EYELASH GROWTH TREATMENT
A prescription eye solution traditionally used to treat glaucoma, bimatoprost (marketed as Latisse® in the USA), is used to stimulate the growth of longer thicker eyelashes. For the purpose of eyelash growth, it needs to be applied to the base of the eyelashes of the upper eyelid nightly using an applicator which will be provided.
One bottle of 3ml should last about 3 months if applied correctly. Results are usually seen after 4 weeks of continued use, but for optimal results it is recommended that you use the product for 4 months at which time you can use it on alternate days.
Trials conducted on this product have shown that on average lashes are 25% longer, 106% thicker and 18% darker.
The main side effect that may occur is irritation of the eyelids. If the solution gets into the eye itself there is a possibility of permanent darkening of the iris. If any of the side effects ensue, you should discontinue its use. Bimatoprost for eyelash growth should not be used if you have an eye infection, breakage of the skin of the eyelid, sensitive/allergic eyelid skin or blepharitis.
