Facials are becoming a popular way for people to moisturize and heal the skin on their face. Professionals use techniques to help their clients obtain a clear complexion, but working so closely with another person’s skin exposes you to certain liability risks. Without facial insurance, you could be facing steep out of pocket costs when accidents do happen.

Questions About Facial Insurance?
What is Facial Liability Insurance?
While this is not a dedicated facial insurance policy, providing facials will be included in your Beauty and Bodywork Insurance policy. With this policy, you are protected from third-party claims of damage or injury while performing work. You also are extended coverage for errors made in the process of your work or omissions (things you didn’t do correctly) that caused damage to a third party.
How Much Does Facial Insurance Cost?
Providing client facials will be included in your Beauty and Bodywork Insurance policy. A professional policy starts at $96/year and a student policy starts at $67/year.
Many esthetician practices and services are included under one policy. A unique policy is not required for all of the services you provide to your clients, however, some may require an endorsement (ie. acupuncture, cupping, or microcurrent). This will be clear in the application.
Are My Tools and Equipment Covered with Facial Liability Insurance?
Yes! By adding the optional Tools & Equipment Coverage to your policy, we may extend coverage to various items and property you use in your business and services. This can include salon chairs, steamers, rollers, storage fridges, and serums. If an item is accidentally damaged or stolen, your insurance policy may help you cover the cost to repair or replace it.
Tools & Equipment Coverage is an additional $13/year for $2,000 per policy year and occurrence limit. You can add this optional endorsement to your policy during the application, or add it to an existing policy from your customer dashboard.
Do I Need Facialist Malpractice Insurance?
Estheticians and other beauty professionals always benefit from carrying liability insurance. By purchasing a BBI policy, you are getting General and Professional Liability Insurance coverage. Facialist Malpractice Insurance is included in the Professional Liability piece of your coverage, meaning it will help with claims where an error was made or an omission was made that caused damages to your client.
We always suggest that you select a beauty and bodywork policy that has professional coverage for the best insurance to meet your needs as you work with clients.
What Methods are Included in a Facial Insurance Policy from BBI?
Many different methods for facials are covered in your one policy including:
