I am in my second trimester and wondering, is it safe to use Latisse as directed, on my eyelashes?
Would not Advise
We physicians seem to get this sort of question a lot on Real Self.
I, and I vouchsafe, all physicians are very cautious during pregnancy. We always look at the risk/benefit ratio when determining whether a drug should be used during pregnancy. Since the benefit is purely cosmetic, the risk easily outweighs any benefit. Thus, I would wait until you have delivered your baby. Then you can use Latisse, providing you will not be nursing.
Latisse and Pregnancy
Latisse has NOT been tested on pregnant women and therefore should not be used until you ask your OB/GYN and receive the okay from your doctor. Always better to be cautious and talk to your doctor first.
