Question: How does Latisse work?
It is believed that Latisse works by affecting the growth of eyelash hairs by increasing the length as well as the number of hairs in the growth cycle. Eyelash growth is a known side effect of Lumigan
, a drug used in the treatment of glaucoma
. Latisse contains bimatoprost, the active ingredient in Lumigan. Lumigan and Latisse
are used differently, however. Lumigan drops are applied to the eyes, and Latisse is dabbed along the lash line on the upper eyelids.
