A trip to a beauty salon is a relaxing and enjoyable experience for many. It is also a place for some to undergo treatments to help with their wellbeing and confidence. However, what happens if you suffer an injury as a result of a botched beauty treatment or procedure?
When a person visits a beauty salon, they are entitled to a professional service carried out by a trained member of staff. The staff member must exercise proper skill and care when carrying out any beauty treatment or procedure. They must have a consultation with the customer to explain the procedure and risks. They should also carry out a patch test. A beauty salon and any other cosmetic practice must also register with Health Improvement Scotland. This became a requirement in April 2017.
Failure to carry out any of the above could result in negligence, and the injury suffered could be a considerably distressful and embarrassing ordeal for the customer.
If you suffer any injury, loss or damage as a result of a beauty treatment gone wrong, you could make a successful claim for compensation. Here are a few examples of what you can claim for:
