Your burning questions about eyebrow growth serum answered! From how it actually works to possible side effects, here’s what you need to know.
How does eyebrow growth serum work?
The best eyebrow growth serums contain good-for-brows ingredients to keep them strong against external aggressors to limit the number of breakages.
Effective ingredients to help your natural brows become their most lush selves include -
Peptides: To promote healthy hair follicles to stimulate thicker, longer eyebrow hairs.
Biotin: One of the most important ingredients in eyebrow growth serums, biotin is a water soluble vitamin that plays a huge role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails. Quality eyebrow growth serums will contain biotin.
Vitamins: In addition to biotin, serums will also contain other vitamins to promote hair growth.
Vitamin A, in particular, supports hair growth and will have a positive effect on the length and thickness of the eyebrows.
Plant oils: To condition and slow the fall out of existing eyebrow hair.
Amino acids: These are actually the building blocks of protein which is what hair is made of!
Will eyelash growth serum work on eyebrows?
This depends entirely on the product you choose.
Some serums, like PONi’s Eyelash Growth Serum, work beautifully on both eyelashes and eyebrows.
Don’t assume this to be the case with every eyelash serum. Always, ALWAYS, read the directions for application as the ingredients in some formulations won’t play nice with both brows and lashes.
Which brings us to the next FAQ about eyebrow growth serum.
Are there side effects?
The sensitive areas of skin around your eyes and brows can easily become reactive to products and ingredients.
It’s super important to research the ingredients your serum contains to know exactly what you are putting on your skin.
Side effects like redness, itchy eyes, eyelid discolouration, and eyelid drooping have been most commonly associated with eyebrow growth serum products that contain an ingredient called prostaglandin. Isopropyl cloprostenate is another ingredient to avoid - found in many synthetic formulations, it’s a known irritant.
We say - why risk it!? Choose a safe, natural formulation free from the potential irritant chemical ingredients you’ll find in synthetic serums.
Serums made in Australia in TGA approved labs cannot contain any harmful ingredients - they’re generally much safer to use.
Whether you choose a natural or synthetic serum, please always do a patch test first.
How long will it take to see results?
Most eyebrow growth serums take anywhere between 3 - 6 weeks to see results but the brow payoff for a quality serum is totally worth the wait.
You need to be consistent with the application so stick to exactly how often you’re instructed to apply it.
