What Are the Signs That My Laser Hair Removal Has Gone Wrong?
Laser hair removal and IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal are among the most common cosmetic procedures in the UK. Unfortunately, problems can occur during and after the procedure, many of which are caused by practitioners who are not qualified to carry out the treatment.
Since the use of lasers was deregulated by the UK government in 2010, there has been a dramatic rise in laser hair removal claims as a result of injuries caused by the procedure. These cases are particularly frequent against non-medically trained practitioners, such as beauty salons and clinics that offer these treatments.
Staff in these establishments are not medically qualified, but still have a professional duty of care to perform the procedure without error or undue risk of harm to the patient.
Examples of common injuries when hair removal goes wrong include:
- A burning sensation as the laser runs over the skin
- Laser burns on the skin after laser treatment
- Skin colour changes
Practitioners’ and clinics’ duty of care
Because of the risks associated with laser hair removal, clinics responsible for carrying out these procedures have a duty of care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their patients. Accountability is of paramount importance, as botched hair removal can result in potentially long-lasting physical and psychological damage.
Professionals are therefore required to not only take all the necessary steps to avoid any adverse outcomes that can reasonably be prevented, but also for ensuring that patients are aware enough of any risks so that they are able to make an informed decision about the treatment.
Before undergoing any procedure, we advise patients to ask the following questions:
- What type of laser is being used?
- Why has this particular laser been chosen for my skin?
- Is there literature available that states the laser is appropriate for my skin colour?
- What are the risks involved?
- Have any adverse effects been experienced with other patients?
- How many treatments will be required?
If the practitioner is unable to answer these questions, it is likely that they have not fulfilled their duty of care. This means you may be eligible to make a laser hair removal compensation claim if something has gone wrong.
