Are there any treatments for people who are losing their eyelashes/brows?

My aunt is having chemo and is losing her eyebrows and eyelashes. She is looking for semi permanent eyebrows? Any ideas?

Really she needs to speak to her oncologist as chemotherapy is usually a contra indication to many treatments. I'm not so sure about brows but semi permanent lashes would not be wiseuntil her lashes have grown back. There is a theory that castor oil can Promote growth but I haven't any evidence this works. Henna cn be an irritant and possibly not advisable with chemo. As beauticians are not medically trained we cannot safely advise so best to speak to a trained medical professional. Sorry if I'm not being helpful :( I wish her a speedy recovery xx

I used revitabrow, which you can buy from QVC. All I can say is that it worked for me and I now have my eyebrows back. Apparently it was developed by a man for his wife who had cancer. You have to use it for a few weeks to allow the hair to grow back, for longer than the QVC 30 day money back guarentee. There's another product, revitalash, for eyelashes, which I havent tried. I'm not 100% sure you can use it while actually undergoing chemotherpy, but the advertising/instructions tell you.

Individual Eyelash extensions involves gluing the extension to the lash, so if shes loosing her eyelashes unfortunately the treatment wouldn't be worth while.

When the chemo is over I would recommend Rapidlash https://www.rapidlash.com/ one of my clients used after chemo and had a great result.

Try Latisse for your eyebrows. It has also been used for the brows. Other less expensive brands are Smart Lash, Revitilash and Rapid Lash.

Semi-permanent makeup is probably the best option. In can always be over-ridden with conventional makeup if any temporary changes are required. Charlene from Beauty-Perfection.com is one of the top practitioners in this field and her contact details are onsite. Hope all goes well and best wishes.

One option is a prescription only medication which is used for glaucoma however one side effect is it promotes hair growth (lash/eyebrow). Your aunt's oncologist or her GP could prescribe it for her, its called Lumigan (Bimaprost) also known mainly in the USA as Latisse. As there is various forms of chemo whichever treatment she chooses she should really check its ok with her oncologist.
