With so many lash serums on the market today, it's truly difficult to determine the difference between all of them. Some are designed for “Conditioning”, some for “Length” only, and yet others ( the $20 brands you see on Amazon) really do nothing at all! Long Lashing Complex addresses Cleansing, Conditioning, Strength, Volume and Length in a simple to use once a day application.

MarkusScottCosmeceuticals approach to lash care stems from the same care that you would put into your hair and scalp everyday. You cleanse your hair and treat it with nourishing ingredients to protect and provide you healthy and lustrous locks that everybody will notice. Long Lashing Complex is designed to treat your lashes and brows with the same care... but in only one step with ingredients that say “We Care”.

Long Lashing Complex is the industry first and only that uses Colloidal Silver Enhanced Aqua rather than just water alone. Why is this important? Colloidal Silver is a strong antibacterial and cleanser that also doesn’t interfere with lash extension glues. How many of us can cleanse our lash line efficiently? The build up of bacterium caught between the lashes starves and weakens our lash line health and there by resulting in stress to our follicles which causes our lashes and extensions to fall out! Who couldn’t benefit from a cleaner lash line? Another added bonus Colloidal Silver offers is less worry about bacteria building up in your bottle from daily use and exposure.

The second step to optimal lashes and brows is our unique delivery of actives and peptides. Our peptide complex contains no ingredients that have any reported sensitivities, even the most sensitive girl in the room can use our formula. MarkusScottCosmeceuticals not only uses the most active peptides in the lash and brow market... but we choose a delivery that allows you to get the most optimal benefits from the peptides. Once again MarkusScottCosmeceuticals choose to go alone in introducing an ingredient nobody else is using... Caffeine! Caffeine acts as a stimulant and there by increases blood flow to the target area and also allows better absorption of the peptides.

Better delivery of peptides = Better growth and volume

The last step in our quest for making the absolute best lash/brow health and growth formula is adding beneficial vitamins and conditioners that cause no irritations. When you apply Long Lashing Complex to your lash line the small particles of the peptides and actives are absorbed quickly to the target area... but as you blink the larger particles of the conditioners vitamin e, castor oil, panthenol, hydrolyzed silk and hyaluronic acid work down the lashes providing lustre, shine and protection. No more need too worry about the damages from harsh cleansing, using mascara, lash extensions and curling can do.

Conditioned lashes = Thicker and darker lashes

We can proudly say Long Lashing Complex not only competes with the $100 lash serums... but in our humble opinion... we feel we’re doing a little more ;)


The quest for beauty has many choices for the consumer to choose from which can make your decision quite difficult. Two of the most widely used procedures are Medical Micro-Needling and Botox. How are they similar? How are they different? Which is the best choice for me? Although I don't use Botox, or even offer it as a treatment... I've seen the benefits it can offer some individuals.

Botox is a popular anti-wrinkle treatment that is very effective in smoothing the appearance of deep lines and furrows. This is achieved by injecting the underlying muscle, partially paralyzing it. The injection contains neurotoxin botulinum toxin which comes from a bacterium that restricts the muscle mobility that creates the most common frown lines and crow's feet. Botox can noticeably reduce the effect of wrinkles within just 24 hours, but it will slowly diminish in 3-6 months.

I've been offering Medical Micro-Needling Treatments for more than 12 years for both scalp and face. Micro-Needling is natural, no injections and like Botox no downtime, making it a widely recognized effective treatment for anti-aging. The process involves tiny needles (read pain management with CBD) that create microscopic punctures that close almost immediately. The body then works to repair these mini wounds from the inside/out. Newly formed capillaries increase blood flow, and result in collagen, elastin and melanin creation. You will have improved texture, tone and structure to your skin. There is virtually no risk of infection or scarring from the procedure. Results usually unfold over a period of 2 weeks to 3 month after the procedure and will continue improving for many months after albeit at a much slower rate.

Depending on your needs you may choose one or both, using Medical Microneedling to improve the surface, tone and deeper condition of the skin health, with Botox injections to help improve deeper furrows and lines immediately. As complimentary treatments both Botox and micro-needling can help you reach your anti-aging goals and over time you'll find the space between Botox treatments will get longer. Both are safe and effective for patients of all skin types.

I've been delivering medical microneedling treatments for hair restoration and skin rejuvenation for over 12 years... although my technique has evolved over the years... the "pain factor" has not for my clients and sometimes a procedure ends up in a hysterical game of "chase the client" on the treatment table!

My views on pain management got changed over the past year from a few lovely ladies who's "self medication" techniques turned a needling treatment in to a well... comfortable process. I had to find out exactly what they were doing! CBD was their secret weapon and truly opened my eyes of the amazing benefits of this wonderful cannabinoid.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in cannabis ( marijuana and hemp) plants. CBD doesn’t cause the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis. That feeling is caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a different type of cannabinoid.

Some people with chronic pain use topical and ingested CBD products, in particular CBD oil, to manage their symptoms. CBD oil may reduce:

- pain

- inflammation

- overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions

- anxiety

The research on CBD products and pain management has been promising.

CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on medications, such as opioids, that can be habit-forming and cause more side effects. However, more research is needed to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil and other products.

I've tried this myself with an oil containing CBD carried in MCT oil and have to admit it certainly took "the edge" off the procedure... so much so I wound up over-treating my poor little epidermis and had track marks left on my face for several days :( But I will never do a treatment on myself without this magical cannabinoid anymore.

I realize this may not be for everyone... and much further research needs to be established before all the mysteries of marijuana and its' major and minor cannabinoids are revealed.
