Having long, luscious eyelashes is a major trend in this day and age, so patients need to be aware not all last growth products to achieve this look are created equal! Moreover, patients need to be aware these products can impose serious side effects if they’re not monitored closely by a trained professional. The team at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery is sharing the 4-1-1 on these products and whether or not they really work!
According to customer reviews, eyelash serums with “natural” ingredients like panthenol, hyaluronic acid and glycoprotein can help build stronger, longer lashes. Panthenol enhances the appearance and texture of hair, which includes eyelashes. This pro-vitamin (B5) repairs damage and helps keep eyelashes thick and strong. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant for joints, nerves, hair and skin and may promote blood flow for healthy hair growth.
Glycoprotein is an ingredient that is supposed to stimulate the growth of hair follicles and are involved in cellular repair. You may want to consider looking for products with these ingredients for effective results. That being said, there are mixed reviews on some of the products available on the market today, so we can not say with certainty which ones will deliver the best results. What we can say is, Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery provides patients with a clinically-proven product that is one of the best in the industry.
Plastic surgeons Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa offer the first FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate lashes called LATISSE®. This once-nightly treatment is applied on the base of your upper lash-line to grow longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. Patients have reported seeing results in as little as 4 weeks, with full results achieved in 16 weeks.
Clinical studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of LATISSE® and study participants reported that after 16 weeks:
- Eyelash darkness increased by 18%
- Eyelash length increased by 25%
- Eyelash thickness increased by 106%
