Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment to create longer, thicker and darker lashes!
Latisse™ (bimatoprost) is a topical prescription product from Allergan (the makers of Botox® and Juvederm®), and is the first and only scientifically proven product approved by the FDA to stimulate eyelashes to grow longer and thicker. It has been used as a glaucoma medication for years, and was inadvertently found to stimulate eyelash growth.
Latisse™ is applied daily until you’re happy with the length of your eyelashes, and can then often be maintained at that desired length with 2-3 applications per week.
Side effects appear to be limited to temporary redness of the eye or eyelids, and rarely a darkening of the skin under the eyes or the irises.
|Latisse is a prescription medicine and only available through cosmetic physician offices, not pharmacies. This product launches in Canada on November 15, 2010 and will be sold at the Toronto Dermatology Centre.|
Expected price will be $150/bottle which typically lasts a month with daily application.
