There are numerous factors that can affect lash growth whether or not a person is using LATISSE. In the two latest publications on, two such factors are discussed in detail. It is explained how age and lash extensions can affect a person’s natural eyelash growth, as well as the results they see while using LATISSE.

LATISSE and Eyelash Extensions

The first of the two publications discusses the similarities and differences of using LATISSE while wearing lash extensions, compared to doing so when lashes are bare. The article points out:

  •     Users shouldn’t use LATISSE within a few days of getting lash extensions.
  •     Users shouldn’t alter the suggested usage – no extra solution needs to be applied.
  •     Users with lash extensions may not see the results as readily as patients without extensions.
  •     Consistent coverage is key and may be hindered due to the lash extensions. does note that while results should be very similar to those experienced by users without lash extensions, it is recommended that the product be applied the to base of clean, bare lashes for the best results.

Aging and Eyelashes

A follow-up to the lash extension article explains how eyelash growth alters with age. Both the stages of growth and the anatomy of lashes are discussed so that readers fully understand how growth slows overtime. Factors that affect lash growth include:

  •     Slower cellular turnover
  •     Weakened follicles
  •     Damage over time

As pointed out in the article, LATISSE can help a patient regain the fullness of their eyelashes and even improve upon the overall lash appearance that a user had in their youth. While gradual thinning of eyelashes is normal, recommends that any sudden or prominent loss be accessed by a physician to rule out any underlying issues.
