Should you use bimatoprost or should you opt for natural remedies?
Bimatoprost is a prescription drug and must be used only after you consult a doctor because it can have some side effects. Side effects vary according to individuals. However, the side effects are not quite serious except in a few cases and for most women, it is safe to use this wonder medication to enhance eyelashes. You could, of course, try natural home remedies such as applying olive oil to the lashes. Women have been known to resort to the use of green tea, lemon peels soaked in castor oil or even trim hair to encourage hair growth in order to get darker and thicker eyelashes. However, such home remedies may not work in all cases, especially in women affected by inadequate eyelashes or hypotrichosis, such natural home remedies may not work whereas bimatoprost does work as has been proven in clinical trials.
How does bimatoprost work?
The exact mechanism of action of bimatoprost is not clearly understood. In its chemical structure bimatoprost is similar to prostaglandins secreted by glands in the body. When you apply bimatoprost along the eyelashes it is absorbed by the skin and by the hair follicles. Scientists believe that bimatoprost works to keep the hair in the growth phase for a longer period. Normally, hair has a defined period of being dormant in the follicle, of growth and then of fall but bimatoprost keeps hair in the middle stage of growth. Bimatoprost also increases the number of sprouting hair. This results in more number of hairs and gives the impression of thicker, darker and longer eyelashes.
How do you use Bimatoprost?
Bimatoprost has a local action. This means that it works only in those areas where it has been applied to the skin and hair, promoting hair growth and keeping hair in the second, hair retention, phase. As such you need to be careful in the use of bimatoprost for thicker, darker and longer eyelashes.
