Learn more about Latisse and its benefits.
What is Latisse?
Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is the first and only prescription eyelash serum that is FDA-approved for treating hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes).
Since its FDA-approval in 2008, about 8.7 million of Latisse kits have been sold worldwide.The product works gradually over time: lashes become longer, darker, and thicker. Clinical studies demonstrate that Latisse has improved the look of length, fullness, and darkness of eyelashes in the vast majority of people who used the product over a 16-week period. Troy Laser Center has the 5ml Latisse kit available for your eyelash enhancement.

What it treats
- Short eyelashes
- Thinning eyelashes due to natural aging
- Hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes)
How Do You Use Latisse?
For the optimal effect Latisse is to be applied daily, one drop of serum per eye, at the base of the eyelashes, for the time period of 16 weeks. The improvement occurs gradually over time with some positive changes starting at week 4-6, but for the best and full result patient should use it for 16 weeks.
Recovery time & side effects
Since Latisse is a liquid serum, it is very easy and convenient to apply with no recovery time. The most common side effects include dry eye and redness and irritation at the side of application- these are temporary and resolve within few days.
Patients notice a significant improvement in eyelash prominence starting with fullness/thickness, followed by longer length and darker lashes. The key to achieving best results with Latisse is, once again, consistency in daily application. Patients must remember- once the serum application is discontinued, so will the results. It usually takes a few weeks after the last day of application for the lashes to return to their original base state.
Here’s a look at how Latisse works.
How Latisse Works
Latisse is by prescription only but since Troy Laser Center is a medical facility with multiple physicians on staff, you can purchase the serum directly from us. If you are interested in using Latisse, please contact Troy Laser Center to set up a mini consultation; you can then purchase the serum at the same time.
If you are a first time Latisse patient, we strongly recommend signing up for the Alle Rewards program. The exclusive rewards program by Allergan, the maker of Latisse, allows you to earn coupons towards savings on future purchases.
Latisse is believed to enhance eyelashes by prolonging the length of the active phase (anagen) of the hair growth cycle. It increases the percentage of eyelash hairs during the active phase and extends the growth.
The serum works gradually where you can start to notice longer lashes at 4 weeks, fuller and darker lashes at 8 weeks, and full dramatic results at 16 weeks.
