Beauty Treatment Compensation Claims

When you visit a beauty salon, you expect a professional service from trained staff. When this isn’t the case, a routine treatment can end up causing you harm. If you've suffered an injury at a beauty salon, we can help.

The lack of regulations in the beauty industry means that salon staff can use equipment and perform treatments without proper training or experience. If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of negligent treatment by a beauty therapist, we can help you claim compensation.

Our solicitors have experience making beauty treatment compensation claims for:

  • Injuries from lip fillers
  • Injuries from incorrect use of semi-permanent makeup
  • Lacerations, blisters, burns and infections from waxing
  • Loss of hair
  • Eye injuries from lash extensions or dyes
  • Allergic reactions to wax, eyebrow and eyelash dye
  • Burns and rashes from tanning
  • Burns or scarring from chemical peels and laser treatments
  • Damage to the nail beds from excessive filing
  • Reactions to manicure and pedicure products
  • Fungal infections from sterilized equipment

How Much Compensation Can I get?

This depends on the injuries and financial losses you've suffered. Every injury is different, and your circumstances will be unique to you. We offer a free initial consultation where we'll discuss your situation and how this can affect your compensation.

Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?

Yes. Most of our personal injury claims are taken on a No Win No Fee basis. This means you can make a claim with no financial risk*.

Beauty Treatment Compensation Claims - More Information
    • What Will Happen When I Make A Claim?
    • The first stage is a free initial consultation where we’ll talk about your claim and how we might be able to help. After this, we’ll discuss different ways of funding your case including No Win No Fee agreements*.

      We’ll collect a variety of evidence to support your case including advice from beauty industry experts on how your procedure should have been conducted and what corrective treatment might be needed. We’ll use all the evidence to calculate how much compensation we think you’ll need to cover any corrections and other expenses (such as travel costs).

      Our team will present their findings to the organisation responsible for your treatment. They’ll be asked to explain what happened and whether they believe they were at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll try to negotiate a compensation package that best suits your needs.

      Beauty treatment compensation claims can be particularly difficult because of the lack of regulation in this area but we have the knowledge and contacts needed to be successful with your case. We’ll work hard to find out what guidelines needed to be followed by the person providing your treatment and why things went wrong.

    • What Can Compensation Pay For?
    • Your compensation should cover any money you lost because of your injury. This includes losses from not being able to work, and any medical treatment you need. It should also provide for the pain and suffering caused.

    • Will I Have To Go To Court?
    • If the person or business you’re claiming against doesn’t accept fault, we’ll start court proceedings. Even if this does happen, most claims are still settled out of court before the trial.

    • What Is A No Win No Fee Claim?
    • A No Win No Fee agreement means you won’t have to pay anything upfront when you make a claim.*

      If your case is successful, our legal costs will be taken from your compensation, and your opponent will pay most of your fees. If your claim isn’t successful, you won’t have to pay any costs.

The compensation means I can have the care I really need rather than what's provided as a bare minimum."

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Risks Of Beauty Treatments In A Salon?

Routine beauty treatments often don’t require a trained medical professional to carry them out. This means there is more chance of mistakes being made.

You may have suffered because guidelines weren’t followed, your health information wasn’t checked, appropriate aftercare wasn’t provided or when faulty equipment was used.

Complications include:

  • Dermal fillers – rashes, swelling, itching and bruising can occur. The filler can also move away from the intended area and you can suffer allergic reactions which may lead to anaphylaxis. Lumps can form under the skins and filler can also block blood vessels, resulting in the surrounding tissue dying.
  • Botulinum toxin injections (including Botox) – your facial features around the injected area can become weak and may droop. You can also suffer from blurred or double vision and experience breathing difficulties.
  • Chemical peels – superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels can cause similar complications including scarring and infection. Your skin might also appear lighter or darker than normal.
  • Laser treatments – the skin can blister, sometimes causing scarring. Your skin colour can also change.
  • Microdermabrasion – swelling can result in the treated area and the skin can become red. You may also become more sensitive to sun after the treatment.
  • Eyelash extensions and tinting – allergic reactions to chemicals used in eyelash glue and dye can cause rashes, swelling and even damage to the eyes. A patch test should be conducted before your procedure to check you don’t have a reaction to chemicals in the products.

If you’ve suffered an injury from a beauty treatment and would like to make a claim, we could help. Call us on 0800 056 4110 or contact us online.

What Is A Patch Test?

A patch test is used by beauticians to check if a client is allergic to any chemicals used in their products.

The patch test should be given 24 hours before any treatment that uses chemicals.

If you haven’t been given a patch test and suffer an injury or reaction, we could help you make a claim. Call us on 0800 056 4110 or contact us online.

Is There Anything I Can Do To Help My Claim?

If you’ve suffered an injury, you should get medical attention as soon as possible.
