What are Microneedling and Dermarolling treatments?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that uses micro-sized sterilised needles to gently puncture the skin. These tiny wounds trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin undergoes rejuvenation, promoting a more youthful and revitalised appearance.
Dermarolling refers to the process of using a specialised tool called a derma roller to create multiple micro punctures on the skin’s surface. This tool consists of a small roller equipped with a spinning mechanism that contains extremely fine needles, typically measuring around 0.3mm or smaller.
Why do you need insurance for Microneedling and Dermarolling?
Since microneedling involves the usage of needles to puncture the skin, it is classified as an invasive procedure, thereby increasing the associated risks. Side effects may include allergic reactions when using products that have not been tested for compatibility with microneedling, as well as issues like oozing, swelling, infections, milia, and acne flare-ups.
If a client unfortunately experiences these side effects, they may decide to take legal action against you. This would result in you being held financially accountable for any compensation awarded to the client, as well as being responsible for costly legal fees. Such circumstances could potentially harm your business and hinder your ability to continue operating. Therefore having the right insurance policy in place can help to protect you, your business and your livelihood from any unfortunate events.
