A chance discovery that an anti glaucoma eye drop could make the eyelashes stronger, thicker & longer, resulted in this drop being used to promote your own lashes’ natural growth. Chronic Blepharitis can cause loss of lashes as can ageing. Dr. Shah-Desai recommends use of topical Bimatoprost or human growth factors to encourage to encourage longer thicker eyelashes & brows.
Latisse® (Bimatoprost 0.03 % ophthalmic solution) more than doubles lash fullness in 16 weeks.
It has FDA approval in USA, but is still awaiting approval for use in UK/ EU.
Lumigan eye drops have the same formula as Latisse® & achieve the same result – but this is an off label use of the anti glaucoma drop.
AQ Lash – Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancement System
AQ Lash is uniquely designed to promote longer, thicker, darker eye lashes and brows through a patented GF Formula (U.S. Pat. 5,518, 879). It is a safe and natural serum formulated to restore the health and vitality of eyelashes and eyebrows by naturally encouraging hair matrix production. With regular daily use, Lash may help achieve fuller, longer, and more youthful-looking lashes and brows with less breakage and without the undesirable side effects commonly associated with other lash enhancing products.
The treatment will only be prescribed, if it is suitable, after a specialist ophthalmic consultation with Mrs. Shah-Desai.
You will be counseled of all possible side effects & will need medical supervision, for the off license use to stimulate eyelash growth and retention.
Latisse® may cause increased & permanent brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye. Eyelid skin darkening may occur and may be reversible and hair may grow on skin that LATISSE® frequently touches. Other common side effects include itchy and red eyes.
If discontinued, lashes gradually return to previous appearance.

Apply once a day to clean, dry skin. Apply one droplet of AQ Lash onto clean unused applicator (supplied).

Do this for both eye and there is no need to add additional droplets after each stroke. Repeat sweep on upper and lower lash line to make sure product is saturated. Discard applicator after use.
