You can use Lumigan (bimatoprost) to increase length of your eyelashes only if your doctor has agreed that you have hypotrichosis.
Lumigan is also used to improve fullness, length, and color of the eyelashes in people with a condition called hypotrichosis, a lack of eyelash growth.
Speak to your physician before using Lumigan so that you understand all the risks and benefits.
Lumigan contains bimatoprost at a concentration of 0.01 %. Latisse is closely related but has three times the concentration of bimatoprost (0.03%). Latisse is FDA approved for eyebrow hypotrichosis (thin eyebrows).
The reality is that these drugs help elongate eyelashes and darken eyelashes in 80 % of users. Speak to your physician to understand all the risks and benefits.
