ADDICTION POTENTIAL?
DR. FREDRIC BRANDT
"We do have to tell a few people to come in less frequently because they don't really need it, and if they do it too often, they could become resistant. But with the new lower-protein formulations, resistance is rare — I've seen maybe four cases of it in my whole career."

DR. NICHOLAS V. PERRICONE
"I was just talking with a woman who lives on Botox and looks older than her years by a decade. I said, 'Why don't you go off this stuff' and she said, 'If I do, it's all gonna drop.' I said, 'Let it drop, start using topical antioxidants, and do some electrical stimulation to firm up those facial muscles.' She's considering it. I have about a 50 percent success rate talking people out of Botox."

THE COST
DR. FREDRIC BRANDT
BOTOX: national average is $435 per procedure about every four to six months.

DR. NICHOLAS V. PERRICONE
NO TOX: about $200 per month for his program of diet, supplements, and topicals.
