What is a hair removal claim?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure using a laser or intense pulsed light that removes hair from the body. The light source heats and therefore destroys hair follicles, preventing hair growth. It is often used on the face, legs, underarms, arms, bikini line and chest.

It is generally a safe procedure but there can be side effects associated with this kind of hair removal. These include:

  • Scarring
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Blistering, swelling or bruising
  • Lightening or darkening of the skin
  • Burns
  • Infections

If you have suffered an injury as a result of substandard or negligent care during the procedure, you could be able to make a claim for compensation. This could be due to unqualified or inexperienced technicians carrying out the procedure or inappropriate equipment being used.

Why should I make a hair removal claim?

Hair removal procedures gone wrong can be considered medical negligence, so you have the right to have this acknowledged legally.

You have the right to compensation if you’ve been harmed due to poor treatment by your hair removal specialist. You may have suffered from any number of complications and injuries, including burns and scarring.

These injuries may require further medical procedures to correct. Claiming compensation could help you pay for these treatments, helping you recover faster.

If you have been injured, you may have had to take time off work during the recovery process. A successful claim could see compensation awarded to cover this loss. You could also have other financial losses – including travel to and from medical appointments – compensated for.

Is there a time limit for making a hair removal claim?

In most cases of medical negligence, you’ll have three years in which to make a claim. To make sure you don’t miss the deadline, you should act quickly and start the process of claiming as soon as you can.

There are some exceptions to the three-year deadline, though. For example, children can make a claim at any point until their 21st birthday. For more information on how long you have to claim, just get in touch with the team here at First4Lawyers.

How much compensation will I receive?
