We all love long, luscious eyelashes, but not all of us were born with an abundance. Age can further diminish lash volume, and many women resort to false eyelashes or layer upon layer of mascara. It’s a problem… and we have a solution!
Melissa Gibbens is a Brilliant Distinctions provider for Allergan (the maker of LATISSE®), which in 2001 developed a medicated eye drop used to treat elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). Doctors noticed an interesting side-effect… their patients grew longer, fuller and darker lashes! A clinical trial of the active ingredient bimatoprost confirmed the safety and efectiveness for lash growth, and LATISSE® was approved by the FDA in December of 2008. It is the first and ONLY FDA-approved product indicated to treat hypotrichosis of the eyelashes by increasing their growth, including length, thickness, and darkness.1
In as little as 21 days, LATISSE® helps lengthen and thicken your own natural lashes. The solution works gradually with full results in 16 weeks.
Once you begin, you have to commit! You’ll apply the topical solution each night, and for best results you must follow the directions. You (and your family, friends and coworkers) will notice more thickness and darkness over the course of the full treatment. If you stop using LATISSE® at any time, your eyelashes will gradually return to their pretreatment appearance.
Unretouched photos of an actual LATISSE® patient in the clinical trial at week 0 and week 16. In the clinical trial, 78% of LATISSE® patients (107/137) experienced ≥ 1-grade increase vs 18% for vehicle (26/141), and 33% (45/137) experienced ≥ 2-grade increase vs 1% for vehicle (2/141), on the 4-point Global Eyelash Assessment (GEA) scale* at week 16.2 Individual results may vary.
Patients should be informed of the possibility of disparity between eyes in length, thickness, pigmentation, number of eyelashes or vellus hairs, and/or direction of eyelash growth.
