Botox Claims

What is Botox?

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a treatment solution that comes in the from of a liquid that is injected into areas of the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The chemical is injected into the muscle which temporary relaxes the area for up to six months. This is one of the most popular non invasive treatments available in the UK. It is also believed that the net worth of cosmetic procedures in the UK will have a net worth of £3.6 billion by 2015, with non invasive treatments such as Botox accounting for 75% of this figure.

What can go wrong?

Botox is widely used across the world but in rare cases complications can occur, such as:

– Allergic reaction which can cause problems swallowing, speaking or breathing
– Blurred vision
– Drooping eyelids
– Change or loss of voice
– Loss of bladder control

If you have experienced any of these symptoms please seek medical advise. Once you have done this and believe that you may be entitled to compensation feel free to contact us under no obligation.

What are the implications?

The main implications of having a reaction to Botox is the potential health implications which can be life threatening. Botox is seen as a ‘lunch time’ procedure which should have little recovery time. But if you were to have a complication this could mean time off work , which can mean loss of earnings that you weren’t anticipating for. This can have a knock on effect on your confidence and can some times bring on conditions such as anxiety or depression.

Post treatment claims: What can I get compensated for?

If you have had Botox that has gone wrong you can be compensated for the following:

– Allergic reaction that causes other complications
– Unqualified practitioner
– Severe bruising
– Loss of vision
– Loss of voice
– Excessive numbness
– Loss of bladder control
– Unsatisfactory results
– Unqualified practitioner

Unqualified practitioner

Although you don’t need to be a doctor to carry out Botox procedures, you do need to have obtained the necessary qualifications and course attendance . This has meant some people have took advantage of this and set up Botox practices without any training. This is why the Government and the General Medical Council (GMC) has vowed to make the laws on non invasive surgery more clear and that practices are regulated. As there has been news in the press of Botox being carried out by unqualified practitioners and serious consequences have occurred.
