With Covid-19 keeping individuals at home, plastic surgeons across the country have seen a rise in patients. More specifically, one New York dermatologist Michele Green, MD notes that the largest number of patients and most popular visits have been for BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) and dermal fillers. Experts are not surprised by the increased interest in cosmetic procedures as many people are spending more time staring at themselves through Zoom® and FaceTime® screens. Additionally, many patients also attribute the stress of the pandemic to their aging. Lastly, stay at home orders have provided an opportunity for individuals who have been thinking about getting a treatment to finally make an appointment due to available recovery time and the ability to wear a mask to hide any post-procedure side effects. If you’ve been thinking about getting BOTOX® or any other cosmetic procedure, contact our office today and schedule your consultation with Dr. J. J. Wendel to learn more about your options.
