Longer, fuller lashes in 6-12 weeks? “Yes! Dr. Levens asked several of us to try this product before he prescribed it for patients,” says Deirdre Fields, Director of the Levens Skin Rejuvenation Clinic. “It absolutely works.”
What is Latisse and what does it do? It is a topical prescription product from Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm). It’s the first and only product approved by the FDA to stimulate eyelashes to grow longer, thicker and darker. It is prescription and therefore only available through physicians.

While using Latisse your lashes will continue to grow without shedding as they normally would. They therefore will continue to grow longer until they have reached the desired length you choose. Maintenance treatments of 2-3 times per week will then maintain this desired length. Latisse can also stimulate eyebrow growth in some patients.

Enhanced eyelash growth is typically seen within 4-8 weeks but may take up to 3 months in certain patients. Once lashes have grown to their desired length, patients reduce applications to 2-3 times per week. This is necessary to maintain your results. If application is discontinued completely eyelashes will begin to shed normally and return to their pretreatment appearance in 2-4 weeks.
