One of the most popular medicines used to treat hypotrichosis is bimatoprost. Hypotrichosis means that hair doesn’t grow back or grows very slowly.
However, eyelash hypotrichosis is a specific type of hypotrichosis that means not having enough eyelashes. A very average number of thin, errant eyelash hairs are present in hypotrichosis.
Eyelashes on people:
Eyelashes cover the lower and upper lids of each eye in humans. Most people have more eyelashes on their upper eyelids than on their lower eyelids. There are terminal hairs in the eyelashes, and they are thicker and longer than other terminal hairs on the face, like facial hair. Eyelashes are the hairs on the face that are the widest. How long someone’s eyelashes are depends on many things, like what race they are. At the end of the telogen phase, the hair falls out of the hair shaft. Because of this, one eyelash has a life cycle that lasts about three to six months.
Hypotrichosis has these causes:
Because eyelashes are genetic, if you come from a family of people with thin eyelashes, you will be born with short eyelashes too. On the other hand, hair loss can also happen because of getting older, being sick, or medical treatments like chemotherapy. Some people who are allergic to a drug or treatment may also lose their eyebrows. Trichotillomania or physical harm to the face or eyes can result in eyelashes that are too thin or not present at all.
When you lose your eyelashes
Sometimes you will lose your eyelashes, which is normal. But if you lose too many, it can cause health problems. Loss of eyelashes breaks down the shield that protects the eyes from the outside world. These shield the eyes from sunlight, wind, dust, and other outside elements.
When something touches the eyelashes, the eyelids close right away to protect the eyes. Hypotrichosis, or the loss of eyelashes, makes the eyes more susceptible. Eyelashes also define how beautiful your eyes look.
How to treat hypotrichosis or lack of eyelashes:
Careprost is one of the best items on the market that can be used to treat Hypotrichosis. This is an amazing new product that could help make eyebrows longer and thicker. It is Bimatoprost ophthalmic 0.03% that does the work in Careprost. The FDA has approved bimatoprost for use in eyelash hypotrichosis, which is what it is in the Careprost product.
When bimatoprost binds to prostaglandin receptors in the hair shafts, it does its job. Because it is a prostaglandin, it makes the hair shaft grow and lengthens the growth part of the hair cycle.
In this way, it helps hair grow long. It is also known that bimatoprost makes dermal papillae bigger, which makes hair thicker. On the same note, it is known to activate melanocyte cells, which help make eyelash hair darker.
Careprost is a tool that does all three of these things at the same time. It helps the eyebrows get longer, fuller, and darker.
Here’s how to use Careprost:
Make sure your face and hands are completely clean before you put on Careprost. If you have eye makeup or contacts on, you should take them off. Now, put a drop of the Careprost solution on the brush and use it to apply the medicine to the upper eyelash line. Do not put it on the bottom lash line. For each use, use a different brush. Do it again with the other eye. For the best effects, use the product every day for 4 months.
After 3–4 weeks, you’ll start to notice a change, but keep using it every day until your eyelashes are the length you want them to be. After a while, you can use the product only three times a week to keep the length.
Careprost should never be stopped because it can cause eyelash hair to fall out or return to its normal shape.
Here are some possible risks of Careprost:
Even though it’s safe, this drug has some side effects, just like all other drugs. The side effects that happen most often are:
- Itching and redness
- Changes in skin color
- Permanent changes to the iris’s color to a dark one
- Skin that is dry and itchy, etc.
