Laser Hair Removal Burns & Negligence Lawyers
Laser hair removal is the process whereby unwanted body hair is removed by utilizing laser light to destroy the hair follicles. These procedures have become more and more popular in recent times with services being offered at beauty salons and specialized clinics. Quite often these procedures are performed on sensitive areas of the body and multiple treatments are required to meet the end goal of preventing the hair from growing back again. Individuals with darker, thicker hair often require more treatments.
Unfortunately, sometimes these procedures can go wrong and can result in serious injuries, including:
- Second or Third Degree Burns
- Nerve Damage
If you suffer an injury during laser hair removal, make sure to document the injury quickly with photographs and go to a medical doctor right away.
If you were not made aware of the potential side effects that can be associated with laser hair removal or suffer serious burns you could have a claim for personal injury. Call the lawyers at Taylor & Blair LLP today to see if you have a case.
