DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Police are searching for two men who received more than $4,000 worth of Botox treatment at a medical spa Monday in downtown Los Angeles and then fled without paying.

Dr. Benny Hau told CBS2 the men came in Monday afternoon to Sculpt DTLA, located at 705 Olive St., and asked to receive Botox treatment.

One of the men was given Botox in his forehead and creases near his nose, while the other received a lip-filler procedure, Hau said. Neither asked for pricing prior to the procedure.

Both initially said they were scared of needles, but then they went ahead with the procedures and were satisfied with the work, Hau said. Nurse Natalie Hau told CBS2 that the men appeared a bit nervous after the procedures were done.

When the work was completed, one of the men said he had to use the bathroom. When he never came back, the other told a receptionist that he was going to check on his friend, but then pushed the receptionist out of the way and ran out of the office.

The spa was left with an unpaid bill of around $4,000.

The two were caught on the spa’s surveillance video, which was posted to the spa’s Facebook page. One of the suspects was described as black and in his late 20s, while the other was white and in his 30s.

Dr. Hau told Johnson that policies were being put in place to make sure this sort of theft doesn’t happen again.

Both men are being sought on grand theft charges. Los Angeles police are investigating. Anyone with information on their identities should contact LAPD.

    Weren’t they required to fill out paperwork with their medical history and provide insurance info and ID

    1. Insurance doesn’t cover Botox since it is a vanity procedure so it would be very easy for them to lie about their identity.
