When it comes to cosmetic procedures, you always need to ensure you’re visiting a licensed professional.

This is something which is closely monitored in Dubai as a man was recently arrested for allegedly illegally administering Botox injections without a license.

Per The National, the individual reportedly worked for a medical consultancy company and was providing unlicensed cosmetic treatments in Deira.

Haifa Al Marzouqi, a senior prosecutor at Deira Prosecution, explained the police had worked in cooperation with the Dubai Health Authority to carry out a sting operation on the man.

Al Marzouqi explained a female officer posed as a potential customer for the man, who had told her she needed Botox injections in her forehead.

“He examined the woman’s face and told her that she needed a Botox injection in the forehead and asked for Dh4,700 for his service,” Al Marzouqi said.

Just as the individual was set to anaesthetise the woman’s face, police intervened.

“The defendant was endangering the lives of others by practising cosmetic surgery without a licence and offering consultations, as well as obtaining medical tools and injections without permission,” Al Marzouqi added.
