Beauty treatments at spas in Connecticut and elsewhere are meant to relax, restore and enhance. Due to the state’s licensing policies for those who perform such treatments, however, spa-goers may be at risk for suffering serious injuries or illness, as well as death.

Estheticians and nail technicians in the state of Connecticut do not require licensing or certification in order to perform certain beauty treatments. Consequently, those performing such procedures in spas throughout the state may not be adequately trained on how to give people these treatments. Further, those receiving these treatments have no way to know the qualifications of the person working on them.

This was the case for a 61-year-old woman who went to a now-closed Bridgeport spa to have her eyebrows waxed. According to ctpost.com, the woman suffered permanent damage to her eye when the spa’s manager, who was performing her treatment, dropped hot wax into her eye. As a result of the scarring the woman suffered, she now experiences light sensitivity and vision impairments, as well as tearing and pain.

According to WebMD.com, people may experience a range of health problems due to spa and beauty treatments. In addition to the potential for allergic reactions, people may be exposed to all types of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other types of organisms. This may lead to serious infections and the contraction of illnesses such as Staphylococcus aureus, HIV or hepatitis C, as well as treatment-resistant boils and skin abscesses.

When people experience injuries such as those described above, they may require extensive medical treatment, in addition to ongoing care. Seeking guidance from an experienced attorney after such incidents may help people learn more about their rights and options for pursuing compensation for their associated losses.
