Today it is easier than ever to get beauty treatments at a bargain price. Whether you want to improve your hair or get some minor wrinkles fixed, you can do it quickly and easily and often at a cheap price. But what is the risk in choosing cut-price beauty treatments? As more and more practitioners set up shop, and do not have to have formal qualifications or health and safety training, the risk increases that customers are injured by beauty treatments designed to make them look better. Here’s what you need to know about the dangers of cosmetic beauty treatments and what you can do legally if something goes wrong.
Common Beauty Treatment Complaints
Beauty clinics, hair salons, and individual beauticians all offer services as diverse as hair removal, hairdressing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. When these procedures are correctly administered there are normally no problems and the customer leaves the beauty salon happy with the work done. But in some cases people suffer burns, cuts, abrasions, hair loss, and other damage to skin or hair.
Increased Risk of Damage from Cut-Price Treatments
Since anyone can set up as a beautician and offer cosmetic treatments without possessing qualifications or a specific set of licenses, it is possible for problems to occur. This is increasingly possible when the treatments are offered at a bargain price. You are more likely to run into an inexperienced person administering these treatments, or even someone with no experience who is looking to make some easy money. It is important to weigh the risk of saving money on beauty treatment with safeguarding your health.
What You Can Do
If you are interested in a beauty procedure the first thing you can do is to make sure you choose a procedure at a well-respected establishment, where there are experienced professionals to take care of your beauty needs. Check that the salon or beauty clinic is well-established and you can also check for reviews online or from previous clients to make sure that there is not a precedent of beauty procedures gone wrong. Look at the relevant experience of the beauticians and make sure that they know exactly how to carry out your chosen procedure safely. Remember that the cheapest service is not necessarily the best, and while it does pay to shop around for a good price, this is not the only consideration you need to make.
If something does go wrong, you can make beauty claims for personal injury so that you are legally compensated for your injuries. Injuries may come in the form of burns, hair loss, or facial injuries. If you are injured, bear in mind that you are entitled to claim – your health is important.
