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

14 / 10 / 2024 to 13 / 11 / 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.

Thank you for my training on the new EPN Microneedling system. I’ve been looking for over a year for a device as I’ve tried lots of different Microneedling devices before. This one did not disappoint. It’s very easy to use and the fact it’s a deeper more effective treatment is what sold it for me. I’m loving the results after the first treatment, I know it will be very popular in my clinic. The training was very detailed and explained everything about the device and the treatment. Any questions I had, I got a response in less than 24hours. Everyone has been amazing. I’ve been with Lynton for over 7 years now and they definitely don’t disappoint. Their customer service and training are very high standard, along with all the equipment they provide.

Customer Testimonials

I just wanted to extend to Lyntons my heartfelt thanks for the Covid-19 payment holiday scheme on service cover and your webinars relating to risk assessment etc. A very kind gesture of support and I will highly recommend Lyntons to anyone in the future."

Bente Rowe, Harrogate Health & Beauty

The treatment was fantastic. It was virtually pain-free and I really enjoyed it.

Tusi Pisi, International Rugby Player

“I have spoken with Rhiannon on a number of occasions when I’ve phone through to the clinical support team. Again, she was excellent and helped me with my queries. I was able to run my treatment plans past her and get some really helpful feedback – it’s very reassuring to be able to pick up the phone just to sanity check yourself, especially with a new device. I even called her 10 minutes before treatment with a little wobble and she was very reassuring.”

Nikki Butler, Medical Tattooist and Skin Specialist, Nikki Butler Skin Clinic

I started using ProMax Lipo around 2 years ago, and I haven't looked back. ProMax Lipo was my business as this was the only treatment, I did but since then have been able to progress to a salon and base other treatments around ProMax. The machine is so easy to use but gives amazing results; a definite must-have for any salon.  

Ellie Gallagher

Our clients love the Lynton. We are able to get exceptional fading without the increased risk of skin damage due to the flat top square beam profile. Clients heal really quickly and we have had zero incidence of textural change to the skin. The machine has proven to be extremely impressive and very user-friendly.


Lynton, after all the stress I have had this week since we have been closed you are one of the companies that have supported my business in helping my financial situation, in giving me some months off my service contract. Your company and staff are just great, customer service is excellent. If anyone is thinking of getting a laser machine when all this madness has gone, Lynton Lasers are a great company with medical grade machines and very high standards of training. Customer service is 5 stars! Thank you so much!

The Rose Spa

I have done 6 blepharoplasty in the last two weeks and the results are unbelievable with reduction of swelling and bruising - I am loving it and the patients too.  I saw my 4th patient today to remove her sutures! I cant believe how little edema and bruising she has. I will never go back to the scalpel again!"  

Mr Ali Ghanem, Medical Director, Ghanem Clinic London - Bahrain and Cranley Clinic

"Here at Sandon Court Clinic, Plymouth, we have been using the Lynton 3JUVE system and we have achieved some outstanding results for our clients. Lynton obtains a high standard of customer service and always provides tailored informative training, so we can provide the best-tailored treatments for our clients."

Sandon Court Clinic Plymouth

It achieves what CO2 was meant to do, which is tightening fine lines, fixing overall sun damage and improving skin tone—and it does it while minimizing heat trauma with CoolPeel. What’s unique to CoolPeel is the pulse duration and delivery wave of the pulses. This maximizes ablation and minimizes heat distribution—which is what ultimately prolongs downtime and risk. The entire system is customized and optimized for easy use and predictability, with low, medium and high settings.

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, Chief Medical Officer and Founder of the PFRANKMD™ Brand, pfrank MD by Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank

“It’s really amazing what you did and continue to do. I could not have got through lockdown without the support from Lynton, including the many webinars and zooms, just brilliant! I also loved meeting other amazing clinics owners and therapists too!”

Andrea Davies, Clinic 10

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
