The eyes are the focus of interaction with others, so they should be engaging. The first FDA-approved treatment of its kind, LATISSE gives patients eyelashes that are naturally longer, thicker, and darker. LATISSE patients can sleep, swim, or exercise and still have beautifully accented eyes without the bother of mascara smudging or running. It is available by prescription from New Jersey board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Evan Sorokin. In addition to offering products and services such as LATISSE, Dr. Sorokin performs surgical and nonsurgical treatments to make his patients look naturally younger and beautiful.
How It Works@headingTag>
LATISSE is a topical solution that is applied to the base of the upper eyelashes. LATISSE has been found to enhance the eyelashes by enabling them to grow for a longer period of time and by increasing the number of eyelashes that grow at one time. Lashes reach greater lengths in greater numbers. Within about 4 weeks of use, enhanced eyelashes will begin to emerge. By 16 weeks, all eyelashes will have completed a growth cycle and will have reached their ultimate improvements.
LATISSE is convenient because it is performed once daily as part of a regular nighttime beauty routine. The drops are added to the special applicator and then the patient runs it along the base of the upper eyelashes, similar to applying eyeliner. It is not appropriate for use on the lower eyelashes.
"Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin always made himself available to answer any questions I had. His bedside manner was great, and he called me personally when I got home. - - I do not know where to begin.....I originally went for a breast augmentation, and ended up getting a Tummy Tuck because of how completely comfortable I was with Dr. Sorokin. He makes you feel so very important, and in no way does he pressure you or try to convince you one way or the other. His staff also is very friendly and answered all my questions before, during and after no matter how many times I called. I had did my research, and this office felt right for me. The day of my procedure I was nervous because I have a fear of going under but Alisha was very reassuring, she and Nurse Jenn were amazing. Well, I was surprised to have no pain when I woke up, I said to myself he uses the best pain meds, the ride home was pain free so I expected to be doubled over by the next day.....that was not the case. My pain level never went over a 2 and by the third day I was only taking Tylenol. This was MY experience, I know everyone's pain tolerance is different, but the worst thing you can do is watch YouTube testimonials, please don't make that mistake, they have you thinking their dying!!!! I never felt him taking the drain tube out when the time came. If anyone is thinking about having this procedure, this is the ABSOLUTE BEST PLACE to have this done. Dr. Sorokin is AMAZING( he has the softest hands ever) and so is his staff, they make you feel like family. I look FABULOUS and it's only been a couple weeks so I can't wait to see the "final look" I am beyond pleased with this journey, and couldn't ask for a better result, I got my pretty back. Also, he called me personally to check up on me the evening of my procedure, that's a Dr. that cares about his patients!!!!"- P. / RealSelf / Jul 17, 2016

"Dr. Sorokin is the best of the best! From my consultation to my 6 week check up, he was truly amazing each and every visit. Every question I had was answered in the office in great detail. Every silly question I asked via email was answered within 24 hours. Dr. Sorokin and the nursing staff are the best. They are so friendly, honest, and knowledgable. I researched many doctors and I am so happy I chose Dr. Sorokin. I love how I look and feel. I made the right decision- as I said above, they are the best of the best."- L.S. / Google / Jun 07, 2016
"VERY KIND"- Anonymous / UCompareHealthcare / May 17, 2016
"I had been researching breast augmentations in the Philadelphia area for months when I made an appointment with Dr. Sorokin. Him and his staff were incredible and made me feel very comfortable. His staff worked with me as I tried to decide on an implant size, and were very patient with me even when I changed my mind a few times. My surgery was a breeze and I recovered SO quickly. I am so satisfied with Dr. Sorokin and would recommend him to everyone!"- C.M. / Google / May 10, 2016
One bottle of LATISSE and 30 applicators costs $120. This may vary by pharmacy location.
Eye Color Changes?@headingTag>
There is no evidence to suggest that LATISSE can change the color of your irises. The only instance of this occurring was when the ingredients in LATISEE were used as eye drops to treat glaucoma. It is therefore considered a risk, but a very small risk. When used for eyelash enhancement, LATISSE is applied to the base of the lashes, and should not enter the eye in significant amounts.
As long as nightly treatments are continued, improvements to the eyelashes will remain. If use of LATISSE is discontinued, lashes will gradually return to their original condition.
Who Can't Use It?@headingTag>
Patients should read the ingredient list of LATISSE and make sure they are not allergic to any ingredients, especially bimotrprost. Patients should discuss all eye problems, including glaucoma, with Dr. Sorokin during the consultation.
