What are Botox® Treatments?
Botulinum toxin treatment, commonly referred to as Botox®, is one of the fastest-growing areas of cosmetic treatments in the UK and across the globe. The treatment itself involves the treated area being injected with the botulinum toxin which is able to relax muscles in the face with the main aim of smoothing any wrinkles or lines. Contrary to what some people may have heard, Botox® is not permanent and often means clients need to return for treatment every 3-4 months. In addition to skin wrinkle reduction, Botox® can be used for a variety of treatments such as excessive sweating, crossed eyes and other conditions.
As with any cosmetic treatment that is carried out there are risks. Due to the need for multiple appointments some clinics can face difficulties with some patients. It is important, therefore, to make sure that you and your practice are covered should anything happen
We aim to provide you with first class service at all times.
Why do you need insurance for Botox® treatments?
It is vital that those providing Botox® treatment to patients have the necessary Cosmetic Insurance. Because of the increase in demand, there are more and more people offering Botox®, which also can lead to a rise in the number of people potentially seeking compensation. Many medical clinics and practitioners are seeing clients claim for compensation over recent years. This coupled with the 3-4 month treatment cycle means that having cover for this treatment is essential for any skin clinic.
We only arrange insurance for medical and healthcare professionals who undertake this treatment. This means that we do not arrange cover for any professionals who are not members of a regulatory body or a non-medic such as beauty therapists.
