Does Lumigan Work to Grow Eyelashes?





Last year I blogged about a new FDA approval for Lumigan (Bimatoprost) ophthalmic solution for glaucoma to be used as a safe way to grow eyelashes. I thought the readers of EverythingHealth would enjoy seeing if it really worked.

You be the judge..the before photo shows eyelashes (with mascara, of course) before using Lumigan. The 2nd photo shows eyelashes after 6 weeks of use. The manufacturer states it takes 8 weeks for full benefit.

I remember your previous post on this, thanks for the follow up evidence.

Is it just for eight weeks and that is it or is it on going daily?
Looks good, like she got fake eye lashes.

It would be great for people that lost their's from chemo. If it still works after chemo. drugs.

I prescribe it and it works great. My wife uses it, my friends use it and my patients use it.

That is quite amazing. I wonder if they will just grow and grow? The photos really show the difference.

This sounds great for us people that have little eyelashes, I would like to know if people without glaucoma can use it ?

Anon 11:09: Yes, it is marketed now for eyelash growth and you do not need to have glaucoma. You do need a doctors prescription.

Please be careful - the strength that has been approved for cosmetic use is far less than the one approved for use in glaucoma. Lumigan (and the other drugs in the same class) have side effects such as hyperaemia (red eye), iris colour change, and darkening of the skin around the eye (i.e. you will look like a racoon). It's really not a good idea to get lumigan prescribed just for longer lashes - however, if you still want it then go for travatan or xalatan instead, as they have the same action but fewer side effects.

I'd like to see if that really works because I'm a bit skeptic about it, by the way I saw the eyes of that woman and she seemed she smoked marijuana or something like that.m10m

Latisse is just like Lumigan but you do NOT dispense it into the eye. You brush a drop of it onto the eyelid right at the lash line. Any amount you get into your eye is soooooo tiny. It really does work.

It does NOT turn blue eyes brown. Read the studies. When studied as Lumigan (which is dispensed INTO the eye) there were over 8000 people in the study. Of those 8000, nine individuals reported that the BROWN flecks in their eyes got darker. There are ZERO reports of Latisse having that effect. And ZERO reports of blue pigment turning brown.

It can't actually work, I believe so.

coming from a person who has glaucoma and takes lumigan daily.. find a better solution... While yes.. it does make my lashes ridiculously full... it can be very harsh on the eyes at times. And keep in mind that eye lash growth is a side effect for all of the drugs stated above(except latisse, ive been prescribed all of the others before) the actual use for the drig is to lower eye pressure... and yes, they all do that very well too. I woukd definitely talk to a optomotrist/opthamalogist before using this.
