Medical Spa Dangers

Imagine you're paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for cosmetic treatments that are supposed to make you look young and beautiful, but what if that treatment left you in pain?
That's what one Panhandle woman says happened to her, when she went to a so-called medical spa for a laser treatment.
52-year-old Jordan Miles of Gulf County says she went to a Panama City medical spa for laser treatments.
The plan was to remove sunspots from her back and chest.
But in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America", Miles says she ended up with second and third degree burns all over her chest and back.
"It looked like raw meat. I had horrendous blisters all over it," says Miles.
Miles isn't alone.
