What Happens During The Treatment?
Before going to the appointment, you should usually grow out your brows for as long as possible so that their natural shape is evident. Longer and thicker hairs are removed at the same time as smaller, more insignificant hairs. When you go for the appointment, hot wax. Will be applied to the edges of the eyebrows, using a slim spatula. The hair is mostly removed from in-between and below the eyebrows but it can also be removed from above if that area is also unruly. If you have suffered an injury during this treatment, you could be able to claim eyebrow wax injury compensation.
Eyebrow Wax Injury Compensation Accidents
The point of this sort of treatment is to create symmetrical, shaped eyebrows. However, due to the use of hot wax which is then ripped off the skin, there is the chance that an accident could occur. For example:
- You could suffer burns, blisters or swelling if the wax is too hot.
- If the wax is not applied properly, you could potentially have the main part of your eyebrow ripped off which would be incredibly painful and counterintuitive to the aesthetic look most people are seeking.
- The skin could potentially be ripped off if the beautician is not careful when removing the wax.
- You could suffer an infection if the procedure. Is not done correctly.
If you’ve experienced any sort of injury due to undergoing an eyebrow wax treatment, you should go to a GP or your local hospital as soon as possible. It is best to get these sorts of injuries treated as soon as possible so that they do not worsen or develop into infections.
