Cult Lash Favourite Latisse®
The Latisse ® solution is the first and only formula approved by the US FDA and Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority to improve the appearance of eyelashes and will be available first at Calvin Chan Aesthetic & Laser Clinic on Orchard Road.
Endorsed by prominent Hollywood celebrities like Brooke Shields and Claire Danes, the Latisse ® solution is an ophthalmic prescription used to promote
longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. This product was developed after years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader in ophthalmic products. The Latisse® ophthalmic solution is a topical treatment applied once a day at the base of the upper lashes with a sterile, single-use-per-eye disposable applicator. The formula works in two ways to stimulate your eyelash growth; it increases the life of the eyelash and provides essential nutrients for growth. You may start to see results in as little as 2 to 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. To maintain the effects, continued treatment with Latisse ® is required. If use of Latisse ® is discontinued, eyelashes will gradually return to where they were prior to treatment over a period of weeks to months (average eyelash hair cycle).
Bimatoprost is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in the formulation of Latisse ® and is a structural prostaglandin analog, a lipid compound derived from fatty acids designed to bind to rostaglandin (PG) receptors. PG receptors are present in hair, particularly in the dermal papilla (which extends from the epidermis into the dermis and nourishes all hair follicles) and outer root sheath. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, PG receptors are thought to be involved in the development and regrowth of the hair
follicle, by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen or growth phase.
Latisse ® retails at SGD195 and is currently available at Calvin Chan Aesthetic & Laser Clinic.
