Lumigan is the brand name for an ophthalmic solution of 0.03% bimatoprost. It is manufactured by Allergan and is used as an eye drop for the treatment of glaucoma.
It has been used successfully in the treatment of ocular hypertension and has benefited millions of individuals world wide.
It was noted that individuals using Lumigan eye drops for the treatment of glaucoma were growing large, thick eyelashes as a side effect.
Can I use Lumigan for eyelash growth in the UK?
Lumigan may be prescribed to individuals in the UK as an off label prescription for the indication of hypotrichosis.
How does it actually grow your eyelashes?
Lumigan (known in America as Latisse when used for eyelash growth) comes in a small bottle, the same as any eye drop bottle. A tiny brush is used to apply the liquid to the base of your eyelashes, much like a liquid eyeliner being applied. This liquid is taken into the follicle of the hair and increases the hair growth cycle rate. This boosts the growth of the hair and the eyelash becomes longer, thicker and darker.
What results should I expect?
FDA in America found that the average results for eyelash growth were:
⇒ 25% longer
⇒ 106% thicker
⇒ 18% darker
How soon do I see results from Mylash?
The first results become obviously noticeable within 4 weeks but the best results take a 16 weeks to come through. This is because 16 weeks are required for the hairs to complete their hair growth cycle.
How much does Mylash cost?
Mylash costs £105 and includes the prescription, treatment and delivery. The majority of our clients find that this will last about 3-4 months and this is enough to grow your eyelashes longer, thicker and darker.
“Women looking for longer, fuller, darker eyelashes are no longer opting for false lashes or extensions, but are turning to this service which could spell the end of these – and standard mascara, too.”
“After five months of chemotherapy to blitz my ovarian cancer I had no body hair left as chemo kills the cells that produce hair follicles. I painted the treatment on like eyeliner every night and after six weeks my eyelashes were 25 percent longer. Within three months they were thicker and felt fabulously full. The result looked natural, only better. Without being able to pinpoint exactly what’s changed about me, friends tell me I’ve got the twinkle back in my eye. And when I see my new eyelashes in the mirror, I finally look like me again.”
“While you wait it out, you can help along your hairs using a treatment that promotes hair growth.”
“Like any girl, I want my lashes to be longer and thicker. I’ve tried lash-boosters, and they do make a difference, but I want more. So I’m turning to the hard stuff and road-testing a lash growing treatment that’s just become available in the UK. Only available on prescription, its offered from the Mylash service. One bottle lasted me three months and you’ll see a difference in four weeks (with best results in 16). I’m only three weeks in but I’m already noticing they’re thicker and, having seen the lashes of someone who’s been using it for 6 months (a-MAZING), I’m applying it religiously!”
The promise: Twenty five per cent longer, 106 per cent thicker and 18 per cent darker lashes in three months. The lowdown: Mylash uses a prescription only formula that was originally used in the treatment of glaucoma. It’s already a cult treatment in the US. After a consultation, I apply a thin layer daily along my lash line until the lashes reach my desired length (it takes three months). The results: Beyond what I hoped for – my lashes are longer, darker and thicker.
