It’s been 15 years since Botox was introduced to the public and what was once considered a “fringe treatment” is now a multi-billion dollar industry.
A representative of the drug’s manufacturer was quoted as saying, “It can’t make a woman turning 40 look 21, but it can freeze her face to look 39 for a good 20 years.”
“Freeze her face?”
At $900 per treatment every 3 months, Botox seems to be a luxury for the wealthy more than a necessity for the rest of us, which is probably for the best–even though men are an emerging market for the treatments.
The other day, my daughter seemed to suggest I may need to consider it. Yeah, try to explain the concept of a “worry line” to an 8-year old.
“Dad, you have a dent in the middle of your forehead!”
Hmmm….I wonder if they offer payment plans.
