Insurance for injectable beauty treatments


Treatment cover

For any beauty therapist offering aesthetic beauty treatments via injections, treatment cover is the cornerstone of your insurance policy. We can cover a range of injectable treatments, including:

  • Dermal fillers (including Juvederm, Belotero, Teosyal and Emervel)
  • Botulinum Toxin (including Botox® and Dysport®)
  • Mesotherapy (injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones and plant extracts)

In the unfortunate event that your treatment causes a client to suffer an injury, illness, disease or permanent disfigurement – or even die – then your treatment insurance will kick in and can cover:

  • Damages you're liable to pay to the client
  • Costs and expenses associated with defending you
  • Legal representation costs associated with a criminal inquiry into manslaughter or corporate homicide
  • Legal representation costs in the event of an alleged breach of health and safety or consumer legislation

Also, if you or one of your employees is required to attend court in relation to a claim, then you'll be compensated at a rate of £250 a day.


Public liability insurance

While treatment cover (see above) is what you need to be protected for injuries caused by the injectable treatments you perform, your policy will also include public liability insurance.

This can cover your legal and compensation costs in the event that any member of the general public (including customers, but not your employees), takes legal action against you for injury or property damage caused by anything other than the treatment itself, such as a slip or a trip in your salon.

Simply choose from £1 million, £2 million or £5 million of cover.


Portable equipment cover

Running any beauty business involves using a fair amount of specialist equipment, and this is especially true if you offer injectable treatments such as dermal fillers.

Our business equipment insurance covers the cost of repairing or replacing accidentally damaged, lost or stolen equipment, including the gear you use for treatments as well as electronic essentials like your laptop or phone.

You can choose equipment cover up to £10,000 with a limit of £2,500 per item, and you and your employees' gear will be covered anywhere in the UK or temporarily worldwide.


Employers' liability insurance

Employers' liability cover is a legal requirement for most businesses in the UK with employees - regardless of whether your team is made up of temporary or part-time staff.

Superscript's employers' liability insurance includes £10m of cover as standard and your business will be covered for employees even if they are working temporarily outside the UK.


Personal accident cover

Personal accident insurance can pay compensation of up to £10,000 if you or an employee of your business (under 75 years of age) suffers an accident resulting in loss of sight, hearing, speech or a limb, death or leaving them disabled and permanently unable to work.


Cyber insurance

You may be surprised to see this one on the list, but cyber insurance is relevant to any business that stores personally identifiable information, including many beauty and aesthetics businesses.

As a beauty business, you'll likely store information about your clients in your database, such as names, email address and even birth dates. This could make you the target of data theft, or result in someone accidentally breaching GDPR legislation by sending out a company email to people who haven't officially opted in to receive them.

Our cyber insurance includes cover for hacking and ransomware, as well as loss of income during a denial-of-service attack. Plus, you'll have access to an industry-leading 24/7 breach response helpline for advice and support in the event of a hack.

What isn't covered by injectable treatment insurance?

We'd love to be able to cover every situation an aesthetic beauty therapist might encounter when administering injectables but, as with all insurance policies, there are some things we cannot cover:

  • Steroid injectables, weight loss injectables, Kenalog, “Devil Lips”, Botulax, Lipostabil, Flabjab, Lipomelt, Liposdissolve, Fat-Away, Essentiale, Cellfina or Celluerase.
  • Any injectables that have not been on sale in the UK or in use in the UK for more than two years.

Injectable beauty treatment insurance T&Cs

In order to be fully covered by your insurance, you must ensure that whenever prescription injectables are administered:

  • The injectables are prescribed by a qualified and registered dentist, doctor, independent nurse prescriber or supplementary/pharmacist prescriber
  • A face-to-face assessment is performed by the practitioner and the treatment assessment and consent form is recorded in writing on the client file
  • The prescriber issues specific instructions to the administer on how the injectables are to be administered to the client
  • You keep a record of the persons prescribing and administering the injectables, and details of their insurance covering prescribing and administering of injectables
  • Only licensed brand injectables and products that are CE or UKCA marked are used.

Once you've completed a quote, you'll be able to view a summary of cover. Please always refer to your policy documents for full details around exclusions, terms and limits of your customised cover. Read our guide to understanding your policy documents.

Be quote confident  

We're big on fairness. So if you find a lower price for a comparable quote, we won't just match it – we'll go one better and beat it.

So even better than apples to apples, apples to better apples. We're talking Galas to Braeburns.

As you'd expect, T&Cs apply.
