Dermaroller / Micro Needling Accredited Diploma Course

One day professional 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 course is open to experienced therapists only - please see requirements needed to attend below.

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.

Why Book with us?

We are an award winning school, Number One Training School (out of over 80 schools) in the Beauty Industry Survey - By The Guild of Beauty and Holistic Therapists.

And Voted The Guild Awards of Excellence 'Best Training School' by students and won mulitple years in a row! We maintain high standards and are proud of our team of passionate and caring tutors.

When you book with us you have peace of mind we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.

Certificate - Insurance - Brands

Why is our course so popular?

This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.

Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Who do we train?

Every year we train thousands of therapists, from Champneys Health Resort, large professional salons like Dior, leading hotels like the Mandarin Oriental Spa at the Knightsbridge 5 star hotel, the Sanctuary, John Lewis Spa, Bobbi Brown, Channel 4 as well as training therapists and complete beginners who come to us at one of our many venues.
