LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- A Nuevo Laredo stylist is suffering the consequences of vanity by injecting baby oil into his face leaving it permanently disfigured.
Hugo Hernández has changed dramatically from a series of beauty practices he would perform on himself using household products. He believed they would leave his skin flawless.
On one occasion, he injected himself with baby oil believing it would have the same effect as collagen.
Although he has consulted with other medical experts, those experts say the damage cannot be fixed but he still clings to hope.
He says the experience has left him with a responsibility to send a message to those who intend to fix their appearance. He advises them to first consult with the proper medical experts before deciding to do anything themselves.
