Eyelash Growth Treatments – by Leading Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai, in London

What are Eyelash Growth Treatments?

There are various solutions that we can use to encourage the natural growth of the lashes and brows, including topical Bimatoprost or human growth factors. However, Dr Sabrina often prescribes AQ Lash, which is a safe and natural serum formulated to restore the health and vitality of eyelashes and eyebrows and which works by naturally encouraging hair matrix production. With regular daily use, it encourages fuller, longer, and more youthful-looking lashes and brows with less breakage – and without the undesirable side effects commonly associated with other lash-enhancing products.

What causes thinning of eyelashes and eyebrows?

Chronic Blepharitis and ageing can both contribute to the loss or thinning of eyelashes and eyebrows, while some metabolic conditions, endocrine disorders and skin diseases can also play a part.

How does eyelash growth treatment work?

Use AQ Lash once and day and always make sure the eye area is clean and dry before starting. Apply one droplet of AQ Lash onto the unused applicator. With a single, sweeping stroke, apply to the eyelid skin at the base of the upper and lower eyelashes as if you were using an eyeliner. Repeat two to three times on both eyes, starting from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. There is no need to add additional droplets after each stroke. The same applicator can be used for both eyelashes and eyebrows in a single use, but the applicator should then be discarded.

Commonly Asked Questions about Eyelash Growth Treatment

How do I apply it to eyelashes & eyebrows?

Apply once a day to clean, dry skin. Apply one droplet of AQ Lash onto clean unused applicator (supplied). Apply to the eyelid skin at the base of the upper and lower eyelashes in a single sweeping stroke, repeating two to three times, starting from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye; just as you would an eyeliner. Do this for both eye and there is no need to add additional droplets after each stroke. Repeat sweep on upper and lower lash line to make sure product is saturated. Discard applicator after use.

What other treatments improve eyelash and eyebrow growth?

Alternative treatments include Lumigan and Latisse®, both of which are growth-factor bimatoprosts (drops used to treat high pressure in the eye). Latisse® is currently awaiting FDA approval in the UK and may cause increased and permanent brown pigmentation of the coloured part of the eye, as well as eyelid skin darkening and hair growth on skin it frequently touches. Other common side effects include itchy and red eyes.
