Get the lashes you've always dreamed of.

Hypotrichosis is a medical term that means that you don't have enough eyelashes. But now there's good news – LATISSE™ is a safe , effective treatment that has been shown to grow longer, fuller more luxurious eyelashes in as little as eight weeks.


What is LATISSE™?

LATISSE™ is the only prescription eyelash product approved in Canada to grow your natural eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. Visible results happen as early as eight weeks, with full, dramatic effects in 12 – 16 weeks.


How does LATISSE™ work?

LATISSE™ is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase. Exactly how this results in improved lashes is not yet fully known.


Results in just 8 weeks

In the clinical trial, the majority of LATISSE™ users saw significantly improved lashes within two months, with regular, daily use. By the end of four months, lashes were 25 percent longer, 106 percent fuller and 18 percent darker, with 78 percent of trial participants experiencing an improvement in overall eyelash prominence. The results? Dramatically longer, fuller and darker lashes!


How is LATISSE™ different?

Unlike over-the-counter eyelash products that condition and moisturize lashes, or mascara products that make your lashes look longer than they are, LATISSE™ has been clinically proven to actually grow noticeably longer, fuller and darker lashes. LATISSE™ is the only prescription product that is clinically proven and approved in Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still wear mascara if I use LATISSE™?

Yes, there is no problem in using mascara while you are using LATISSE™.


What if I forget to apply LATISSE™?

If you miss a night, don't apply extra to try to catch up. Simply apply LATISSE™ the next night as usual and stay on schedule.


How do I maintain my results?

To achieve the full effect of LATISSE™, you will need to use the product daily for 16 weeks. After that point, you can talk to your doctor about ongoing use.


What if I stop using LATISSE™?

If LATISSE™ is discontinued, lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.


Are there any possible side effects?

The most common side effects after using LATISSE™ solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients. LATISSE™ solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE™ is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.


If you develop a new ocular condition (e.g., trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have ocular surgery, or develop any ocular reactions, particularly conjunctivitis and eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician's advice concerning the continued use of LATISSE™ solution.


Could my eye colour change with LATISSE™?

There have been no reports of eye colour change in the LATISSE™ clinical study. However, there is the potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent. Increased iris pigmentation is associated at a very low incidence when bimatoprost is instilled directly into the eye.


What should I do if I wear contact lenses?

Contact lens wearers can use LATISSE™. They need to remove their lenses before applying the solution and can reinsert their contacts 15 minutes afterwards.


Why do directions say to only apply LATISSE™ solution to the base of the upper eyelashes?

The clinical studies of LATISSE™ were conducted on patients who applied the product to the base of their upper lashes only. DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid. There is the potential for hair growth to occur in areas where LATISSE™ solution comes in repeated contact with the skin surface. It is important to apply LATISSE™ only to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes using the accompanying sterile applicators, and to carefully blot any excess LATISSE™ from the eyelid margin to avoid its running onto the cheek or other skin areas.


What should I do if I get LATISSE™ into my eye?

LATISSE™ solution is an ophthalmic drug product. If any gets into the eye, it is not expected to cause harm. The eye does not need to be rinsed.


Who should NOT use LATISSE™?

Do not use LATISSE™ solution if you are allergic to one of its ingredients.


What are the ingredients in LATISSE™?

Active ingredient: bimatoprost
Inactive ingredients: benzalkonium chloride; sodium chloride; sodium phosphate, dibasic; citric acid; and purified water. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added to adjust pH. The pH during its shelf life ranges from 6.8 - 7.8.


What should I do if I experience eye redness?

Eye redness may occur immediately after use. Consult your doctor if the redness persists or you notice other symptoms as well. If you develop a new eye condition (e.g. trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly conjunctivitis and eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician's advice concerning the continued use of LATISSE™.


What should I do if I experience eye itching?

Eye itching may occur immediately after use. Consult your doctor if the itching persists or you notice other symptoms as well. If you develop a new eye condition (e.g. trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, have eye surgery, or develop any eye reactions, particularly conjunctivitis and eyelid reactions, you should immediately seek your physician's advice concerning the continued use of LATISSE™.

How Do I Apply LATISSE™

1

BEFORE APPLYING

Before applying LATISSE each night, ensure your face is clean, makeup and contact lenses are removed, and any other facial care products have already been applied.

Before Applying

2

PREPARE THE APPLICATOR

Remove an applicator from its tray. Then, holding the sterile applicator horizontally, place one drop of LATISSE solution on the area of the applicator closest to the tip but not on the tip.

Prepare the Applicator

3

APPLY TO SKIN USING APPLICATOR

Immediately draw the applicator carefully along the skin at the base of the UPPER eyelashes (where the eyelashes meet the skin) going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. DO NOT APPLY in your eye or to the lower lid because excess hair growth outside the treatment area may occur.

4

BLOT EXCESS

Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid with a tissue.

5

DISPOSE OF APPLICATOR

Dispose of the applicator after one use. Repeat for opposite eyelid, using a new sterile applicator to help minimize any potential for contamination from one eyelid to another.

Dispose of Applicator

Some important dos and don'ts.

  • Do not apply to the lower lid or in the eye and blot excess solution with a tissue.
  • Only use the sterile applicators supplied with LATISSE™ to apply the product.
  • Don't allow the tip of the bottle or applicator to touch fingers or any other unintended surface, as contamination by common bacteria is known to cause infections.
  • Remove contact lenses prior to applying LATISSE™. Contact lenses may be reinserted 15 minutes afterwards.
  • Remember, if you stop using LATISSE™, lashes will gradually return to their previous appearance.
