A Hong Kong woman is seeking $10,000 in compensation from a beauty clinic in Mong Kok after a series of tattoo removal laser treatments left her hand blistered and scarred, Apple Daily reports.
The woman underwent the $600 tattoo removal procedure at Windland Medical beauty clinic and immediately felt that something had gone wrong.
She went to another hospital and was held there for two days. Doctors told her that the procedure may have partially impaired functioning in her hand, and she may need skin grafts to repair the damage done by the lasers, according to the report.
The woman refused further medical treatment from Windland Medical beauty clinic and continued to post images of her scarred left hand online. The medical clinic has promised to give the woman a full refund, but has questioned the authenticity of her photos.
The court has yet to decide the compensation outcome.
