    Wow, I hope this is true. I just don't know if I have five years to spare :(

    I hope that it is true as well. It sounds pretty plausible to me. What encouragement! Thank you so much for posting it!

    It would be nice to have something topical other then rogaine! :)

    Thanks for sharing. It's nice to hear that some new products that offer more hope for us are about to hit the market.

    The topicals are probably for Androgenetic Alopecia and the injectable is probably something for use with Alopecia Areata, but that's just my guess. It will be so nice if they have some great new treatment options coming out for the two most common forms of Alopecia. :)

    Here's an excerpt from his blog:

    My dermatologist (who is also well known hair loss specialist in NYC) prescribed a 3 month supply of Latisse to me as an option for my hair loss treatment. I will probably try this next month. The negative side, its expensive and is NOT covered by insurance.

    I used Bimatoprost on my brows, which I had overplucked in my 20s. It took about 4 months to see any effects. It did not regrow hairs, but it made the existing hairs darker and thicker. The brows went back to normal one month after discontinuing.

    I started using Rogaine on my brows in March and it has definitely regrown hairs I hadn´t seen since my 20s. My brows look thicker and fuller too. Rogaine is the clear winner between the two drugs.

    If the Bimatoprost solution for hair is affordable, I´ll definitely try it too. I didn´t get any irritation from using it on my brows. I suspect it will only make existing hairs grow thicker and darker, which would take a long time to see, but anything helps I suppose.
