How Can I Improve My Lashes?
Hair growth is like life; we cherish it, we nurture it, but it adheres to its own stubborn cycles. When eyelashes are healthy and flourishing, the follicles are in the anagen (active growth) phase. But if lashes are thin or receding, they are most likely in the telogen phase, during which the follicles are resting.
To encourage lashes to progress from the telogen to the anagen phase, physicians often recommend bimatoprost.  Bimatoprost has proven to treat a condition known as hypotrichosis, insufficient growth of the eyelashes. When applied to the delicate ridge of the eyelid, bimatoprost stimulates the follicles responsible for sprouting long, attractive lashes.
The Latisse Difference
Precision and subtly are the keys to proper eyelash maintenance. Latisse is formulated with exactly 0.03% bimatoprost to ensure safe and effective results.  The solution is stable enough to be administered at home, yet powerful enough to transform lashes from blah to ahh!
Latisse is an FDA-approved medication that can be used to treat eyelashes that are too short or sparse for your aesthetic goals. The product is easy to apply, and if used daily, it can increase the number of lashes, their thickness and fullness, the length, and even make them darker.
Benefits of Latisse
Instead of applying tacky, fake extensions on your eyelids, Latisse encourages the natural growth of your very own hair. The do-it-yourself process empowers recipients to define their own destiny. In addition to the obvious physical benefits of Latisse, there are a number of psychological rewards that go along with them. You can bat your eyelashes with confidence knowing that they move and impress according to your desires.
- See results in as few as 3-4 weeks
- Maintain luscious lashes for months at a time
- If you are dissatisfied, your lashes will return to their natural state when you stop using Latisse
- Apply Latisse from the comfort of home after getting a prescription from Dr. Arslanian
To experience the benefits of Latisse for yourself, contact our Atlanta area offices at your earliest convenience.
If you crave voluminous, vital lashes, then Latisse treatment may be ideal for you. Men and women with thin or fair eyelashes are prime candidates for this breakthrough procedure. You may not be eligible for Latisse if you have a macular disorder such as degeneration or edema. Please tell Dr. Arslanian about any swelling or inflammation that you have experienced in the past. He can determine your candidacy for Latisse during your comprehensive consultation.
Private Consultation in Atlanta
Eye contact is a powerful connection. Even when you rendezvous on a video chat, looking someone in the eye allows you to convey volumes of information without saying a word. Dr. Arslanian wants to invite you to connect, either virtually or safely in person, by calling (678) 894-9200 and scheduling an appointment.
During your consultation, Dr. Arslanian will assess the current density of your eyelashes. If Latisse is the best option for your enhancement, then he will proceed to the next stage. Dr. Arslanian will explain the specifics of Latisse application so that you can use it at home according to his careful instructions.
On the other hand, if Latisse is not the optimal solution to your cosmetic needs, Dr. Arslanian will discuss your other options. After all, communication is the first step towards improvement. In the spirit of providing great communication to our Atlanta community, we regularly update our blog. Feel free to read through our posts and bring any questions that may arise to your consultation.
“My initial goal for every patient is to create a beautiful, natural look, using the safest techniques I have learned… the rest is the icing on the cake!”Dr. Brian Arslanian
The Latisse process is so easy, you may be ready for your first application during your consultation. Please arrive for your appointment without eyeliner or eyeshadow. A clinician will cleanse the treatment area and demonstrate how to apply Latisse.
The Latisse Procedure
After your office visit, you will be ready to use Latisse from the convenience of your own home. The following steps offer a broad overview of how Latisse should be applied, but you will receive more detailed directions during your consultation.
- Carefully place one drop of Latisse solution on the custom applicator
- Gently coat the base of the upper eyelash with the aforementioned applicator
- Avoid getting Latisse in the eye; do not apply the serum to your lower lids
- If any surplus Latisse dribbles beyond the limits of the eyelid, skillfully dab it away
- Repeat the procedure for the other eyelash
In a matter of 3-4 weeks, you may begin to notice the resplendent rewards of Latisse treatment. The follicles along the ridge of the upper lids will progress to the growth stage of hair production. Lashes will be thicker, longer, and darker.
To extend the results of Latisse, you may want to continue treatment for up to three months. Please consult with Dr. Arslanian if you are not experiencing the benefits you expected, or if you plan to use the product for an even longer period of time.

Complementary and Alternative Procedures
Latisse is an incredible way to define your lashes and dazzle onlookers, but it is just one of the many treatments that Dr. Arslanian offers. Now that your eyelashes are enjoying lush, full majesty, you may want to explore the ways in which you can accentuate your Latisse benefits. For instance, if your eyelids are droopy or your under-eye region is puffy, blepharoplasty may be the perfect solution. Dr. Arslanian has perfected his approach to eyelid surgery to celebrate your natural appeal and lift your perspective in a subtle yet striking manner.
If sagging, lax skin affects more than just your eyelid region, consider the rewards of a facelift. By gently removing excess skin along the hairline, Dr. Arslanian will smooth away unwanted wrinkles and elevate your attractiveness. For patients who wish to concentrate their enhancement along the upper facial area, a brow lift might be just what the doctor ordered.
For less invasive solutions to facial wrinkles, Dr. Arslanian offers a full suite of dermal fillers. As the skin ages, it loses structural support from such essential proteins as collagen. An injectable filler will add volume to skin and bring a youthful vigor back to your expressions. Speaking of expressions, every emotion you register triggers muscular contractions. These contractions pull at the skin, causing fine lines and creases. To ease the tension of persistent facial muscles, experience the rewards of Botox Cosmetic.
From amazing lashes to comprehensive enhancement, Dr. Arslanian is your premier resource on the road to rejuvenation. Contact him today!
