Have you noticed your eyelashes getting thinner, shorter and lighter? Are your eyebrows thinning out as well? This condition is called hypotrichosis and can be caused by aging. From the ages of 18 to 59, the changes to your lashes become more and more pronounced. The good news is that LATISSE®, a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, can help reverse this process and bring back fuller, thicker, darker lashes.
LATISSE® has an interesting story of how it was discovered for cosmetic use. Allergan manufactures ophthalmic solutions, one of which is bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%. It is FDA approved for use directly on an eye to treat glaucoma. Patients being treated for this condition were noticing their eyelashes growing longer, and patients being treated for glaucoma in one eye noticed their lashes on the treated eye growing longer and fuller than their lashes on the non-treated eye. LATISSE® was FDA approved in 2008 to be used as a topical application to the upper eyelid to stimulate eyelash growth.
Though it may take up to 16 weeks of use to achieve the eyelash growth desired, most of our aesthetic patients see results much faster. Many patients have noticed that once they achieve the lash growth they desire, they can maintain the results by applying a smaller amount of LATISSE® less often. If LATISSE® is stopped for a period of time, the eyelashes will revert to the shorter growth cycle and go back to their original appearance. Continued use of LATISSE® will maintain longer, darker, thicker lashes.
