A study has demonstrated that Latisse will grow eyelashes lost to chemotherapy quicker than using a placebo.
The paper was published by Dr Glaser after monitoring 130 patients that had finished chemotherapy and lost their eyelashes.
96 of these patients used Latisse daily for 1 year and 34 used a placebo of sterile water for 6 months before switching to Latisse for the subsequent 6 months.
After 4 months their eyelashes were longer as assessed by doctors when compared to the placebo. After 1 year 90% of patients had significantly longer eyelashes compared to the 16 week mark.
Samples of the eyelashes were measured after chemotherapy and after 1 year. The hairs were 180% thicker, 28.5% longer and 14.4% darker.
