New York City dermatologist Lisa Airan, MD thinks the New York Botox business may actually be benefiting from the economic blues, telling CBS News that "she's never been busier."

Dr. Airan's convinced that people are not going to stop coloring their hair because of the economy downturn. The reported asked her, " Even if they have to scrimp somewhere else, you think they'll still come in for Botox?"

She then said, "if it's a choice between the newest luxury handbag or looking as good as you can, i think people are always going to choose looking as good as they can."

The CBS News story closed brilliantly with this observation:

"So even though people may be struggling in this economy, you may not see them frowning about it."
