LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis—inadequate or spare eyelashes—that helps grow your lashes longer, fuller and darker. It can only be prescribed by a doctor, and it is applied to the base of your upper eyelashes once daily. Effects can be seen in as little as 8 weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.
Hypotrichosis is the medical condition of abnormal hair patterns, that a person is not able to grow enough hair on a person’s body and in some cases it involves no growth of eyelashes. If the person has hypotrichosis after birth, then it may appear as a result of other medical, nervous conditions or wearing too much mascara. Hypotrichosis is not a condition that can cause hair loss so it should not be confused with alopecia.
To get started on LATISSE®, the patient must apply the solution to the upper eyelid every night which will begin to improve the thickness, length, and darkness of the eyelashes. Of course if the patients discontinue use of LATISSE® then the eyelashes will eventually lose effects of the solution.
