Best Locally Made Reason to Smile (2012)


Scottsdale could serve as the poster city for three things: bleached blond hair, bedazzled jeans, and plastic surgery. Which means we shouldn't be that surprised to find out the city with as many plastic surgeons as gas stations is also the home of Medicis, the pharmaceutical company behind one of the most popular family of injectable fillers for facial tissues. The company makes its corporate home in Scottsdale and brought the powers of Restylane from Sweden to the United States. The company reports the stuff has now been used in more than 15 million facial wrinkle and lip injections around the world. And to think, before this, we were pretty sure that Scottsdale's biggest seller was fake boobs. So don't worry about wrinkles; go ahead and smile. We've got you covered, er, injected.
