Lash Growth Serum
in Mentor, OH
What Are Eyelash Serums?
Eyelash serums are non-irritating liquids applied directly to the lash line to help boost the length, volume, color, and even the health of your lashes. Because they improve your lashes’ natural growth, they’re a longer-term solution to mascara, which requires daily use and removal.
The creation of LATISSE® was a happy accident—it was first used as an eyedrop to treat glaucoma, with the fortunate side effect of causing eyelashes to become longer and thicker! RevitaLash®, meanwhile, was developed by an ophthalmologist to increase the overall health and appearance of eyelashes.
Which neurotoxin has been around the longest?
LATISSE® is FDA-approved as of 2008. LATISSE® contains a chemical called bimatoprost, which makes eyelashes grow for a longer period than normal, resulting in longer lashes. It also increases the number of hairs and makes them darker.
RevitaLash® contains a different chemical called latanoprost, which enhances the appearance of lashes by making them longer and stronger. It comes in a slightly lower concentration, which means it may take a bit longer to work compared to LATISSE®.
Both RevitaLash® and LATISSE® can also be used for thinning eyebrows.

What to Expect from Lash Growth Serum
BEFore your Treatment
Prior to applying lash serum, wash your face with a gentle cleanser. People who use soft contact lenses should also remove their lenses before application. LATISSE® comes in a dropper bottle with separate brushes for application. RevitaLash® resembles a liquid eyeliner, with the brush in the cap. Apply the serum at night to the upper lash line only, not the bottom. The serum will diffuse down into the lower lashes.
During your treatment
While using lash serum, avoid excessively scrubbing the eyes when removing makeup, wearing false lashes, or overusing an eyelash curler. Be sure to apply the serum consistently and do not skip days.
AFter your treatment
Both eyelash serums require ongoing use for full effects. They shouldn’t need to affect your routines in a significant way.

Are Eyelash Serums Safe?
Absolutely! Both LATISSE® and RevitaLash® have been around since the early 2000s. Dr. Greer has also personally used both.
Possible side effects include eye irritation and darkening of the eyelid skin, which is temporary and fades once serum use is discontinued. In extremely rare cases, there can be darkening of the iris.
There are certain populations, such as those with glaucoma or uveitis, who should not use lash serums, but eyelash serums are safe to use for most people with minimal side effects and have been trusted for decades.
