Moreover, does Latisse cause blue eyes to turn brown?
Approximately one percent of glaucoma patients using the drops in their eyes experienced a darkening of the pigment of the iris. That is where the “buzz” about Latisse turning blue eyes brown started. Theoretically yes, but in all the clinical trials for Latisse, no cases were ever reported.
Similarly, can Latisse cause dark circles under eyes? Yes, latisse can cause dark circles under your eyes. First, you should know that Latisse has active ingredients of bimatoprost. So it is used for skin care topical, dry eye, trichiasis. Of course, it also can lead to dark circles.
In this way, what is the ingredient in Latisse that changes eye color?
It seems Latisse contains the active ingredient bimatoprost, a type of chemical known as a prostaglandin, and it is known to cause changes to eye colour. Allergan admits it 'can cause increased brown colouring of the iris, which may be permanent'.
Does Latisse make your eyelids red?
Latisse may irritate the upper eyelids, causing them to temporarily take on a red color. Just like irritation and redness of the eyes, this side effect can occur shortly after you start using Latisse and continue for a few weeks. As with other side effects of Latisse, skin redness should improve over time.
