ABC 7 - KGO-TV/DT

  

Remarkable advances have been made to improve our looks -- including lasers for skin resurfacing and Botox to prevent wrinkles. Now there may be something to enhance eye lashes. New eyelash products may actually help grow lashes, and it all started as side-effects from common prescription drugs.

Los Angeles Latisse Special - Buy Now $70!


Eyelashes have become one of the hottest trends in cosmetics, the longer and thicker-the better.
Carrie Maher, Eyelash Extensions Client: "Today I'm getting eyelash extensions because I like the way they look."

Eyelash extensions involve individual lashes glued one-by-one above the base of each lash. The cost: $300 dollars for the first session and fifty dollars every two weeks for a touch-up. Although the price is steep, business is booming.

Helen Woo, Aesthetician: "They look very, very natural, but besides that the eyes look bigger and the lashes look lots longer and it looks really beautiful."

But instead of gluing on lashes - fascinating new research suggests we may be able to "grow" our own long lashes. Surprisingly, it all started with these three glaucoma drugs - called prostaglandin analogs. These new treatments for glaucoma other benefits and side effects.

 

Natural eyelash growth products are also available without the side effects of darkening the iris.  ActivLash is the only natural eyelash growth product available today.  In a recent study, Longer eyelashes are in present in 86% of the users, Fuller eyelashes in 94% and overall satisfaction was 88%.

Andrew Iwach, M.D., Ophthalmologist: "All three of these can make eyelashes grow in certain patients."

Some doctors are even telling patients to put a drop of one of these glaucoma drugs on a cue tip and apply it to the base of their lashes to stimulate lash growth.

But San Francisco glaucoma specialist Dr. Andrew Iwach says these are drugs meant to be put into the eye and warns they have one very serious side-effect.

Andrew Iwach, M.D: "In some patients there can be a change in the color of the iris." 


That's right, the iris color can actually darken or even change - especially in blue and hazel eyes and the change is permanent. (If you have blue or hazel eyes, do not use products that contain prostoglandin; i.e. Revitalash).

Professional Testimonials

Consumer Testimonials

Just like Jan Marini was pulled off of the market due to possible drug side effect, Revitalash has the same ingredient as Jan Marini eyelash conditioner (pulled out of the market). For patients using the prescription drug, using the Revitalash in addition to the drug may increase the risk of optic nerve damage because the extra dose of bimatoprost may decrease the prescription drug's effectiveness. Damage to the optic nerve may lead to decreased vision and possibly blindness. Recently, Revitalash has changed its formula, but the ingredients are not written anywhere on their website.

 
It didn't take long for marketers to come up with seemingly less risky eyelash products that are applied topically - like eyeliner. So far there are two different brands - one even lists an ingredient very close to a prostaglandin analog compound. The other boldly claims to grow lashes. they're expensive at about $160 a tube, but they still cost less than $300 dollar eyelash extensions..."if" they work.

Pam Farrell, a Corte Madera skin care specialist, was skeptical so she used herself as a guinea pig.

Pam Farrell, Aesthetician: After about five weeks, I was really quite surprised, I noticed that when I used an eyelash curler that my lashes were extending beyond the silver bar in the eyelash curler. My lashes grew, I think about a quarter of an inch beyond the eyelash curler."

One of her clients, Joanne Cooper, tried it on her short, thin lashes applying it along the base of her lashes each night.

Joanne Cooper, Eyelash Eyelash Enhancer User: "In about a month, my eyelashes were getting so long that they were hitting my glasses when I was wearing my glasses, so it works.

Kim Nguyen tried it on her very thin lashes.

Kim Nguyen, Eyelash Enhancer User: "After a good 6 weeks my lashes all really full and nice looking, you know - with a little mascara on - it's perfect."

Heather Cooper tried the lash grower after she spontaneously lost half her lashes.

Heather Cooper Eyelash Enhancer User: I woke up and I had missing eyelashes exactly on the same a whole patch on both eyes.

Almost immediately after using the lash product, she says her lashes grew back longer than before. Amazing claims that may be true, but so far there is no real research to show safety or efficacy of either of these products so check with your eye doctor first.

 

Reviews from Online Stores:

All of the eyelash products with any prostoglandin can potentially cause decreased vision and darkening of the iris. There are some new eyelash conditioners that are peptide complexes which grow eyelashes without any side effect. If jan marini eyelash product was removed, Revitalash and MD lash factor, and Massive lashes should be removed from the market as well. This tells me that FDA has targeted only one company. If there was any serious issues, than howcome they are not after the other ones. I think, the FDA was paid by Allergan. Conclusion: Bigger companies are manipulating the government to benefit themselves. That’s not fare. Do not buy Allergan Products please. Boycott Allergan including their other skin care products such as MD Forte, Vivete, Allergan.

In Los Angeles everyone uses Latisse for longer eyelashes.  I have started to use Activlash as a conditioner to maintain my longer lashes.   I started to use Latisse but a bit concerned with my hazel eyes so my doctor recommended adding Activlash.  With Latisse i got longer lashes but only a few were, now that I have added activlash, it has become fuller across my upper lashes.  I use Latisse only 2 X PER WEEK. very happy now.

Comment by Eyelash Extensions March 09, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I use latisse for my eyelashes.  i have great results from it.  I used to use Revitalash but since their formula changed, i did not get the same effect so I switched to Latisse.  

Comment by Mary February 20, 2012 at 9:00 pm

FDA has approved Latisse as the only one eyelash growth product.  I will stick with that.

Comment by Mary Lou - December 16, 2011

I just got my Latisse at NewSkin Laser in Northridge for $70. I can't wait to apply it on. 

Comment by Birken - March 20, 2008 at 7:31 pm

Revitalash has damaged my friends vision. She was seen by her optemologist. Her blue eyes are no longer blue. Revitalash reviews indicate that some people have experienced decreased vision.

Comment by jeff - April 1, 2008 at 12:27 am

My girlfriend also experiences darkening of her eyes after using Revitalash. Revitalash reviews reveal that some customers have experienced darkening of their eyes. Can someone tell me why this happens. Is it because of the prostoglandin use (which they are not suppose to use)?

Comment by Gary - April 17, 2008 at 9:19 pm

Any eyelash growth products or stimulators that are not based on prostoglandin. I just found out that Revitalash has been using a drug which was confiscated from another company.

Running out to get some of Activlash treatment serum!

Comment by Time to Bat - April 13, 2008

I just bought my tube of activlash and received it yesterday. Hopefully it works. Now days who doesn’t really wish they could look better? Botox, restylane, juvederm, smart lipo and revitalash are everywhere people go. We can’t stop it by just saying its “poison” like people say about Botox. Ok, it is, so what?! Didn’t it take ur wrinkles away? We are all going to age and die, so, let’s look good in the process of aging.

Comment by elsie - April 12, 2008
I have used both Revitalash (when Jan Marini was off the market) & then Jan Marini when it was reintroduced last year. It works for sure. However, I stopped due to blurring vision problems. I suspect this is the cause. Also, an eye dr. told me that it turns his patients’ blue eyes brown in spots, permanently!
Comment by Norma - May 5, 2008

I was skeptical at first, but did pay $130 for it based on my friend’s recommendation. Well, 6 weeks passed and nothing … then suddenly, my eyelashes grow, thicker and longer. No need for mascara anymore. You can find it cheaper at ebay for around $70 bucks.

Comment by Bonnie Anderson - May 6, 2008

Beware of Revitalash. $160 drained. No returns from revitalash official website because they are asking me to use it for more than 60 days. Poor customer service.

Comment by giesele - May 29, 2008
I have used many different eyelash products, and recently read about activelash product.  It works great.  I have beautiful eyelashes now.  I just should have applied it to the bottom ones every other day as they are just as long as the top ones.  I prefer the bottom ones to be shorter a bit. 
Comment by Isabel - Dec 5, 2008
Great eyelash product.  I like both Revitalash and Activlash.   Revitalash is expensive compared to Activlash.  I believe they are both by the same company as they feel the same.
