About Laser Hair Removal Claims

In recent years, laser hair removal has become a popular way for people to remove unwanted body hair, due to its convenience and effectiveness. However, any treatment involving lasers is risky, and injuries suffered during treatment can be severe.

It is therefore important that should you suffer injury at the hands of a professional in such an environment, you have access to an experienced legal team that can provide the guidance you need to make a successful claim for compensation. This is money to which you are entitled, and can make a real difference as you attempt to better deal with the injuries sustained.

The Risks of Laser Hair Removal

Accidents and injuries involving laser hair removal often occur due to improper training, insufficient knowledge, lack of attention to the treatment being carried out or a lack of understanding of an individual's medical history and whether or not they are likely to have a reaction to the treatment. 

The biggest risks when it comes to any beauty treatment involving lasers are burns and skin damage. These can occur for various reasons, such as if a piece of equipment fails or a beauty technician uses a laser incorrectly. We deal with many different claims relating to laser hair removal, and these include:

  • Skin burns
  • Excessive hair removal/hair removal in the wrong areas
  • Scarring
  • Infection/itching
  • Sensitivity of the skin
  • Psychological problems arising from injury

If you have been injured during a laser hair removal session because of an error by a technician, our experienced and knowledgeable solicitors can assist you.

Technician Responsibilities

Your technician has certain responsibilities when performing laser hair removal or similar treatment. If they fail to meet these responsibilities, they may be deemed to be acting negligently.  This could be placing your safety at risk and may lead to an injury.

These responsibilities include:

  • Informing you of any risks
  • Allowing you to change your mind and not pressuring you to undergo the procedure
  • Using clean and proper equipment
  • Explaining the procedure and providing realistic expectations regarding the outcome
  • Providing support and advice should you have issues following the procedure
