LAST WEEK The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) warned the Irish public about the dangers of illegal Botox treatments carried out in Ireland. This comes after the prosecution and fining of a beauty salon in Dublin. The salon in question was fined €6,000 over the illegal treatments.

The salon was using a product which was not authorised by the watchdog and is not or should not be available on the Irish market. In addition to this the person carrying out the treatments was not qualified to do so.

This follows the conviction last year of another illegal provider who was fined €3,000.

The HPRA warned of the dangers which can arise from the use of illegal Botox practitioners; there can be serious side effects from unauthorised and unregulated product. Obviously any medical injection carries dangers when administered by a rouge practitioner.
