Latisse Legitimacy

Julie Says:

At first I didn't think Latisse worked at all and I was wasting my money. I later realized that I was getting ripped off by imitation Latisse. Apparently the real Latisse has a patented ingredient called "bimatoprost" which comes from Allergan. After about 10 weeks my lashes and eyebrows were where I wanted them to be. The imitation wasn't cutting it. Moral of the story; make sure it's the real deal.

Hi Julie,

Thanks for sharing your feedback on Latisse. I wonder, where did you get it from the first time when you felt like it wasn't working correctly? Was it from a legitimate prescription? I only ask because I do see a lot of posts on here relating to people ordering medications from overseas, just to avoid a doctor visit...but often times their medication ends up being a lot weaker or something completely different. I don't know what your case may be, but I can also confirm that the real Latisse does reportedly contain the active ingredient Bimatoprost.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Latisse Details

I hope this helps! Have you thought about getting the fake one lab tested?

it's not unusual for patients to have hair loss with higher concentrations. Sometimes Lumigan will work better and it's a little less potent. It's all the same active ingredient. There's roughly 8 versions of glaucoma meds that are the EXACT same thing as latisse. Your dr. Might prescribe them bc they're a LOT cheaper. I took zyban to quit smoking which my insurance didn't cover & was insanely pricey. luckily Wellbutrin (antidepressant) is zyban under a diff generic name & is covered! Same situation. latisse was discovered bc of its side effects for glaucoma users.
