The Best Eyelash Serums on the Market
Do eyelash serums work, is a question many women have been asking since ads promising longer, falsie-looking lashes started inundating magazines and tv screens years ago. It's true that eyelash growth is possible with the right lash growth serum but, deciphering which brand is both effective and safe is often a point of concern—and rightly so. That’s why we tapped Dr. Purvisha Patel, board certified dermatologist and owner of Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Associates in Memphis, Tennessee for her top picks for eyelash serums that work. These eyelash growth serums range in price from less than $15 to $65 and will add some serious flutter to your lids without swiping on coats of mascara. Dr. Patel said mild eyelid irritation can occur with any of these products due to the some of the ingredients. To reduce the risk of eyelid infection, which can be transmitted between the eyes, ensure your eyelids are clean prior to application and keep brushes clean. With proper care, your lashes will be taking flight in no time.
Prescription Latisse is the best product on the market as far as Dr. Patel is concerned. “It was originally discovered when the active ingredient was used as an eye drop for cataracts and the patients developed long, luscious lashes,” she said. To decrease the transmission of bacteria between eyes and between applications the product comes with a separate applicator for each eye.
Dr. Patel warns that patients with a history of increased intraocular pressure should not use this product.
