From hair extensions to eyelash enhancement, our resident expert on hair loss in women is on the case. Dr. Eric Schweiger was featured in a segment on Good Morning America where he discussed the enhancement of eyelashes, which he called, “a universal sign of beauty.”
According to Dr. Schweiger, eyelash enhancement is growing in popularity. One way to enhance your lashes is through topical hair loss medication called Latisse. Here is what Dr. Schweiger said on the topic:
“Latisse is a medicine you apply to the eyelash skin, and it actually increases the growth phase of the eyelashes,” Schweiger said, referring to the prescription treatment that is the first and only FDA-approved eyelash growth product. “You get longer, fuller eyelashes.”
In recent years, Latisse has attracted media attention for its eyelash growing properties. Testing has begun for use as an eyebrow enhancer and begun testing for hair loss on the scalp.
