It is easier to get a botox treatment, than it is to get a mole or skin cancer examined by a dermatologist (skin doctor) revealed by a recent research survey in US.
The survey report published in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology this month.
Researchers found that on average, patients had to wait 8 days for a botox treatment and 26 days for a mole (kind of skin cancer) examination by a dermatologist.
?The difference in wait times between medical dermatology and cosmetic dermatology patients is clearly real,? said Dr. Jack S. Resneck Jr., the lead author of the study and an assistant dermatology professor at the medical school of the University of California, San Francisco.
The study was conducted in 12 different cities across the United States.
