How Long After Having Permanent Eyeliner Can You Use Latisse?

Doctor Answers (2)

Permanent eyeliner can be followed by Latisse but why?

+1

If you had permanent eyeliner in the past, then Latisse can be used without any problem. The question of when after permanent eyeliner can you begin Latisse suggests that one might want to do both. Since Latisse is so successful at making eyelashes thicker, longer, and darker -- and since Latisse also sometimes makes the base of the lases darker by hyperpigmenting the skin, it seems not necessary to also do permanent eyeliner.

So my suggestion is to try Latisse alone by itself, and if you are not happy with the appearance, then consider permanent eyeliner later.

From a medical perspective, you could start Latisse about one week after the permanent eyeliner has been completed.

Permanent eyeline and Latisse

There is no reason why you could not start the Latisse within a week after the permanent eyeliner as all edema and minor trauma from the eyeliner should have resolved.  If you have any residual swelling or redness from the eyeliner then hold off just a little longer until this is resolved.
