Medical Microneedling

Overview

Enhance your patient’s injectable results with medical microneedling – a non-surgical treatment which can reduce the need for dermal filler by stimulating new collagen/elastin production.

Medical Microneedling is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretching), scarring (acne, surgical), hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and hair loss. Medical Microneedling technology uses Health Canada & FDA approved devices which offer very fine, surgical-grade sterile needles to create micro-channels up to 2.0mm in the dermis to stimulate new collagen/elastin production. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients.

This online course introduces you to Medical Microneedling treatments and other non-surgical facial rejuvenation technologies. Dr. Roberts reviews patient records, clinical applications and post-op instructions. Attendees then complete their training with a live hands-on session. An online syllabus is provided.

FAQ

 

What are the benefits of medical microneedling treatment?
Medical microneedling uses an automated device to increase the absorption of cosmeceutical solutions by 3,000 times. The treatment can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenate skin with comprehensive improvement of skin tone and texture, minimize stretch marks, restore youth by effectively tightening, lifting and thickening the skin, improve the appearance of scars, reduce pore size and can deliver visible results painlessly and safely with little to no down time.
What does a typical microneedling session cost? How many sessions will a patient require?
A typical medical microneedling treatment costs the patient $499. In the beginning, three to six treatments are recommended, and then on-going sessions every month (or as recommended) for maintenance.
What are the requirements for the microneedling hands-on?
Each attendee is responsible for providing a minimum of one patient model for the microneedling hands-on session. A professional courtesy of $225 is provided for each model having treatment.
What sort of revenue opportunity for my practice does microneedling provide?
After training, your initial investment for a Health Canada approved medical microneedling device is approximately $4,615. This includes the InnoPen microneedling pen device, as well as the consumables for 10 treatments. We recommended each treatment be billed out at $499. The cost for consumables is approximately $80 per treatment, plus labour. Your overall investment can be paid for in less than 13 treatments.
Can a physician or dentist delegate treatment to a staff member?
Yes, however treatment must be provided by a qualified medical, dental or qualified skin therapist, including aestheticians.
