#1 Microneedle beauty too good to be true08-16-2011, 06:03 PMThe latest beauty craze sweeping Hong Kong is the Microneedle Therapy System, which involves massaging the face with a needle-studded roller.
The Hong Kong Consumer Council has issued a warning to users of the device, stating there is no scientific evidence to prove its effectiveness and warning that the device is potentially lethal.
"It is unwise to risk your life for a prettier appearance," Consumer Council publicity and community relations member Philip Leung Kwong-hon told the South China Morning Post.
Users of the Microneedle Therapy System are exposing themselves to a high risk of infection of bacteria, fungi and viruses on the needles, including HIV and hepatitis. The Consumer Council advises that soaking the device in hot water or rinsing it in medical disinfectants is not enough to sterilize the device.
Imagine that, rolling needles over your face is bad for you.

In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.
