Hello again, Maria, and thank you for providing this additional information.
Since the warning only consists of some "pigment changes which may become permanent" in small lettering, I would typically argue in this case that there was NOT informed consent since you were not warned of the possibility of hyper-pigmentation, open pores, and orange peel skin, or the fact it could take up to a year to heal from the procedure. Also, if it is well known that this procedure may not be safely performed on individuals with olive toned skin, that should have been communicated to you typically.
This does sound like a case of medical malpractice because of a failure to obtain informed consent to you. Your best course of action under these circumstances typically involves consulting further with a local medical malpractice firm who can have your medical records reviewed by a medical professional who can make a determination as to whether malpractice occurred.
If they determine there was malpractice, that would typically provide a basis to pursue compensation from the provider for injuries you have sustained as a result of their malpractice.
It is important to take photographs of your injuries as well so if your case requires legal action, you will have proof of the injuries you have sustained.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
