Woman Dies From Fake Botox Injections
It was just discovered that the administration
of fake Botox injections was the cause of death of a Salinas, CA woman who
died several months ago. The deceased woman had received fake Botox
injections from her hairstylist, who was also an unlicensed practitioner.
The hairstylist, Martha Vasquez, 39, has since been arrested and is
awaiting possible manslaughter charges.
Authorities believe Vasquez advertised the fake Botox injections to
customers who were seeing her for haircuts, and administered the injections
at her clients' homes.
Botox injections are one of the most popular and commonly administered
cosmetic treatments. Thousands of people are injected with Botox everyday
to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Despite the fact that Botox
injections have become so widely available and treatments are now subject
to price wars, what happened in California confirms that consumers of Botox
need to take precautions.
