Faces manifest signals from the mind, which is why they smile when happy, frown when sad, and scrunch up when trying to contemplate a universe folding into itself. Ponder cosmological physics without wrinkling with today's Groupon: for $140, you get 20 units of Botox Cosmetic at Rosenblum Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach (a $240 value).
Helmed by Dr. Richard Rosenblum, chairman of plastic surgery at Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center, the trained staff at Rosenblum Plastic Surgery carefully coaxes intrusive lines and wrinkles from the face with noninvasive Botox injections. During the approximately 30-minute procedure, Neale Ford, an RN, administers the injections, which use protein to block neurological transmissions that cause the face to wrinkle when engaged in heated games of rock-paper-scissors. Patients can opt to uncurl the furrowed landscape of the forehead, which takes approximately 10-20 units, flatten the lines between the eyebrows, which takes approximately 20-27 units, or straighten the skin over the footprints of crow's-feet, which takes approximately 10-15 units per eye. Designed to last three to four months, the treatment also allows patients to immediately return to most light activities, such as typing, accounting, and blinking in Morse code.
Customers will meet with Dr. Rosenblum for a consultation to ensure that is it medically advisable for them to receive the treatment. The consultation will occur on the same visit as the procedure. Although rare, customers who are not candidates for the procedure will receive a full refund.
