Eyelash Growth
Eyelash Growth – an overview

The desire for longer eyelashes is not new and over the years many things have been tried. Kohl, a dark chalky substance, was first used by the Ancient Egyptians to enhance their eyelashes and is still in use today. Although mascara and other makeups make eyelashes appear longer, growing your natural eyelash has always been desired.

Mylash offer treatments, such as Latisse, that have been clinically proven to grow eyelashes longer. Before Latisse, the closest available treatments were conditioners that help minimise breakage. To go beyond your natural limits, Mylash offers the only option.

The treatment offered is a prostaglandin analogue that stimulates the natural hair cycle. Each hair on your body is working through the hair cycle at varying rates but the steps that make the series are always the same.


Anagen is the growing phase of the cycle. The hair bulb produces thousands of cells that are pushed upwards, becoming keratinised and shaped into a column that forms the hair shaft. Melanin is released into the shaft and the type of the melanin determines the hair colour.

This cycle varies in length depending on the location of the hair. The scalp cycle lasts 3 – 5 years and produces 1cm of hair per month. Eyebrows grow rapidly and finish this cycle within 8 – 10 weeks.


Catagen is the transition phase that signals the end of the growth part of the cycle. The developing hair bulb stops growing and the process to form a replacement hair is started.


Telogen is the resting phase in between growth cycles. The existing hair follicle is no longer productive and the existing hair shaft is shed, allowing space for the new hair to replace it.

Bimatoprost, the active ingredient used by Mylash, stimulates this cycle to elongate the growth phase to produce a longer and thicker hair. The treatment also causes more melanin to be produced, resulting in a darker hair.
