The popular eyelash enhancement drug Latisse has reportedly harmed Claire Danes, the popular actress and spokeswoman for Latisse, although experts doubt the claims.
31-year old Claire Danes has openly spoken about how Latisse has helped her grow longer, lusher eyelashes, appearing in television and print ad campaigns. But rumor has it that the product popular in many doctors’ offices has actually harmed their spokeswoman, causing discoloration on her eyelids.
According the Huffington Post:
” Page Six writes, “a source claims that Danes’ makeup artist has to plaster on concealer to cover the purplish and yellowish shade,” and that the damage to the area around her eyes is pretty hard to cover up.
Claire’s handlers told Page Six, “Your claims are entirely false. We will pursue legal action if you print anything to the contrary. This story should be killed.” The folks at Latisse stayed calm, explaining Claire hasn’t “experienced skin hyperpigmentation.”
However, Claire does divulge in her Latisse video diary, “When I first started using Latisse, I did actually have a side effect. The skin around my eyes [was] a little bit red. That lasted for about a week. Since then, no, I haven’t had any side effects.”
Latisse users seem to be happy, and for the most part, don’t seem to suffer from the side effects listed on the Latisse website. Any redness around the eyes could be attributed to an allergic reaction.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer Ventolin price says, “It is possible that Claire Danes experienced an allergic reaction to Latisse, but the main ingredient in Latisse is what has been used for years to treat glaucoma. I have not heard of any real hazardous issues with this product.”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia says, “Latisse is a glaucoma medication that became a lash lengthener as the side effect was more desirable than the original use. Other less desirable side effects have been mentioned for the drug including irritation and staining of the eyelid. Could this be happening to the drug’s spokeswoman?”
“It is possible, but I haven’t seen this happen to any of the few people I have written for the drug. Then again I have not seen them much since I wrote the prescription.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says on his blog, “I strongly doubt it. A study reported by Latisse-maker Allergan quotes a 2.9% risk of temporary skin darkening, completely reversible with discontinuation of the product. In my practice, we dispense at least 3-4 boxes of Latisse each week and have not seen any complications from it. It’s actually surprising how may people seem to tolerate it and have really nice results.”
Latisse’s promise of long, full lashes has many forgoing the mascara and heading to the plastic surgeon.
