  6. Subjects who are Women of Childbearing Potential (WOCBP) must have a negative serum pregnancy test at Screening and a negative urine pregnancy test at Baseline and agree to use a highly effective method of birth control for the duration of the study and for 30 days after last study medication application.
  7. Subject is non-pregnant and non-lactating and not planning a pregnancy during the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last study medication application.

  9. Subject is willing and able to follow all study instructions and to attend all study visits.
  10. Subjects taking hormonal replacement therapy must have been on the same dose for at least 6 months prior to Visit 1 and must agree to maintain the same dose for the duration of the study and for 90 days after the last study medication application.
  11. Subjects taking thyroid replacement therapy must have been on the same dose for at least 6 months prior to Visit 1 and must agree to maintain the same dose for the duration of the study.
  12. Subject agrees to refrain from any eyebrow removal (e.g.¸ plucking, threading, etc.) for the duration of the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject has, in the opinion of the investigator, permanent eyebrow loss attributed to causes other than AA, AU or AT such as overgrooming, or scarring hair loss.
  2. Subject currently has, or has a history of, skin disease in the eyebrow area (e.g., psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, etc.) that, in the opinion of the investigator, would interfere with the study medication application or study assessments.
  3. Subject currently has, or has a history of, severe, progressive or uncontrolled autoimmune, metabolic, endocrinologic, renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, cardiovascular, genitourinary (i.e., renal disease), hematological disease, neurologic or cerebral disorders, infectious disease or coagulation disorders that, in the opinion of the investigator, put the subject at undue risk by study participation.
