(WECT) - There is a new lunch-hour botox fix that can finally be quick and pain free.

"I really of hated to see people had pain from it. They're wincing," said plastic surgeon Dr. Marc Salzman.

Claudette Waggoner knows exactly the pain Dr. Salzman is referring to.  She said she was gripping the handles of the chair during her last visit.

Typically patients getting fillers get a numbing cream, but Waggnoer said it didn't always work.

When the numbing cream finally does kick it, Salzman said it could last hours.  That's why Slazman developed a better way.  He uses a coolant called Vapo-Coolant to relieve pain in the area.

"A vapo coolant replicates the effect of ice, but it's rapid cooling," said Dr. Salzman.

According to the plastic surgeon, the effect lasts only a few seconds, but long enough.

Dr. Salzman is expecting a big response from doctors who know they're losing clinets because of the pain.
