Latisse for Lower Lashes

   Latisse does tend to grow the lower lashes as well.  The upper eyelashes will transfer some of the product to the lower eyelashes.

Latisse Placement on Lower Lashes

Theoretically, you can put Latisse on the lower Lashes.  It is not FDA approved for this placement as it wasn't in the original protocol.  The Dr. was right, after you place it on the upper lids just the mere matter of blinking will distribute the product to the lower lids.

Latisse and the lower lashes

You absolutely can put it on the lower lashes, but just by blinking, you get enough of the liquid on there for the effects to occur. Thus, separately placing it onto the lower lashes is wasteful.

You can put Latisse on lower lashes

Actually, you can put Latisse on the lower eyelashes but it is usually not necessary as some of the Latisse that you put on the upper eyelashes will migrate to the lower lashes when you blink or close your eyes. If you don't see much improvement in the lower lashes after a few months you can try applying Latisse there as well. By the way, Latisse was also shown to be effective in the treatment of eyebrow hairs in the January, 2012 issue of the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology.

Latisse for lower eyelashes

Latisse can be placed on the lower eye lashes and even the eyebrow!!   Remember that the lower lid eyelashes should not be too long.  For this reason it is recommended that you use it on the uppers only just before going to bed.  That way some product will cross over to the lowers lashes when you close your eyes and stimulate some growth of the lower lashes. This way you will get some growth but not as much as the upper lashes.

You can put Latisse on lower lashes; you just don't need to

The studies for Latisse sought approval for the upper lashes. Nevertheless, every application to the upper lashes will, by blinking , transfer some to the lower lashes. It works there too. So no need to worry, and no need to use extra.
