LATISSE™ is a prescription solution used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. It is the first and only approved product in Canada to grow natural eyelashes.
In one study, almost 80% of those who used the solution as prescribed by a physician, reported new lash growth over a 16 week period.
How Latisse Works
The Latisse solution is applied daily directly to the skin of the upper eyelid (at the base of the eyelashes) with the provided applicator. We’ll show you how to do it the first time at the clinic, and then you can do it at home!
The medical ingredient in the solution is the only substance approved by Health Canada that has been proven to encourage the growth of new lashes that are thicker, fuller, and darker than lashes grown without it. The medical ingredients are said to work by promoting the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, by increasing the length of this phase, and second, by increasing the number of hairs in this growth phase.
Latisse is not a permanent treatment, meaning that your eyelashes will go back to how they looked before using the solution.
