Apparently, there is a rush on regional practices in the Washington D.C. area on politicians, celebs, high-society, and the media to get BOTOX done before next weeks inauguration.

From USA-Today:

Washington, D.C.-area cosmetic dermatologists, and skin experts in other major cities, say despite the sagging economy, requests for quickie cosmetic fixes, such as Botox and microdermabrasion, have picked up during the last few weeks as people pretty-up for inaugural fetes.

"We have been absolutely swamped since the election with people desiring rejuvenation procedures for the upcoming inauguration," says Washington, D.C., cosmetic dermatologist Tina Alster.

"My normal load for cosmetic procedures has doubled, except for hyaluronic acid fillers — Perlane and Restylane — which have almost tripled," reports cosmetic and laser surgeon Hema Sundaram, who runs two offices in the Washington, D.C., area.

I guess if you need you're skin cancer checked you're still SOL (see here for related post)in the beltway. So apparently, Democrats are not only more miserly in charitable contributions (see here), but they are more venal as well :)
