Botox is booming in a down economy

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Many mid-career executives are finding themselves out on the streets, and when they look for a new job -- in many cases -- they're competing against much younger applicants, and that's why many local plastic surgeons have been busy as of late.

Facelifts and similar enhancements require a lot of downtime, sometimes as much as a month. But for someone looking for an edge, in a job interview -- botox and restylne offer a quick fix.

A typical botox treatment runs between $200-300. Restylne and other fillers,  anywhere from $500-700.
