When you’re a personal injury and product liability attorney, you have all sorts of cases come across your desk. Recently, we’ve had clients complain of severe burns they allege are the result of Sally Hansen’s Microwavable Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax Kit. Unfortunately, our clients have suffered as the result of their home beauty treatment.
Clients allege that the problem is one of exploding wax. After microwaving the product according to the included instructions, clients noticed a film developed at the top of their wax. This film was quite combustible as it exploded onto our clients, burning them severely.
As anyone can attest, a wax burn is no picnic. Trying to remove hot wax from your skin can be quite painful, especially at scalding temperatures. Our clients have been scarred as a result of these burns, potentially permanently.
We’d hate to see anyone else burned using an at home waxing treatment. If you’ve experienced a similar burn, call our office today for a free consultation.
