For the last three years, I have been grafting certain concepts of Oriental philosophy and medicine onto my Occidental plastic surgical practice. Some of these chimeric treatments have really resonated with my patients, one especially in particular. This involves the simultaneous application of hot and cold jade stones during my administration of Botox ™(botulinum toxin type A.). Alternatively, this concept could also be used for injections of Dysport™ and Xeomen™, both new FDA approved paralytic substances for cosmetic use. I have coined Zen-Tox as a readily identifiable term describing the novel use of distraction from pain via temperature.
