Tips for Success

Once you know how to apply LATISSE®, it's important to understand a few simple tips to help you make your treatment as effective as possible.

Follow these guidelines for best results:

Think routine
Try to incorporate LATISSE® into your nightly routine — for example, after you've washed your face and brushed your teeth.

Keep it handy
Store the LATISSE® bottle near your other skin care products or toothbrush, so you won't forget to apply it each night.

Have patience
LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% takes time to work. Only use it once a night, and don't overuse it, as this may increase the chance of experiencing eye redness or itchiness.

Start fresh
If your eye makeup remover leaves an oily residue on your eyelids, wash off any excess oils with soap and water to ensure a clean surface before you apply LATISSE®.

Follow the rules
Always use the sterile, disposable, FDA-approved applicator provided in the kit. Don't try to apply LATISSE® with a cotton swab. The LATISSE® applicator is specially designed to hold a drop and release a drop.

Don't play catch up
If you miss a dose one night, don't apply more just to catch up. Simply apply LATISSE® the next evening and stay on schedule.

Beware of germs
Don't let the tip of the bottle or applicator contact your fingers or any other unintended surface, in order to avoid contamination by common bacteria known to cause infections.

Chart your progress
When you start using LATISSE® solution, be sure to mark your calendar and take pictures throughout weeks (0, 4, 8, 12, 16), so you can have your own "Before & After Gallery."

Stay the course
As we mentioned earlier, you do need to exercise patience with LATISSE®. If you're satisfied with your results by week 8, stick with the treatment. You'll see the full effect of LATISSE® come into view at week 16. After that, you should talk to your doctor about ongoing use.
