Are Results Permanent After Discontinuing Use of Latisse?

Seems to me a lifetime of putting this stuff on is not worth having long lashes. When one stops using it, does lash growth go back to the way it was before the use of the product?

Do the Effects of Latisse Continue When You Stop Using It

The effect of Latisse has reached its full potential after approximately 12-16 weeks of using it. At that point you can decrease to a maintenance application of Latisse to the upper eyelid(at the eyelid/eyelash margin) about 2-3 times per week. If you stop Latisse altogether, your eyelashes will revert to their original thickness and length in approximately 16 weeks.

Latisse results are not permanent

Latisse results of fuller and longer lashes are fantastic. However, as long as you use the product, the continual results are seen. When you stop the applications, the lashes will return to their original condition after several months. Good luck,
