Why Is Microneedling Training So Important?
As a practitioner, it’s imperative that you get the proper microneedling training to administer effective treatment for your clients.
Microneedling is a relatively new field of skincare, and the best way to learn is through hands-on training with a live instructor. A form of collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a painless non-surgical procedure that helps skin rejuvenation.
Collagen is a natural protein found in our skin and through microneedling we boost the production of it. As a result, the skin works to eliminate problems such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation, even fine lines and wrinkles.
Training in microneedling will offer the added benefit of allowing you to test the device on yourself, which is the best way to truly understand how the device works.
This will also give you the opportunity to ask questions and clarify any points of confusion.

It is important to note microneeding is not suitable for individuals who have taken Accutane in the past six months, anyone who has undergone radiation in the past year, anyone with open wounds or infections, or people who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

How Microneedling Works and After Session Skincare
You may be wondering how exactly a small pen can provide such a range of solutions for so many different problems. The secret is the clients are doing most of the work themselves! Microneedling triggers your skins collagen production and skin growth. The numerous tiny needles are used to create micro-injuries within the skin to trigger growth factor release.
Each session can last up to thirty minutes, and multiple sessions may be needed. The epidermis layer of the skin is preserved in microneedling so there is a short recovery time and minimal side effects.
You may be surprised to learn just how many skin care products today contain microneedling ingredients. Most of these products are designed to be used in conjunction with microneedling, offering the added benefit of increasing the surface area of the skin exposed to the microneedling pen.
When used in this manner, these products can help enhance the benefits of microneedling. It is important to recommend and stock these products so that you may offer them to your clients for the wait between sessions!
Understanding Depth Settings
You must know the different depth settings for the different areas that you will be treating on your patient.
This allows you to target specific areas with increased precision and effectiveness.
The best microneedling products are those that are designed to work in harmony with the microneedling pen, providing maximum benefit to your skin.
You will be taught how to effectively use the correct depth setting on different areas of the patient’s skin to offer optimal results whilst maintaining patient comfort.
This is something that is always best taught in person so you can get a great understanding with your own eyes of the difference that a few millimetres of depth can make to the patient’s results.
