"Latisse is a great product for growing eyelashes," said plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer of New York. "It has worked on every single person that I have prescribed it for. I think it would be more widely used if the price point was lower. For many women … it has become an essential part of their daily skin-care routine." Shafer said the year's biggest story was the introduction of Dysport injections as a competitor to Botox, which is made by Allergan. "It is nice to have another botulinum toxin type A product approved to compete with Botox Cosmetic," he said. "However, the name Dysport has not caught on and is generally referred to as 'The New Botox.' " "Also, it is marked as 'cheaper than Botox.' However, we are talking about 5 percent or less cheaper. What is a savings of $25 when you are spending $1000 or more? Not much of a savings." On the deaths in Argentina and Brazil, Shafer commented, "Why people leave the USA to have plastic surgery is beyond me. We have the highest trained and most experienced surgeons. When patients are properly cleared by their doctor for surgery and the procedure is performed in an accredited facility the procedures are very safe and effective."
