A woman has been charged with using poison to endanger life after a female customer suffered a cardiac arrest when having a "medical procedure" at a Sydney beauty salon.
Paramedics were called to the Chippendale shop yesterday to treat a woman suffering from a medical episode.
The 35-year-old woman was rushed to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a critical condition.
Today, police charged a 33-year-old woman with reckless grievous bodily harm and using poison to endanger life.
She was refused bail and is due to appear in Central Local Court later today.
According to its website, the Medi Beauty Laser and Contour Clinic offers state- of-the-art beauty services based on the latest medical technologies.
"We can assure you that all of our treatments and equipment meet the highest industry standards and conform to all required legislation," the website states.
"All treatment facilities, materials, resources and products meet the stringent requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and Medicines Australia."
The group was founded in Melbourne in 2012 where there are three clinics, and only recently opened in Sydney at the Central Park complex near Broadway.
At least four staff members from the clinic were interviewed by police after the incident, Nine News reported.
