Complaints about Laser Hair Removal Treatments Gone Wrong

In 2010, the Government deregulated the use of lasers, so the majority of clinics and  beauticians offering laser hair removal treatments are no longer subject to oversight from the Care Quality Commission. This means that only a fifth of laser hair removal operators in the UK are licensed, so as you can imagine, there has been a considerable increase in the amount of errors and injuries caused since the deregulation.

Determining a Person’s Suitability for Laser Hair Removal 
ith so many different types of laser hair removal offered at beauty salons and clinics, it is understandable that customers do not fully understand the treatment they are intending to undergo. They then have to rely on the professionalism and skill of the practitioner and laser operator.

Each person should be given a consultation and a check of their medical history to make sure they are a suitable candidate for this treatment. Many laser procedures are not suitable for those with darker, tanned or olive skin for example, as the pigment in the skin can be destroyed by the laser beams along with the hair follicles. This then leaves patches of discolouration on the skin and extreme sensitivity to sunlight.

Burns Injuries from Laser Hair Removal 

The laser beam can cause sever burns to the skin, potentially causing scarring and permanent pigment damage. If your are burnt by laser hair removal, it is not only humiliating for people, in particular those with burns in visible areas of the face, but it can also be excruciating, with blisters and sores that can be very red and irritating. You should always report your burns to the clinic or salon before seeking medical assistance.

If A Complaint About Laser Hair Removal Does Not Work You Can Speak To A Specialist Solicitor

With moderate to severe injuries caused by poorly performed laser hair removal therefore, the victim is best advised to speak to a firm of solicitors offering no win no fee agreements, and specialising in the fast developing beauty and laser treatment industry in the UK.
