Eye Brow Waxing Claims
Eyebrow Waxing is a very common procedure offered in almost all beauty salons.
Your Beautician should carry out the procedure out quickly and efficiently and without any mishap.
However, we know only too well as specialists in bringing Eye brow Waxing Claims that things can go wrong as they can do with all Beauty Treatment Claims.
It’s not unusual for the injuries sustained to 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:
Beauticians are obliged to use various chemicals and instruments as well as hot wax as part of the procedure.
They also need to undertake other duties which by necessity mean they have close contact with customers.
Of course managers of beauty salons must ensure that each beautician has appropriate training to be able to undertake the procedure professionally.
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.
It may also leave blisters, scarring and significant pain.
Allergic Reactions to Eye Brow Wax.
Inevitably Eye Brow Wax contains a multitude of ingredients and chemicals.
Allergic reactions are definitely something to guard against.
If the beautician fails to carry out a skin patch test 48 hours or more before the Eye Brow Wax treatment then there is areal possibility of suffering an allergic reaction to the procedure.
We know from our experience that these reactions can be severe.
It is also the Beautician’s responsibility to check there are no skin conditions which could react with the wax.
The Beautician also needs to establish any medication being taken could could cause a problem when applying the wax.
Waxing Strips Removed Incorrectly.
The Beautician will need to remove the wax in a safe and proper way.
If the Beuatician removes the wax at the wrong time or too vigourously or pulled in the wrong direction and against the grain then injury 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:
