With advanced beauty treatments such as micropigmentation becoming increasingly popular, more therapists are turning to offer these services in addition to standard beauty treatments. 


Popular treatments include lip lining, eye lining and of course brow sculpting, along with advanced treatments such as scalp micropigmentation (SMP) to treat common issues such as balding or thinning of hair due to autoimmune disorders. It is also ideal for those who have experienced hair loss due to chemotherapy or for those who wish to cover up scars or previously botched treatments. 


As with many other advanced procedures, accidents or complications may occur - from allergic reactions to pigments to clients injuring themselves on your premises. Other common risks of permanent makeup include the formation of scars. 


Beauty therapists who provide semi-permanent pigment treatments frequently require the use of a permanent makeup machine, which uses needles to penetrate the skin to insert pigment into the chosen area. This, of course, does not come without risks as your client may suffer from excessive bruising or even infection in certain cases. 


Due to the advanced nature of this treatment and the severity of some reactions, it is essential to invest in micropigmentation insurance to avoid damage to your business’ reputation and finances.


If you offer another type of semi-permanent makeup service, we also cover a variety of related practices. Take a look at our full treatment list for further information.


What Does Our Micropigmentation Insurance Cover Include?


The Professional Beauty Direct micropigmentation and semi-permanent insurance policy includes product liability, treatment liability and £6 million public liability cover. We know that you love what you do, and our aim is to help you do your job without having to worry about compensation claims cropping up at any time. 


Public liability cover will protect you if your client suffers a non-treatment related injury when they visit your premises, such as falling on a step. It also covers you if you cause accidental damage to their property during their visit.  



Treatment liability cover will protect you if your client suffers an injury or illness as a result of any micropigmentation treatment or because of the post- or aftercare service recommended by you, provided of course you’ve followed your training guidelines, the manufacturers guidelines of the product and machine you’re using and our policy terms and conditions. This is especially important in terms of Patch Testing.



Product liability cover will protect you if an injury occurs to your client as a result of a product supplied by you, such as an aftercare product causing an allergic reaction perhaps.

Accidents in any workplace are sometimes unavoidable, which is why we want to help you prepare yourself for any situation.
