Client Suffered Burns To The Face From A Skin Peel

Case Study - Light Skin Peel Causes Burns

Ms C had a glycolic acid light skin peel carried out at her local beauty salon, with devastating results. The formula used by the salon was far too strong for Ms C’s sensitive skin, and the beauty technician failed to properly monitor the reaction of Ms C’s skin during the procedure. Ms C was left with painful burns to her face, and further symptoms of a negative reaction. She is now facing skin graft surgery to prevent permanent scarring. Ms C had asked whether she should have a skin patch test carried out prior to the procedure, but the salon had advised her that it was unnecessary as the skin peel formula they used was very mild.

Our Legal Advice

We represented Ms C in a compensation claim against the owners of the beauty salon. We argued that a properly conducted skin patch test at least 24 hours before Ms C’s appointment would have identified the extreme sensitivity of her skin, and would have prevented the negative reaction that she experienced. The beauty technician had used a skin peel formula that was far too strong for Ms C’s skin type, and this had caused the latter’s injuries. This was a clear breach of the duty of care that the salon owed Ms C, to carry out her treatment in a reasonably competent manner. The salon’s insurers accepted liability, and Ms C received £3,300 in compensation.
