    Compensation for non-surgical cosmetic treatment injury


    Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are best for those who want to avoid general anaesthetics and those who want to avoid invasive procedures. The healing process should also be reduced with non-surgical procedures meaning you will not have to suffer loss of wages from time off work. Non-surgical procedures include cosmetic injections, laser treatments and dermabrasion techniques. Most of these treatments deal with skin complaints such as wrinkles, acne scarring, thread veins and sun damage. Many of these procedures are not painful or cause minimal pain and patients are often sent home the same day of treatment. Of course, as with all cosmetic procedures, it is wise to be aware of any risks and side-effects involved with the specific type of treatment you choose. All treatments should be carried out after advice from a medical professional and by a medical professional to reduce the risk of botched procedures or adverse effects.

    What are the possible risks of non-surgical cosmetic treatment?

    With all cosmetic treatments, there is a potential risk of injury but this is reduced if you research the treatment thoroughly and are provided advice from a GP or medical expert. You should never go with someone that does not appear to be certified in performing the procedure as you are putting your own health at risk. Side-effects are common with many treatments but often do not amount to more than some pain, swelling and inflammation. Some rare patients do suffer allergies but this cannot be foreseen unless the allergy is known to the sufferer. On occasion an accident may occur during treatment. If this occurs and you feel that your injury was a result of negligence, you may be able to make a compensation claim. If you have evidence that someone did not carry out the procedure correctly or did not give you appropriate after-care advice, you may be able to win a cash payout.

    How to win a cash sum

    No-one wishes to go through a botched non-surgical procedure but, if you do, then you are entitled to claim compensation if the incident was the fault of someone else. Should you seek no-obligation advice, Accident Advice Helpline is able to provide you with this. Just give our 24-hour helpline a call and we will help you decide whether to pursue your compensation claim. Where there is evidence of negligence, you should win compensation from the third party at fault and we do not take a fee unless we win your case so you don’t need to worry about paying upfront.
