Will Latisse Work on Tattooed Eyebrows?

Can Latisse/Bimatoprost/Travaprost work on sparse eyebrows from over-plucking? Will it work if you have eyebrow tattooed on? Mine are a light brown tattoo to fill in sparse eyebrows.

Latisse Might Work on Tattooed Eyebrows

Latisse has been FDA approved for the Upper Eyelashes only. I have not known anyone with the Permenant Makeup to use latisse on their brows, but I have known women to use them on their regular brows and yes it has worked. As long as there is an active hair follicle latisse will work. Results will vary from client to client. We cannot guarantee the results.

Latisse and Brows

Latisse has been used by several of my patients and they are growing back overplucked brows.  It shpould not be a problem with permanent tatoo makeup.  It will only work if the hair folloicles are still there.

Latisse will work when tattooing is present

Latisse will work on your eyebrows if you have hair follicles there. If you have fewer hair follicles because some have been damaged, the results will be limited. Latisse will turn the resting follicles into actively growing follicles, so more eyebrow hairs are growing at one time. The hairs will grow longer, thicker and darker. Tattooing will not prevent it from working.
