LATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for eyelash hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough eye lashes), used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker.

There’s been a growing interest in this product ever since it was introduced. And it’s no wonder. LATISSE is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller, and darker. LATISSE is available at Papillon Medical Aesthetics, your Okotoks eyelash growth clinic.

The LATISSE difference

LATISSE solution is an actual growth treatment. In fact, it’s the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And it’s the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.

Below are answers to some of the most common patient questions about LATISSE®



How to use LATISSE

LATISSE solution is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by one of our health care professionals. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s your own eyelashes – only better.

How LATISSE works

LATISSE makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.

What is the history behind LATISSE

Although LATISSE is a treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with expertise in eye care products.
