Lat⍳sse a prescription only medicinal product with FDA approval in the USA for the treatment of hypotrichosis (thin eyelashes). It has been in use since 2001 with millions of happy clients since then. In the UK, we have the same product available as Lum⍳gan (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03%). This was originally developed as a treatment for raised intraocular pressure/glaucoma, where enhanced eyelash growth was observed as a welcomed side-effect. The use of the same liquid is now recognised as a safe, off-label option for UK patients.
Trials over 13 years and over 5000 patients have shown that Lum⍳gan is safe and that 100% of patients treated will see an improvement in their eyelash quality.
Start by ensuring your face is clean with makeup and any contact lenses removed.
Apply Lum⍳gan once nightly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes only. Use the brushes provided for easy application. Do not apply to the eye itself.
Holding the applicator horizontally, place one drop of Lum⍳gan on the area of the applicator closest to the tip but not on the tip. Immediately draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes (where the eyelashes meet the skin) going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part. Blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin.
You will start to see results from 8 weeks. Maximum results are achieved after 16 weeks. A maintenance dose of every other night is recommended after 12 weeks.
The most common side effects are an itching sensation. Other less common side effects include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. Any eyelid skin darkening is expected to reverse after several weeks to months. Any darkening of the coloured part of the eye known as the iris is not expected to reverse and is likely permanent. In clinical trials of Lum⍳gan at this strength only 1 patient had very minor changes in iris pigmentation out of approx 2000 patients.
If the product is stopped the effect will start to tail off after 2 months. There will be no accelerated loss, just because the treatment was tried.
Yes. Strengthening and thickening up your natural lashes allows you to continue to have any type of lash extension for as long as you wish. Furthermore, the growth enhancer liquid is water-based, not oil based, so using it will not loosen extensions.
We will usually prescribe your treatment as single use pods for daily use
A 30 day course of Lum⍳gan costs £55. Most clients take the first 2 months supply, available at the reduced cost of £100 or £50 per month.
Many clients find that use of the drops is only needed on alternate days after the first couple of months. This can effectively reduce your lash investment down to just £25 per month.
