In the age of Botox parties, it’s tempting to get your forehead furrows dosed at the most convenient locale. But results do vary significantly, so it’s key to go to a pro—and it’s hard to come by appointments with Botox gurus Fred Brandt or Patricia Wexler. Howard Sobel’s top-notch cosmetic-surgery center combines a medical office with the luxe atmosphere of a spa ($500 per area treated). And you can get a facial first.
