New York — Two Manhattan plastic surgeons have opened New York’s first Botox-only boutique that provides patients with injections in less than 30 minutes, reports news source Reuters Life.
Andrew Elkwood, M.D., and Michael Rose, M.D., opened SmoothMed this summer to make the service available for patients who want to get Botox injections but don’t want to wait to receive them.
According to the report, Dr. Elkwood says patients’ medical histories are reviewed before any treatment and all women are given a pregnancy test to ensure it is safe for them to receive the injections.
SmoothMed serves about 40 customers a day, of which about 60 percent are women. The quickie treatments cost $130 and up.
