Latisse FAQs


What is LATISSE?

LATISSE solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.

How is LATISSE Different From Other Products?

Only LATISSE has been approved by the FDA as a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes.

Should I Remove My Contact Lenses First?

As a precaution, it’s recommended that you remove your contact lenses because they can absorb an ingredient in LATISSE solution. You can put them back in 15 minutes after application.

What If I Forget to Apply LATISSE?

If you miss a dose, don’t try to “catch up”. Just apple LATISSE the next evening. Make LATISSE solution part of your evening routine, like brushing your teeth or removing your makeup. Using LATISSE more than once a day will not increase the growth of eyelashes more than daily use.

What should I do if LATISSE Gets in my Eye?

It is not expected to cause harm. Don’t rinse your eye.

What if I Stop Using LATISSE?

Your lashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.

Can I Continue to Wear Mascara While Using LATISSE?
