Esthetician insurance helps you protect your business and personal finances from liability claims like bodily injury, property damage and professional liability. As an esthetician, your insurance should, at the very least, include general liability, professional liability, and business personal property coverage.

Esthetician Insurance Cost

Regardless of your work setting, It’s important for estheticians to have insurance, specifically general and professional liability insurance.

General liability insurance, also known as slip and fall insurance, protects exactly that, incidents like slipping and falling. If a client trips over a cord and injures themselves, general liability insurance protects you against any possible lawsuits.

Professional liability insurance, also known as malpractice insurance, provides protection in the case that a client sues you specifically for damages resulting from the service you provided. Essentially, if the client gets a burn from a wax or facial they received from you, malpractice insurance for estheticians would protect you.

BBI’s esthetician liability insurance provides both general and professional liability at a $3,000,000 aggregate limit and an occurrence limit of $2,000,000.

Beyond general and professional liability insurance, you will also want to look at products liability insurance for estheticians. This would protect you if a client had an allergic reaction to a product you used on them.

When researching insurance, it’s important to look at what coverages the policy you’re seeking offers. For example, does the policy cover general, professional, and/or products liability? This is extremely useful when comparing prices.

You should also review whether the policy is a claims-made or occurrence limit. An occurrence limit will protect you for a defined period of time if you have a lapse in coverage but receive a claim that occured while you had coverage. Sometimes it can take a while for a claim to be made regardless of the severity and if you have insurance. A claims-made policy will only cover you if the claim occurred and is filled while you have coverage.

Beyond occurrence limits, you should look at the specifics of the aggregate limit. An aggregate could be either a master share aggregate or an individual aggregate. A master share aggregate means that all the policy holders in that group share the same aggregate. If someone in the group has a claim, it lowers the remaining aggregate for the rest of the group. An individual aggregate only lowers if you make a claim.

While each policy has coverage specifics, here are some actual claim examples that BBI has covered. Without esthetician liability insurance you could be held liable for these claims.

  • The claimant experienced burns on their eyelids after an eyebrow waxing.
  • A fire caused damage to the claimant’s workshop and products.
  • Claimant had an injury from a brazilian wax.
  • The studio was broken into and robbed resulting in stolen computers.
  • A sink was leaking in the salon and caused water damage.

All policies have conditions, limitations, and exclusions, please read the policy for exact verbiage. Claim scenario circumstances vary in nature and similar claims do not guarantee coverage.

To put it simply: yes. Because you are working on people's skin, you will want to be protected in case they have an allergic reaction or sustain other injuries from your treatments and day-to-day business operations. The costs of medical care, legal defense, and more can add up quickly, draining both your business and personal assets. You also may be required to have liability insurance if you rent space at a spa or salon, and they may even require you to list them as an additional insured on your policy.
