Has a cosmetic practitioner caused a North Dorset accident?
Although more and more people are opting to undergo cosmetic procedures, the industry isn’t always well regulated. Unfortunately, some of the practitioners currently performing treatments may not have undergone much training, and they could be likely to cause a North Dorset accident as a result.
If you attend a regulated hospital to have a serious cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift or a tummy tuck, it is likely that this will be carried out by specialist surgeons in accordance with the guidelines governing surgical procedures in the United Kingdom.
However, less invasive procedures, such as botox injections, collagen fillers, and face peels, are often carried out by practitioners in salons and clinics on the high street. While some of these practitioners may well be experienced and thoroughly qualified, the industry doesn’t currently require practitioners to have much experience or training for some procedures. This means that you could end up with a practitioner who has only undergone a few weeks of training, and who may have never carried out the treatment before.
Although the industry has been subject to scrutiny, and plans are in place to increase regulation, this has yet to happen. While regulation is still vague at best, the chance of a North Dorset accident occurring as a result of treatment may arise.
If you’ve suffered an adverse reaction to a treatment, or you feel that it wasn’t carried out properly and a North Dorset accident occurred, you may be able to take action against the practitioner, or the company for which they work.
