    Thousands of people in the UK have botox or dermal filler injections so that creases in their face appear smoother and they appear younger.

    Despite probably largely being fuelled by images of flawless individuals in television adverts and on magazine covers, the desire to remain youthful is understandable – even to those who would never consider undergoing a treatment to roll back the years.

    However – although these injections are not as serious a treatment as some other cosmetic operations – just like any medical procedure, these types of treatment are not completely free of risk.

    If the equipment is not clean, the injections are inserted into the wrong area, or the incorrect chemical is introduced under a patient’s skin, the side-effects can include severe infection, a deformed appearance, inflammation, and other unpleasant symptoms.

    About Botox

    Botox is actually made from the toxin produced by bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This toxin also causes botulism, a life-threatening form of food poisoning. Nonetheless, it is in fact used in many different medical treatments to positive effect.

    The toxin is used to weaken or paralyse muscles so that skin in chosen areas of the face appears more relaxed due to the fact that muscular contractions are being prevented.

    This treatment is only temporary – lasting about three or four months – before the individual will need to have further injections.

    About dermal filler

    Some dermal fillers are temporary, lasting roughly 6-12 months, and others are semi-permanent, lasting around 18 months.

    One of the most popular types of temporary filler injection is made of a synthetic form of Hyaluronic Acid, which is a substance naturally found in humans and animals. Its presence in the body decreases with age, causing skin to lose its plumpness.

    Semi-permanent fillers are usually made of a polymethylmethacrylate (synthetic resin) and collagen (naturally occurring protein) mix gel.

    • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
    • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.
    • Jonathan helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further compensation. Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
    • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.
