So you want longer lashes and you’re considering Latisse, but you’re concerned about the side effects. Then you’re welcome to join the club of concerned others in want of luxurious lashes.
Word on the street says that Latisse will turn your irises brown… or is it your eyelids? We’ve heard both.
Our Elan Experts will be the first to tell you that iris pigmentation was not reported in clinical studies with Latisse.
There have been no reported cases of iris darkening related to Latisse at this time. However, Latisse is a derivative of the drug Lumigan which is used directly in the eye for glaucoma patients. Even with the studies regarding pigmentation risk with that drug, it was less than 1 percent.
So, is Latisse for you? Only if you want lashes so long that you might have to trim them on occasion.
“Latisse is very effective in growing thicker longer lashes,” according to Elan Experts. “Some of us have even had to trim our lashes after a month or so.”
Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for inadequate lashes, growing them fuller, longer and darker. If you’re looking to cure hypotrichosis (inadequate eyelashes) then we encourage you to consider the benefits of Latisse without worry and get ready to bat your lashes with a vengence.
