Approved by the FDA in 2008 for eyelash growth, our friends at Allergan will begin testing LATISSE for growing hair on the scalp. The clinical trial will determine if LATISSE is effective for male and female pattern baldness, types of alopecia. If LATISSE proves effective, it is reported that it would most likely be sold as a cream that could be applied to the scalp. We have no idea what that might cost but it is a potential treatment for many of our patients, male and female, who experience hair loss. Of course, it could be many years before the product actually makes it to the market. Stay tuned.
