What Is Latisse®?
For those looking for longer, fuller lashes, Latisse® is the only FDA-approved treatment proven to improve the look and length of lashes safely and effectively. While Latisse is only available with a prescription, the eyelash growth experienced with Latisse is long-lasting if daily use is maintained. Since being FDA-approved in 2008, Latisse has swept the nation. Clients love the improved length, fullness, and darkness of their natural lashes after using this serum. After all, sticky, clumpy mascara can only do so much; at the end of the day, it may do more harm than good (especially if you’re not willing to spend $25+ on quality brands).
Even though you apply Latisse on your own, the medical professional you choose to administer is crucial. At Re:nu 180 Medspa, we care about our client’s results, and while they can vary per person, we’ll ensure that your Latisse journey goes smoothly. Rejuvenation might be our passion but making the journey a little easier is our specialty. Your dream lashes await you at Re:nu 180 Medspa.
How Do You Use Latisse?
Latisse comes with simple instructions, but it’s essential to follow them precisely to avoid any risks. The results from this eyelash enhancer can be dramatic if you remain consistent with your use. In most cases, Latisse users apply the serum at home. It needs to be carefully brushed onto the base of the upper lash line every evening for eyelash growth to occur. It’s best to apply at night before bed because that’s typically the time of day when you have a fresh face, and don’t plan on adding any products until several hours later. If you intend to apply Latisse before other products, wait 15 minutes so the serum can dry. It’s also best to remove contact lenses during application if you wear them.
Latisse comes with an applicator to minimize the mess and maximize the precision of the application. It’s essential to avoid getting in or around your eyes when applying eyelash enhancers, as some side effects can be permanent. You simply add a drop of solution to the applicator, then apply it to the base of your lash line, where the lashes meet your skin. Do not apply this solution to your lower lids as it will spread naturally to the lower eyelid. Once you have used the solution, it’s best to blot the surrounding areas of your eyes.
Now you’re done, right? Not quite. Though you’ve completed one application of Latisse, it’s important to be consistent and apply it daily. If by chance you miss a day, don’t try to make up for it by doubling the dose of the solution the following day. Stay precise with the amount you’re applying, and be sure to make a reminder for your daily application. Using more than the recommended amount will not make your lashes grow any faster or longer.
The final step is to be patient. While you may start observing differences in your eyelashes after a week, know that results vary. Some may notice longer lashes after about a month, and many should experience the full effects in approximately four months.
How Does Latisse Work?
The active ingredient in Latisse is bimatoprost, originally used as an eye drop to treat pressure inside the eye. During FDA clinical trials, many patients experienced incredible eyelash growth as a side effect, which led Allergan to study bimatoprost further and develop it as a prescription treatment for people desiring longer, fuller eyelashes. Patients also experienced darker eyelashes over time, making this serum the holy grail.
The exact way Latisse works is unknown; however, many experts speculate that it lengthens the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle while also increasing the number of hairs grown.
What to Expect After Latisse
With daily use, most clients report noticeable eyelash growth within a month. After about four months of consistent use, you will see the full effects of Latisse, and the eyelash growth will remain as long as you maintain your Latisse routine. It takes time to grow long, beautiful, and healthy lashes, but you’ll get there faster using Latisse. If you stop using Latisse, your results will fade over the next few months, and your eyelashes will return to how they looked before the Latisse treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Eyelash enhancer is a natural, simple application that leads to fuller lashes. Enhancers make it easy to avoid false lashes and avoid purchasing expensive mascara products.
Not only is Latisse® the only FDA-approved treatment proven to safely and effectively grow longer and fuller lashes, but it’s also one of the most popular serums on the market. It’s simple to use, requires little time, and has minimal mess. So, Latisse will do wonders if you struggle with not having enough eyelashes.
You apply Latisse by dabbing the serum on the base of your upper eyelashes using the sterile applicator supplied by your professional. Discard each applicator after use. Re-using them may result in potential problems like eye infections. You should never apply the Latisse solution on the bottom eyelashes; the application needs to be precise for optimal results. However, applying it to your upper eyelid will spread naturally to the lower eyelid.
For the best results, we recommend applying Latisse in the evening before bed when you have fresh, makeup-free skin. Repeat this routine daily, and you’ll have fabulous lashes in no time!
You may see eyelash growth in as little as a month with consistent use, but this will depend on the patient. Many should experience full desired results in approximately four months.
Latisse was primarily created by accident back in 2001. Allergan had developed a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure but noticed it had the byproduct of growing patients’ eyelashes to beautiful proportions! Hence, Latisse was born. It has since become one of the world’s most popular and safest eyelash growth treatments.
If you stop using Latisse completely, your results will fade over the next few months, and your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance before the Latisse treatment. On the other hand, if you miss an application, don’t worry. Stay with your routine and do not apply more than recommended. Using Latisse more than once daily will not speed up the lash-enhancing process.
Latisse is only available by prescription, but at Re:nu 180 Medspa, getting started has never been simpler.
