Lau had visited Revival Medical & Aesthetics Centre for aesthetic treatment before returning for another beauty treatment in January 2019.

Her brother then received a call on 8 March 2019 informing him that his sister was in the A&E department of the hospital, and their family then reached the hospital at 4pm.

They were then told that Lau’s heart had stopped for a while, and she had little brain activity – she ultimately fell into a coma and was on life support for 5 days, before she died on 13 March 2019.

The 34-year-old Dr Chan is being accused of administering “ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)” to Lau through an intravenous injection, which is used to treat heavy metal poisoning and is a common component of skincare and cosmetic products.

Dr Chan had allegedly administered an unnecessarily high concentration of the dose too quickly, resulting in Lau developing EDTA toxicity, which in turn led to her cardiac arrest and death.

Chan is set to return to court on 7 November after being granted bail of $5,000.
