Compensation for chemical peel injuries

Beautician face cleaning.

A chemical peel is an extreme cosmetic procedure which involves the application of toxic chemicals to the skin in a controlled manner. The treatment is designed to either remove the dead skin or to cause the death of skin tissue in order to encourage regeneration of the skin cells. This means that a new layer of skin will be produced which appears healthier and smoother. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as scars making it an effective treatment for those with extremely sun damaged skin or scars from a skin condition. The type of chemical peel depends on how severe skin damage is, so those with mild scarring may want to try a superficial peel. Those with more damage can go for a medium or deep peel. Treatments of this nature are best performed by a dermatologist or dermatological surgeon for the best results. As with any cosmetic procedure, side-effects can occur but in some extreme cases, there is the potential for injury if the procedure is not carried out correctly.

How can I have a chemical peel injury?

Cosmetic treatments like a chemical peel should be administered by a professional to ensure that all risk assessments have taken place and the chances of an adverse reaction occurring are reduced. However, some people may experience side-effects including persistent redness of the skin, lighter skin colour or darkness of the skin or even scarring. Occasionally, injuries can occur if the patient does not follow appropriate after care advice. This may include failing to care for the wounds, exposure to the sun too soon after treatment or scratching the area. There may be instances where an injury could occur due to a botched treatment or failure to deliver after care advice. Where there is evidence of negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
