How Long Does It Take to See Results When Using Latisse®?

Most people are not born with naturally long, dark, and full lashes. The good news is that it is possible to grow them. If you have sparse eyelashes or if you lose your eyelashes at some point, you can benefit from Latisse® eyelash treatment. 

Although Latisse eyelash serum can help you get better eyelashes, it does not happen overnight. Here is information on the time it takes to see results when using this treatment. 


Using Latisse Eyelash Serum 

Latisse is a prescription eyelash serum that can help grow eyelashes. Applying the liquid solution to the upper eyelids can result in lusher and longer eyelashes. The treatment is progressive and works best when individuals use it continuously for several weeks.  

The initial reason for developing the serum was to treat glaucoma, but eye doctors noticed it was affecting the eyelashes. A few years later, the FDA approved the serum to treat sparse eyelashes. 


How Latisse Serum Works 

Eyelashes, just like the hair on the head, grow and fall out at intervals, and new ones regrow. Latisse is a topical solution that helps extend the growth period of the hair so it stays on longer. This is a medical drug, so an individual needs a prescription to access the serum.

The serum increases the number of lashes that grow back during the growth phase. This increase causes the eyelashes to look thick and dark and grow longer before the next fall-out phase. 


Effective Eyelash Treatment 

Studies have proven that Latisse is an effective treatment for eyelashes. After using the serum every day for 16 weeks, most people reported a 25 percent length increase. They also experienced a 106 percent increase in lash thickness. Since the results vary in individuals, the treatment is effective, but it is not ideal for everyone. 


How Long It Takes to See Results 

The results of Latisse treatment are not immediate since it usually takes between three to four months to see the full results. The first thing to change is the length of the eyelashes. Over time, and with daily use, users notice darkness and thickness. 

You can expect to see the full results of the treatment after 16 weeks. You will receive instructions on how to use the serum. 


Who Is a Candidate for Latisse?

Latisse is about 80 percent effective, meaning that about 20 percent of users will not experience the desired results. In many cases, the wrong use of the serum is responsible for the poor results. If you have a medical condition, the serum may not be for you. It is essential to consult a specialist before using the product and follow instructions for proper application. 

If you have not experienced positive results after using the serum for eight weeks, the treatment may not be for you. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should avoid using the serum because hormonal changes can affect the results. If you have an eye infection, glaucoma, or other eye condition, avoid using the solution. You can use eye makeup like mascara and eyeliner while using Latisse.
