REDDING, Cal. – A Northern California woman is facing felony charges for pretending she was a medical professional and administering Botox, along with other treatments. That’s according to the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office.
The DA says Susan Ann Tancreto posed as a nurse and provided Botox treatments at a Redding spa, as well as other locations. Botox is a prescription and officials say that Tancreto did not have a nurse’s or doctor’s license. The DA’s Office says some of her victims are suffering severe injuries, including some that need long-term treatment.
Area doctor Larry Richard Pyle M.D. is also charged with Aiding or Abetting. The DA says Pyle was selling the Botox to Tancreto.
