Beauty treatment claims

Beauty treatment claims for compensation

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:

  • Allergic reactions (i.e. rashes)
  • Bruises, blisters and burns
  • Fungal infections
  • Hair loss or damage
  • Lacerations
  • Scarring

Treatments and procedures that can go wrong

Treatments and procedures that can potentially go wrong include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Eyebrow or eyelash tints
  • Fake tan
  • Hair treatments
  • Hair removal (e.g. waxing)
  • Injections (e.g. Botox, lip fillers etc.)
  • Laser treatments
  • Microblading
  • Nail treatments
  • Teeth whitening

We can help people who have suffered an injury as a result of the above treatments and procedures. If you are interested in making a claim for compensation, please contact us today for a confidential discussion.
