Countering the Effects of Aging: Beyond Skin Care

August 9, 2013

Perhaps you are like many women, willing to put time and effort into maintaining a glowing and youthful appearance that leaves you feeling confident and beautiful. You take great care of your skin with sunscreens, skin rejuvenation products, and occasional chemical peels. Maybe you even go the extra mile with Botox injections or dermal fillers to reduce lines and enjoy smoother skin. When it comes to the condition of your skin, you are satisfied with the results that these products and procedures achieve.

But aging doesn’t only affect the skin. In fact, as some women age, they find that their eyelashes have become thinner than they once were. If you are doing all you can to reduce lines around your eyes, you may also have a desire for long, thick eyelashes.

Treatment for Thin Lashes

Many women rely on cosmetics to frame their eyes with long, thick, elegant lashes, but even cosmetics can fall short if your lashes are extremely sparse to begin with. Whether your thin lashes are due to aging, a longtime habit of inadequately removing mascara and other eye makeup, or hypotrichosis, a condition of insufficient eye lashes, there may be something you can do.


Latisse is the first and only FDA approved (prescription) treatment that is demonstrated to grow longer, thickerand darkereyelashes. In the Latisse clinical trials:

  • 100% of patients experienced either lengthening, thickening or darkening of their lashes
  • 80% of patients experienced all three of these outcomes

Latisse may be just the solution to enjoy darker, fuller lashes. Results are typically achieved gradually, over a period of weeks. Results may vary. There is a possibility of side effects, such as:

  • Itching and redness of the eye
  • Darkening of skin on the eyelid
  • The colored part of the eye may show signs of an increase in brown pigmentation
