Latisse or Generic Brand

There are no generic brands of Latisse. Latisse is the only solution that has been scientifically proven to stimulate the growth of eyelashes and is available only by prescription. Many studies have been done to prove its effectiveness using unbiased observers. At present, Latisse is the only FDA approved treatment for growing eyelashes.

Generic Latisse

Dear jackbump

I am not sure what medication is FDA approved for eyelash growth that is generic, therefore, cannot comment on its effects. There are many over the counter products which claim to increase length of lashes but their efficacy has not been clearly established in FDA clinical trials.
