Wrinkle Fillers

An Argentine doctor was charged and sentenced to 18 months in prison for practicing without a US license and giving illegal injections for wrinkles.

He charged thousands of dollars for injections of substances consistent with industrial grade silicone, used to lubricate auto parts, as well as medical grade silicone which is used for some eye surgeries but is not approved as wrinkle filler.

His clients included Lionel Richie, Richie’s ex-wife Diane and Shawn King, the wife of CNN talk-show host Larry King, according to court papers.

Prosecutors say he gave the illegal injections at various places, including parties, where up to 30 wealthy clients sipped cocktails and were injected with silicone smuggled into the U.S.

He earned a total of US 1.6 Million from 2001 to 2004. (CBC)
