Now You Can Get Botox On Your Lunch Hour

Sneaking out at noon and using my hour lunch for shopping rather than eating (does this make me a fashiorexic?) is a regular habit. But now the so-called “medispa” or medical spa has arrived at the suburban mall near my office and in a spa-like setting, clients are getting chemical peels, laser hair removal, and even Botox injections.

Last year, Botox topped the list of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures done in the U.S., with more than 4.6 million wrinkle-fighting procedures performed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The popularity of Botox combined with the convenience of a walk-in location right in the mall is likely to push that record setting number even higher in 2008… but is that a good thing?


If you want all the benefits of Botox without the pain, check out a skin-firming creme like Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Eye Creme ($75) or MD Skincare's Hydra-Pure Antioxidant Firming Serum ($95). Both battle the age-telling fine lines and wrinkles, without the injections.
