What Is Chemical Peel Treatment Insurance?
Chemical peels are widely used by many to rejuvenate and bring life to our skin. They help remove dead skin and also begin to stimulate the growth of new skin. Chemical peels are great for reducing acne and come in several forms.
The main three types of peel you will come across are superficial, medium and deep. Superficial and medium strength chemical peels are for the most part safe and are not permanent, meaning there will need to be subsequent treatments. Deeper chemical skin peels are more permanent and because they are going deeper into the skin do come with slightly greater risk.

Why Would The Practice Need Business Interruption Insurance?
As for any cosmetic practice, there is a huge reliance on clients coming through the door to generate revenue. If there were to be any interruption to this, there would be a significant reduction in revenue but your business would still have most of the same overheads of bills and staff salaries, leaving you at risk. Business interruption insurance offers cover for loss of income during periods when you cannot carry out business as usual due to an unexpected event. This cover is generally linked to events which have caused damage to your premises such as fire or storms, but may also extend to interruptions resulting from the breakdown of equipment.
