractive
