Kimberly Finder, M.D. Asks: Are We Really In an Economic Recession?
Date:7/15/2008

Despite Bad Economy Botox Sales Are Booming

SAN ANTONIO, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- While some say that paying $4 for a gallon of gas or $4 for a cup of Starbuck's coffee is expensive, there are many who are willing to spend more for another liquid. In the last quarter, Botox sales jumped 13% to $315.5 million. With Botox sales on the rise, one would wonder if we are really in an economic recession or has looking good become a necessity?

A survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that despite the economic concerns the use of fillers and Botox are on the rise. Twenty-eight percent of the survey physicians said that their current use of fillers increased up to 30 percent, compared to six months ago and more than 40 percent of survey respondents stated that the number of Botox procedures also increased compared to six months ago.

Dr. Kimberly Finder, Director of The Face Place, agrees with the survey's findings as she has seen a similar rise within her own practice. "Despite what is going on in the economy, people are looking for ways to keep a youthful appearance not just for personal reasons but for their careers. Who wants to go to work or to an interview and look tired? Botox and fillers have the ability to take years off of your look without having to get an expensive face lift."

Recently published articles such as "Bad Economy Gives Botox a Lift" in Forbes Magazine and "The 3 Best and Worst Cosmetic Surgeries for Your Career" in U.S. News and World Reports discuss that individuals are looking for ways to boost their career and confidence through cosmetic procedures.

"In the past, cost was not a prominent part of the discussion with patients. Now, they are asking more specific questions about how much each procedure or item will cost. Fortunately, there are many ways that one can improve their look and confidence while not breaking the budget," states Finder.
