Until recently, there was no treatment for people who suffered from thin or irregular eyelashes (hypotrichosis). Thankfully, those days are over. LATISSE is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that helps your lashes grow longer, thicker, and darker.
The active ingredient, bimatoprost, was first used in 2001 by Allergan in a medicated eyedrop. This eyedrop, developed for glaucoma patients, relieved pressure in the eye caused by a buildup of fluid. After a few weeks, patients began to notice longer, thicker eyelashes. After a clinical trial, LATISSE was approved by the FDA for the treatment of hypotrichosis in December of 2008.
We drive from Logan to see Dr. Parsons and would have it no other way. The staff & Dr. Parsons were able to fit us in earlier so my husband could make it back to Logan for a Marine Corp meeting. We appreciate, so much, when appointments can be changed just enough to make other commitments. Dr. Parsons is always thorough, friendly, caring and an excellent doctor and surgeon!! I love him and have been his patient many years and, hopefully, will be for many more. ThanX to all the staff & Dr. Parsons!
