A Nightmare at A Beauty Spa

Remember our article on Karima Gordon, a 37-year-old woman who died as a result of illegal buttocks injections? Well, it seems that illegal plastic surgery procedures are inevitable—as noted in this next case.

South Florida resident Isabel Gonzalez met an unfortunate fate earlier this year. Gonzalez paid about $900 for “facial rejuvenation” vitamin injections, which weren’t approved by the Florida Drug Administration, at Viviana’s Body Secrets Spa. Soon after the treatment, her skin became infected, and thus, she was admitted into the hospital and stayed for about two months. Doctors believe her face may forever be deformed.

Spa owner Viviana Ayala, who wasn’t even a licensed massage therapist, was arrested last week and is facing charges on aggravated battery and practicing medicine without a license.

Haute MD’s network provides a list of and information on the top doctors, all of which are board-certified, in the nation. So, why would you sacrifice your health for a less-than-stellar procedure that can lead to permanent deformities and even death? It pays to get the best work done.
