Regrettably, many cosmetic treatments go wrong, which most commonly result in hair loss, problems with sight, scarring, embarrassment and on occasion, significant pain and discomfort. The type of industry these injuries most commonly occur in are Beauty therapy treatment such as chemical hair removal, hairdressers, laser hair removal, piercings and tattoos.
Unfortunately, many people are treated by poorly trained staff who do not follow correct procedures. Equipment is also often unhygienic or defective. In addition products are often untested, dangerous and quite simply not fit for purpose.
All cosmetic products supplied in the UK, whether for consumer or professional use, must comply with European Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, which came into force on 11 July 2013.
Other cosmetic surgery that goes wrong such as breast implants would amount to bringing a clinical negligence claim. Click here for more information.
