Longer, thicker and darker lashes can be yours with the help of Latisse ™, the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, or inadequate eyelashes.
Available at ClearView Eye and Laser Medical Center, this eyelash treatment was researched and developed by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader in prescription eye care products. A glaucoma specialist, Dr. Murray Johnstone, found that glaucoma medications had an unusual side effect; patient's eyelashes were growing, darkening and thickening. Allergan then developed Latisse™.
The development of Latisse™ was much like BOTOX®, which was first approved by the FDA as a medical treatment for eye disorders. The side effect of the treatment was an aesthetic benefit for wrinkles. Allergan saw a way to meet a need in the medical aesthetic marketplace and, like BOTOX®, further developed Latisse™ for the general public.
Latisse™ is effective and easy to use. The solution is applied topically to the base of the upper eyelid once a day. The active ingredient bimatoprost increases the number of eyelash hairs in the growth phase and extends its duration for optimal length and fullness. Latisse™ is clinically proven to produce beautiful eyelashes and absolutely remarkable results in four to sixteen weeks!
