Laser Hair Removal Injuries
A popular way of permanently getting rid of unwanted hair is laser hair removal as many salons and spas are adding this procedure to their list of services. Hair follicles are destroyed with rays of lasers which are extremely hot. If done correctly, the process of laser hair removal can achieve a desired result, but there are many instances now where those performing the procedure are not properly trained or fail to take the proper safeguards to protect the customer whereby they are sustaining burns and scars in certain instances. If you were injured as a result of laser hair removal, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation against the spa or salon that administered the procedure. The QUINCY AND DORCHESTER Laser Burn Injury Lawyers at Brabant & Huynh LLP will aggressively advocate to hold them responsible for the harm they caused you.The Risks of Laser Hair Removal
One of the most typical injuries suffered by customers of laser treatment are burns. Even though the treatment is administered in a non-medical environment, it does not mean that risk is less when compared to treatments done at the ER or medical center. Relaxed procedural oversight and improperly trained employees can mean more likelihood of injury and mistake. Currently the FDA is assessing whether the laser hair removal devices should be employed and used by non-physicians. Regardless of who administers the treatment, if an injury occurs where second or third degree burns result, it can be severely painful for the customer and can cause them to be unable to move around comfortably while also potentially causing permanent scarring. Scarring can also result in skin discoloration which in some cases is irreversible.Litigation Regarding Laser Hair Removal
Notwithstanding whether a spa or dermatologist has administered the procedure, it is critical for the injured victim to understand that there is an avenue of legal recourse against the negligent party. All places that provide laser hair removal have a duty to safeguard against mistakes and must adequately train and supervise their employees and staff. Moreover, they have a duty to appropriately maintain the laser hair removal equipment.
In one of the first laser burn injury claims from the early 2000’s, a woman suffered serious third-degree burns due to laser removal surgery which affected her face and caused serious scarring. The victim in that case stated that she would have to use special coverings to conceal the scarring and has felt a deep depression and emotional suffering from the injury.Call a Massachusetts Laser Burn Injury Attorney For Laser Hair Removal Injuries
