The beauty industry In recent years has seen a greater number of people undergoing cosmetic procedures, with up to 90% of the total estimated number of these cosmetic procedures accounting for non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
We have seen other professionals move into providing these services such as hairdressers, Dentists, beauty therapists, make-up artists, even fashion shops etc.

The non-surgical cosmetic industry is not regulated. There is no requirement for anybody who is involved in non-surgical cosmetic procedures to be properly trained, qualified or registered.

However the businesses which offer these procedures and products still owe a duty of care to their clients/customers to ensure that the procedures are performed with care and skill.

This lack of regulation which would ensure minimum standards, means that standards in the industry can vary significantly. We are seeing an increased number of potentially negligent mistakes causing injury and disfigurement.

It is not uncommon with these type of procedures that women (but not exclusively) undergo these procedures just before an important event such as Weddings, holidays, family occasion or a ‘big’ night out. A failed procedure resulting in injury can cause distress and prevent the individual from attending these important social occasions, due to the shame of their appearance.

Types of non-surgical procedures which lead to injuries which are common in these situations are:

  • Dermal fillers
  • Laser treatment
  • Botox injectionsWaxing

These procedures can cause injuries such as scarring, burns, bruising, skin discolouration, change in skin texture and psychological injury.

It can also lead to further professional treatment being undertaken such as revised surgery from a plastic Surgeon or dermatologist.

Normally the only way an injured party can receive redress for injuries caused is to take legal action as it’s often the case that there are no complaints procedures or if there are there are inadequate.

If you have undergone one of these procedures and suffered injury the practitioner may have been negligent, please contact one of our Solicitors to discuss further.
