    The dangers of laser hair removal


    The vast majority of laser hair removal procedures are carried out without problems, but if you have undergone a laser hair removal process and something has gone wrong due to the recklessness or negligence of those carrying the workout, you may well be able to make a claim.

    What is the difference between expected and unacceptable side-effects of laser hair removal?

    Some side effects of laser hair removal are normal and to be expected. These can include short-term swelling of treated follicles, numbness, tingling, pain, itching and redness. However, these side-effects are only supposed to last for a short period of time, a few days at the absolute maximum.

    Some of the more serious side-effects can cause big problems if they are not treated quickly. Scarring is a serious side-effect of laser hair removal and is normally caused by the laser. If an infection occurs after treatment, scar tissue may form. In laser hair removal treatment, the hair is destroyed at the follicles by light beams. Burns are another serious consequence of treatment. At Accident Advice Helpline, we may be able to help you if you have sustained scarring or burns because of laser hair removal treatments.

    It’s wise to keep hold of as much evidence as you can to strengthen the likelihood of winning your case. Don’t get rid of any photographs of your injuries, receipts for medical treatments arising from your injuries or medical reports as these could be exactly what we need to make your claim a success. If you find your surgeon wasn’t registered or didn’t have the training or qualifications needed to carry out the procedure, we may well be able to claim.
