Level 4 Award in Microneedling (Upskill) Course

This course is specifically designed for those who are looking to upskill their existing Skin Needling skills and gain a professional, internationally recognised qualification.
With new regulations coming to our industry, practitioners and premises delivering skin penetrating treatments will need to become licenced. Having a professional, government approved qualification is fast becoming essential.
With this course you can rest assured that you have a nationally and internationally recognised qualification behind you which is commonly required by employers and insurance providers as well as licence applications.

Need the full qualification? Find out more on our Level 4 Microneedling page.

Course Requirements

The Award in Skin Needling requires you to have already completed prior training in Skin Needling and be actively practicing this skill in industry.
Before enrolling onto this course, therapists must first submit a video of themselves performing an in depth, advanced consultation with a client receiving a Skin Needling treatment so that we can ensure your current consultations meet the requirements of the qualification, set out by the awarding body.

Additionally, this advanced Beauty Aesthetic qualification requires students to hold either a Level 3 Beauty Therapy qualification (including Facial and Body Electricals) or, at minimum a Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology qualification, together with a Level 2 Facials & Skincare qualification.

Don’t have these? Don’t panic!

We offer all the above courses right here at Omni Academy. If you’re looking to book a bundle of courses, we can put together a bespoke package for you, to ensure you have everything you need for the next step in your business and career.

Course Content

  • Provide cosmetic skin needling treatments
  • Microneedling treatments using a manual roller
  • Microneedling treatments using an electrical pen

This Award concentrates on upskilling your existing practical skills and focuses on building a case study portfolio. All case studies are completed at Omni Academy across 3 face to face sessions and will include the use of both manual rollers and electrical pens. Upon completion of these, you will be required to perform an End Point Assessment in front of an external ITEC examiner where you will demonstrate your practical skills and submit your case study portfolio.

A key part of this treatment involves an in depth advanced client consultation to enable you to formulate a specific treatment plan to suit the individual client needs. This will need to be demonstrated in the End Point Assessment. Therapists already delivering this treatment will be well practiced in delivering these. To ensure that your consultations meet the level expected at End Point Assessment, we will require a demonstration of the client consultations you typically carry out. These will need to be videoed and sent into us ahead of the course start. Once reviewed, if there are areas which need to be developed in order to meet the qualification criteria, we will get in touch to discuss your next steps.

If you already deliver this treatment then you’ll know Microneedling is hugely popular and effective for a range of skincare benefits and helps target:

  • Skin Ageing
  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Acne Scarring
  • Pigmentation

This course is commonly studied alongside the Level 4 Skin Peeling course. You can study both courses side by side.
