Comparing Popular Eyelash Serums
Life is short…your eyelashes shouldn’t be! Mascara can create the illusion of longer, fuller and darker lashes but growth serum can provide a more permanent solution. At the Vein Centers of Connecticut, our aesthetic treatments and products reveal a more youthful appearance and help patients regain their confidence.
LATISSE® is the first FDA-approved prescription for hypotrichosis; inadequate or lack of lashes. There are also many over-the-counter options to grow your eyelashes. How do these products compare to Latisse?
When applied to the base of the upper eyelashes, Latisse extends the growth cycle to produce more hairs. Latisse is clinically tested and approved to start growing enhanced lashes in just a few weeks! With continued use, the formula remains effective over time.
Bimatoprost, an active ingredient in Latisse that’s also used as a glaucoma treatment, has been proven to encourage eyelash growth and thickness.
Other Lash Serums
If you’re considering Latisse but are curious about other products on the market, we review some of the popular alternatives:
- LashFOOD: Vegan formula that strengthens weak lashes without irritation
- neuLash: Nourishes, grows and protects lashes against future damage
- RapidLash: Improves shine and thickness, adds moistures and limits breakage
- RevitaLash: Strengthens and conditions more so than lengthens lashes
These alternatives are ophthalmologist or dermatologist tested, but not guaranteed effective for all users. We endorse Latisse because it has been clinically tested and proven effective for longer, thicker and darker eyelashes.
Latisse is a highly recommended prescription treatment, so it should only be used under doctor care. Our experienced clinicians show patients how to properly apply the treatment and can help monitor the progression of lashes over the 16-week period recommended for optimal results.
It’s important to note that the products featured in this article are different from lash extensions. Eyelash extensions are made from synthetic material and attach to your existing lashes to achieve a temporary look.
