Review of instructions
Latisse is applied once a day, with the most benefit being seen after 12-16 weeks. If you apply Latisse regularly, such as a part of your before bed ritual, you may begin to see results in as little as four to eight weeks.
Latisse comes packaged in a dropper bottle with a supply of sterile applicators. A drop of the solution is placed near the tip of an applicator and drawn across the base of the eyelashes of the top lid, from the inner corner of the eye to the outer, much like eyeliner. Excess solution may be blotted away with a tissue.
It is recommended that you remove contacts before applying the Latisse solution. You should also use a new sterile applicator for each eye, each day. Also, be sure not to touch the tip of the bottle or allow it to touch other surfaces or the bottle may become contaminated by bacteria that can cause infections.
