Tailored Micropigmentation Insurance for Beauticians
As a beauty therapist providing your clients with micropigmentation treatments, you understand the risks associated with the procedure. Since it involves making fine incisions into a customer’s skin, it has the potential to cause a variety of problems. For instance, a client may develop an infection, or suffer an allergic reaction — both of which may be difficult to treat due to how deep the pigment is inserted into the skin. In extreme cases, you may be faced with further issues if a client isn’t satisfied with the results they expected to receive, or something goes seriously wrong. This can result in legal action, which could damage your bottom line and leave your business in a particularly dire situation, not just financially, but in terms of your reputation.
This is why taking out micropigmentation insurance from Salon Gold is essential for ensuring that your business is protected at all costs, so that you continue working your magic on clients. Our policies are specifically tailored to suit your business model, so whether you work at a salon or on a mobile or freelance basis, we’ve got you covered. Salon Gold specialises in providing all-in-one packages for companies, offering everything they need to protect themselves should they face any legal problems.
Brought to you by Salon Gold, insurance policies for beauty professionals.
At Salon Gold, we understand the everyday risks you face at work, and offer your business a package which has been catered to your individual needs. You can secure micropigmentation insurance by adding this to your beauty therapist policy, which includes automatic public liability, products liability and treatment risk cover to protect you if your work results in accidental damage to a client’s property, or causes injury.
You can supplement your policy with other optional insurance like legal expenses, stock & equipment cover and personal accident insurance. These can safeguard your business as a whole, including your finances, should a claim be made against you which results in hefty charges. However, it’s worth knowing that the add-ons we provide will also depend on whether you own a salon or if you’re a freelancer, though we always make sure that every business receives the cover they need, no matter what situation they’re in.

Do I need micropigmentation insurance?
Micropigmentation involves the use of needles on a client’s face, which understandably poses several risks. For instance, if they suffer an infection due to unsterilised needles while other potential problems could arise if the results of the treatment don’t live up to what your customers’ expectations. These are both instances where a client may make a claim against you. Without an insurance policy in place, you could experience significant financial loss which could leave your business struggling. Taking out micropigmentation insurance from Salon Gold will let you rest assured that your company will be fully protected should anything go wrong.
How much is micropigmentation insurance?
Our comprehensive Salon Gold beauty therapist package includes our standard automatic covers, but you also have the option to add any additional covers you choose, including micropigmentation insurance. The overall cost will depend on the individual requirements of your business, but all of our packages are affordable, and buying a full package is far cheaper than purchasing any covers individually. You can get a free quote from Salon Gold here on our website.
What can I do to prevent clients from making a claim?
While accidents are sometimes unavoidable, you can reduce the risk by ensuring you follow all health and safety measures associated with micropigmentation. This includes things like carrying out risk assessments, sterilising all equipment before use, and managing expectations through clear communication with clients.
