I have your same problem and one of my wife who uses latisse for her eyelashes and she told me that it also work on her eyebrows.then i talk with my friends for latisse then he recommend othen product which is brow effect then My online research confirmed that Grow effect has effectively restored eyebrow growth for many women's, and I also found numerous doctors who agree. So - I decided to take a chance, bought grow effect. then after my wife use brow effect the result is comes fast and really awesome now she got really thicker and grow eyebrows.

What is the generic Latisse called and where do you get it? Do you need a prescription? I have much better lashes and some better brows with latisse but would like more brows. Maybe Rogaine?

The generic name for latisse is bimatroprost. One company calls it's generic Careprost. I order my supply from outside the USA. I have not had any trouble with this and have received the exact product I ordered. Outside the US, the generic form costs LESS than $40 per 3 ml bottle, I order 3 at a time & it lasts me more than 7 months. My rx is usually filled in India, but the last time it was filled on an island I cannot recall. One of my orders was filled with the brand name Lumigan, made by Allergan. An overseas order will take about 3 weeks to receive, give/take. I realize this sounds dicey, but I cannot afford $100 per bottle and I have trich. This med WORKS for me. You do not need an RX if ordering in some countiies outside the US. I have always had to pick up the pkg. from my post office and give a signature of receipt.

I tried bimatroprost on my eyebrows and found it did not work for me. I do not pull my brows, but they are thin from age. I use rogaine on my brows which does work.

It's been 8 weeks since I've been using generic Latisse on my eyebrows. Yesterday my friend said, "Hey, what's with the eyebrows?" They are deliciously filled-in but also slightly darker(unexpected)and more symmetrical (I brush on Latisse in an arch and later pluck the "outsiders"). The gray and patchiness is gone. My friend thought I had my brows dyed or tattooed. I may drop back to 3 times per week application and see if the results hold.

My eyebrows are looking great after 4 weeks! I'm totally amazed since they were pale and thin and mostly gone! I'm even using the product to shape the brow hair so they appear more symmetrical. I heard that after the brow is thick enough you can back off to 3 or 4 times a week application. I put 3 drops in the lid of the product and dip a short eyebrow brush into the lid. After using, I rinse the brush in hot water and set it in the open air to dry to reuse the next day. I won't use this brush on my eyelashes, though, because an eye infection is a possibility. My son is experimenting with a small bald spot on the crown of his head by just putting 2-3 drops. I asked him to photograph weekly. Unofficial scientific study!

I have been using it now on my eyebrows but only for about 3 weeks. I think I can see a difference already

Dear raindream, Do you mean cotton Qtips or foam ones?

I've been using Latisse for almost 2 months now. I put one drop onto a reflective surface which will suffice to apply to both eyes, upper and lower lashes. The results are well worth the price. I am fair skinned but do have very dark brown eyes, therefore pigmentation issues are not a worry. I do not use the application brushes supplied, it is a waste of product. I purchased some foam applicators, then found some cheapo Qtip things worked best. I have had no infections, and remain clean and cautious in order to stretch the product. I must say, my eyes never looked better.

I have been using Lumigan (same stuff) on my brows in the thin spots with GREAT results. I don't need to pencil them in anymore.

I have used Latisse on my eyebrows in hopes of filling in the sparse areas. After a few weeks I did notice new hairs growing in, but unfortunately they were in random places around my brows and NOT in the bare spots. The only other result was that I have some rather long eyebrow hairs...which is not exactly the result I was hoping for. In my case using Latisse on my eyebrows did not work so I wouldn't waste any product trying it again. I've read that extra strength Rogaine applied with a q-tip to bald spots may be effective for brow growth...might try that next.

Hi I wanted to ask if the bare spots on your brows are caused by overplucking or some sort of damage to your eyebrows? I had an electrologist remove the bottom 1/3 of my brows without my permission and I'm desperate to get the hairs back and not get an eyebrow transplant which always look weird. Thanks.

what about using the same applicator I used with upper eyelid to place what's left (latisse) on it on the lower eyelid? that is no extra dose. just a soft dose of latisse.

I have used latisse on my top and then on bottom for four months now. I know the directions say don't do the bottoms. I use it at night before bed. My lashes both top and bottom are amazing. Im hooked.

bimatoprost on lower lashes can cause trichiasis. This is aberrant lash growth in which the lashes can curl up onto the eye surface, causing pain and tearing. The pigmentation is brownish-red, not attractive. Worse in brunettes than blonds...

This is true. I've not used Latisse on my lower lid for over a year, and the brown/red under my lashes is STILL there.

My understanding from the doctor that prescribed Latisse said this is a forever task. If you stop using it your lashes will go back to the way they were before you started. Also, using Latisse on the bottom lashes causes brown pigmentation on the skin (ugly). As for eyebrows, Rogaine works GREAT!! I have been using it for 2 months and my eyebrows are gorgeous.

how often do you use Rogaine on your eyebrows? Thanks!

I haven't used on lower lashes yet. May try carefully. Mostly concerned that it doesn't dry or irritate crows-feet lines. I do use it on brows though and it works well for me. Mom also used it on brows and she had new hair growth - but she stopped because brows were growing in dark and didn't match her lighter color(silver :)) hair. I didn't have any lashes shed at all - I was concerned about that too. And I'm pretty sure that if you stop, your lashes return to previous condition.

Does anyone know if you have to use Latisse forever? Can you stop using it after you've achieved the results you want, or will they thin out again with discontinued use?

Hi lady_katie2 -- this may help answer your question: Are the results from Latisse permanent?
