Non-Invasive Treatment Injury Claims

Surgery can sometimes seem excessive so we opt for non surgical or non invasive procedures instead. These procedures still come with their own risks which should be made clear to you prior to anything being carried out. There are currently no regulations on who can perform procedures, such as beauty treatment injections, meaning these are often carried out by high street beauticians with little or no medical experience or qualifications.

We deal with personal injury compensation claims under a no win no fee agreement, to minimise any financial risk in pursuing a claim.

Common non-surgical treatment issues

The term 'non-invasive' covers most minor procedures which do not require surgery. There are no surgical cuts or invasion of the body and the risks of serious complications are significantly lower than surgery. However no treatments are without risk and here are some of the common issues that can arise:

  • Botox disfigurement - permanent or temporary
  • Allergic reaction
  • Skin sensitive
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Swelling
  • Breathing difficulties

Botox Injury

Botox can be great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing out the skin. The effects only last a few months and regular treatments are required to keep the desired results. Botox is classed as 'prescription only' but there are no rules or regulations as to who can carry out the injection.

So it is recommended that you only have a professional carry out any procedures and they should ask whether you are taking any medication as some can interfere with the Botox chemical. If the Botox does react badly with your existing medication then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Dermal Filler Injury

Dermal Fillers are a popular treatment for the appearance of wrinkles. They work by injecting a filler into the skin as to raise the area to be level with the rest. Care is usually taken to make sure the filler is injected at the correct depth in the skin layers. It can also be used in place of surgery although the results only last a few months.

Possible side effects could leave you with the appearance of lumps or temporary facial paralysis. The injection can also trigger an allergic reaction. There are generally no regulations on the type of fillers that are available for use or who is allowed to perform the injection.

Injury from a Chemical Peel

The results from chemical peels can be astonishing for some, but devastating for others if things go wrong. The procedure 'peels' away the outer layers of the skin to eliminate fine lines, acne scars and sun damaged skin. It is important that the correct type of chemical is used for your skin type and desired results. Side effects can appear as redness of the skin, allergic reactions, infections and even permanent scarring. Some extreme cases have resulted in organ damage.

As with fillers and Botox, there are generally no regulations in place as to who may perform the procedure. Insist that you have a trained professional carry out the procedure as to minimise the risk of things going wrong. You are not alone if things do go wrong so give us a call and we can help and advise you in your claim for compensation.

Can I claim for an injury from a non-invasive treatment?

According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, "84% of problems with permanent fillers require surgery or are deemed untreatable".

An independent review into the regulations of cosmetic interventions has been commissioned by the Department of Health in England. It calls for the registration of people who can carry out these non-surgical procedures.

We can help you recover any costs for any future corrective surgery that may be required. In some circumstances, we may even be able to secure for you an interim payment so that any hardship felt due to loss of earnings is kept to a minimum. We offer a free assessment of your claim as well as a no win, no fee agreement.
