First off , ive read here and there over the last few months of eyelash promoter like revitalash has caused eyelashes to grow like wildfire…Since then ive visited some other forums about that with many positive revies…then today, came across Travatan, a prescription antiglaucoma drug common side effects are many more new eyelashes forming,existing eyelashes growing super long and darkening,as well as possible darkening of the iris and eyelids due to its regulation of melanin overexpression…This stuff cost $34 for 2.5 ml but dont think we need much because for glaucoma,the dosage is only 1 drop per day in the eye yet it still affects eyelashes…I cant believe that hairloss research hasnt taken more notice of this to integrate these finding s into hairloss approaches Please give input youall…btw found this excerpt…
