If eyes are truly the window to the soul, don’t you want yours surrounded by the most youthful and gorgeous lashes possible? Just like human skin, our lashes age with time. They can become shorter, brittle, lighter and thinned out! We can feel like our eyes are literally disappearing because we lose the dark contrast of our lashes against our eye color. Luckily, there are some incredible treatments that FACE Cosmetic Skincare offers that promise to restore length, hydration and fullness to your lashes.

Our skin often steals the limelight when it comes to reaping the benefits of anti-aging skincare, but what can be done to get our lashes looking youthful and full again? Leave it to Allergan, the creator of the blockbuster anti-aging treatment, Botox®, to launch a product to rejuvenate eyelashes.

LATISSE® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. On the market for almost ten years, it has quickly become the gold standard in eyelash rejuvenation and enhancement. Applied like a liquid eyeliner to the upper lash line each evening with sterile disposable applicators, clinical trials show patients note the following results:

  • Lengthening of lashes by week 4
  • Improvements in fullness and darkness by week 8
  • Enhanced results of condition, length, color and fullness seen by week 12
  • Full Dramatic results seen by week 16 (78% of patients notice significant improvement in all areas)

Latisse® can have some side effects in some patients. The most common is an itching sensation in the eyes and/or some redness. Other less common symptoms include eyelid skin darkening, irritation, dryness, and redness of the eyelids. Eyelid skin darkening is a result of increased pigment in the skin and occurs close to the area where Latisse® is applied. This coloration usually subsides within weeks of stopping the use of the product.

FACE Cosmetic Skincare also carries Alphaeon® Lash Serum for patients who wish to avoid any possible side effects when enhancing their lashes; especially those with sensitive eyes. This lightweight serum is fortified with diverse peptides to help stimulate hair growth. Alphaeon® contains high levels of biotin to encourage future growth and volume. It also features pumpkin seed extract, rich in fatty acids and essential minerals, which helps to nourish dry brittle lashes. This advanced lash serum is easy to apply and HAS NO SIDE EFFECTS, such as discoloration.

  • 80% of patients saw an improvement in overall lash appearance after eight weeks
  • 72% agreed their lashes appeared thicker, longer and more conditioned
  • 72% agreed their lashes appeared less sparse

If you want to fully maximize your lash treatment, truly bringing them back to the days of your youth – we suggest partnering Latisse® along with our Alphaeon® Lash Serum. We like to think of it as a “Shampoo & Conditioner” combination. Latisse® grows your lashes, making them longer, fuller and darker – while Alphaeon® Lash Serum conditions, hydrates and nourishes your lashes.
