There are more charges and another defendant in connection to a botched Botox scam with an estimated 100 victims.
49-year-old Graciela Leon is the owner and operator of “By Grace” Spa in Mission. She now faces charges of practicing without a license.
Investigators say Leon allowed Nohemi Gonzalez to work at the spa. Gonzalez is accused of injecting liquid silicone into clients masking it as if it were Botox.
Leon turned herself in to authorities and confessed to have accepted money for her participation.
“This is a message for all those business owners,” explains Homer Jasso, Hidalgo county justice of the peace.
Leon was issued a 75-thousand dollar bond.
