Renew Facial Plastic Surgery we love the lines of luxury products that we carry, and we always stress to our clients how important it is to follow up your treatments with diligent home care! One of the most important products you can own, whether you have our amazing treatments done or not, is SUNSCREEN! Sunscreen is an absolutely vital part of any skincare regimen, and will ensure your face and body are protected from the harsh rays of the sun!
EltaMD® sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free. All EltaMD lotion and cream sunscreens and UV Aero spray sunscreen are now recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as effective broad-spectrum sunscreens.
EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens provide safe, broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection. A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, and if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreses the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Ultraviolet, or UV rays, are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun. UVA (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. They cause skin aging and contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkling, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. UVB (burning) rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin. They cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders.
When wearing EltaMD sunscreens, the UVA and UVB rays reflect and scatter away from your skin, providing you protection from sunburn. Elta MD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and, if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.

Have you noticed your eyelashes getting thinner, shorter and lighter? Are your eyebrows thinning out as well? This condition is called hypotrichosis and be caused by aging. From the ages of 18 to 59, the changes to your lashes become more and more pronounced. The good news is that LATISSE®, a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, can help reverse this process and bring back fuller, thicker, darker lashes.
LATISSE has an interesting story about how it was discovered for cosmetic use. Allergan manufactures ophthalmic solutions, one of which is bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.03% that is FDA approved for use directly on an eye to treat glaucoma. Patients being treated for this condition were noticing that their eyelashes were growing longer. It was even more evident that something was going on when patients being treated for glaucoma in one eye noticed that their lashes on the treated eye were growing longer and fuller than the lashes on the non-treated eye. LATISSE was FDA approved in 2008 to be used as a topical application to the upper eyelid to stimulate eyelash growth.
Eyelashes grow in a three-phase cycle from the beginning of new growth to falling out. It is felt that LATISSE increases the percentage of hairs in the active growth cycle as well as extending the growth cycle. This means that more hairs are growing for an extended period of time before falling out at the end of the cycle. It has also been noticed that the hairs growing are darker and thicker as well as longer.
Though it may take up to 16 weeks of use to achieve the eyelash growth desired, most of our aesthetic patients see results much faster. Many patients have noticed that once they achieve the lash growth they desire, they can maintain the results by applying a smaller amount of LATISSE less often. If LATISSE is stopped for a period of time, new lashes will revert to the shorter growth cycle and go back to their original appearance. Continued use of LATISSE will maintain longer, darker, thicker lashes.
An average LATISSE user may only use 2-3 5ml kits in a year’s time which makes the cost more economical then eyelash extensions.
