    Compensation for microdermabrasion injury


    Compensation for microdermabrasion injury

    The signs of ageing, sun damage or signs of scarring can all give the skin a dull, lifeless complexion. Many people choose to use skin creams or regular facials to rejuvenate the skin but, in some cases, people may want to try out a cosmetic treatment to give the skin a healthier appearance. Microdermabrasion is a type of deep facial treatment which involves the use of fine crystals to exfoliate the top layer of skin. This removes dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

    Many opt for this treatment as it is a less extreme alternative to a laser treatment procedure or a chemical peel which may not be suitable for those with allergies or minor scars. Those with scars from acne or those with sun damaged skin may benefit from microdermabrasion as it improves the appearance of the skin, making it healthier and more supple. There are potential risks with any form of cosmetic treatment so a professional should always be consulted to ensure that you get the treatment that is right for you.

    How could I have an injury?

    Potential injuries may occur if you are ill-advised to have the microdermabrasion procedure or you suffer from an allergic reaction. Allergies are rare but some side-effects are to be expected including inflammation, skin redness and tightening, some minor cuts, sensitivity after treatment and minor bruising. These side-effects should be disclosed to you beforehand in order for you to make an informed decision about undergoing microdermabrasion. If you suffer from persistent redness or cuts, you may be the victim of a procedure gone wrong. Although these cases are rare, the potential for an injury to occur is still present, particularly if someone is negligent. Should you suffer from injuries or prolonged side-effects you can consult a specialist law firm if there is evidence of negligence.
