Latisse in Toronto

LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03%

The First Prescription for Eyelash Growth

Until now, in order to have longer and fuller eyelashes, women had to use an adhesive to affix synthetic lashes to their own, or use an eyelash permanent solution to curl the lashes. But now, Dr. Jugenburg is offering prescription Latisse, the first FDA approved solution for growing eyelashes.

Latisse lengthens, darkens and creates thicker eyelashes, and is manufactured by the same company that markets Botox.

Latisse is a solution that is dabbed along the lash-line on the upper eyelids once a day. The solution must be applied with the applicators that come with the solution.

Approved Use
LATISSE® is a prostaglandin analog, indicated to treat hypotrichosis of the eyelashes by increasing their growth including length, thickness and darkness.

Warning
Concurrent administration of LATISSE® and IOP-lowering prostaglandin analogs in ocular hypertensive patients may decrease the IOP-lowering effect. Patients using these products concomitantly should be closely monitored for changes to their intraocular pressure
Pigmentation of the eyelids and iris may occur. Iris pigmentation is likely to be permanent

Adverse Reactions

  • Most common adverse reactions (incidence approximately 3% – 4%) are eye pruritus, conjunctival hyperemia, and skin hyper pigmentation.
  • LATISSE® may cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent.
  • Eyelid skin darkening may occur and may be reversible. Only apply at the base of upper lashes. DO NOT APPLY to lower lid.
  • Hair may grow on skin that LATISSE® frequently touches.

If discontinued, lashes gradually return to previous appearance.

 

Important Safety Information
If you use/used prescription products for eye pressure problems, use LATISSE® under doctor care.

Dosage and Administration
Apply nightly directly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes using the accompanying applicators. Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin. Dispose of the applicator after one use. Repeat for the opposite eyelid margin using a new sterile applicator.
