Eyelash Growth

Good, long and thick eyelashes frame the face and define the eye area. Eyelashes are a very pretty, appealing feature and everyone is trying to get thicker, longer lashes either by eyelash extensions, false eyelashes or trying to find the best mascara on the market to boost their appearance. As we know a good mascara that actually works is hard to find.

We are proud to offer the premium Obagi® ELASTILash® solution which is an alternative to the popular LUMIGAN® eyelash serum. To find out which treatment is best suited to your skin, please email us to arrange an appointment with Dr. Sally.

“I have used both the solution and serum myself and they REALLY work!”

Obagi® ELASTILash® Growth Solution

Why choose Obagi® ELASTILash® growth solution?

There is a simple but effective way to make your own natural eyelashes thicker and longer – Obagi® ELASTILash® solution! The solution comes as an easy to use wand. It is a once daily home application, I usually suggest at night before going to bed. The solution makes your own lashes grow stronger and longer. The results are noticeable just 7 days after first use and build up to their full impact after 3 months.

How does eyelash growth solution work?
• Opthalmologist Tested!
• Dermatologist Tested!
This once daily application of Obagi® ELASTILash® growth solution extends the time period that each individual eyelash stays in the growth stage of the hair growth cycle. As a result your lashes grow stronger and longer.

What does eyelash growth serum cost?
Obagi® ELASTILash growth solution is available on prescription only and as a result requires a consultation.

LUMIGAN® Eyelash Serum

LUMIGAN® is a bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0,01% which is originally used to treat glaucoma as an eye drop. The side effects from this eye drop showed that the patient’s eyelashes became stronger, longer, thicker and darker over time.

LUMIGAN®, like Obagi® ELASTILash, can slowly increase the growth, length and thickness of the eyelashes, these results are usually reversible when the treatment is stopped.

Why choose LUMIGAN® growth serum?
Everyone wants stronger and longer lashes! LUMINGAN® goes one step further – it thickens and darkens too.
LUMIGAN®, again a once daily home application of this eyelash growth serum at night before going to bed makes your own lashes grow stronger, longer, thicker and DARKER. No need for eyelash tints anymore!
The results are noticeable just 7 days after first use and build up to their full impact after 3 months.

What does eyelash growth serum cost?
LUMIGAN® growth serum is available on prescription only and as a result requires a consultation.

Manufacturer’s guidelines state that a bottle should be disposed of after a month and a fresh bottle opened for use.

Please note: As LUMIGAN® is more potent and a prescription only drug, it does have more side effects, which is why you must book a consultation with Dr Sally!


FAQs

What if I wear contact lenses?
I usually suggest to use the solution or serum at night when you have taken your contact lenses out. If this does not suit your daily routine then you need to apply the eyelash growth solution or serum while you have your contact lenses out of your eye. Once you’ve applied, wait 15 minutes before inserting your contact lenses.

What side effects should I consider with using the eyelash growth solution or serum?
For both products side effects are few and far between but the most common side effects include possible redness, itchiness and skin dryness around the area of application.

For LUMIGAN® there are more rare side effects including darkening of the eyelid skin which can be reversible. Accidental continued incidence of getting the serum into the eye itself can possible have a side effect of causing increased brown iris pigmentation of the coloured part of the eye which is likely to be permanent. This is extremely rare but getting the serum into the eye should always be avoided.

Also with LUMIGAN® it is possible for hair growth to occur in other areas of your skin that the serum frequently touches. Any excess solution outside the upper eyelid margin should be blotted with a tissue or other absorbent material to reduce the chance of this happening.

What happens if I stop using the eyelash solution or serum?
Continued use of the both the solution and serum will cause your lashes to grow thicker, longer, and with LUMIAN® they will even become darker, however, once you stop using the solution or serum, new eyelashes which grow through will grow at the normal rate that they used to grow at before you used the products.

Do I get a discount if I buy more than one bottle?
YES! One bottle of the Obagi® ELASTILash solution costs £55 but if you buy three bottles giving you three months’ supply it costs £150 saving you £15.
One bottle of the LUMIGAN® serum costs £70 but if you buy three bottles giving you three months’ supply it costs £195 saving you £15.

How do I apply the solution or serum?
Once you’ve had your consultation and decided to go ahead with purchasing either the solution or serum, depending which product is correct for you, you’ll be given either an Obagi® ELASTILash wand or a LUMIGAN® eyelash serum pack to take home.
For LUMIGAN®, as well as the serum bottle with instructions, you’ll also be given special applicators which you need to use to coat your lashes with and dispose of after each use. It’s important you follow the instructions I give you accurately.

Will I be shown how to apply the solution or serum?
Yes. In your consultation with Dr Sally everything will be explained to you.
