Thin Eyelashes

We all dream of having longer, fuller lashes, just like those we see in magazines and movies. Full, dark lashes are a staple of youth, and often one of the simplest ways to achieve younger looking eyes. When lashes are short and thin, aging concerns such as dark circles, lines and wrinkles become more pronounced. To solve this problem, women often turn to mascaras, falsies or eyelash extensions, but there is a way to realise natural, covetable lashes without these artificial, lash-damaging solutions.

Frequently asked questions

The Latisse solution is a topical prescription that you apply directly to the base of the eyelash where the lashes grow. The results are gradual, but by the end of a 16-week period, you will notice marked growth in your eyelashes. Most results are noticeable by the 8th-12th week of use. Results last as long as you continue using the treatment

Latisse™ (bimatoprost) is a topical prescription product from Allergan (the makers of Botox® and Juvederm®).

This product launched in Canada on November 15, 2010.

 

When your lashes are not as thick and full as you want, no amount of mascara can fix the problem. This is actually a medical condition called hypotrichosis, and is usually caused by genetics and the aging process. As women age, lashes become thinner, shorter and may even lose their dark color.

At first, makeup can fix the problem, but if the lashes get thin enough, even mascara will not help. In the past, women simply had to live with this as part of the aging process, but not anymore. Now, women struggling with thin or light lashes can turn to Latisse, the first and only FDA approved treatment for hypotrichosis. With the help of the team at LSG, you can see your lashes grow thick and long again!

While for some of us, lashes lacking vitality, fullness and depth of color are simply a genetically determined reality, there are also medical conditions and medications that can lead to thinning lashes. In many other cases, aging is the culprit. As our eyelash follicles age, we lose hair germ cells and fewer lashes are produced. The result? Thinner, shorter, and fairer lashes – exactly what we fight against every morning with eye makeup.

Causes

Despite how simple the symptoms may be, there are actually a variety of things that could cause your eyelashes to fall out. Here are some reasons your eyelashes could be thinning:

  • Hereditary Factors – Some genetic diseases such as cryptophthalmos and Ehlers–Danlos syndrome could cause your eyelashes to fall out.
  • Excessive Eye Rubbing – Harsh scrubbing when you remove makeup products or whenever you rub your eyes could be causing eyelashes to fall out.
  • Bad Beauty Habits – Leaving eye makeup or mascara on, or using heat products could damage eyelash hair follicles.
  • Allergies – An allergic reaction to beauty products and other things could causes eyelash loss.
  • Age – Eyelashes naturally thin as a part of the aging process.
  • Medical Conditions – A medical condition such as blepharitis, thyroid disorders, alopecia, inflammatory diseases, skin cancer, and many other diseases could cause eyelashes to thin.
  • Certain Medications – Some medications have eyelash thinning as a side effect like chemotherapy drugs.

Whether you want long, thick lashes or want them to stop thinning, we can help with products contributing to eyelash growth.

 

Madrosis is a term for eyelash and eyebrow loss. Eyelashes aren’t just important for beauty, but they protect the eyes from debris that can cause injury or infection. Eyelash thinning as we age is a completely normal phenomenon; a majority of adult women surveyed reported noticing significant changes in eyelash thickness over time. After all, healthy eyelashes falling and growing back about every 6 weeks is normal. However, when they begin to thin or fall out at a higher rate than normal, you might be concerned and maybe even a little embarrassed. A variety of factors can affect the health and fullness of your eyelashes.

While home remedies have taken on popularity, there are little to no studies confirming the effectiveness of such treatments. In some cases, it might even do more harm than good considering their minimal effectiveness versus the unknown side effects they could have on your body. It’s best to follow the medical advice of a dermatologist because they know what will or will not treat the disease. Here are some popular home remedies that you should be careful with:

  • Castor Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Aloe Vera
  • Green Tea
  • Vitamin E

While some over the counter (OTC) medications are effective enough to be given as prescriptions, other OTC medications have limited effects on disease. They might help for mild to moderate cases, but they aren’t usually effective on severe ones. If used incorrectly and without guidance, they might even prove to be ineffective and produce unforeseen side effects. However, a dermatologist can tell you whether or not these can be effective for you. Here are some OTC medications that have known to help

  • Anti-inflammatories – Relieves inflammation that causes eyelash thinning from diseases like blepharitis.
  • Minoxidil – It was originally used for high blood pressure. It helps blood flow to the hair follicles, increasing their size and hair shaft diameter. This helps hair grow and keep it growing for hair loss via alopecia.

Eyelash Analysis

We can evaluates the results of lash improvement treatments with numerical assessments and graphic visualizations.

  • Skin irregularities, which appear on the surface of the skin. Most are red or brown lesions like age spots, scars, freckles or blemishes. These irregularities can be improved with exfoliation to encourage skin cell turnover.
  • Brown spots, which indicate melanin concentrations on or below the skin. These brown spots are hyperpigmentation due to sun damage or melasma.
  • Wrinkles, which are creases, folds or furrows of the skin that increase over time and result from sun exposure, smoking or natural aging. Fine lines show as light green and deep wrinkles show as dark green lines.
  • Skin texture, which measures the smoothness of your skin by identifying valleys and hills. Raised areas — including blackheads, dead skin and pimples — show in yellow while indentions like fine lines, pores and open follicles show in blue.
  • Pores are the surface openings of sweat and oil gland ducts. VISIA distinguishes pores from spots based on their size. Clusters of pores may indicate that you have oily or acne-prone skin.
  • UV spots, which are the result of overexposure to sunlight.
  • Red areas/Vascular, which are broken or weak capillaries. This VISIA profile shows sub-surface vascular conditions like acne, rosacea or spider veins.
  • Porphyrins, or a build-up of natural oil and bacteria, can lead to acne.
