Instead of seeking medical advice, Hong Paek Cheng decided to go with what Relatives said
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2012 -- A hair salon owner in Banting suffered severe acne from a facial treatment, which caused severe and painful acne and swelling of the face.
Hong Paek Cheng, 31, said the effects have caused her both embarrassment as well as pain.
“It is a torture. Whenever I go out now, I don't know how to face people. And it's very painful, too,” Hong said. She added, “It was supposed to be a normal treatment to remove blackheads but I ended up with these problems.”
Hong had sought out the treatment through a recommendation from her relatives. She began to notice acne after the second visit.
“The beautician told me these were normal symptoms and to continue using the products they recommended,” she stated at the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department.
Following the eighth session, the acne was so severe that Hong sought out a skin specialist. She said she was informed by the specialist that treatment would cost nearly RM8, 000. She was also informed there was possibility of permanent scarring.
Hong was told by the beauty center that her acne was a result of a hormone imbalance. Hong claimed she was not warned of any possible side effects before beginning treatment.
The beauty center refused reimbursement following the unfortunate results of the treatment, and Hong has since lodged a complaint with the police.
Department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong advises other women to seek second opinions before partaking in beauty treatments.
“It’s easy to get carried away with advertisements offering the chance to look beautiful. Please see a specialist first before trying any new products,” he said.
