Are your eyelashes thinning? As we get older, our lashes may lose length and volume, growing brittle and sparse. Fortunately, there is a solution. A daily application of ALPHAEON Beauty Eyelash Serum will hydrate, condition and strengthen your lashes. With no discoloration or other side effects, this professional treatment will result in longer and fuller eyelashes within weeks!
Effective for adults of all ages and skin types, ALPHAEON Beauty Eyelash Serum is supplied with an applicator brush, which allows you to quickly and easily glide the product at the base of your upper eyelids. A recent eight-week case study offered compelling results:
- 80% of women in the study saw an improvement in overall lash appearance.
- 72% agreed that their lashes appeared less sparse.
- 72% agreed their lashes appeared thicker, longer and more conditioned.
The lightweight lash serum is fortified with peptides to help stimulate hair growth. It is also infused with biotin to encourage growth and prevent lashes from becoming dry and losing volume. Pumpkin seed extract, which is rich in fatty acids and essential minerals, helps to nourish your skin, while sodium hyaluronate, a form of hyaluronic acid, helps to condition and moisturize.

Have your cheeks seen better days? Whether you’re young or elderly, a loss of volume can sag your cheeks and age your face. If you would like to tighten your face and lift your cheeks without the long recovery time and potential complications of surgery, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the solution for you!
The first and only filler to correct age-related volume loss and poorly-defined cheekbones in the midface for up to two years, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is FDA-approved and effective for adults over the age of 21. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, it can be shaped into the desired contour after injection.
After an application of specially-formulated numbing cream 15-20 minutes before treatment, a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC specialist will inject gel into your cheeks with very small needles. The actual injection only takes a few minutes and your specialist will complete the procedure by gently massaging your face to ensure the gel is properly distributed across the treatment area. The entire procedure is virtually painless due to the numbing cream and the tiny needles. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is also equipped with lidocaine to enhance patient comfort.
Results are immediate and can last up to two years! Most patients can resume normal activities right after treatment and any minor side effects (slight bruising and swelling) can be easily concealed with makeup.
Just about anyone with volume loss in their midface or poorly defined cheekbones is a candidate for treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Younger patients in their 30s and 40s have better skin elasticity and often notice a more dramatic restoration of their facial volume, while older patients typically need more filler to reach the same level of correction. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be paired with other facial injections and skin resurfacing treatments to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.
If you are looking to roll back the years with a quick and easy procedure on your cheeks that can last up to two years, schedule a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today!

Looking to smooth those unsightly wrinkles and add fullness to your lips? Try a quick and easy Restylane treatment! FDA-approved for patients over the age of 21, Restylane fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This includes lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth and lines from your mouth to your chin. In addition to smoothing your face, Restylane can be used for lip enhancement.
After an application of specially-formulated numbing cream 15-20 minutes before treatment, a Restylane specialist will inject small amounts of crystal clear Restylane gel into your face using tiny needles. The actual injection only takes a few minutes and your specialist will complete the procedure by gently massaging your face to ensure the gel is properly distributed across the treatment area. The entire procedure is virtually painless due to the numbing cream and the small size of the needles.
Restylane is equipped with lidocaine and hyaluronic acid (HA) to enhance patient comfort and shaping into the desired contour after injection. Restylane can treat a wide variety of skin problems, including:
- Nose-to-Mouth Lines (Nasolabial Fold)
- Mouth-to-Chin Lines (Melomental Fold)
- Lines Above the Upper Lip
- Frown Lines
- Adding Lip Volume & Definition
- Restoring Cheek & Cheekbone Volume
- Wrinkles/Lines Under the Eyes
While results are immediate, they are oftentimes even more dramatic after a few days as the Restylane gel settles into its final shape. Depending on your treatment area, Restylane may last up to a year!
To cut down on swelling and bruising, avoid exercise (besides walking) for 24 hours after treatment and take Tylenol instead of Aspirin, Exedrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve or Advil.
Restylane can also be combined with other facial injections and skin resurfacing treatments to achieve even better results. What are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment at Envy Skin Clinic today to get rid of those pesky wrinkles and look (and feel) your best!

Some morning tips….
Eat some protein.
Trade your bagel or piece of fruit for eggs or Greek yogurt . A recent study found that eating a high-protein breakfast helped women stay fuller longer and avoid overeating later in the day.
You know you need sun protection daily (even when it’s cloudy), but do you realize that the SPF in your makeup probably isn’t cutting it? Instead, double up on protection by using an SPF moisturizer under your foundation or powder. And don’t forget your lips, neck, backs of hands and eye area — all of those spots are exposed to aging UV rays just as much as your face.
Drink a big glass of water.
Dehydration not only causes you to feel terrible, it messes with the way your skin looks — and after a night’s rest, your body needs fluids. Whether or not, starting the day with a tall glass of water can’t hurt.
Move your body.
Studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning sleep better at night. And the beauty benefits of sleep are very real. Shift your schedule to make a morning workout easier to manage.
Mist your face.
Keep a can of mineral water mist in your fridge and give your face a cool spritz first thing. The chilly mist will help bring down morning puffiness and leave you feeling bright and awake. A cold cloth on your face is a nice alternative.
Drink green tea.
If you need an A.M. caffeine boost, green tea is the best way to get it. The drink is packed with flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, which have been shown to slow cell damage (read: aging) and are even linked to a reduced risk of certain cancers. Can’t bear to give up your coffee (us either)? No need; coffee contains antioxidants, too and has also been shown to speed up metabolism.
