Is Latisse Eyelash Treatment Safe During Pregnancy?

It is only natural that many women look to cosmetic treatments and procedures during pregnancy given that pregnancy is a time when women do not typically feel their best. They may feel extra tired or fatigued and are in need of something to rejuvenate them.

Some women may even express dissatisfaction with growing changes in their body and look to cosmetic treatments to help them feel better. Although pregnancy should be celebrated, wanting to feel comfortable and look your best during this time is a natural response. However, many treatments and procedures may not always be safe during pregnancy.

Latisse is an eyelash treatment to create longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. Latisse is the brand name for the medication, bimatoprost, which is used to treat unsatisfactory eyelashes or hypotrichosis. It is regularly applied to the eyelashes on the upper lid and over time (a period of 8 to 12 weeks), eyelashes are longer, thicker and darker. It is approved by the FDA and is the one approved eyelash treatment on the market.

Most, if not all doctors, will say that Latisse eyelash treatment is not safe during pregnancy. It is recommended that you discontinue its use during this time. The reason for this is because it has been assigned a category ‘C’ rating during pregnancy by the Food and Drug Administration, which means that while it hasn’t been studied on humans, it has caused serious reactions in animals.

In addition, the fact that there are no controlled studies on how this affects pregnant women is further evidence that it should be avoided. The manufacturer of Latisse also asks mothers to use it with caution during breastfeeding as the product can potentially make its way into a mother’s breast milk.

You may have seen advertising for an eyelash grower called Latisse, but may be unaware of what it does and how it works. Sometimes drugs have useful side effects, which is what researchers found when using Latisse. Lumigan, a medicine in eye drop form, was used for glaucoma patients and users noticed that while using, their eyelashes grew longer and thicker.

As an FDA-approved medication since 2008, Latisse has been used by celebrities and other women looking to lengthen their short eyelashes.

How Does Latisse Work?

In a normal cycle, eyelashes sprout, grow and then fall out. Latisse extends the growth period and makes the lashes darker and thicker. Latisse comes with sterile applicators that are used to apply the medication on the upper lashes. When you blink, Latisse spreads to the lower lashes.

Before using this medication, be sure to wash your face, remove makeup and sure there are no contact lenses in your eyes. In addition, never get the medication in your eyes. It should be applied carefully or else it can trigger hair growth in unwanted areas.

Latisse should be applied every night. It is important to use a new applicator each time. If you reuse them, you run the risk of contracting an allergic reaction or eye infection. The results should be visible after two months of regular use, with the medication taking full effect by week 16. At that point, your doctor may recommend using Latisse every other day.

Side Effects

As with any medication, side effects can occur. The most common side effects include itching and redness, with occurred in 4 percent of users. Darkened eyelids, irritation, dry eyes and red eyelids can also occur. These conditions go away after several weeks of discontinued use.
