Once again 2018 seemed to be full of reports about the negative sides of cosmetic treatments. As hard as it is to hear negative reports about the profession you are passionate about, it must be reported.
One case that was particularly shocking was the man Ozan Melin who was convicted in May of two counts of GBH after injecting women with an “unknown and extremely dangerous substance” He claimed it to be Botox. In fact it was brought on the internet from China. He was jailed for 4 years.
The women he treated were left with swelling and burns. Long term they have been left with disfigurement and paralysis of varying degrees and with significant mental distress. The full article can be found here.
It was truly disgusting. The police described Melin was a sophisticated manipulator who targeted the women for financial gain.
There is positive news however. His prison sentence should serve as a warning to those who risk the health and wellbeing clients for financial gain. It also reminds us to be vigilant well-informed when it comes to looking at treatments and clinics.
