Are you looking for advice following a faulty eyebrow tinting procedure? Claims National is a cosmetic and beauty specialist who can provide you with free help and advice in relation to making a compensation claim.
Eyebrow tinting is very popular and often has desirable results. However, sometimes the procedure doesn’t go as expected. If not performed safely, eyebrow tinting can cause severe burns, allergic reactions, infection or even eye damage.
If you have been a victim of someone else’s professional negligence then we may be able to help you with a claim for compensation.
Eyebrow tinting is a popular treatment undergone by thousands of women each year, due to the benefits that eyebrow tinting can bring. Women who suffer with naturally light or fine eyebrows, or have started experiencing greying eyebrows find that this treatment is beneficial, as it adds colour and life to your eyebrows. Using an eyebrow pencil and consistently filling them in is time consuming and can easily be removed whereas eyebrow tinting has a semi permanent effect. Choosing the right shade of dye for your eyebrow tinting procedure is significant, as it can seriously affect your appearance. Your beauty professional should advise and assist you in choosing the correct shade for your treatment, and failure to do so, or them picking the shade without your consent, could be classified as cosmetic and beauty negligence.

Before undergoing an eyebrow tinting treatment, your beauty therapist should perform a patch test on you to ensure that you are not allergic to any chemicals or substances within the dye. Your beautician should also inform you of the risks and side effects associated with eyebrow tinting treatment, as this may change your opinion on undergoing the treatment. Injuries as a result of eyebrow tinting can include:
- Inflammation or irritation
- Abrasions to the eye
- Chemical burns
- Blurred vision
- Temporary or permanent blindness.
Your beauty therapist’s obligations also include ensuring that the correct method of treatment is performed. This includes using a vegetable-based stain to minimise the risk of irritation, using Vaseline or any other kind of lubricant/blocking solution to keep the dye from contacting the skin, and using a disposable applicator to prevent the spread of infection between clients. Following the list of requirements mentioned will help to minimise the risk of injury occurring during an eyebrow tinting procedure. Although there are basic risks and side effects with may not be due to negligence of your beautician, following the correct methods of treatment will reduce the overall risk of obtaining one of the injuries associated with eyebrow tinting.
As with all cosmetic and beauty compensation claims, you must be able to prove that your injuries/problems have occurred as a result of your beautician’s negligence and there must be sufficient evidence of this. If you have obtained some form of injury, it is significant that you seek medical attention straight away, not just for the benefit of your health, but for the benefit of your case, too. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your case, and all factors, such as; extent of your injuries, pain and suffering, time off work, loss of earnings, further treatment, and medical attention, will all be taken into consideration when deciding upon the compensation sum you receive.
