Hong Kong's Hospital Authority said the 46-year-old woman died of septic shock after receiving the treatment at a beauty clinic.
The treatment is being tested as a method to fight cancer but in this case it was used for cosmetic purposes.
The case has raised concerns about potentially risky medical treatments at the city's numerous clinics offering procedures which claim to enhance a person's appearance.
In light of the death, the city's health secretary promised to review regulations governing the clinics and other private medical facilities.
