Bimatoprost or Lumigan (also known as "latisse") belongs to the prostaglandin analogues and is used as a drug for the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure. The application takes place once a day. For some time, the drug has also been used in the US for better eyelash growth.
It is possible in United States to buy cheap Latisse online legally without a prescription from the family doctor. This is made possible by the issue of an online prescription at the online pharmacy.
An online prescription for Bimatoprost drops can be issued after completing an online questionnaire. The prescription is then immediately forwarded to a mail-order pharmacy, from which the bimatoprost eye drops are then dispensed i.d.R. is sent to the customer within one day.
This is duty-free and legal because the online pharmacy relies on the EU Patient Mobility Directive, which allows patients to buy their medicines in other EU countries where online diagnosis is legal.
For patients with elevated intraocular pressure, the drug is available as eye drops under the trade name Lumigan® and in combination with timolol as Ganfort®. The drug lowers intraocular pressure through improved drainage of aqueous humor. The application takes place once a day in the evening. More frequent use would weaken the effect. Side effects may include conjunctival hyperemia and itchy eyes.
In the US, bimatoprost is available as Latisse® for better eyelash growth. For this purpose, the application is made with an applicator to the eyelash base on the upper edge of the lid. It is also used for medical indications (hypotrichosis = loss of eyelashes). The agent increases the growth of the eyelash hairs and makes them denser, longer and darker. Latisse® is prescribed by doctors in the United States when hypotrichosis is detected.
However, the effect of stronger growing eyelashes is not unlimited, it ends after a maximum of 16 weeks. Then the remedy, which after all can cause side effects, can be discontinued. The eyelashes return to their original appearance within a few months after weaning. Latisse® is also used at night. It should be noted that the iris can darken, which is harmless. The manufacturer points out that the solution may only be applied to the eyelash base. Should it come into contact with other areas of the skin, hair could also grow there
Eyelash growth was an immediate side effect of the drug bimatoprost, after which Latisse® was developed. Something like this happens more often: If pharmaceutical companies notice positive side effects of a drug, they like to develop lifestyle supplements on this basis. The drug Minoxidil, for example, was already discovered in the 1990s that he grows hair, today it is contained in hair restorers.
