How Do Eyebrow Serums Work?

Superpower Lash Growth Serum By Better Not Younger

Full brows with a graceful arch can accent your eyes in a way that nothing else can. Unfortunately, just as the hair on your head can become thinner over time, age-related hormonal changes can also decrease your eyebrow density. As a result, you may notice gaps and visible skin in areas of the brow bone where you’ve never before had problems.

On the other hand, maybe you’ve always had thin brows or made the mistake of over-plucking to create a shape. Regardless of the reason for your strand scarcity, eyebrow serums may help by creating the appearance of fuller, healthier brows.


Hope for Thinning Brows


What is eyebrow serum? Much like scalp serum, it is a liquid treatment that you apply directly to your skin and hair in areas where you want more strands—in this case, on the brow bone. There are several ways that serums work to improve brow hair fullness: 

    • Coating the strands: Certain eyebrow serums plump your individual hairs, creating the illusion of fullness by coating and separating each strand.
    • Tinting the hair and surrounding skin: Serums infused with color will temporarily tint your eyebrows and the skin between the hair fibers. This decreases your gaps and makes it appear that you have more hair than you do.
    • Penetrating the skin and follicles: Eyebrow serums that offer a long-term solution to thinning brows nourish and stimulate your follicles on a cellular level. As a result, their ingredients support thicker, fuller brows with less hair fall over time.

      How Long Do Eyebrow Serums Take to Work?


      Serums that work by coating or tinting your strands typically offer immediate results. For example, your eyebrows instantly appear darker and thicker than before. These serum types also rinse away thoroughly when you shower or wash your face, and your freshly washed brows will be ready for a new application.

      Conversely, eyebrow serums that encourage long-term results take more time for those initial improvements to become visible. Why? Because eyebrow hairs grow considerably slower than other body hairs. It may take two to three months of daily applications before you witness noticeable thickening.

      How Do Prostaglandin Eyebrow Serums Work?


      Some absorbing brow serums that target the skin contain lipids with hormone-like effects called prostaglandin, which can cause inflammation and other worrisome risks. For example, if a brow serum containing prostaglandin gets into your eyes or on your eyelid, it can lead to:

      • Redness.
      • Itching eyes.
      • Discoloration of your eyelids or iris.
      • Drooping eyelids.
      • Clogged tear glands.
      • Lowered eye pressure (if the serum touches your eyes).

      If you use prostaglandin-based eyebrow serums, take your time when applying the product. Use only a tiny amount at a time, so there's no excess that might drip into your eyes. And look for an alternative that has been clinically tested for safety and effectiveness.

      What Is the Safest Brow Serum?



      Better Not Younger’s Superpower Night & Day Brow Enhancing Duo delivers a tinting brow serum that works immediately and a nourishing long-term formula that vitalizes thicker-looking hair over time.

      Our formulas are safe and effective, made without prostaglandins, sulfates or parabens that could irritate the sensitive skin around your eyes.

      A Tinted Daytime Serum for Instant Results

      Each morning before applying your makeup, run the daytime serum applicator wand over your eyebrows using small upward strokes. The bristles plump up your brows and deposit a touch of color right where it’s needed!

      Our daytime serum is made from a blend of:

        • Vitamin B complex: A vitamin B deficiency can intensify age-related thinning. B vitamins like panthenol and niacinamide work to smooth, moisturize and supply crucial nutrients to your skin and brow hair.
        • Sodium hyaluronate: Sometimes used as a lubricant in eyedrops, sodium hyaluronate is a form of hyaluronic acid that attracts and retains water molecules to both hydrate and thicken the appearance of your eyebrow fibers.
        • Mineral pigments: Provide a natural, subtle tint of color to temporarily fill in sparse brow patches, letting you create the shape you want.

              A Nurturing Nighttime Serum for Long-Term Health

              Each night before going to bed, use the built-in applicator to dab this colorless serum onto your brows and the skin underneath. Focus your attention on the thinnest patches to condition and fortify your hair follicles while simultaneously promoting optimal brow health.

              Our nighttime brow serum includes a mix of:

              • Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide establishes brighter, smoother skin on your brow ridge.
              • Castor oil: This thick, nourishing oil is known for its eyebrow thickening effects. It is loaded with triglyceride fatty acids that smooth and condition your brow hairs. Additionally, castor oil strengthens and protects strands against breakage and premature hair loss.
              • Biotinoyl tripeptide-1: Each eyebrow hair grows from a single follicle. When they become dormant or unproductive, fewer strands grow, and your eyebrows become progressively thinner. Biotinoyl tripeptide-1 is a crucial ingredient that supports stronger and healthier brow-hair follicles.
