Beauty centres warned against giving injections to customers

PUTRAJAYA: Beauty salons, spas and aesthetic clinics are barred from giving any kind of injection, including Botox and Vitamin C, to their customers or they risk being closed down.

Such a procedure can only be performed by medical practitioners, and those not medically certified to do so can be accused of masquerading as doctors, said Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.
“The public must realise the danger of getting injections from people who are not trained. So I advise the public to not just simply seek beauty services and put their lives at risk,” he said after attending the Cabinet meeting yesterday.
On April 11, the ministry conducted Ops Kosmetik that saw 66 beauty salons, spas, aesthetic clinics, and cosmetic product retailers and wholesalers checked.
Pharmaceutical products in the form of injections such as Botox, Vitamin C, glutathione and placenta worth RM780,000 were seized during the operation.
Dr Subramaniam said he has directed the National Pharmaceutical Bureau to closely monitor these business establishments.
“We don’t want products that contain dangerous substance such as mercury, hydroquinone and tretinoin be made available to consumers,” he said.
Between 2013 and April this year, 47 cosmetic products, mostly sold in the pasar ma­­lam and pop-up stalls, were taken off the ministry’s approved list after they were found to have been adulterated with prohibited substances.
Some 14,200 cosmetic products costing RM8.5mil that were sold without the authorities’ permission were seized from 2015 till last February.
Dr Subramaniam said his ministry, with help from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, was also monitoring sales of cosmetic products online.
