Dermaroller / Micro Needling Accredited Diploma Course

One day training course in Dermaroller|Skin needling.

This skin needling treatment using a 1.5mm dermaroller creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. 

By creating dermal damage without removal of the healthy epidermis, healing time is rapid with quick results that will last.

This is NOT a beginners course and is open to experienced therapists only - please see requirements below.


The treatment is simple and safe to administer, it takes about half an hour to complete the treatment. 

  • Significantly improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face and décolleté.
  • Skin appearance is fresher and younger
  • Tightens skin and reduces pigmentation and sun marks
  • Creates controlled injury to the skin without causing damage – stimulates new collagen and elastin production, boosting the skin’s own repair system for firmer, even skin tone as well as reducing lines and wrinkles
  • Tiny needles (thinner than a human hair) create micro-channels – increasing absorption of active ingredients for plumper, younger looking skin.

Medical Skin Needling produces similar results to Lasers and Deep Chemical Peels but is a much less invasive skin renewal technique at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime.

Skin Needling is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin. The treatment can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.

The micro-needling procedure creates thousands of micro wounds, triggering new collagen synthesis. It allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism so the whole procedure is all-natural and fast.

A course of 3 treatments at 6 – 8 week intervals is recommended to achieve optimum results, however great skin improvement is noticed after just one treatment.
