A glaucoma drug called Lumigan has been successfully used to treat open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension for years and is now on the verge of being put to an entirely different use. A beauty treatment.
People who have taken the glaucoma drug have discovered that one of the side-effects of Lumigan was that it caused their eyelashes to grow. However, nobody knew if it was safe to use this drug for the specific purpose of growing eyelashes. Now new studies have been successfully completed and when Lumigan is applied using a special applicator to the base of the eyelash, it is perfectly safe to use and very effective at growing your eyelashes.
Lumigan (as a beauty treatment) is expected to receive regulatory approval in both Canada and the U.S. later this year. A big win for thinning eyelashes everywhere, and for drug company Allergan maker of Lumigan.
