This new drug that makes eyelashes grow and grow thicker,would you think it would help hair grow on the scalp used with minoxidil.It is listed as a side effect that it could grow hair on other parts of the body if it is put on the skin in that area. I would think that if minoxidil grows small hairs in one area that putting on Latisse applied before minoxidil would be a big help to hair growth.
See Scientific American for info on this drug. At the cost of $120 for a month, hair applications might be prohibitive. You can imagine a month supply will probably be an extremely tiny tube, since it is meant for your lashes. I will prescribe it when it is available.
