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.
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.
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.
