[music] Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz
and welcome to DermTV.
Many people have heard about new treatments to make eyelashes fuller,
longer, thicker and even darker. But what can you do if its your eyebrows
that are the problem? Maybe they aren’t full enough ...or your actual
eyebrow hairs are just too short or too thin? The good news is, you can get
back the eyebrows you used to have, or even get the eyebrows you've always
wanted but never had. You start with simple topical products: minoxidil and
bimatoprost. The 1st is over-the-counter, non-prescription minoxidil… This
is Rogaine. My patients use the 5% strength, even if it's labeled “for
men”. The second product is called bimatoprost... and this is Latisse…
which in the US you need a prescription for… it helps to make eyelashes
fuller, longer, darker and thicker... and now there are reports that it
also helps with eyebrows… and formal studies for eyebrows are underway...
Many people who've used each once a day… one in the morning… and one in the
evening… have seen a meaningful improvement in their eyebrows after 1 to 2
months but it can take up to 6 months to see results. And by the way, if
these don’t work for you, you can actually have eyebrow hairs transplanted…
it's a simple painless surgical procedure performed by a dermatologist who
specializes in scalp hair transplants... Individual hairs from your scalp
are inserted into your eyebrows. It's painless because of local anesthesia,
and I know that hair transplants works... you see… this was all
transplanted more than... 10 years ago!
