Eye Brow Waxing Claims

Eye Brow waxing is often quick, cheap and effective. But what happens if things go wrong? What steps should you take if you are injured through no fault of your own and what’s the best way of going about claiming compensation for Your Eye Brow Waxing claim?

Persons eyes

Eyebrow Waxing is a very common procedure offered in almost all beauty salons. The procedure should be carried out quickly and efficiently and without any mishap. However we know only too well as Solicitors specialisng in Eye brow Wax Claims that things can go wrong. Furthemore, very often the injuries sustained can be quite nasty, particularly as the procedure is carried out next to sensitive areas of  skin in and around the eyes.

What Can Go Wrong with Eye Brow Waxing?

Inadequate Training can lead to Mistakes being Made:

As part of the procedure beauticians are obliged to use various chemicals and instruments as well as hot wax. They also need to undertake other duties which by necessity mean they have close contact with customers. It goes without saying that the managers of the beauty salon must ensure that each and every beautician has full and appropriate training to be able to undertake the procedure professionally and competently.

Using Unclean and Non-sterilised Equipment.

The Salon’s equipment must be properly sterilesd before being used. It’s easy to understand how using unclean equipment can lead to a variety of infections which may include hepatitis, tuberculosis, and even HIV.

Temparature of the Wax.

The beautician needs to ensure that the wax is at an optimum temperature so that it’s effective but not too hot to cause injury.  Hot wax in and around the tender tissues of the Eye Brow can clearly cause serious injury and may leave blisters, scarring and significant pain.

Allergic Reactions to Eye Brow Wax.

Inevitably Eye Brow Wax contains a multitude of ingredients and chemicals and unless a skin patch test is undertaken 48 hours or more before the Eye Brow Wax treatment then there is the possibility of suffering an allergic reaction to the procedure and we know from our experience that these reactions can be severe.

It is also the Beautician’s responsibility to also check that there are no skin conditions which could react with the wax and to establish any medication being taken could could cause a problem when applying the wax.

Waxing Strips Removed Incorrectly.

Once the wax has been applied then the Beautician will need to remove the wax in a safe and proper way. Damage can be done if the wax is removed at the wrong time or too vigourously or pulled in the wrong direction and against the grain.

What Injuries Can Occur?

It’s easy to see that when applying Eye Brow Wax in the wrong manner there are a number of different types of injuries which might occur including:

  • Wax Burns to the skin in and around the eye;
  • Cuts, Damage and inflammation;
  • Residual Scarring;
  • Allergic reactions;
  • Infections
