VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Certificate in Skin Needling – Cheshire

05 / 08 / 2024 to 16 / 09 / 2024


VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Certificate in Skin Needling Banner

In the last few years, the aesthetics industry has seen a huge demand for skin needling treatments. The VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Certificate in Skin Needling is an advanced qualification designed specifically for both level 3 qualified beauty and medical practitioners. The Level 4 Skin Microneedling course is suitable for all practitioners seeking to add advanced procedures to their treatment offering. 

In the ever-growing and expanding aesthetics industry, being able to show that you have regulated qualifications is a great way to set you apart from other clinics. It also enables you to gain the best knowledge in performing treatments, which helps you to achieve the best results for your clients.

We believe this to be one of the best course out there for practitioners who want to be competent and confident in performing skin needling treatments in their own business.

Useful Information

The JCCP is now stating that regulated qualifications are a must and that all practitioners should have them, regardless of background, to ensure correct and safe treatment.

All training will take place in our state-of-the-art Training Academy at Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

Why Train with Lynton

Our training centre is equipped with the latest interactive audio-visual technology. We have treatment rooms housing our industry-leading aesthetic devices, allowing delegates to receive excellent educational content together with live demonstrations and hands-on experience with live models.

Uniquely, we are able to offer hands-on experience on a wide range of different systems, unlike many other training providers who generally only have one system at their disposal. We believe no other training centre has this number of systems available.

All of our trainers have years of experience in performing treatments as well as training, so they are able to give the best and most accurate knowledge possible.

I am using the EPN pen at least 5 times a week, sometimes more, and skin rejuvenation is the most popular treatment. I have got clients who have been having microneedling with me for a long time, and they have definitely noticed a big difference in terms of results with the EPN pen. I haven’t tried the hair restoration treatment yet, just because I’m so busy with skin treatments.

Customer Testimonials

I think Lynton are a fantastic company and your customer service is the reason I came back to you again to buy the EXCELIGHT®. Our Business Development Consultant was fantastic and went out of her way for us by getting us a trolley for the system the same day. Janet (Clinical Trainer) is an excellent trainer. Both I and my husband, who is a doctor at the clinic, found her to be very professional. This training was a refresher for us both. The engineer who delivered the EXCELIGHT® was very helpful and was able to help us on site - the servicing of our lasers with you has always been very good. The results I have had with both my LUMINA and EXCELIGHT® have been outstanding, which is exactly what you need in a medic-lead clinic. Very happy! Score 10/10.  

Marsh Medical Skin Clinic – Huddersfield

"In the short time that we have been using the 3JUVE the clinical results we have achieved have been outstanding, especially with the 585 IPL for broken veins and rosacea. The Er: YAG resurface handpiece has also been proving beneficial as it’s not too aggressive for our clients and they can remain comfortable whilst treatments are being carried out. Furthermore, for such impressive results we are blown away by how quick the actual treatments are which is maximising our profit-making potential through the 3JUVE treatments. Overall, we are delighted with our results so far and even more delighted with how happy our patients have been with their results."

Expansion of Premises to Facilitate Entry into Export Markets

To facilitate its entry into new export markets, Lynton Lasers Ltd required increased manufacturing space, as well as new demonstration and training facilities. To this end, LEADER Funding was applied for, and won, to support the refurbishment of an adjacent business unit (Unit 9d) as well as the re-arrangement and refurbishment of the existing business unit (Unit 6) on Holmes Chapel Business Park.

This Project was part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development
