There are several treatments for diminished eyelashes. These include camouflage techniques, surgical therapy, and medical therapy such as Latisse ®.
Camouflage techniques include mascara, eyelash perming, and eyelash extensions that are glued to your existing eyelashes or to your eyelid skin.
Surgical therapy includes transplantation of individual hair follicles into the eyelids. This is a fairly meticulous technique whereby hair follicles are harvested from one area on the scalp, then isolated into individual follicular units. These follicular units are then inserted into the eyelid skin in a precise manner to control the angle and direction of hair growth.
Latisse ® (bitamoprost 0.03%) is a topical agent for lengthening eyelashes. It is the first and only FDA-approved, science-based treatment that has been clinically proven to actually grow noticeably fuller, longer, and darker lashes.
Latisse ® works by lengthening the growth phase of the hair follicles of each eyelash. By prolonging the growth phase of the eyelash follicle, the eyelash hair grows longer, fuller, and thicker as seen in the Before & After split face photo below.
