ABSTRACT: Hypotrichosis plays a role in the perception of beauty and attractiveness for many patients. Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (0.03%; Latisse, Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) aids in the treatment of hypotrichosis and offers a safe and effective method of achieving fuller, darker, and longer eyelashes, creating an aesthetically pleasing outcome. Nursing staff must obtain a comprehensive basis of knowledge with regard to the pharmacology, accurate application, and side effects of the drug in order to counsel patients on appropriate use and expected outcome.
