BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman who got hot wax dropped in her eye at beauty spa has settled a lawsuit against the now-closed business for $400,000.

Frank Bailey, an attorney for 61-year-old Gail Gianpalo, of Monroe, says his client suffered permanent eyes injuries from the botched eyebrow wax and incurred about $4,700 in medical expenses.

The settlement was first reported by the Connecticut Law Tribune .

Gianpalo went to the Fairfield spa in July 2016 to get her eyebrows waxed. According to the lawsuit, while the salon's manager was in the process of applying wax to Gianpalo's eyebrows, he got into an argument with another customer and dropped hot wax into her right eye.

The settlement was reached with the help of a mediator.

The Tribune left a message with the spa's attorney.
