Oh, eyelashes! We bat them, flutter them, and boost them with mascara and lash extensions. Lately we have been spending lots of time getting eyelash extensions and fills to amp up our lashes. Even with the lash extension craze, serums and solutions to grow your own lashes remain very popular. To be clear, Latisse remains the only FDA-approved treatment for inadequate lashes and enjoys high patient satisfaction. Patients using Latisse experience longer, fuller and darker lashes. Not to be outdone, there are ever more brands releasing over the counter (OTC) serums with claims of strengthening and lengthening eyelashes. Most OTC lash serums contain biotin, peptides and hyaluronic acid to nourish and support eyelash quality with moderate success.
At SkinMD Seattle our patients who want to grow their own lashes have been very happy with use and results from Latisse Lash Solution and Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum.
Latisse is FDA-approved for application along the lash line of the upper eyelid and lengthens the lash growth cycle resulting in longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Full results are typically evident after 2-3 months of nightly use. Continued daily use is required to maintain maximum lash length.
Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum (AlphaLash) is a non-prescription, medical-grade lash enhancement serum, only available through core aesthetics specialty physicians. It is formulated with peptides, growth factors, copper peptide, biotin, vitamin B5, moisturizers, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories and is designed to be applied daily along the lash line of the upper eyelid. With daily application, 80% of users saw longer, thicker, more conditioned lashes after eight weeks. Additionally, lashes attain a lovely curve.
