Leg Hair Waxing

Wax Hair Removal Claim

Most women in the UK use some form of Hair removal and it has become much more accepted for men to use these treatments too. But what happens when the hair removal goes wrong?
We understand how painful and distressing the side effects from hair removal can be and we can help you to decide if you would like to make a Wax Hair removal claim.

Leg Hair Waxing

Wax Hair Removal Treatments

The most common type of hair removal treatment is waxing and this type of treatments has benefits and drawbacks and clearly has the potential of be carried out incorrectly and causing problems and giving rise to a Wax Hair Removal Claim.

Waxing Problems

Most people who have a waxing treatment will feel some pain or discomfort, but there are some important reasons why some people should not have a waxing treatment.

If you are using prescription medication for acne then you should not be waxed or if you have very sensitive skin. The medication can make skin very sensitive and as a result of this sensitivity waxing can cause:

  • Bruising
  • Burning
  • Excessive skin irritation
  • Scarring from hot wax spillages
  • Blisters
  • Irritation
  • Infection
  • Cuts and cracks on skin
  • Swelling
  • Allergic reactions
  • Bleeding

Your waxing practitioner should be aware of these restrictions and talk to you before starting your treatment and a patch test should be carried out too. We set out below an overview of good practice when removing hair by wax:

What are best Leg Waxing practices?

  1. Test patch
  2. Thoroughly wash legs in warm water to relax the hairs
  3. Pat off water and apply baby powder
  4. Check legs and see in what direction the hair is growing
  5. Test temperature of wax
  6. Apply thin layer of wax
  7. Immediately apply strip and rub up and down
  8. Wait for wax to set
  9. Grab strip at the end, pull in opposite direction of hair growth
  10. Repeat until entire leg is hair free

If you have a leg waxing injury which is not your fault, you can claim compensation for it. You can claim for pain suffering and the effect of the injury on your day to day life. You may also be able to claim loss of earnings, medical and travel expenses.
