Permanent Make Up Errors
Permanent make up is very popular and can often have desirable results. However, if not performed correctly, damage can be caused to the patient.
Also known as semi-permanent makeup, cosmetic tattooing or micro pigmentation, this process is used for a number of things, including making eyebrows darker when there is little or no hair there, adding an eyeliner tattoo or a lip liner tattoo.
As suggested above, the procedure is a tattooing process and will require the use of a needle to penetrate the skin in order to leave a pigment behind.
It should be noted that a patch test must be completed along with the proper stérilisation of the equipment being used.
Some of the most common complications can include:
- Allergic reactions to the dye used
- Skin damage
- Not achieving the desired effect
- Granulomas (these are nodules that form around foreign matter in the body)
A practitioner must have completed the proper training and have insurance in place as well.
If you have had a substandard cosmetic procedure or have had avoidable post-procedure complications you may be entitled to pursue a medical negligence compensation claim.
