Is LATISSE™ right for you?
While most everyone may want the look of longer, fuller and darker lashes, not everyone may be right for the treatment. Your doctor will have to evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. You should not use this product if you have an active eye condition, including an eye infection, or have broken or irritated skin on your eyelid. And if you are using products for elevated intraocular pressure, you should only use this treatment after consulting with your doctor.
What are the 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. This eyelash growth solution may cause other less common side effects which typically occur on the skin close to where it is applied, or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids.
Is It safe?
