Dermabrasion, or surgical skin planning, is a procedure in which the skin is frozen and then a specialised instrument is used to “sand” the skin. This abrasive or planning action improves skin contour as a new layer of skin replaces the treated skin. The new skin generally has a smoother appearance.
Potential risk of negligence
The treatment generally causes a lot of bleeding and this can make it difficult to judge when to stop removing the skin. This can cause scarring or pigment changes. Whilst healing can take 10 days or more, some redness can persist for up to three months. If the therapist administering the treatment has received inadequate training or if the equipment they’re using is unreliable
Can I make a claim if my dermabrasion goes wrong?
Whilst there are always risks with micro-dermabrasion, if you can prove that the treatment you received was negligent and that this negligence caused your injury then you may be able to claim compensation. If the therapist administering the treatment has received inadequate training or if the equipment they’re using is unreliable this could be deemed as negligence and warrant a claim for compensation.
