Hair Removal Negligence Claims
Negligence does not have to happen in a hospital, doctor’s surgery, or care home to warrant a compensation claim. Lawyers at The Medical Negligence Experts routinely deal with claims involving other service providers. Including as the result of beauty treatments like hair removal. Hair removal compensation claims are growing in number, due in part to insufficient regulation of the beauty industry.
What is Hair Removal Negligence?
Hair removal negligence can include:
- Burns from hot wax or lasers.
- Changes in skin pigmentation or texture.
- Eye damage from inadequate eye protection when using lasers.
Before carrying out any treatment, a therapist should check that their patient does not have any skin conditions or is on any medication which may cause undue sensitivity to the treatment. For example, eczema and psoriasis can react badly with wax, leading to infection and scarring. Excessive body hair in women may have an underlying medical cause meaning treatment is unsuccessful.
Not all ineffective or undesirable outcomes from hair removal treatment involve negligence, however, if the following steps did not take place, and the treatment caused damage or excessive pain, a client may have a viable case.
Was the practitioner licensed to carry out the treatment?
- Did they do a patch test?
- Is the equipment in good working order, and did they use it correctly?
- Was the patient fully informed of potential risks and side effects before agreeing to the treatment?
- Did the practitioner falsify their qualifications?
A woman successfully claimed compensation after an untrained beautician used the laser on too high a setting when removing facial hair. The client suffered significant pain from burns and blistering. Her GP diagnosed first degree burns, and there is the potential her scarring is permanent.
Other signs of negligence include offering heavily discounted incentive to proceed with the treatment if you show signs of doubt about having it done, rushing you into a decision, and being misleading about the potential results.
