Since the salon failed to secure her mother’s permission for the treatment, they called her grandmother who gave them the go-ahead.
On Christmas Eve, her mother Rhia Vikki West rushed her 14-year-old daughter, Cheyanne, to the hospital for urgent treatment.
Christmas in the hospital
The teenager was in the hospital on Christmas Eve with her mum, receiving treatments and pain killers, but was later sent home – however, her condition worsened overnight.
The teenager's throat soon began to bulge and her eyes were so swollen that she couldn't see anything.
She was taken back to the hospital on Christmas Day where her mother was told by the doctors that she was lucky to be alive.
The botched beauty treatment has brought blisters on her eyebrows and her hair has started to fall off, leaving the teen scared it will not grow back.

Her older siblings were down with COVID-19, while Cheyanne was being treated in the hospital, with both isolated in separate bedrooms.
