|Eyelash Growth Treatment
If you are suffering with sparse and thinning eyelashes, then Eyelash Growth treatment using a medicine called Latisse can help.
WHAT IS LATISSE?
As we age, eyelashes can become more sparse and start to thin out. People who suffer with a condition called hypotrichosis (having inadequate lash thickness and length) can also see improvement when using Latisse.
Latisse is a medicine containing Bimatoprost 0.03%, which is an ophthalmic medicine that is used to reduce intraocular eye pressure (IOP) in those who suffer with glaucoma or very high blood pressure. As with many medicines, a side effect was noticed among patients using Bimatoprost eyedrops, in that they remarked that their eyelashes were increasing in length and thickness! This led Allergan, the makers of Botox, to develop Latisse as a medicine specifically for eyelash enhancement.
There are other eyelash enhancement solutions available for purchase, but Latisse is the only FDA approved, prescription medicine for eyelash growth. Having FDA approval means its safety and efficacy has been rigorously tested.
Specifically, patients treated with LATISSE in the clinical study experienced a:
25% increase in lash length|
106% increase in lash thickness/fullness
18% increase in lash darkness
Latisse is designed to be a home application product to enhance and beautify your eyelashes. There are some side effects, which include irritation and very rarely, a change in the pigmentation or colour of your iris (the coloured part of your eye). Our prescribing nurse, Mary White, will discuss whether you are suitable for Latisse at consultation.
