Part y)ing shot
A little needle work can turn a dull
soiree into a face-saving event
RICH LOPEZ | Staff Writer
How's this for a Saturday evening: You head to a friend's soiree,
pick through the nibblies, grab a cocktail and then have someone
stab a needle into your face.
That may not sound like your typical fun weekend get-together,
but if there can be parties that peddle jewelry or give away swag
bags, why not one that leaves you looking a little refreshed —
even if it is with a shot?
Dr. John Proffitt and his team at Oak Lawn Dermatology have
begun offering this new service, mixing a little bit of pain with a
lot of pleasure.
As a glorified house call, it's a chance to both do shots and get
shots. Proffitt will come to your home with units of Xeomin (simi-
lar to Botox) and gladly inject those interested with a little touch-
up around the eyes. He's found the domestic setting, while fun
like any party, also has therapeutic advantages.
"The atmosphere;is very relaxed and people can get to know
me better," Proffitt says. "They can get comfortable if they are hesi-
tant, and can see their friends do it. The procedure is simple and
my syringes are tiny. Usually people have had it
done before at these parties."
The idea for in-home transformations came to
Proffitt when a patient was impressed with his re-
sults and thought his friends would be interested
in getting the procedure. Instead of convincing
them one at a time to make appointments, his
client had a party with Xeomin on the menu.
"It was like any typical party. I brought food,"
Proffitt says. "Usually I'll give a talk before to ex-
plain everything and people get interested and
watch others before them."

community for just over eight months, Proffitt knows how to
make an impression — even if it is putting a needle in your lace.
