LATISSE®

*Please call to purchase*

A medication known as Bimatoprost allows you to grow your own lashes. Latisse lengthens the growth phase of your eye lashes. When each hair reaches what would normally be its maximum length before falling out, instead of falling out it keeps growing. While those lashes become longer, new lashes come in to their growth phase. Within a matter of weeks, those lashes grow long as well and then within a few more weeks lashes become thicker and longer.

Benefits

  • Increases eyelash length
  • Increases thickness of lashes
  • Lashes become darker in colour

How is it used?

  • Apply each night before bed by applying a drop from the bottle to one of the sterile, disposable applicators.
  • Draw applicator across clean upper lashes where the eyelash meets the skin.
  • Fuller and longer lashes can be expected in as little 4 weeks and full results in 12-16 weeks.
  • To maintain effect, continued treatment is required and application may be reduced to every other night.

Who cannot use Latisse?

  • If you are taking, or have recently taken, any other medicines, including other bimatoprost products, or those not prescribed. Use of Latisse in conjunction with other bimatoprost products may reduce the effectiveness of these products to lower intraocular eye pressure.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding a baby, you should ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
  • If you have an active eye infection or inflammation (e.g. uveitis) any other eye conditions such as active eyelid disease, infection or broken or irritated eyelid skin or eye injury.
  • If you need to have eye surgery.
  • If you are allergic to bimatoprost, to any product ingredients, including benzalkonium chloride, or to any of the parts or the container.
  • If you are using LUMIGAN or other products in the same class for elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), or if you have a history of abnormal IOP, you should not use LATISSE.
  • Latisse contains a preservative called benzalkonium chloride which may discolor soft contact lenses if the eye is exposed. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using Latisse. They may be reinserted 15 minutes after Latisse application.

Side Effects

  • Like all medications, Latisse can have side effects. Most of the side effects are not serious.  The most common side effect after using Latisse solution are an itching sensation in the eyes/ or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients.
  • Latisse use has been associated with iris pigmentation and this is the result of using more medication that is required.  It is extremely important to strictly observe the following measures.  Do not apply directly to the eye.  Do not add more than one drop to an applicator.  Blot any excess solution outside the upper eyelid margin with a tissue or other absorbent mate-rial.  Do not administer the medication more than once daily. Do not reuse applicators.
  • Latisse use may also cause darkening of the eyelid skin which may be reversible in most patients. It is possible for hair growth to occur in other areas of your skin that Latisse frequently touches. Any excess solution outside the upper eyelid margin should be blotted with a tissue or other absorbent material to reduce the chance this from happening. Latisse solution is intended for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY to lower eyelid.
