PORTLAND, Ore. - A nurse who helped inject hundreds of patients with an illegal animal toxin instead of Botox was sentenced to one year in prison on Monday.
Cathryn Garcia was an assistant to Dr. Jerome Lentini, who ran two 'A Younger You' clinics, one in Tigard and another in Salem.
Garcia admitted she and Dr. Lentini lied to patients about their treatment, using a form of Botox that is not approved for humans.
The unapproved botulinum toxin is cheaper than the FDA-approved Botox, which is a registered trademark and the only type of botulinum toxin approved for wrinkle-smoothing treatment on humans.
