Laser Skin Resurfacing Compensation Claims

When it comes to looking younger many people opt for a traditional facelift. But everyday newer and safer technologies are being developed to help cut down the time and the costs of the race to look eternally young. In the last few years, laser skin resurfacing has emerged as a popular alternative  to the facelift – for people who don’t want to undergo surgery. There is no need for any incisions and the entire procedure is performed above the skin with a laser light.

Although many people believe that laser skin resurfacing is a great deal safer than the traditional surgery, there are still many risks involved and as with any type of cosmetic surgery it’s important that you are fully informed before you enter into the procedure of any risks that are involved. If you feel that you haven’t been informed or if the surgeon has been negligent towards you throughout the procedure then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. 

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses pulses of laser light on the surface of the skin to try and reduce the amount of wrinkles, scars and sun damage to the skin. It can help to tighten and smooth over skin after other procedures which may have left it wrinkled including liposuction. 

Laser surgery is popular as it is easily customisable to the patient. The small and delicate nature of the laser implement means it can easily be guided over specific problem areas and can really focus on certain areas of the face which may need more treatment than others. This type of surgery uses either carbon dioxide laser or erbium laser – both types have their advantages and disadvantages. 

What injuries could I receive?

If there are problems with your laser resurfacing procedure, or you suffer negligence at the hands of your surgeon there are a number of injuries that you could receive, some of the most common include:

  • Scarring – The laser burns a layer of your skin off and your skin can be scarred from this
  • Abnormal pigmentation – You can be left with abnormal pigmentation which can leave your skin looking quite red
  • Cold sores – Can appear as a result of the treatment
  • Infection – You skin can become infected after an abnormal reaction to the treatment.
