A bride who wanted to look her best while walking down the aisle has been left with second degree burns after trying a fat-freezing treatment called ‘CoolSculpting’.

Telithia Ha, a high school teacher from Adelaide, decided to try the beauty treatment because she wanted to get into better shape ahead of her nuptials.

But the 27-year-old was instead left with a permanent scar to her stomach after her skin began to bubble from the fat-freezing treatment.

‘She [the beauty therapist] looked at me and said ”that’s perfectly normal, that will go away”. I looked at her and i said ”I’ve got blisters, it’s a second degree burn, I don’t think this is very normal”,’ Ms Ha told A Current Affair.

Ms Ha, who said one session on the stomach area can set you back $600, is now coping with the emotional toll of the botched beauty treatment.

‘For me it wasn’t even a consideration that I would get scarred because I thought she was trusted,’ she said.

‘When I got those scars, I was a lot more emotional than I expected to be. Just because that was another thing I had to deal with.

Mother-of-two Noor Gabriel is also facing a similar fate after suffering second degree burns to her face from another beauty treatment gone wrong.

Ms Gabriel, who speaks limited English, put her trust in a beauty therapist at the local shopping centre and underwent a skin lightening treatment called Hifu.

But four months after the treatment, her cheeks and chin remain scarred and she struggles to look at herself in the mirror.

‘I can’t go outside because everyone who sees me, ”what happened?” she said.

The morning after her treatment Ms Gabriel said her face was swollen. She then visited a GP, who told her she had suffered second degree burns.

The Australian Medical Association is calling for increased regulation of these sort of treatments amid an increase in horror stories.

Those seeking beauty treatments are urged to consult medical professionals first.

‘Have a talk to your doctor first and consider seeing a dermatologist, a cosmetic dermatologist, who you know has medical training,’ Dr Danielle McMullen said.

Last month, A Current Affair spoke to an MMA fighter who almost lost both her legs after she felt them catch fire during a muscle recovery treatment.

Athena Martinez from Sydney regularly undergoes cryotherapy sessions before her jiu jitsu competitions and decided to go to a different clinic for her treatment on November 26.

The athlete says she was left in the liquid nitrogen tank with temperatures of -140C for six minutes, which she claims is three minutes longer than usual.

Shocking images following the procedure show horrific burns to her lower legs and thighs.
