What Have You Heard About Fysiko?

I keep seeing postings about Fysiko, but they seem like they might be from the company as they constantly tout the product as natural and that a prescription isn't needed. Have you heard of Fysiko? In your opinion is it a good product and on par with Latisse as they claim? If you have any other thoughts you want to share about it I'd love to hear.

Fysiko vs Latisse

There is nothing on par with Latisse, as Latisse is the only FDA approved eyelash product. There are many natural or other eyelash treatments on the market. Some may work, some may not. But as physicians it's important that we stand behind science-backed and approved products, not fly-by-night companies with who-knows-what in their products. So, Latisse is the only product that is approved, with scientific and medical proof, and safety and efficacy reports. Plus, over 4 millions kits of Latisse have been sold.

Use Latisse – It Really Works

Latisse is the first, and only, FDA-approved treatment for inadequate lashes.

Latisse is a prescription product so it can only be dispensed by a physician; that says something very important right there. Latisse grows eye lashes longer, thicker, and darker.  These changes in lash length, thickness, and darkness were measured by digital image analysis. Eyelash length, thickness, and darkness were statistically significantly more pronounced in the Latisse group at weeks 8, 12, and 16 compared with placebo.  At 16 weeks about 80% of patients using Latisse experienced at least a 1-grade increase on the 4-point Global Eyelash Assessment (GEA) scale. The results are published in Journal of The American Academy of Dermatology. 2012 May;66(5):801-6.

Since Latisse is a FDA-approved product you know that its safety has been evaluated. The side effects have also been documented in the clinical trials. And the reporting of the safety profile of Latisse is updated on a yearly basis, as required by the FDA.

Latisse is a great product and it really works.

Fysiko or Latisse

Latisse is a prescription-only solution that has been scientifically proven to stimulate the growth of eyelashes. Many studies have been done to prove its effectiveness using unbiased observers. At present, Latisse is the only FDA approved treatment for growing eyelashes. If you look at the web site for Fysico it says: "This product is not treating any diseases, not FDA approved". They give no scientific proof, just unproven claims. Unfortunately, the FDA has little control over companies such as these making any claims they choose.

Latisse vs Others

    Save your money and purchase Latisse.  No other medication has been demonstrated to grow eyelashes.  You must also consider that unstudied items may have unwanted and unknown side effects.
