LATISSE in OKC at BodyTrends
Wouldn’t it be Great if you never had to apply Mascara again? Do you get tired of applying false eyelashes? The Sunday morning or late-night trip to the grocery store would be without self-consciousness, like it does for many women with thin eyelashes. You can find women who are conscious of this problem everytime you go to the grocery store or gas station in
Women who have the problem of thin, sparse eyelashes known as hypotrichosis may have already tried a number of eyelash growth products, like LiLash, Jan Marini, Marini Lash, Revitalash, Enormous Lash, Talika, Mavala, and Rozge. None of these products or cosmeceuticals has been demonstrated to be effective in clinical FDA trials. Latisse is the first and only FDA approved medication and eyelash growth product to make eyelashes grow, and may be your solution to this problem. In OKC Latisse is now at BodyTrends.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is the trade name for Bimatoprast, a synthetic compound in the prostaglandin family, which, under the trade name Lumigan, is also used as an eye drop to control the progression of glaucoma. It was noted incidently but fortuitously, that glaucoma patients using the eye drops were seen to grow long, thick and dark eyelashes. On the basis of these finding, clinical trials investigating the use of bimatoprost as a cosmetic drug began. In December 2008, the FDA approved bimatoprost for the cosmetic use of darkening and lengthening eyelashes. Single drops of Latisse are applied nightly, just before bedtime, to the clean surface of the upper eye-lid using a sterile applicator. Eyelash lengthening, thickening and darkening are seen within 45-day period.
How Latisse Works?
The precise mechanism of action for Latisse has not yet been elucidated, however the current research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percentage of hairs in the part of the hair-follicle growth-phase known as the anagen phase. It is also believed that Latisse increase the duration of the anagen growth phase. Studies in the clinical trial showed that by 16 weeks 78% of study participants showed significant increase in all three measurements: Length (25% longer), Fullness (106% thicker) and Darkness (18% darker).
As with any medication, there is a possibility that Latisse may have side-effects, which although rare have been reported.. Latisse may cause skin irritation, redness or itching at the site of application. It may also darken the skin at the point of application, it may also cause slight darkening of the i
ris in users with light-colored hazel eyes.
