Apparently, This New Drug Can Fix Overplucked Brows
By Emily Rekstis |
Anyone who’s lived through the ‘90s has likely fallen victim to overplucking their brows. With today’s brow trend being thick and full, the permanent damage this previous type of maintenance caused can, at times, be irreversible. However, scientists may have finally found a quick, easy fix.
A new exploratory study of topical drug RPHE-7193 from Rophe Pharma discovered that the drug can help stimulate hair growth, and, when applied specifically to the brow, hair would once again start to grow back in areas where it had previously stopped.

In the press release, the company notes that this drug produces a totally on-trend brow, stating that the “cosmetic result was more volume with thicker eyebrows” after just four-to-six weeks. Hello new Cara Delevingne-esque eyebrows!
According to the founder and president of Rophe Pharma, Robert Gadimain, researchers realized there had never been anything approved to treat thinning brows, which is why they decided to move forward with the study.
Yahoo! Lifestyle reports that the gel is applied to the brow once or twice a day. “We assume that after the eyebrow is regrown, the maintenance dose will be three-to-four times a week instead of twice a day,” Galgimain told the site. He also explained that, just like any other drug, if you do not continue to use it, the effects will fade away.
