No part of your body is exempt from getting older. In fact, even your eyebrows age!

During adolescence, most of us were learning how to tame our thick full eyebrows. While the trend for attractive eyebrows have changed over the decades, one thing remains, youthful eyebrows tend to be fuller and longer. Unfortunately, what we see as we age are eyebrows that become sparse and patchy.

The loss of hair color in the brows will also cause them to be coarser than they used to be.

Treating Under-Eye Bags With and Without Surgery

Patient Before and After Eye Area Treatment Beverly Hills CA
