Achieve Fuller, Darker, Longer Natural Lashes

If you’ve ever longed for beautiful eyelashes without daily mascara applications or expensive eyelash extensions, then it’s time to meet Latisse®!

Latisse® is a revolutionary topical application that naturally promotes the growth of thicker, longer, darker eyelashes.

Latisse contains the active ingredient bimatoprost, which was initially formulated for treating glaucoma. Patients were surprised (and delighted) to discover their medication gave them more attractive lashes. Bimatoprost increases the growth phase of your lashes, making them grow longer, thicker, and darker all on their own.

Most patients describe a remarkable improvement in eyelash appearance between 1 and 2 months, with ideal results after 4 months.

Many clinical trials and studies conducted over several years have proven the safety and effectiveness of Latisse®. Not only does Latisse increase the percentage of eyelash follicles, but it also stimulates melanogenesis, which results in darker and thicker lashes. All with minimal side effects.

With well-documented clinical trials and proven results, the best way to know how well Latisse® works is to try it.

Latisse® FAQs

Latisse® is the only prescription eyelash enhancement product approved by Health Canada that results in natural eyelashes growing darker, thicker, and longer.

Results with Latisse® are noticeable in just 8 weeks, with the full effects often seen at 16 weeks. However, if you discontinue treatment, eyelash prominence will return to pre-treatment levels over several weeks to months.

Latisse® may increase brown iris pigmentation, which may be permanent. Therefore, patients should be aware of the potential risks of iris pigmentation when using Latisse®.

Some patients who use Latisse® may notice pigmentation along the upper eyelid margin where it is applied, producing the appearance of eyeliner. This slight colouring may go away after discontinuing Latisse®.

Soft contact lenses may absorb benzalkonium chloride, which Latisse® contains. Simply remove your contact lenses before applying Latisse®. You can reinsert them 15 minutes after using Latisse®.

For all other eye ailments and sensitivities, talk with your optometrist to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Latisse®.

Latisse® is the only prescription eyelash growth product in Canada, so it’s not possible to compare it to similar products. Unlike Latisse®, the safety and effectiveness of over-the-counter eyelash enhancement products have yet to be proven in clinical studies.
