Growing New Hair with the Help of Eye Drops

Hair loss research is these days mainly focused on hair cloning and surgical hair regeneration. Both of these methods promise to solve the problem of balding men and women permanently. Not so much has been heard recently about new drug research and it seems that we will have to settle down for the medical treatments as we know them today such as Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride) for some time yet. However, there seems to be one drug that has been developed in a different field that could help us keep our hair a bit longer. It is called Latisse and this medication has been recently approved by the FDA for growing thicker, longer and darker eyelashes.

The generic name of Latisse is bimatoprost and this molecule has been originally developed to treat glaucoma (intraocular pressure). So when this solution can help us grow richer and longer eyelashes what would it do to our thinning hair? Some doctors started to prescribe bimatoprost, the sole active substance of Latisse, to their balding patients and are reporting great results as 70% of patients could see their thinning hair becoming healthier, thicker, growing longer and becoming more pigmented. Some patients could even report growing new hair around their hairline. Although this product may not present the ultimate solution to hair loss it can help slow down the balding process before more efficient surgical methods such as hair cloning become reality.
