It was early in her training days that oculufacial surgeon Julie Woodward, MD, knew she had found her true calling. “Art always brought me so much joy. The idea of helping patients see better to also enjoy beautiful things in the world was always very exciting,” says Woodward, who is now the chief of oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery service at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC.
Woodward received her MD at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston, and completed her ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. It was here that hosted an art show and sold every last painting. After residency, Woodward did a fellowship in Oculo

PRODUCT: RevitaLash Advanced
Eyelash conditioners have become a mainstay in every woman's cosmetic arsenal. What woman doesn’t want longer, thicker lashes. To stay at the forefront of the trend, Athena Cosmetics has launched an enhanced lash product - RevitaLash Advanced ($98) - with a brand new look featuring their proprietary blend of functional cosmetic ingredients and a selection of peptides and botanicals.
Backed by clinical studies, RevitaLash Advanced promises to leave lashes even more lush and youthful looking. Clinical studies determined that more than 90 percent of subjects noted an improvement in the appearance of their eyelashes after eight weeks of product use and more than 92 percent said that their eyelashes appeared more lush and youthful. No adverse reactions were reported during the course of the study according to Athena. Plus, many customers report that use of RevitaLash has the added bonus of giving lashes a more youthful curl – known as the “curl effect.”
Founder Michael Brinkenhoff, M.D., an ophthalmologist, created the original RevitaLash Eyelash Conditioner as a gift for his wife whose lashes became sparse and fragile due to chemotherapy treatments during her recovery from breast cancer. That was five years ago, and the fifth year anniversary is being celebrated with the new Advanced formulation.
“Over the past four years, I have been working with a talented team of cosmetic chemists to develop a unique cosmetic eyelash beautification formula designed specifically to be the best in its class,” stated Dr. Brinkenhoff. "I am proud to announce that after extensive clinical testing performed by multiple independent laboratories, Athena Cosmetics is now launching our best cosmetic product ever: RevitaLash Advanced.
Like the original, RevitaLash Advanced is formulated to be used once-a-day, applied at bedtime to the base of the lashes. It is odorless and very easy to apply. Mascara can be worn as usual. Some RevitaLash users have reported a mild darkening of the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Not such a bad price to pay for lusher lashes, but if that discoloration bothers you, discontinue use. Since RevitaLash, when used properly, does not get in the eyes, there should be no risk of eye or iris discoloration.
