Dermal Needling Training

Looking to bring skin needling into your clinic?

Microneedling offers many benefits for skincare professionals looking to include additional, results-driven (and also profitable) services for their clients.

Microneedling – often referred to as dermal needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) – is a well-established technology with proven results which is a minimally invasive procedure utilising a handheld device that creates a controlled puncturing of the upper layers of the skin with micro-fine needles.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a versatile treatment and treats a multitude of different skin conditions and concerns. Treating everything from wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dull skin to issues such as scars, stretch marks, and cellulite (although results depend on many factors) and even hair loss! One of the most marked improvements seen is an improvement in the overall look and quality of the skin.

The purpose of this procedure is:
1. Transdermal delivery – The tiny punctures in the skin from the needles create “micro channels” that allow sterile mesotherapy solutions to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of skin to deliver more powerful results.

2. Trauma – controlled micro-injuries move the skin into healing mode and stimulates collagen and elastin production. This process plumps skin and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and pores.

Course Content

All training is performed using Fusion Mesotherapy a bespoke cosmeceutical brand. This innovative range allows the therapist to customise each aspect of the procedure with specific mesotherapy solutions, which are applied during the needling, blended into sterile sheet masks and sterile aftercare cream. This is further supported by take-home products specifically blended with mesotherapy solutions.

This class covers both theory and practical application of microneedling. You will see, feel and perform a dermal needling treatment on the day.

This is an in-person group class. As dermal needling is an advanced treatment, we also recommend at least one year of industry experience before attending.


Please note, we cannot train unsuitable candidates (eg: you need to have a beauty or medical qualification/background and accompanying knowledge of skin, anatomy & first aid prior). Medical grade skin needling is a risky treatment in unqualified hands and should never be performed by ‘everyday people’ at this level. Please don’t be offended if we ask for proof of qualification or turn you away after enquiring. We are committed to upholding high standards.
