Latisse Application Process

Like every routine, Latisse applications are about consistency and precision. To begin, make sure your face is clean, and you remove your makeup and contact lenses. Also, apply any other facial care products before applying Latisse.

Next, remove and open the sterile tray and remove an applicator. Hold it horizontally while applying one drop of Latisse near the tip but not directly on it. Then draw the applicator along the skin of the upper eyelid where the lash meets the skin. Use cotton or tissue to blot any excess product that runs beyond the eyelid. You can discard the applicator and repeat the process on your other lash.

Important Dos and Don'ts

  • Only use thesterile applicator to apply Latisse
  • Don’t apply to the lower lid
  • Blot excess product with cotton or a tissue
  • Don’t allow the product to touch your finger or any unintended surface
  • Remove contact lenses before application
  • Remember, when you stop using Latisse, your lashes will return to their normal fullness and length

Latisse FAQs

Latisse is backed by clinical research and approved by the FDA as an eyelash enhancement, making it the first and only prescription product for lash fullness and growth.

Latisse has a low occurrence of possible side effects that are extremely rare. These include eye redness or itchy eyes. Only 4% of patients participating in a Latisse clinical study reported any adverse effects, including:

  • Skin hyperpigmentation—skin darkens because of an increase in the brown skin pigment known as melanin.
  • Eye irritation or dryness
  • Eyelid redness
  • Elevated IOP (intraocular pressure)—occurring when pressure on the inside of the eye is higher than usual. This side effect may decrease as you use Latisse. If you currently take IOP-lowering medication, let Dr. Peterson know.

No call for concern as Latisse is an ophthalmic solution. This formulation is made specifically for the eyes and the sensitive area around them.  If Latisse gets in your eyes, it’s perfectly safe and will cause no damage to the eye.

Relax and wait. You may experience this issue after application, but only for a short time until your eyes become used to the solution. Any side effect does not necessarily mean you are allergic to the drug. If you experience multiple side effects, or any effect lasts longer than a couple of weeks, stop using Latisse, and call us.

Anyone who learns they are allergic to the solution.

Because it’s not necessary.  When you apply Latisse to your upper eyelashes, it will find its way to the lower, as well. When you sleep, your eyelids come together and will transfer the product from upper to lower lash. Also, it’s best to use Latisse only as prescribed to avoid any of the aforementioned side effects.
