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.
"From the moment I met Dr.Sorakin I knew I wanted him to do my breast augmentation surgery! He is very patient and understanding, answering all questions and concerns. I went to several other doctor consults and was concerned I would never have full "round" breasts, but Dr.Sorakin assured me those results would be possible and I would be in the best care. After surgery I was in very little pain and back to work in 4 days ! I am extremely happy with my results ! They look better than I ever would have imagined! I would definitely recommend Dr.Sorakin!!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 30, 2016
"It has been about four months since I got my BA, and I could not be happier!!! They are absolutely perfect. Dr Sorokin and his team are absolutely amazing. From consultation to my very last post op visit I could not have asked for more out of them. They were precise, and patient with me since I was such a scardy cat! Cannot wait until summer thanks to Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery! :)"- C.D. / Google / Apr 12, 2016
"the best doctor, staff, and experience! Cherry Hill, NJ - I just recently had a breast augmentation with Dr. Sorokin of Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery and this is my first real surgery...Let me say, it was the very best experience from beginning to end and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go to anyone other than Dr. Sorokin. Both him and his staff were lovely, warm, inviting, encouraging and excited for me - which is exactly how one should feel when going in for an elective procedure! There aren't enough positive things to say about his practice! He even called to check on me afterwards, which I appreciated, and is very communicative when needing to ask questions/advice, etc. All his girls there are wonderful and made me feel so at ease before my surgery, and after. I still love my card and cup I received at my follow-up - that personal touch makes a world of difference for me! There isn't anyone else I would go to for any future procedures and I've been recommending him to everyone. #teamsorokin haha!"- M. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2016
"Dr. Sorokin and his entire staff provided me with excellent medical treatment before, during and after my surgery. I am very pleased with my results and would recommend him to anyone considering having plastic surgery. Dr Sorokin is highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable. His care of his patients makes him unlike any doctor I've ever been to. The entire staff at his practice also needs to be recognized for being so caring and attentive. You won't find a more qualified practice!!!"- T.R. / Google / Apr 04, 2016
"The most important thing for me is Doctor-Patient relationship. Dr. Sorokin is the most available doctor I have ever met. You are always able to communicate with him and he is always quick to answer any questions that you may have even when you are not in his office! He gets back to you immediately. He made me feel at ease from the moment I met him assuring me that I could achieve the result I was looking for with no problem. Other surgeons had made me nervous and question whether or not I could actually ever get my desired outcome. Dr. Sorokin helped me feel better about myself and helped me achieve my desired look. I can't thank him enough for his patience (I ask a lot of questions), his knowledge, and his kindness. He speaks to you and explains things to you in human terms. If you're looking for a quality doctor that can make you feel beautiful again, he's the one. The girls that work in the office are also one of a kind. Very knowledgable and professional. Great staff.

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.
