You have a few different options regarding reinforcement of your eyebrows.  Eyebrows are tremendously important as they are the subframe for the face, help us express our personalities by altering our countenance, and can highlight the mid facial features. Your 3 options are the following:

1.  medication:  Minoxidil and latisse are options.  Use q tip to apply.  Important to use daily.   If treatment stops, benefits will decline with time. 

2.  micro pigmentation:   gives the "appearance" of fuller thicker lashes.  Some limitations here but a great option for many patients. 

3.  eyebrow transplant:  scalp, leg/arm hair used with FUE (follicular unit extraction)  to design and create eyebrows that have been completely lost or reinforce eyebrows that have become scant.  Typically, 350-450 carefully selected follicular units (grafts) needed to restore one brow.

The best way is always non surgical.  Using latisse can definitely help with thin brows.  If that does not work well after 6 months, then you can look into eye brow transplant.  We would need to see a picture to give a better answer.

I would need to see pictures of your eyebrows, but thicker eyebrows can be obtained by (1) use of Latisse, (2) eyebrow transplants).
