Can I use minoxidil 5% and latisse on my eyelashes?
Los Angeles, CA

I used to use latisse for 2 years and my eyelashes were perfect, very long and thick, but I stopped using it 5 months ago and they are very shorts and I've been using latisse for 2 weeks and no results, I'm desperate to have my lashes back so I wanna mix these products to grow faster, is it fine to do this?

I personally would not recommend using Minoxidil near your eyes. I would stick with the Latisse since that is proven in efficacy and safety. It takes about 8 weeks to start seeing results from Latisse and 16 weeks for full effects. Stick with what is safe.

Latisse takes 12-16 weeks to start to take effect, i often combine this with PRP topically or injected and get better results. Take viviscal as well. Best, Dr. Emer.
The combination of minoxidil and Latisse has not been studied. I don't advise use of minoxidil on the eyelids.
