Been Let Down through a Beauty Treatment Procedure…
The difference between invasive and non–invasive therapies is that invasive treatments are done by cutting or entering a body part using medical instruments, whereas non–invasive treatments do not require breaking the skin or entering the body. Non–invasive therapies are what we think of as Beauty treatments and involve multiple treatment types and because the potential harm is not as serious, many more clinics are attempting them.
The amount of damage or injury caused is often far from trivial, these treatments can be very serious…

Facial products are becoming increasingly complex and as a Beauty treatment carry increased risk.
As our world shrinks through modern budget travel, more and more people are experiencing the “native” treatments that up until now have been hidden by distance. All manner of exotic fruit, nuts and flora are finding their way into our soap products, shampoos and facial products. This Beauty treatment mania seems to be relentless.
The problem with exotic ingredients is that many people simply will not know that they are intolerant of them..
Our immune systems have been busy building up resistance to our native chemicals over thousands of years. Our immune responses have no index of things that have grown in different corners of the world. It is necessary therefore before we are exposed to them to ensure that we are safe from reactions that may cause us distress or injury.
Funding a Beauty Claim

Beauty Clinics are Becoming adept at marketing new and novel treatments.
The beauty industry is worth billions. Every major town and city seems to have access to a relatively well funded beauty clinic that is brimming with machines and treatments that are not subject to regulatory testing or clinical trial. This beauty treatment craze is very much hit and miss and when it comes to health, the risk for customers is yours.
Just because a hundred other people have been treated without harm does not mean the treatment is safe.

Dermatitis describes a sort of skin irritation. Dermatitis is a common condition and it has many causes and also occurs in many forms. It typically involves itchy, dry skin or a rash on swollen, reddened skin. Or it may sometimes cause the skin to blister, crust or flake. Examples of this condition are atopic dermatitis (eczema), dandruff and contact dermatitis. Dermatitis isn’t contagious, but there is no doubt it is unsightly and irritating. It can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Moisturizing regularly it seems, does help control the symptoms. Only long term medication can bring about a “cure”. Treatment may also include medicated ointments, creams and occasionally specialist shampoos.
Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. It’s common in children but can occur at any age. Atopic dermatitis is long lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically. It may be accompanied by asthma or hay fever as a sort of immune response. No cure has been found for atopic dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis and treatments are a common skin condition that mainly affects your scalp. It causes scaly patches, red skin and stubborn dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids and chest. Seborrheic dermatitis may go away without treatment. Or you may need many repeated treatments before the symptoms go away. And they may return later. Daily cleansing with a gentle soap and shampoo can help reduce oiliness and dead skin buildup.
Irritant Cosmetic Dermatitis This is the most common skin disorder that can be caused by cosmetics. The most frequent complaint is a rash and facial itching. Types of cosmetics that may cause irritant contact dermatitis include:• Facial cleansers: these often contain surfactants that are necessary to clean the skin• Toners and astringents: these may contain alcohol or acids such as alpha-hydroxyacid (AHA), which can cause skin problems in some people• Facial treatment: this involves the use of manual manipulation and application of chemicals on the skin, often resulting in exfoliation of the upper skin surface. Mild irritation is inevitable, but severe skin inflammation like dermatitis can occur Excessive or inappropriate use of any of these skin care products and procedures can cause skin irritation, especially in individuals with sensitive skin or underlying skin diseases.
Allergic contact dermatitis, which occurs less frequently than irritant contact dermatitis. It is often difficult to differentiate between the two by the appearance of the rash alone. Cosmetics ingredients that can cause skin allergy include fragrances, preservatives and sunscreens.
Cosmetic Induced Acne and treatments, these pimples usually occur in patients who have a past history of adolescent pimples. Some cosmetics, typically those such as foundation and moisturisers which are left on the skin for a long period of time, can cause comedones (“blackheads” or “whiteheads”) and inflamed pimples to appear. Patients with cosmetic-induced pimples are treated as for ordinary pimples, i.e. appropriate creams/gels with or without oral medication, depending on the severity.
Hair-dye allergy treatment, is one of the most common causes of cosmetic dermatitis in men and women. Some people are able to dye their hair initially without any problem, but may suddenly develop an allergy to the dye after repeated use. The face, ears and neck are often affected. The substance in hair dye that often causes an allergy is para-phenylenediamine (PPD). It can be found in almost all brands of permanent hair dyes. Those who are allergic to PPD hair dyes must avoid all synthetic chemical hair dyes.
The only suitable substitutes are henna, a vegetable dye, or metal pigment dyes. Sunscreens protect our skin from sun damage. However they can also cause skin problems. Besides being sold commercially as sun-blocking agents, they are also incorporated into numerous cosmetic products such as lipsticks and facial foundation. Sunscreens can cause irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis and photoallergic contact dermatitis. Photoallergic dermatitis differs from allergic contact dermatitis, as the rash occurs only after the skin comes into direct exposure with the combination of the allergic substance and sunlight.
All chemical sunscreens have the potential to cause photoallergic dermatitis. Physical sunscreens, which contain metal elements, such as titanium dioxide, do not cause this problem. Consult a dermatologist for a skin patch test if you suspect that you have sunscreen allergy. After the patch test, your dermatologist should be able to advise you on the type of sunscreen that you can use.

One Final Thing!
We would suggest that if you are contemplating instructing a Solicitor but you are a bit concerned about calling or emailing – for whatever reason, then write down every particular about what has happened to you. Put down dates and times and names of people involved. Then months from now when you change your mind and do contact a Solicitor – you will have the details. Many claims are never brought because the patients simply forget the details and are too embarrased to contact a lawyer to discuss. Get them on paper and if you never use them no harm done.
