Eyelash Enhancement

What is Latisse? LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%) is an FDA approved treatment for eyelash enhancement and has been on the market since early 2009. Latisse is a daily solution applied topically to the eyelashes. In a clinical study, patients noticed improvement in two months with full results after four months. Dr. Schweiger has prescribed Latisse to many patients and thus far all have reported noticeable success with it. The most common side effects from Latisse are an itching sensation in the eyes or eye redness, which were reported in under 5% of patients. Rare side effects include darkening of the eyelid skin, which is reversible. Latisse users should also know that a few patients who used topical bimatoprost for glaucoma (they put it in the eye directly) had a change in color of the pigmented part of the eyeball (from blue to brown). While this has not been seen yet in users who apply Latisse to their eyelashes, it is a theoretical potential side effect of which patients should be aware.
