Infusion Of Active Substances With Micro-Needling

Creating Procedural Safety By Dr. Andrew R. Christie

Here is a snippet from the article:

Whilst the moral of these stories may appear to be “watch what you inject into the skin”, the reality is much more complex with far greater consequences to be considered.

When Things Go Wrong

All too frequently we come across industry ‘disaster stories’ where a patient’s face or body has been injected with some product which quite simply was not designed for that purpose. Consider Rajee Narinesingh, whose face was injected with cement and tyre sealant. What resulted from a black market ‘plumping party’ she had attended in 2005 were heavy, rock-hard, dried cement nodules permanently embedded in her cheeks.


Monique Allen had over 12 litres of liquid plastic and silicone injected into her body in around 75 backstreet operations. Allen claimed, “the doctor would numb you then attach a funnel to whichever part of your body you wanted, then screw a vial of silicone on and pump it in”. Over the years, the silicone has migrated around her body, rendering her permanently disabled, with patches of disfiguring skin necrosis and ongoing infections.


Such scenarios, however, are not just limited to the lower socio-economic or blackmarkets, consider Daniel Tomas Fuente, an unlicensed medical practitioner in the USA (though a doctor in his native Argentina) who was operating an injectables clinic out of the bathroom of Lionel Richie’s then wife. His injection of unapproved “anti-wrinkle” cocktails into his celebrity clientele, resulted in a bevy of complications, including nodules affecting facial movement and what one patient described as permanent “holes” in their face around the site of injection. Dr Daniel’s patient’s included Diane Richie, Priscilla Presley and Shawn King (the wife of Larry King).


The relationship between injections and micro-needling substances into the skin is far closer than many of us may think....
