Can I Sue for a Wax Burn at the Salon?

Jun 7, 2017

When you get a treatment at the salon there are a variety of burn hazards you need to watch out for. Luckily most cosmetic treatments are carried out with no burns occurring, but that doesn’t mean that you can be complacent. Sometimes it happens that an injury occurs that gives rise to a claim for compensation. How do you know if you will be able to make a claim? Can you actually sue a therapist if you suffer a wax burn or other burn in the salon?

Common Types of Burn Hazard in the Salon

There are many different cosmetic burn hazards in the salon. These include burns from the chemicals that therapists use for dyeing and straightening hair, burns from hot liquids like wax which is used for hair removal, and burns from lasers that are also used for hair removal.

Why Do Cosmetic Burns Take Place?

The most likely reasons for cosmetic burns are procedures being performed by untrained or inexperienced therapists, lack of focus and concentration when carrying out the procedure, and neglecting to perform safety procedures associated with treatments such as skin tests.

Can I Make a Claim?

A claim can usually be made for a wax burn injury or a laser hair removal burn injury when the injury occurred through no fault of your own, as a result of the incompetence or negligence of the therapist. Normally they would be expected to carry out the procedure to a high standard, and if this does not happen and an injury results, you may need a lawyer. You may also need a laser burn lawyer if burns injuries cause psychological damage.

How Much You Can Claim

The amount of money you can be awarded following a claim depends on the injury and where it affected the body, including whether it has emotional or financial consequences. The more severe and impactful the injury, the higher the amount awarded.

The length of time it takes to make and gain the claim depends also on how severe the situation is. In general, if you have less serious injuries the case will normally progress more quickly. There are also other factors that can affect how long the claim takes, including whether the salon or the other party admits liability, and whether the claim gets taken to court. Consult a professional solicitor to check what you can expect from a personal injury claim.

How Dangerous Is Electromagnetic Radiation?

Jun 5, 2017

You may have heard about electromagnetic radiation, or electromagnetic field (EMF). If you have heard of it, you’re probably worried. Do you need to be scared? Is there anything actually dangerous about electromagnetic radiation?

Electromagnetic Radiation is Everywhere

If it is dangerous, it is very hard to actually avoid it. EMFs are energy fields that are generated by equipment and gadgets that use electrical power. Given that most of us are surrounded by these gadgets practically every moment of our lives, you can expect to be exposed to electromagnetic fields on a regular basis. EMFs come from a wide variety of things, from cell phones to microwaves, radios to TVs.

What is Electromagnetic Radiation?

Electromagnetic radiation is generated when voltage changes or when there is a flow of electric current. There are different types of electromagnetic radiation including non-ionizing radiation. This type of electromagnetic radiation is considered to be harmless as it is not potent. Sources include microwaves, PCs, wireless networks, cell phones, power lines, and others. Ionizing radiation is what you consider to be high-frequency radiation which is definitely damaging under certain circumstances. Ionizing radiation includes ultraviolet light, x-rays, and gamma rays. But is non-ionizing radiation really safe?

Non-Ionizing Radiation Dangers

Research shows that electromagnetic radiation from common gadgets like cell phones can actually cause harm to the body. Experts have demonstrated that there is a link between cancer and cell phones, for example. It is best not to carry a cell phone on the body, and to use emf protection for phones, since this is one of the prime ways that your body comes into contact with EMFs.

Wi-Fi is another current health concern regarding EMFs, since it is a relatively new technology and not a lot of research has taken place into its safety. You may need to be exposed to EMFs from Wi-Fi for a considerable amount of time, but the dangers remain – wireless networks have been linked with toxicity and a negative effect on the cells in the body. It is a good idea to switch off Wi-Fi when you are not using it. Many people complain of health issues like dizziness, weakness, anxiety, and feeling faint when they are exposed to strong Wi-Fi signals all day.

In terms of power lines, it is generally safer the further you move away from the lines. You only really get exposed to significant levels of EMFs when you are right under the lines. If you live close to power lines you can measure their strength with monitors.

Clenbuterol – The fat burner

Jun 3, 2017

Clenbuterol as assumed by everyone is not a steroid; it is a central nervous system stimulant that was developed for treating asthma and other respiratory diseases. Primarily developed as a smooth muscle relaxer this muscle was popular for treating chronic obstructive disorders. While using this drug for the treatment of these diseases its other benefits came to light I.e. fat burning and a performance enhancing. Clen belongs to Beta 2 Sympathomimetic drug class. This is marketed under various trade names such as Dilaterol, Ventipulmin or Spiropent.

Additional to the several benefits, Clen also preserves the lean muscle mass which was developed. For men, this is famous in the cutting cycle and for women it is used both in the bulking and cutting cycles. As Clen has fewer androgenic effects on the female body when it is used in the bulking cycle along with a proper diet and exercise routine, shows great results in women. This improves the cardiovascular performance by increasing oxygen transportation within the body; this allows the user to train more and results in a lean, sculpted body.

When Clen molecules bind with the adrenoreceptors of the adipose (fat) tissue, they stimulate and initiate lipolysis. This is the reason this has gained popularity among celebrities and weight loss industry. At the same time when these molecules bind with the muscular tissue they have anabolic effect for women athletes or bodybuilders. There are very few drugs which have different effect on different muscles and Clen is one among them. But the user should make sure that they follow a healthy diet and exercise for weight loss.

Clenbuterol cycles for weight loss

Clen for better fitness and weight loss has become very famous because of its fast results. For beginners it’s recommended to start with a small dose of 20mcg per day and increase depending on how the body is taking the drug. For males the maximum amount that is generally tolerated in 120-160mcg and in females it is just 80-120mcg per day. But the difference is that in females, as little as 40mcg shows good results. The cycling of the drug is very important as the body might get used to the drug and will not give the desired results when the dosage is same for a prolonged period. Once the user gets to know the personal tolerance level then a cycle of 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off is followed to maximize gains. But at any time it is not recommended to take Clen for more 12 weeks at a stretch.

Clen side effects

As Clen is not a steroid it does not express the side effects that anabolic steroids do. That doesn’t mean that there are no side effects. Any power packed drug has side effects when used in abundance or in the wrong way. Similarly the side effects of abusing Clen are –

  • Drowsiness
