When things go wrong after laser treatment
Today, laser treatment is used for a variety of cosmetic and medical purposes. Corrective laser eye surgery is becoming more and more popular, as is laser hair removal and laser for anti-ageing treatments.
Unfortunately, sometimes things can go wrong and can cause enormous distress, pain and disfigurement. Injury solicitors in Loch Rannoch can help you claim compensation if you have sustained a physical and/or psychological injury due to laser treatment.
What is laser treatment?
A laser is a device that emits light. The light heats up cells, causing them to be destroyed. There are various types of laser which have different uses.
Common uses of laser treatment include the following:
- Corrective eye surgery;
- Hair removal;
- Tattoo removal;
- Reduce appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch-marks; and
- Removal of moles and warts.
Laser treatment should ideally be carried out by trained medical professionals, however it is becoming more common for untrained beauticians to carry out procedures, thus increasing the risk of injury. Heavily discounted offers often entice people to have a procedure.
Common injuries sustained as a result of poor laser treatments include:
- Disfigurement; and
- Skin colour change.
As well as physical injury, there can be emotional injury too, such as depression, anxiety and stress. Corrective treatment may also be required.
