Eyebrow serum is a product that enhances the skin around the eyebrow area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and relieving puffiness. Not every eyebrow serum works for all symptoms, however. One type of eyebrow serum might be effective against wrinkling and swelling, where another eyebrow serum may only work on reducing the appearance of fine lines. The user needs to determine which symptoms she has, and select her eyebrow serum accordingly.

Some people have sparse eyebrows because of over-tweezing, side effects from medications, or genetics. For them, using specific types of eyebrow serums may help promote eyebrow growth, however, these serums are generally available only by prescription. It is important to read labels on eyebrow serum packages carefully and pay attention to any warnings or cautions. To better get acquainted with the type of eyebrow serum they've chosen, people may want to consider reading online reviews of the chosen serums. This might give consumers a better idea of how the products work and if other consumers were satisfied with those products.

Prior to using an anti-aging or eyebrow preparation, skin sensitivity and history of allergic reactions should be taken into consideration. Patients with a history of allergic reaction to cosmetics should consult a dermatologist, who can recommend a hypoallergenic treatment for eyebrow wrinkles, hair loss, and puffiness. Avoiding a medical consultation when considering the use of an eye preparation may result in eye irritation or even vision loss.

Most eyebrow preparations contain substances that help retain and replenish moisture. The eyebrow area is very dry and prone to flaking and itching. When skin around the eyebrow area is dry, eyeshadow is likely to fade and look flaky. Replenishing moisture to dry eyebrow skin will prepare the skin to better accept eyeshadow, allowing it to better adhere and stay true to its color.

Many eyebrow treatment products offer guarantees that allow consumers to get their money back if the products don't do as they claim. Many guarantees require that consumers use the products for at least 30 days to see results, before the guarantees will be honored. Some people will forget about the guarantees, however, and will not follow-up, even if the products don't work well. In addition, many manufacturers require that consumers send back the unused portions of the products before the guarantees will be honored.

My sister has Alopecia which causes hair loss. She is using an eyebrow serum, not to make them grow, but rather to prevent hair fall.

@candyquilt-- I think most eyebrow serums are made to help grow eyebrows or make them healthy. Other types of eyebrow serums are not as common.

And usually eyebrow serums are for eyelashes as well. Most of the serums I have seen were labeled for use on both eyebrows and eyelashes. These are usually serums with natural oils and vitamins to help hair grow or become thicker. Of course, they don't all work equally well.

I've never seen an anti-wrinkle eyebrow serum before. I didn't even know that this type of product exists. I thought that eyebrow serums are just for promoting growth of eyebrow hair.

I don't really see the point in using an anti-wrinkle eyebrow serum either because a serum made for skin around the eye could easily be used around the eyebrow. So why purchase a separate product for the eyebrow area?
