This article is just to give some review on how to make your eyelashes thicker with the help of bimatoprost. Bimatoprost is popularly known as Latisse (for cosmetic pupose) and Lumigan (for medicinal Purpose). Both Latisse and Lumigan contain bimatoprost as an active agent. It has helped many to gain back their lost eyelashes. This medication is being used for treating progression of glaucoma and in the management of ocular hypertension. Studies conducted have also shown that once-daily bimatoprost 0.03% ophthalmic solution is more effective in reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP). It is used in the treatment of hypotrichosis in the field of cosmetic.
Hypotrichosis is a disorder of not having an adequate amount of hair. In other word hypotrichosis refers to less than normal amount of hair present on the head or body. This happens due to a number of causes, including hereditary hair follicle dysplasia, infection of the hair follicles, neoplastic destruction, and irradiation. It is also called Alopecia and can be cured effectively by Bimatoprost.
It has been anecdotally noted that many people have grown long and lush eyelashes by applying bimatoprost. On December 5, 2008, the FDA Dermatologic and Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committee voted to approve bimatoprost for the cosmetic use of darkening and lengthening eyelashes. Patient leaflet is available along with this solution. It should be applied once daily to the upper eyelid with clean hand during bed time.
It works by increasing the length of eyelash and the number of hairs in the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle. Before applying it, you will need to remove your makeup if any and wash your hands and face thoroughly. Remove contact lenses before applying this solution. You may reinsert contact lenses 15 minutes after following application. Do not touch the tip of the applicator to your eye, your finger or any other surface to avoid contamination.
You will need to place one drop of bimatoprost solution carefully closer to the tip of the applicator. Do not put it directly on the tip. Immediately apply thin layer of solution carefully just like you apply liquid eyeliner on the margin of upper eyelid, at the base of the eyelashes. Make sure that entire base margin is covered with thin line of solution. Discard the applicator after applying to one eyelid. Blot the excess solution with a tissue if it spreads beyond the upper eyelid margin or if it drops on other skin area as the hair growth can take place in that area. Do not rinse your eye if the solution gets into the eye as it is not likely to cause any harm.
Use only sterile applicator that comes with it. Do not reuse the applicator. Dispose the applicator after one use. Use a new applicator and repeat the same step for other eyelid. Do not use any other brush or other applicators to apply. Do not apply Bimatoprost solution to the lower eyelid or to the scratchy or wounded skin of your upper eyelid.
