Lash Serum Danger
Lash Serum Danger
When I was five I was told every Sunday by the ladies at church how gorgeous my thick, beautiful, long eyelashes were. I hated hearing that! So much so that one day after church I grabbed a pair of scissors and I cut my upper eyelashes off. I do not recommend it. When I would rub my eyes my now stubby eyelashes would go inside my lower eyelid and poke it. I was a farm kid with hay fever and other airborne allergies so I had to rub my itchy eyes a lot. It was a valuable lesson that I have never forgotten.

One of the options that has pretty impressive results and is growing in popularity is growth factor lash serums that help promote lash growth. There are a few FDA approved lash serums, but that doesn’t mean they are either safe or effective. So choose wisely as the side effects can sometimes be extreme and irreversible.
Choose your lash serum wisely as the side effects can sometimes be extreme and irreversible.
Many years ago it was discovered that a component of a glaucoma drug had an unexpected external benefit that resulted in longer, thicker and stronger eyelashes. Called Prostaglandin analogues (PGAs), this class of drugs was modified to be used as an agent to promote lash growth in the beauty industry. But every yin has a yang, and the side effects of this drug could be irreversible darkening of the iris, darkening of the periorbital skin, periorbital hollowing, and volume loss in the periorbital fat pad.
Recent studies have shown evidence that use of Latisse, a hormone hair growth promoter which uses PGAs to grow lash hair, can result in permanent fat loss around the eyes causing a sunken appearance of the eyes as well as irreversible displacement of the eye. Known as enophthalmos, it literally means that the eyeball is displaced in the orbital socket. Some of these side effects began to occur as early as one month after beginning treatment.
Although Latisse is intended for topical use it stands to reason that it can enter the eye and cause similar changes.
SkinWise Rx recommends and exclusively uses AnteAGE lash growth serum because it doesn't contain PGAs
SkinWise Rx recommends and exclusively uses AnteAGE lash growth serum because it doesn't contain PGAs and thus won’t result in fat loss around the eyes, enophthalmos, or periorbital hollowing. Anteage's unique serum contains twelve hair growth factors - including hyaluronic acid - and is free of parabens, prostaglandin, and fragrances.
