Answer

Retrospective studies using either latanoprost or bimatoprost showed some regrowth of the eyelids while using intralesional triamcinolone concomitantly on the scalp and eyebrows, [32, 33] but all prospective studies using either drugs did not show statistically significant changes when used to treat either the eyelids or eyebrows. [34, 35, 36, 37]
