Brought to you by Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm), Latisse, also known as bimatoprost, is the only product scientifically proven and approved by the FDA to stimulate longer and thicker eyelash growth. Latisse is a topical product available only by prescription. Latisse was discovered to stimulate eyelash growth in patients who used Lumigan, a prescription eye drop for glaucoma.
The way Latisse works is lashes continue to grow without their normal shedding process, growing l onger until they have reached the desired length. To maintain the growth and desired length, treatments must be administered 2-3 times per week. Additionally, Latisse has also been shown to stimulate eyebrow growth in some patients.
