Latisse is a topical solution manufactured by Allergan, formulated to enhance the growth of certain kinds of hair follicles; resulting in thicker, darker and longer eyelashes. It is a modern technology, introduced in the US in 2009 and later approved by Health Canada in 2010.
The medical ingredient in the solution is the only substance that has been proven to encourage the growth of thicker, fuller and darker lashes. The medical ingredients are said to work by altering the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, by increasing the length of this phase, and second, by increasing the number of hair in this growth phase. It is recommended for people who feel they have inadequate eyelashes and want to avoid artificial application.
