Shoppers heading to the International Plaza in Tampa for their retail fix may soon be able to enjoy a quick Botox treatment between shopping rounds, thanks to the opening of the Venus Mini Med Spa.
This small boutique is designed to ‘do for Botox what LensCrafters did for glasses’, according to Bill Clarke, owner of the Venus Mini Med Spa boutiques. The med-spa will be tucked inside the mall for anyone who wants to get Botox injections without the hassle of booking a consultation, or even making an appointment.
Venus Mini Med Spa will be accepting walk-ins throughout the day, and offering free consultations for patients who simply want to learn more about their options for wrinkle removal. According to Bill Clarke, the Botox treatment takes only about 10 minutes, while other fillers will take about 20 minutes. The med spa in Tampa will be offering Botox injections for $200 per treatment, along with competitively priced dermal fillers.
One of the Venus Mini Med Spa locations has already opened in the Westfield Southgate Mall in Sarasota, and the owner reports that this particular location attracts an average of 18 clients per day.

The recession has encouraged many consumers to forego pricey wrinkle-fighting procedures such as facelifts, laser skin resurfacing and skin tightening treatments in favor of quick and affordable treatments such as Botox and dermal filler injections. Boutique med spas and even day spas that are rolling out Botox and Latisse at affordable prices give budget-conscious consumers a chance to enjoy immediate results without the hefty pricetag.
The Venus Mini Med Spa is scheduled to open by the beginning of October 2009.
