Police are looking into a complaint against the much-publicised Dr Xeping’s Face Off services that claims to have the ability to make customers look a few decades younger.

“We have already interrogated one witness,” Pol Lt Colonel Jareuk Thongsikhao, an inquiry official at the Somdej Chao Phraya Police Station, said yesterday.

On Monday, the station received a complaint from Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Society of Thailand’s president Dr Cholatis Sinratchatanan, who said Dr Xeping is not even a physician.

He also pointed out that Face Off was not even a medical term, but an eye-catching word for advertising purposes.

Cholatis said such a catchy word could give false expectations to consumers.

“He should be charged with spreading false information via a computer system in a way that can cause damage to others,” he said.

Dr Xeping became famous after he reportedly provided services to a former singer.
