Women seek payout over failed miracle wrinkle treatment
Ninety women who paid thousands of pounds for a miracle cure for wrinkles are seeking compensation after claims the procedure didnt work.
The disgruntled women claim the clinics, including several in Harley Street, encouraged them to have the collagen-based treatment, but it did nothing to diminish the signs of ageing.
An estimated 7,000 women signed up for the procedure, which involved removing ageing skin cells, re-growing them, and then re-injecting them.
Each litigant is seeking a payout of at least £5,000, potentially making this the most expensive cosmetic surgery lawsuit in the UK.
The Californian-based manufacturers of the treatment, Isolagen, used actress, Emma Samms, from the hit TV show Dynasty, to promote the product, which they took off the market in Britain last March.
