Latisse™ solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
Latisse™ solution is intended for use on the skin of the upper eyelid margins at the base of the eyelashes. DO NOT APPLY to the lower eyelid. If you have a history of abnormal IOP, you should only use Latisse™ under the close supervision of your physician.
Latisse™ use may cause darkening of the eyelid skin which may be reversible. Although not reported in clinical studies, Latisse™ use may also cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely to be permanent.
You should tell your physician you are using Latisse™ especially if you have a history of eye pressure problems. You should also tell anyone conducting an eye pressure screening that you are using Latisse™.
The most common side effects after using Latisse™ solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. 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 of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
