LATISSE® Before and After

Have you heard of LATISSE® , the prescription drug applied to the base of eyelashes to generate longer, thicker and darker lashes. LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.

The Brooke Shields’ “Secret to Longer Lashes

Her great eyelashes didn’t just happen overnight. Brooke Shields, as an active spokesmodel, took a treatment journey to demonstrate the Latisse effect. It worked gradually and remarkably – with initial results at 4 to 8 weeks and with full results after 16 weeks.

The first key step to longer lashes with LATISSE® is a Consultation: At the minimum, your first  prescription should be obtained from a board-certified ophthalmologist, dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can have a quality consultation reviewing the pros and possible side effects of the medication, e.g. eye irritation, unlikely scenario for blue eyes to get darker. One prescription box of Latisse lasts about two months.

If you live in the Boston area, contact SkinHealth Centers to arrange a consultation with a board-certified, Harvard-Trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon. 

How it works: 

It’s a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results in as few as 8 weeks with full results after 12 to 16 weeks.


The effects of Latisse remain only as long as the product is used. It must be applied every day in the initial 16 weeks of treatment in order to see the complete and optimal lash growth effects.  Many patients begin a maintenance phase after those initial 4 months, applying the product every 2 to 3 days to maintain the effect, however the current recommended dosing instructions advise daily use of Latisse, even after the initial 16-week period.
