Imagine getting your daily botox treatment without having to leave your car? A Florida plastic surgeon is doing just that for those who are looking for a quick facelift. Dr. Miami botox drive-thru has been giving folks a youthful glow in upscale Bal Harbour.
"The areas that we inject Botox are the upper face, exactly the parts of the face that aren't covered by the mask," Dr. Miami said in an interview with Reuters.
Though it isn't a "first-come, first-serve" operation, patients will have to sign up in advance and be ready to pay $600 if they want to see those frown lines disappear.
So far, the drive-thru Botox treatments have been a hit. A woman who was the eighth person to receive Dr. Miami's Botox treatment without leaving her car described the experience as "great, amazing, I loved it, and it was painless."
The idea came to Dr. Miami while he was waiting for a COVID-19 antibodies test in his car. Since then, he has been administering treatments of his own.

Some other business owners in the region haven't been so impressed with the Botox setup.
Tattoo shop owner Chico Cortez compares the service with getting tattooed, and while Dr. Miami is able to operate his drive-thru clinic, his shop still has to be closed.

While the novel coronavirus has caused many traditional businesses to close, some have been finding ways to bring revenue in, including serving cocktails to go or transforming their spaces into outdoor theaters.
Gov. DeSantis announced on Wednesday that tattoo parlors and other personal service businesses could come back as a part of phase 2 of state reopenings. However, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County were barred from making that transition.

The governor did include that these mayors can submit plans to him and the county governments in order to join the rest of the state in the new phase.
