Botox Compensation Claims
Botox injections are a form of non-surgical cosmetic treatment which many people opt for to achieve a tighter wrinkle free skin. More and more of us are opting for this type of treatment as it is a quick, low cost and simple solution to slow the appearance of ageing without having to go under the knife.
This type of cosmetic procedure is massively popular and is on the increase in the UK. Unfortunately, there are well-known concerns about the standard of the cosmetic industry.
An independent review in 2015 revealed that there was an enormous lack of regulation over botox injections and those who perform the treatment. It is therefore not a surprise that occasionally botox injections can go wrong. This can result in the patient having to make a botox compensation claim.

What is Botox?
Botox is a drug that is made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. Botox injections are used to cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing the muscles.
The procedure involves injecting botox directly into the neuromuscular tissue. It will then take 24 to 72 hours for the drug to take effect.
Botox works by stopping the release of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine. In order for muscles to contract our nerves release acetylcholine at the junction where the nerve endings meet muscle cells. The acetylcholine will attach to a receptor on the muscle cells causing the muscle cells to then contract. Botox reduces the muscle contraction allowing the muscles to become less stiff.
What are the risks of Botox?
In many cases botox injections are tolerated well and there are few side effects. However, there are some cases where patients can suffer side effects. These include:
- Swelling around the injection site
- Temporary numbness
- Eye drooping
- Neck weakness
- Flu-like symptoms
- Blurred vision
Botox injections should be performed by highly trained and skilled professionals. They should have complete knowledge of the facial anatomy so that the botox injections or dermal fillers are carried out correctly. If the treatment has not been performed to a proper standard or an error has been made, then you may be entitled to make botox compensation claims.
What is Botox Negligence?
Even though there is a great lack of regulation in the cosmetic industry it is still essential that the professional performing your treatment does so to a proper standard. If they do not provide your treatment to a proper standard it often results in botox compensation claims.
The professional owes you a duty of care and if they fail to carry out your botox injection properly or a mistake is made then they have breached that duty of care.
In order to be successful with a botox compensation claim you must have suffered harm as a result. Examples of botox negligence include:
- Injecting more than is allowed
- Injecting deeper into the tissue than is allowed
- Injecting into the wrong place
Examples of harm suffered as a result of botox negligence include:
- Permanent paralysis
- Severe headaches
- Impaired vision
If you believe that your treatment was carried out carelessly then you have the right to claim compensation for botox negligence.
How Much Compensation For A Botox Injury or Negligence?
You can claim compensation for pain and suffering caused by the botox injection. Your award of compensation can also cover the effect the injury has had on your day to day life. This includes; loss of earnings, treatment costs, and travel expenses.
The amount of compensation you will receive for botox compensation claims will depend on the type of harm you have suffered and the different ways the result of your botox injection has had on you. You may have suffered both physical and psychological injuries or you may have suffered physical harm which is permanent.
You may require treatment to make a complete recovery. All these factors need to be taken into consideration. To help us and you determine what your claim is worth you can use our compensation calculator to obtain an estimate.
