While many people have been reaping the benefits of laser hair removal since this fairly new technology became available for public use, the need for a good laser hair removal injury law firm Washington DC community members can rely on is on the rise. The popularity of laser hair removal continues to grow even though more and more people are becoming aware of the risks involved with this procedure. Laser hair removal can cause serious 2nd and 3rd degree burns, permanent scarring and disfigurement. A victim of a laser hair removal injury may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to their injury.
A good way to help a person determine whether or not they may be able to get monetary compensation through a personal injury claim, is to discuss their situation with a personal injury law firm that has experienced lawyers- who understand laser hair removal and the rights of people who were injured by this.
Laser Hair Removal Technology
When done correctly, laser hair removal can be a safe and effective way to permanently get rid of hair. The way this technology works is the laser sends streams of invisible light to a hair follicle. The heat from the light destroys the hair follicle and hair no longer grows out of it (although some people have to have an area of their body treated more than once before the hair growth completely stops).
While dermatologists and plastic surgeons were some of the first people to perform laser hair removal when the technology was first made available to the public, this is now a service that many different salons and spas offer. Many spas and salons employ people who have been properly trained to do laser hair removal but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Different states have different laws and requirements over who can perform laser hair removal and what kind of training they need to go through to be allowed to do this legally.
When done correctly, laser hair removal is not supposed to injure anyone. If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. The Washington DC injury lawyers of Cohen & Cohen can help.
