Bimatoprost Lower Intraocular Pressure and Increases Eyelash Growth


Bimatoprost Lower Intraocular Pressure and Increases Eyelash Growth

Bimatoprost opthamolic solution has been known for being effectual at lowering intraocular pressure in adult patients. A new benefit of Bimatoprost has stolen the pharmaceutical headlines, however, with the advent of Latisse, for treating hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Touted by long time movie star and model Brooke Shields, Latisse is recommended for people who wish to increase their growth, length, darkness and thickness of their eyelashes. This 0.03% solution of Allergan’s Bimatoprost has proven in a plethora of studies to be effective and safe for patients who use this therapy for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes, as well as elevated intraocular pressure.

Patients who are utilizing Bimatoprost for increased eyelash growth utilize this therapy by applying one full sterile applicator of this solution to the skin of their upper eyelid, specifically at the base of the eyelashes. As a viable prostaglandin analog Latisse (Bimatoprost 0.03% opthamolic solution) has not caused serious adverse side effects. A minority of patients have complained of a darkened brown area of their iris developing, particularly for people who have hazel eyes. The upside of this product is the ability for patients to access it via medical spas and coordinate their treatments alongside other beauty regimens, such as Botox. Success is an understatement when referring to Bimatoprost as an eyelash enhancer product. Last year 74 million dollars of Latisse was sold, and figures are expected to double in 2015. Net sales overall are projected by pharmaceutical analysts to ultimately exceed 500 million dollars annually if patients end up being able to access this treatment without a prescription.

Bimatoprost is also known as the brand name eye drop Lumigan, which is also marketed by Allergan for decreasing intraocular eye pressure in patients at risk of getting glaucoma.
