Life is short--Your lashes shouldn't be!!
It is normal to lose some lashes every day. Some of us were born with thicker or longer lashes. Even these lucky folk tend to lose lashes as they get older. Pulling at your lashes, stress, lash extensions, sleeping in mascara, excessive eye rubbing, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disease, chemotherapy can lead to increased lost lashes. Whatever the cause, there are products that can help!
Looking for longer lashes without having to maintain lash extensions?
LATISSE® (bimatoprost) is a medication that was approved for use in 2008 for Eyelash hypotrichosis (loss of eyelashes). It is thought to cause an increase in the hair growth phase.
It was discovered when glaucoma patients using eyedrops containing this medication were noted to develop longer, thicker lashes. Allergan conducted clinical studies that showed at the end of the 16-week treatment period that LATISSE® resulted in a:
- 25% increase in lash length
- 106% increase in lash thickness/fullness
- 18% increase in lash darkness
Potential Side Effects:
- Eyelid itching or irritation
- Eyelid darkening
- Eye color change
- Increased brown iris pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely to be permanent
