Cosmetic Dry Needling Course onlineRegular price £150.00
Cosmetic dry needling involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines wrinkles, sagging, scars and other signs of ageing. Dry needling differs from acupuncture in that no previous knowledge of point location or Chinese medicine theory is required to perform it.

Compared to the traditional Holistic cosmetic acupuncture course new sections have been added to better explain the current scientific understanding of the way cosmetic acupuncture works and more detailed diagrams and explanations of how to use distal points and other cosmetic specific acupuncture points without preexisting knowledge of Traditional Chinese medicine.

What does dry needling do on the face?
Cosmetically dry needling is usually applied using the threading technique to pass under fine wrinkles. This helps induce natural collagen induction below the wrinkle and separate the healthy collagen reducing depression of the wrinkles. It can also benefit scar tissue and skin sagging.
Cosmetic Dry Needling Benefits
The key benefits of cosmetic dry needling are:
- Increases natural collagen induction
- Lifts sunken scars and depressed wrinkles through the subcision process
- Lifts sagging and drooping skin
- Reduces swelling and fluid retention in the face
- Improves lymphatic drainage
- Stimulate microcirculation and improve facial complexion
Who can perform dry needling?
This depends on the regulations in an individual country or jurisdiction. In general, it can be performed by medical doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, chiropractors, many aestheticians and beauty therapists and massage therapists.
Please note it is beyond the scope of these cosmetic dry needling classes to teach dry needling from scratch and the course is best suited to practitioners who already practice dry needling and want to add cosmetic dry needling to their clinic or salon.
For practitioners who currently practice dry needling but wish to add it to their clinics, they should first check with their insurers to be sure their qualifications allow them to perform dry needling. In some cases they may need to take a physic dry needling course, remedial massage dry needling course, chiropractor and dry needling course or dry needling short course for beauticians and aestheticians course.
These must usually be attended in-person to obtain insurance for dry needling and on average last between 60-80 hours.
