As you age, eyelashes can thin and become less noticeable. Individuals who desire longer, fuller lashes should consider a topical eyelash serum - a solution applied to the upper eyelid at the base of the lashes. Eyelash serums, such as Bimatoprost have been shown to increase the eyelash hair growth cycle, resulting in fuller, longer eyelashes that can make your eyes look brighter and more wakeful.
The prescribed solution is self-applied to the upper eyelid at the base of the lashes twice a day. This eyelash serum increases the number of eyelash hairs during any given growth cycle, resulting in existing eyelash hairs being replaced with new ones that are fuller, longer, and darker - giving your eyes a brighter, more vibrant look.
Users may see a significant improvement in eyelashes within two months, with the optimum improvement occurring after four months of use.
How it works
Eyelash growth is a cyclical process, and each lash may be in a different phase of growth. In the growth phase, new lashes grow and push out older lashes in front of them. The length, thickness, and darkness of each lash are determined by how long it is in the active growth phase. Serums work by prolonging this growth phase. Results appear gradually, reaching full results at about 16 weeks.
Using Eyelash Serums
Eyelash serums are a once-a-day, at-home treatment, applied topically. Because they are a prescription, eyelash serums do require a consultation. During the consultation, a physician will determine whether you are a candidate, provide instruction on how to use the serum, and review any possible side effects.
What happens when I stop using the eyelash serum?
Over several weeks to months, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance.
Are Eyelash Serums for everyone?
Eyelash Serums are not for everyone. You may not be a candidate if you:
- are allergic to one of its ingredients
- have had a previous diagnosis of eye pressure problems
- are currently on medication for eye pressure problems
- have risk factors for glaucoma, including a family history of glaucoma
