View Full Version : *TRAVOPROST* better than ROGAINE?! Why is this missing from our discussions?

A female friend of mine mentioned TRAVOPROST is a Rx used by women to grow their eye lashes and eyebrows. She said the results are amazing and it's a well known Rx amongst women.

Anyhow, I looked up the drug and this study shows it's better than rogaine:


The results presented in FIGS. 4 and 5 and in the table of results below show that the minoxidil, in repeated daily administration for 21 days at the dose of 2.5%, accelerates the regrowth of the body hair in comparison with the ethanol carrier. Surprisingly, a single administration of travoprost at 0.01% significantly accelerates the regrowth of the body hair in comparison with the carrier with an amplitude of response (31%) identical to that obtained after repeated daily treatment of minoxidil at 2.5% (30%).

Contrary to all expectations, repeated daily and consecutive administrations for 5 days of travoprost at 0.01% do not accelerate the regrowth of the body hairs.

Anyone else have info on this? The generic name is TRAVATAN. Please make this an informative thread and only post relevant material. This is worth some research from all of us!

Ok so I got a little too excited.

Turns out this product has already been discussed everywhere, it's name is Latisse.

Apparently it's to expensive for most people to try and clinical trial results are still pending.
