In a world where people are increasingly taking more pride in their appearance, many often turn to beauty treatments. Beauty treatments can range from everyday luxuries such as a face mask or relaxing bath. However, some people take beauty treatments to the extreme with such treatments as Botox injections.
What are the health implications of a beauty treatment gone wrong?
As the sole function of beauty products is to be applied to the skin and other areas of the body such as hair, a faulty product or treatment could have serious and lasting consequences. A treatment could trigger a severe allergic reaction, causing the skin to break out in a rash or it could leave permanent scarring of the skin. Other treatments can cause loss of hair or even physical disfigurement. Stories will often surface in the media of people who have sought a routine beauty treatment that has gone horribly wrong, leaving them with permanent defects. Perhaps the most prominent example is that of Leslie Ash who sought to have Collagen implants her in lips. A reaction to the Collagen caused severe and permanent swelling of her facial features.
