How Long Does Latisse Take To Work?


Approved by the FDA in 2008, Latisse is a relatively new prescription medication that treats sparse or insufficient eyelashes by stimulating eyelash growth. It is applied with a sterile applicator to the lash line of the upper lashes—never the lower lashes. The medication will reach the lower lashes as you blink, so it does not need to be applied directly to the lower lash line. Latisse is usually applied once a day, in the evening. The Baltimore, Maryland area eye surgeons at Katzen Eye Group can provide additional information about Latisse and how it can help restore your lashes.

Latisse does not provide instant results. It usually takes at least two months before the lashes begin to thicken, with full results occurring within three to four months. In order to see full results from Latisse, you must be diligent in applying it nightly. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will in time return to their previous thickness. After three or four months, at which time your lashes should be noticeably fuller, your doctor might scale your dosage back to once every other night instead of every night.

Be sure to closely follow the instructions provided when using Latisse. Latisse is a prescription medication, derived from a medication used to treat glaucoma. It can cause changes to your internal eye pressure, so it is important not to change your dosages of Latisse. Increasing the dosage will not speed the results, and introduces additional risks that are not present if you apply Latisse according to directions.

If you would like to find out more about Latisse and what it can do for you, please contact the eye surgeons at Katzen Eye Group in Baltimore, Lutherville and Towson, Maryland.
