Usually, the only way to get rid of discolouration is to stop using Latisse. They will fade with time once you've stopped.

Discoloration of Eyelids from Latisse

Irritation of the skin where Latisse has been applied can sometimes lead to darkening of the skin. This can actually be a good thing if you use eyeliner. This effect is usually temporary and will fade over time, especially if the Latisse is discontinued. Fortunately, side effects from Latisse are quite uncommon. Over two million prescriptions for Latisse have now been filled with no confirmed reports of iris pigmentation issues. Less than 4 percent of people experienced redness, irritation and itching of the upper eyelid which was reversible upon discontinuation.

Often, the pigmentary changes do fade over time after discontinuing Latisse.  The first suggestion to stop using Latisse, and seek your eyeMD to monitor you.  Your eyes should also be examined for other potential side effects of Latisse.  This is one of the reasons that Latisse is a prescription medication.
