What woman alive doesn’t wish for thick, long, dark, luxurious eyelashes? Lashes frame the eye, accentuating color and clarity, and . . . after all . . . the eyes are the windows to the soul . . . and, those windows should be surrounded by beautiful frames.
Up until just a few years ago, there was really not much to be done if lashes thinned or lightened – something that eventually happens to everyone with age. However, even worse than getting older, are those poor souls who develop hypotrichosis – the technical term for thin, short lashes – earlier in their lives.
Products to cosmetically overcome this problem abound, from two-step lash building mascaras, to false eyelashes, to individual clumps of artificial lashes glued to the eyelid. All of these promise the illusion of darker, longer, thicker lashes, but, alas, all methods are temporary, and to maintain the illusion, must be re-applied daily.
History of Latisse:
Like so many great things, Latisse for eyelash growth was discovered quite accidentally, as a side-effect of a glaucoma medication: Bimatopros is a prostamide, marketed as Lumigan by Allergan in the US and Canada. It has been used by over eleven million patients world-wide since its inception. These once-daily eye drops are used to reduce the progression of glaucoma by increasing the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eyes, thereby reducing the intraocular pressure of the eye. It was approved by the FDA in 2001, and numerous research studies since that time have proven it to be a very effective drug for the treatment of glaucoma.
However, it didn’t take very long for patients using Bimatopros to reduce intraocular pressure to start reporting an increase in the thickness, and length of their eyelashes, as well as a darkening of lash color, after only a few months of using the drops.
