The Best Eyelash Enhancers: Recommendations from Dr. Parks
I can’t think of a single woman out there who isn’t interested in having long, thick, and full eyelashes. Patients frequently come to me searching for a miracle product to help with this. Often, they used to have longer eyelashes when they were younger, but notice that their lashes have started to fall out or not grow as long. Other times women have bad experiences with their eyelash extensions and begin losing their lashes from this.
Whatever the cause of the problem, there are several excellent products out there that will help your eyelashes grow longer and thicker. One caveat to all of these products is that once you start using them, you need to continue with them in order to continue seeing results. I would recommend any of these eyelash serums to help you grow beautiful, long, thick lashes, however, once you stop using any of these, your lashes will go back to how they looked before, so this product will be a long-term commitment. Here are my top eyelash enhancer recommendations:
Latisse (3 mL for $140):
When you think of eyelash enhancers, Latisse by Allergan is likely the first thing that comes to mind, as it was the first product of its kind. Latisse is a prescription product that was originally made for patients with Glaucoma. Once patients began using this, they noticed their eyelashes starting to grow and now this product is marketed for that purpose.
The downside to Latisse is that there is a possibility of some side effects, such as changing eye color, especially for those with light-colored eyes. Though this is not at all typical, this is why this product requires a prescription and a consultation with your physician before purchasing. Another disadvantage to this is that you’ll have to always restock at your doctor’s office, rather than being able to order the product conveniently online.
RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum (3 mL for $49.95):
This product uses the RapidLash patented HEXATEIN® 1 COMPLEX, consisting of six highly effective ingredients, which are all specifically designed to condition, moisturize and fortify to enhance overall appearance of more beautiful lashes and brows. This product has been clinically proven and ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested to improve the appearance of the lashes. It is also safe for contact lens wearers. This product can be used to help grow both the eyelashes and the eyebrows.

y.L. Skin Lash Advance Eyelash Conditioner (7.5 mL for $89):
In just four weeks, this clinically proven blend of proteins, vitamins and nutrients will allow your eyelashes to grow up to 82% thicker, longer, fuller and darker. 100% of the panelists tested showed a significant increase in the areas mentioned above, with the average increase of 54.81%…in four weeks. This is a brand-new product on the market that we’re very excited about and I love the fact that this comes in a larger size than any of the other products out there. Best of all though, this clinically proven serum is available without a prescription and is safe with no side effects.

Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum (3.5 mL for $110):
Like the other products mentioned above, the Alphaeon Beauty Eyelash Serum hydrates and conditions lashes, resulting in the appearance of longer, fuller eyelashes. This product has been one of our most popular and all of our customers and patients rave about it. Unfortunately, however, the brand has announced that they will be discontinuing this product in the very near future. Any of the above-mentioned products will be a great alternative to this for those who love it and have come to rely on it to grow their lashes.
