Beauty Treatment Compensation Claims

We undergo beauty treatments in order to relax and unwind or sometimes as a treat to make ourselves look and feel good. While most of us will be provided with a professional standard of treatment and care, a lack of regulation in the beauty industry means treatment injuries are not uncommon. The injuries can result from lack of training or qualifications, faulty equipment or failing to take the necessary precautions.

Treatment injuries can be painful and distressing and, in the most severe cases leave people with life changing disfigurement or scarring. Some examples of the most common beauty treatment injuries are:

  • Burns from waxing
  • Laser treatment injuries
  • Injuries from lip fillers
  • Chemical peel burns
  • Eye damage from lash treatments
  • Burns from semi permanent make-up
  • Burns and rashes from tanning
  • Infection from lack of sterilisation or hygiene

How to avoid

Sometimes there is no way to prevent an accident from occurring. However the following recommendations may help to minimise your risk:-

  • Check if the salon has training and safety certificates
  • Check if the individual carrying out the procedure is a registered nurse/has the necessary qualifications
  • Examine a portfolio of previous work carried out
  • Check if there is a an aftercare policy in place
  • See if check-ups are offered for professional services
  • Check that all health and safety guidelines have been followed

Always make sure before undergoing any treatment that the beauty salon/treatment provider has made you aware of any risk. If they fail to make you aware of the risks of a treatment or to offer you a pre-treatment consultation, this could lead to injuries caused by negligent behaviour.
