There has been a lot of recent buzz regarding growing siberian mink fur strip lashes , making them fuller, and much more noticeable. For years, mascara has been the predominant way of making siberian mink fur strip lashes thicker and more prominent. Recently, there has been a flood of new interest in other methods of promoting thicker, fuller lashes. New products have come to market, and interest in cosmetic surgery for eyelash thickening is peaking. Do these new topical treatments work? Is cosmetic surgery the only answer to fuller, healthier lashes? Let’s cover what is currently out on the market for those wishing to try things other than mascara for more lustrous lashes.
Lonln Topical Treatments
New topical solutions have entered the market in an effort to promote healthier eyelash growth at the follicular base at the eyelid margin. The theory is that by nourishing and stimulating the eyelash follicle, extra growth may occur. Keep in mind that eyelash growth is genetically determined, and like hair on the head, its thickness, color, and distribution is determined by familial genes. However, as Rogaine is used to chemically stimulate hair growth and thicker hair, new eyelash products attempt to do the same thing. Whereas Rogaine has been scientifically proven to provide results through years of study, these newer products have not been scientifically proven and no truly predictable conclusions can be made about their effectiveness other than personal use and patient testimonials. The initial reviews have been fantastic and it is a fine idea to try these products to see if they work for you first before considering surgical or more invasive options. The leading products are:
LashGro by Revitalash MD
Jan Marini Age Intervention Eyelash
Osmotics FNS Nutrilash Lash & Brow Enhancer
With limited downside, inexpensive cost, and potential for excellent results, these products are excellent first options for you to achieve your thicker, fuller lashes!
For years, eyelash transplantation was performed for burn/trauma victims who had lost the ability to grow siberian mink fur strip lashes secondary to destroyed follicles. The surgery involves taking hairs from an androgen-independent area, such as the nape of the neck, and transplanting single follicles into the eyelid margin. Each hair removed from the neck is prepared microscopically and then inserted individually into the eyelid under local anesthesia. The procedure takes 1-2 hours and the costs can be quite substantial. These new siberian mink fur strip lashes grow much like the hair on the back of the neck, and must be trimmed regularly as one would do for a haircut. Keep in mind that whatever type of hair you have on your head (thick, thin, curly, kinky) will also grow similarly from your eyelid. Please visit your plastic surgeon for a formal consultation to determine if this procedure is right for you.
