A woman in the US has been arrested by police officers after administering dangerous fake Botox treatments on two people.
Diana Marcela Cardenas-Gonzalez was taken into police custody after the patients developed cysts on their faces, NBC Miami reports.
The Colombia native performed the potentially dangerous anti-wrinkle procedure in her Miami home, despite being unlicensed.
According to the police report, the two women contacted Ms Cardenas-Gonzalez upon developing the facial growths. However, the Miramar resident recommended they met her to receive a facial massage.
The report said: "[Cardenas-Gonzalez] injected both victims about the face using a syringe which was alleged to contain Botox in exchange for US currency."
People contemplating receiving the cosmetic treatment are advised to check their practitioner is appropriately qualified by requesting to see official documentation.
Last year, doctors, dentists and nurses were invited to apply for registration in order to receive a certificate of approval, which informs patients of their credibility.
