How to Apply Latisse
Remember, it may take at least eight weeks before you begin to notice the effects of Latisse®!
- Try to incorporate Latisse® into your nightly routine — for example, apply it after you’ve brushed your teeth.
- Store the bottle near your other skin care products or toothbrush, so you won’t forget to apply it each night.
- Latisse® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% takes time to work. Only use it once a night, and don’t overuse it, as this may increase the chance of experiencing eye redness or irritation.
- If your eye makeup remover leaves an oily residue on your eyelids, wash off any excess oils with soap and water to ensure a clean surface before you apply Latisse®.
- Always use the sterile, disposable, FDA-approved applicators provided in the kit. Don’t try to apply Latisse® with a cotton swab or other materials. The applicator is specially designed to hold and release one drop.
- If you miss a dose one night, don’t apply more just to catch up. Simply apply Latisse® the next night and stay on schedule.
- Don’t let the tip of the bottle or applicator contact your fingers or any other unintended surface, in order to avoid contamination by common bacteria known to cause infections.
LATISSE® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, darker.
Important Safety Information
If you use/used prescription products for eye pressure problems, use Latisse® under doctor care. Latisse® may cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent. Eyelid skin darkening may occur and may be reversible. Only apply at the base of upper lashes. DO NOT APPLY to lower lid. Hair may grow on skin that Latisse® frequently touches. If you have eye problems/surgery, consult your doctor about use of Latisse®. Common side effects are itchy and red eyes. If discontinued, lashes gradually return to previous appearance.
You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
