Fibro Blast negligence personal injury claims solicitors.
As with many other procedures, Fibroblast is a cosmetic beauty treatment which offers a route to improved appearance without needing surgery.
Fibroblast involves creating an electric charge using a specialised device to shrink the skin where there are wrinkles.
If you sustain personal injury because the procedure was performed incorrectly, you may well be entitled to make a no win no fee personal injury claim against the practitioner or salon providing the treatment.
What is Fibroblast treatment and how can it go wrong?
Sold to the public as non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that can tighten the skin around the eyes, neck, and reduce frown and wrinkle lines, Fibroblast treatment is becoming more and more popular.
In reality, Plasma Fibroblast Treatment, or Fibroblast Treatment, works by discharging electrostatic energy onto the skin (mostly to face, chin and eye areas), in order to tighten skin, and give the recipient a more fresh-faced, youthful look.
If the procedure is carried out correctly, it is suitable for the person having the treatment, and the clinic carrying out the fibroblast procedure is appropriately qualified, on most occasions, the end result can be aesthetically pleasing, with no personal injury suffered to the recipient.
However, this is real life, and, any beauty treatment such as fibroblast treatment that shrinks and shortens the fibres of the skin, in some, unfortunate cases, can go terribly wrong.
The most common injuries to a patient plasma fibroblast treatment goes wrong include:
Burns to the skin
The beautician going too deep into the layers of skin
Facial Scarring which can be permanent

What are the consequences of poor Plasma Fibroblast treatment?
Discharging electrostatic energy onto the facial area is not something that our bodies are designed for, and, like any type of cosmetic treatment, plasma fiboblast treatment can go wrong, with often life-changing effects.
MG Legal’s beauty treatment negligence solicitors have successfully pursued many negligence claims for clients who have been injured as a result of negligence plasma fibroblast treatment.
Beauty salons, and aesthetic practitioners are duty bound to work subject to both the Sales of Goods and Services Act 1982, so that the beauty treatments provided are designed to protect the client from personal injury and harm, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, subject to which owners of beauty parlours and aesthetic practitioners, including those who perform waxing, eyebrow and eyelash tinting, and false tanning, must carry out all beauty treatments in such a way as to protect clients from personal injury and accidents.
However, while you shouldn’t need to second guess the qualification of the beautician treating you, or if they are carrying out the procedure properly, the main causes of personal injury arising out of any beauty procedure are mostly human error, and the result of:
Lack of training
Failure to read instructions
No patch testing
Lack of attention
The beauty provider having little or no qualification
What should I look for in someone who provides Plasma Fibroblast Treatment?
As of 2015 Health Education England (HEE) published their guidelines for Qualification Requirements for Delivery of Cosmetic Procedures. HEE are part of the NHS and so are the leading authority in this country for this type of regulation. For advanced beauty treatment procedures, Health Education England expects practitioners to have a Level 7 qualification, which is equivalent to a Post-Graduate University Qualification, such as a Masters -Degree.
However, what is not required, is for the beauty treatment provider, the person discharging electrostatic energy onto your face, to hold a valid policy of public liability insurance.
Beautician public liability insurance covers the beauty provider if a compensation claim or claim for personal injury is made against the salon, or practising beautician.
In England and Wales, those practitioners carrying out cosmetic and beauty procedures such as:
• Fibroblast treatment
• Laser Hair Removal
• Manicures and Pedicures
• Eyelash/Eyebrow Tinting
are not required, by law to have a valid policy of public liability insurance in place.
What should I do if I have suffered injury as a result of Fibroblast Treatment?
Notwithstanding any claim for personal injury you may be thinking of making, if you have been injured due to the negligent treatment of a beautician, then you should probably visit your GP or local Walk-in Centre to seek advice, on how to treat, and care for your injuries. Alternatively, if your symptoms are severe, you should visit your local Hospital’s Accident and Emergency Department. Your immediate health comes first, and early treatment can offer the best chance of avoiding, or at least minimising long-term consequences. Your expert personal injury solicitor at MG Legal, will be able to obtain copies of your medical records later as part of the evidence for your claim.
If you have been injured as a result of negligently carried out Fibroblast treatment, and are thinking of making a claim for personal injury, please remember to take photographs of the affected areas where the Fibroblast treatment has gone wrong. A picture, as they say, paints a thousand words, and whilst you may not want to do so, photographs or images of your injury will be required to prove the immediate effects of the poorly applied Fibroblast Treatment.
Keep hold of any documentation you were given, such as consent or advice forms, aftercare booklets and any other booklets or pamphlets you were given by the beautician. Documents like consent forms, and aftercare guidance, can provide useful evidence as to the potential dangers of the treatment you have undertaken, and help MG Legal's personal injury solicitors work out exactly what went wrong.
Obtain the details of the practitioner who carried out the treatment and also of their employer and insurer if at all possible.
Were there any witnesses? Take the details of any witnesses, whether family or friends, especially those who may have been with you at the time of the treatment or who saw you immediately afterwards.
Make a diary, and write down what happened as soon as you can, such as whether a patch test was done, what questions you were asked and anything else you think might help you later on such as something you thought was done wrong or anything you thought might have contributed to your injuries.
How does my fibroblast facial personal injury claim work?
When we receive your completed Claim Form at our offices, your dedicated personal injury solicitor will examine the evidence you provide both directly, and with any supporting documentation or evidence as detailed above. From this point, they will decide whether there appears to be any viable way to make a claim so that you know from day one, that you have a case.
If we think you have a case for personal injury compensation, then we will tell you so, straight away. If you have a good case, your personal injury solicitor at MG Legal, will write to the negligent Fibroblast practitioner, setting out the reasons for your claim, and what we they believe was done wrong
If we receive a response from the negligent Fibroblast practitioner, and are still happy that your claim for personal injury compensation has above a 50% chance of success, then we will obtain medical evidence, relating to your injuries. Medical evidence will include a report from an expert cosmetologist, plastic surgeon, or similar discipline of expert so we are aware how long your injuries will take to recover, and what treatment, if any, will aid your recovery .
By the time we have a copy of your medical report, we would ideally have received an admission of liability and so be in a position to calculate your damages. Whatever stage your claim settles, rest assured that MG Legal’s expert team have been here before many times and we know exactly how to steer your case towards the best, swiftest settlement possible.
How is my compensation calculated?
Your claim for personal injury compensation, also known as damages, is split into two categories. General Damages, also known as an award for “Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity”, and Special Damages, which relate to all and any other financial losses you suffer as a result of being injured. Special damages usually include things such as lost earnings, care costs, medication costs, and travel expenses, to and from medical appointments.
When we receive an admission of liability, our personal injury experts will commence settlement negotiations, in order to settle your personal injury claim as quickly as possible, whilst obtaining a settlement that is completely in your favour. If it is not possible to agree a value for your damages based on the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, or the negligent party's legal team are making offers that we aren't happy with, our personal injury experts often use case law precedents, specific to your case, that we can use to obtain a favourable compensation settlement, in your favour. Sometimes, in higher-value compensation claims, we will seek a second opinion from one of our trusted barristers. Barristers are independent and whilst they have a duty to each client, their view is often considered to be more impartial. At MG Legal, we want to make our clients as happy as possible, so if we need to get a second opinion on a matter, to help our clients, then we do so, without hesitation.
