Suing for Negligent Collagen Injections

Collagen is a naturally produced protein which sadly declines with age. The collagen protein provides skin with its shape, suppleness, support and texture. However as we age we loose these attributes and our body starts to get lines, wrinkles and loose folds of skin. This is when people turn to Collagen injections.

Injection of collagen has meant that the signs of aging have been temporarily reversed. It is used to decrease the appearance of blemishes, laughter lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. It can now be injected into the lips so they look more plump, which is now a desired effect.

Although little research has been done into the long term side effects of collagen, we have seen cases where Celebrities have had so many Collagen injections they have been left permanently disfigured.

Before receiving collagen injections, the surgery must carry out skin patch tests. This is crucial as it will determine whether or not you will have a serious allergic reaction to the injections. A professional consultation must be done on new clients, as collagen is unsuitable for women breast-feeding or pregnant, as well as those taking blood thinning medications.

There are a multitude of risks involves in collagen injections, but one of the most common is infection caused by lack of hygiene. In extreme circumstances, clients can be left with lumps under the skin as well as skin irregularities and permanent scarring.

Clients have the right to expect their treatment will be carried out by true experts. You are able to sue a collagen surgeon if they have behaved in a negligent manor and failed to meet standard requirements. Suing for negligent collagen treatments is simple and what you deserve after suffering at the hand of a negligent professional.
