Can I Make an Eyelash Extension Injury Claim?
If your claim is to be successful then it is necessary to prove the beautician has failed to carry out the eyelash extension correctly.
One of the most common mistakes is to fail to carry out a patch test 48 hours before to ensure there is no risk of allergic reactions.
Other mistakes include:
- Applying too much glue to the eyelashes causing irritation and inflamation;
- Unhygenic practices resulting in eye infections;
- Incorrect removal of Eyelash extensions which can lead to a loss of eyelashes which can be very serious.
Unfortunately although you can read up about all there is to know about getting eyelash extensions things don’t always go according to plan.
Whilst the aim is to create luxurious eye catching lash extensions we know only too well that Eyelash Extensions can turn out to be a total disaster.
In fact eyelash extension horror stories are not at all unusual for us.
We regularly hear from clients who have suffered terribly following bad practice and treatment.
If your Eyelash Extension has gone wrong we can help you put things right.
The Risks of having Eyelash Extensions – What can go Wrong?
When Eyelash Extensions go wrong there can be serious consequences particularly as the skin in and around the eyes is so delicate and sensitive.
On occasions not only can the lashes be damages but the eye itself can be harmed.
When Eyelash Extensions go wrong there can then be serious complications including even the risk of blindness.
Most of the problems that occur are related to the glue that is used to fix the Eyelash Extensions in place.
The glue often contains chemicals that can trigger irritation and allergic reactions.
- It is so important the Beauty Salon carries out a skin patch test to ensure that there are not likely to be any allergic reactions to the substances used.
- This needs to be carried out 48 hours or more before the main appointment to extend the Eye Lashes.
- The procedure itself carries risks such as the application of too much glue which can cause the lashes to clump together or it can enter the eye causing pain, discomfort and irritation.
- There can also be a risk of infection if the equipment is not sterilised.
Eyelash Extension Injury – Reducing the Risks
There are various ways in which you can take precautions to minimise the risk of things going wrong:
- Make sure you check out if the salon is reputable – look online for reviews and see whether the salon is insured;
- How qualified is your beautician and do they have the necessary qualifications and experience? There are a surprising amount of lash therapists who are unqualified and have inadequate training.
- Does the salon look clean, tidy and hygienic?
- As stated above make sure that the salon carries out a patch test at least 48 hours before the appointment – don’t ever be tempted to skip this step!
So what sort of injuries can occur and what should you do if you are injured whilst having Eye Lash Extensions?
Eyelash Extension Injury Claims
Unfortunately there are many things that can go wrong when carrying out Eyelash Extensions resulting in:
- Swelling and blistering;
- Chemical Burns;
- Allergic Reactions and Skin Damage from Eyelash Glue;
- Inflammation and Itching;
- Permanent Damage to Eyelashes;
- Eyelash Extension Infections to the cornea and eyelid;
- Eyelash loss (either temporarily or permanently);
- Damage to Eyes including the risk of dry eyes.
The list could be longer still but the main thing to emphasise is you should seek expert advice if you wish to bring an Eye Lash Extension Injury Claim.
The irony is that by applying eyelash extensions some people suffer by losing their real lashes owing to the damage of hair follicles which control eyelash growth.
We know that these claims where the eyelashes have not regrown can be worth substantial amounts.
It is also not unusual for us to receive instructions for clients who have suffered with the lash glue being placed directly onto the clients eyeballs causing corneal burns and blurred vision.
