Update: Latisse approved by the FDA

To update a previous blog item, the eye-lash booster Latisse has been approved by the FDA. Expect to see it being sold in cosmetic practices sometime in February.

To recap, Latisse was originally a glaucoma drug called Lumigan, which has been in use for the last seven years. Patients reported side effects of enhanced eyelashes, which led Allergan to explore cosmetic applications for the drug. This is similar to Botox's birth as a treatment for excessive blinking that happened to smooth nearby wrinkles.
