Microneedling Level 4

This one day Level 4 Medical Microneedling training is available to qualified skin professionals only including beauty therapists and medically trained professionals.

Microneedling can also be called skin-needling or collagen induction therapy. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial and body rejuvenation that involves the use of a needling device to create a controlled skin injury.

Microneedling is considered to be one of the safest skin rejuvenation treatments currently available.

What is Microneedling?

The basic premise behind “micro needling” is to stimulate the production of new collagen by needling the skin. Taking advantage of the skin’s ability to heal itself, microneedling causes micro-injuries to the epidermis, which signals the body to produce collagen to remodel the damaged area which in effect rejuvenates the skin making the skin look younger and fresher.

As each fine needle on the device punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by the production of collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to the reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment and can be used for facial and body areas for concerns such as ageing skin, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, burn and surgical scarring and stretch marks. This treatment can be offered to clients as a stand-alone skin rejuvenation treatment or can be combined with other non-surgical treatments for optimal results which is another fantastic benefit of adding Microneedling to your aesthetic clinic.
