Brian Olack, M.D. Says Men Want Long Lashes Too

According to Dr. Brian Olack, the leading plastic and reconstructive surgeon based in Scottsdale, Arizona, “Long eyelashes have been popular for many years, and there have been numerous synthetic eyelash products on the market.  Because men do not want to use mascara or other synthetic products, LATISSE has become extremely popular as an eyelash stimulant, and the results have been fantastic.  What started as a product that was almost exclusively sold to females has seen a surge in popularity among men as well.”


One of Olack’s patients is a 49 year old man who said, “I’ve always had these very thin and blonde lashes until Dr. Olack suggested I try LATISSE.  After just three months my lashes are fuller, thicker, darker, and it really makes my eyes stand out.  I would never have used mascara or other products but this is a tested medicine and it really works.”


There has been a growing interest in this product ever since it was introduced. LATISSE is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.


LATISSE solution is an actual growth treatment. In fact, it is the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And it is the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription. LATISSE solution is a once-a-day treatment applied topically to the base of upper eyelashes, as instructed by doctor Olack. Then, gradually, the results come in. Some patients start to see more length in as little as four weeks and most achieve full growth in sixteen weeks.  Men like this because it their own eyelashes — only better.


LATISSE makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.


LATISSE is a treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes; it was developed through years of research by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with expertise in eye care products.


Dr. Brian Olack,, is developing a national and international base of male patients who want to take advantage of new medicines and new aesthetic approaches to looking better, healthier, and younger.  While the majority of LATISSE users may be women, Olack predicts and increasing number of men will be using the product over the next decade.
