Did you know between the ages of 20 and 30 eyelashes decrease in thickness by 30%? LATISSE®, approved by the FDA since 2008, is a treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Eyelash hypotrichosis means having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved, science-based treatment to enhance eyelash prominence as measured by increases in length, thickness and darkness of eyelashes.
Studies show that eyelashes thin with age. However, in a clinical trial with the majority of participants age 35 and older, results show that eyelash fullness more than doubles after 16 weeks of treatment. Available only through a doctor, LATISSE® is a once-daily prescription treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes with a sterile, disposable applicator. LATISSE® users can expect to experience longer, fuller and darker eyelashes in as little as eight weeks, with full results in 16 weeks.

AminoGenesis™ products deliver amazing results targeting the most common signs of aging like forehead number elevens, crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles, dark under eye circles, sagging skin and loss of firmness. Amino acids are the building blocks of every structure in your skin. Essential skin proteins like collagen, elastin, lipids and cellular tissues are made from amino acids. In addition, amino acids perform innumerable other functions in your skin.
As people age, we start to lose these natural amino acids, leading to wrinkles and discoloration of the skin. After over a decade of research and testing, the original AminoGenesis™ formula was created. AminoGenesis™ purifies each of the 17 plant-derived amino acids necessary to make your skin healthy and youthful looking. These amino acids are then carefully blended to match the optimum composition of collagen, giving your skin all it needs to become healthy and radiant looking.
