FOR ANYONE even considering getting Botox injections from an unqualified practitioner, these pictures will make you reconsider.

A jury in the UK has been shown before-and-after photos of three woman who claim bogus Botox injections left them disfigured and “looking 50 years older.”

Marcelle King, of Poole, England, is one of the alleged victims who filed claims against Ozan Melin, who prosecutors allege has no medical background and was using a counterfeit solution for injections, The Daily Echo reported.

Ms King, 62, reportedly texted Mr Melin’s then-wife, Lisa Bolster, to complain about the procedure. She was told to use a wet cloth, but wound up in the hospital suffering from anaphylactic shock the next day, The Mirror Online reported.

A second woman, Jozette Sheppard, testified that a botched procedure led by Mr Melin failed the first time, and a second attempt left her unable to “eat, speak or smile,” the news outlet reported.

“During the evening it was like my head was on fire, really burning,” Ms Sheppard, 46, said, according to The Daily Echo. “It started swelling by my eyebrows and I had to lie down because I couldn’t open my eyes. When I woke up and couldn’t open my eyes, I screamed.”

Ms Sheppard said she had trouble moving her face for up to four months, and that Ms Bolster had assured her through a series of text messages that the affects would calm down.

“It sucks, it always goes down though,” Ms Bolster allegedly texted to Ms Sheppard.

A third complaint was filed by Carol Kingscott, who claimed the procedure left her looking “like a hamster,” and like she “had been punched.”

“One eyelid dropped completely and it was so sore I could barely open them,” Ms Kingscott, 57, told the court.

Mr Melin has denied the charges against him, while Ms Bolster pleaded not guilty to three counts of fraud and one of unauthorised use of a trademark in relation to a counterfeit substance marked “Botox” found in her freezer.
