Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase this product?
LATISSE™ is available by prescription only through select physicians and it requires an appointment.

How soon will I see results?
In clinical trial, the majority of LATISSE™ users saw a significant improvement by two months.

Should I remove my contact lenses first?
As a precaution, it’s recommended that you remove your contact lenses because they can absorb an
ingredient in LATISSE™ solution. You can put them back in 15 minutes after application.

What if I forget to apply LATISSE™?
If you miss a dose, don’t try to “catch up.” Just apply LATISSE™ the next evening. Make LATISSE™ solution part of your evening routine, like brushing your teeth or removing your makeup. IMPORTANT: Using LATISSE™ more than once a day will not increase the growth of eyelashes more than daily use.

What should I do if LATISSE™ gets in my eye?
It is not expected to cause harm. Don’t rinse your eye. Be careful to keep the tip of the bottle or applicator from touching your fingers, objects, or surfaces in order to avoid contamination.

What if I stop using LATISSE™?
Your lashes are expected to return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.1

Can I continue to wear mascara while using LATISSE™?
Yes, you can use mascara in addition to LATISSE™ solution.
