How to Take Care of Your Latisse Lashes

You got the medical prescription, ordered your first kit or two of Latisse lash growth serum, and spent four months carefully applying it to your lash line every day without fail. Now when you look in the mirror after using Latisse, your eyes are framed by the lush, long, dark lashes you’ve always dreamed of having.

Congratulations! It’s not easy to follow through on a long-term daily habit of Latisse, so give yourself a pat on the back. Now that you’ve put in months of effort to grow such gorgeous lashes from Latisse, make sure the treatment doesn’t go to waste. We’ve compiled some easy treatment tips for taking care of your butterfly-kissers so that you can enjoy your Latisse investment for years to come.

1. Make sure to maintain

You can cut back on Latisse applications now that you’re in your “maintenance phase”, but it’s still important to apply your Latisse prescription 3-4 times per week. It’s not a problem if you miss a day of your prescription occasionally, but if you stop using Latisse altogether, eventually your lashes will go back to what they used to be.

2. Clean lash at bedtime

Wearing mascara is more fun when your lashes are already striking, but make absolutely certain to (gently!) remove it all before you go to bed. Waterproof mascara in particular can dry out each lash and make them more brittle and prone to breakage.

3. Keep your eyelashes conditioned

Eyelashes are hair, and they need conditioning too! While there are many lash conditioners on the market, a simple solution is to use vitamin E oil. Use a dropper to put a couple of drops on a cotton swab, and run it over your lashes top and bottom (while being cautious of your eyelid). You can alternate conditioning days and Latisse maintenance days to keep up a daily lash care habit and make it easier to remember.

4. Careful with the curler!

Likewise, using an eyelash curler too often or with too much force can put stress on lashes and weaken them. Make sure to curl before applying mascara, not after, and squeeze with gentle, even pressure—there’s no need to put muscle into it. Warming the curler in your hand before using it can help give you a longer-lasting curl, but be wary of heated curlers. Just like curling irons and heated rollers can fry your hair over time, heated lash curlers rob your eyelashes of moisture.

5. Get some skin in the game

You’ve mastered the art of eyelashes, but don’t neglect the eye area. For stunning eyes that get all eyes on them, keep that delicate skin moisturized, firmed, and radiant. A power player like SkinMedica’s TNS Eye Repair or TNS Illuminating Eye Cream visibly improves skin tone and texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles, and enhances the brightness of your skin. What a great solution!

It’s very important to take your Latisse care at a great extent. With just a little bit of it for each lash, you’ll start every day with a wink and a smile.

  1. Thank you Skin Solutions!! I’ve been a customer going on 3 years now. The service is awesome and I love my Latisse. No doubt…I have long, lush lashes which I never had before. I don’t have to wear lash extensions that ruin lashes & spend lots of time and money, nor have to fiddle with eyelash strips. Latisse is worth it!Thank you! 🙂

    • We’re so glad to hear from you, Eliza! Thanks for being a great customer and for checking out our blog. Congratulations on your gorgeous Latisse lashes and we hope you keep enjoying them for many more years to come!

  2. I didn’t know a curler could weaken lashes. I guess you should be careful with that. Do eyelashes growback? I know some hair follicles do and some don’t.

    • Hi John, yes, eyelashes do grow back as long as there is a functioning follicle! And yes, eyelash curlers put some stress on the lash by bending them. Well-conditioned, healthy lashes can usually be curled without any issues, but if the lashes are dry, brittle, or aren’t clean of hardened mascara or primer before curling, it can weaken or damage them.

  3. I have been using Latisse for years. However, I don’t see lush or very long eyelashes. Just a tiny bit longer. I buy it from my dermatologist. What could be the problem?

    • Hi Meredith! Without having a doctor examine your lashes, it’s hard to say for sure. It could be genetic, or it could be how often you’re using it, or there could be some other factor.
