Eyelash treatment steps up to bat(t)

At long last, the long awaited miracle drug for thicker, longer eyelashes has received FDA approval. The new miracle drug will be marketed as Latisse.

Allergan developed the drug to use in treating glaucoma, but one of its side effects was longer, fuller eyelashes. The glaucoma drug is Lumigan, which is technically called bimatoprost.

The turf battles will soon be coming. Allergan hopes to begin marketing its new Latisse some time in February.

The cost will be $120 for a 30-day supply for both eyes. The liquid is applied daily to the base of the upper eyelashes. The results can become apparent in as little as eight weeks and should show complete results by 16 weeks.

Eyelashes will gradually return to their prior appearance if treatment is not maintained.

Just something new to add to your cosmetics bag.

I currently use the Talika product on my lashe and brows. I wonder: is minoxidil okay to use on the brows? My lashes are average but my brows are sparse.
