"Shocking," "disturbing," "outrageous," and "dangerous" are just some of things that come to mind for The Doctors after seeing Martina's dramatic transformation.

They explain that she has achieved her skin color change through a series of melanotan injections and spending time in a tanning bed. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra warns that these injections are illegal and could pose serious health risks, which include nausea, vomiting, and can harm your kidneys and liver.

Though this product is illegal, we were able to order melanotan II online, something that is very concerning to The Doctors.

ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares his takeaway from this story, "Just because you can get something and just because you have a desire for darker skin tone -- do not use these products! I hope she stops doing this because she could potentially kill herself."
