Waxing Injury Claims

Waxing is a quick and easy way to remove unwanted hair, but it is not without its risks, mainly because wax is often applied to the most sensitive parts of the body. It is essential that treatment is carried out by fully trained professionals - if it isn’t, serious and life-altering injuries can be suffered.

If a waxing treatment has been botched by a beauty professional, you may able to claim compensation for the damages. Call our team of lawyers today on 0333 323 5292, or fill in the contact form and we will get back to you.

Common injuries

Injuries are caused when the wax is left on the skin for a longer period of time than recommended, or if it is overheated. The following injuries can occur if something has gone wrong with the treatment:

  • Burns
  • Adverse skin reactions
  • Blisters
  • Rashes
  • Cuts
  • Skin tears

Skin patch tests should be carried out by salons to avoid any allergic reactions to the treatment. You should also be asked whether you are on any medication, and are suffering from any health conditions, as these can cause an adverse reaction.

What can you claim for?

Waxing injury claims are based on the severity of your injury, and compensation can be awarded for the pain and suffering caused, as well as the loss of earnings and any medical expenses.
