People use Botox in an attempt to treat moderate to severe lines that occur between the eyebrows known as glabellar lines, as well as frown lines and lines around the eyes known as Crow’s Feet. Some people will use Botox regularly as a deterrent to fight of the signs of ageing. Sometimes the Botox procedure gores wrong and when it does you may be able to claim Botox Injury Compensation, from the Beauty Salon’s insurer. EAD Can act for your Botox Injury Compensation on a No Win No Fee basis.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles in order to temporarily reduce wrinkles and facial creases. When injected into a muscle the Botox relaxes the muscle by blocking nerve impulses, this causes the muscle to become temporarily unable to contract so that wrinkles can’t form. This then leaves the overlying skin appearing smoother, softer and more youthful.
Botox and dermal filler treatments have become increasingly popular and more widely available due to its demand. You can find this treatment available in beauty salons, cosmetic clinics and health spas.
Negligent Botox Treatment
Although the treatment is non-surgical it is not without its risks and side effects. It is important that whoever is administering the treatment checks that the patient does not have any medical conditions or allergies that could be triggered by the use of Botox.
Botox has been largely unregulated and Botox practitioners can gain their qualifications almost overnight, this has resulted in a large number of non-medical trained people providing Botox treatments. This can lead to substandard practices and inadequate after-care, also some will not carry out the necessary medical background checks or ask the patient to complete a medical questionnaire.
Risk of Botox
Botox can cause serious side effects which can even be life threatening, these include:
Blurry or impaired vision
