A medical breakthrough that women may be interested in, the FDA has approved the first drug to promote eyelash growth.
The product is called "Latisse" and is made by Allergan. It contains the active ingredient in a glaucoma drug, but is used differently. Like an eyeliner, Latisse gets dabbed along the lash line on the upper eyelids. The company says that longer, thicker and darker lashes can result within four months of use.
Allergan says Latisse may cause a darkening of the eyelid skin and an increased brown pigmentation in the eye.
