Finding insurance that covers the specific beauty and cosmetic procedures you provide can prove difficult. You need a cover that provides enough security against any risks, but it also has to be cost-effective. Professional Beauty Direct has created specialist insurance packages for our customers, ensuring that protection is there when you need it most.


Please note, we do require that you hold an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent in Beauty Therapy for us to cover you in this treatment.


Removing hair from various areas of the body has become a popular beauty trend among both men and women in recent years. To accommodate this trend, laser hair removal and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are treatments that have become increasingly available. Body hair is permanently removed from the desired area by the laser or IPL, which extensively damages the hair follicles through the intense heat and therefore inhibits future growth.


As more and more professionals are being trained to deliver laser and IPL hair removal procedures, it is more important than ever that you find the cover that suits your needs, whether you are an established clinic or self-employed and mobile


Safeguarding Against the Risk of Hair Removal


The purpose of laser and IPL hair removal insurance is to protect yourself and your business from the financial consequences of a mistake made by either yourself or a staff member. Although the risk is minimal, you’ll want to be prepared with the right level of cover to keep your personal and business assets safe should an accident occur.  Knowing both your client and your business is protected can be a much-needed reassurance for business owners and independent beauticians. It also ensures that customers feel confident in returning to you for future treatments. 


Even if you carry out the procedure correctly, there are a number of risks that you face, as clients can have adverse skin reactions and side effects as a consequence of the treatment. Changes in skin colour, crusting, redness and irritation, eye injuries, skin infections, blisters, and scars are all part of the risk of IPL and Laser. Should a customer experience one of these side effects, they may decide to make a claim against you. Beauty insurance will provide the cover needed to protect against a payout that could be large, possibly amounting to thousands.


Professional Beauty Direct insure against laser and IPL treatments which can include the following cover:

  • £6 million public, products and treatment liability
  • £10 million employers liability (salons only)
  • Mobile Kit & Equipment optional cover
