Does Latanprost work the same as Latisee?
Latisse is specifically indicated for treatment of lack of eyelash growth.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% as a novel treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
Latisse is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. Latisse users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks. To maintain effect, continued treatment with Latisse is required. If use of Latisse is discontinued, eyelashes will gradually return to where they were prior to treatment over a period of weeks to months (average eyelash hair cycle).
Latanoprost however is used to treat certain types of glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye. It reduces pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye.
Eyelash growth is a side effect of latanoprost.
