Microneedling Q & A

Why is microneedling part of aesthetic training at Lakeview Aesthetic School?

We prepare our students to master all the aesthetic treatments their clients and employers expect them to provide, and microneedling is an essential treatment. Microneedling is in high demand because it produces reliable results, and clients love their new, younger-looking skin.

Microneedling corrects a range of skin problems, including: 

  • Loose skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven or dull complexion
  • Brown spots and melasma
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores


Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy because it works by stimulating collagen production along with new skin growth. Here’s how it works.

During microneedling, you control a tool that contains many tiny needles. Depending on the type of device, you either roll the needles over your client’s skin or hold the device against their face, neck, or chest, and it quickly delivers the needles straight into their skin.

The tiny punctures created by the needles trigger a natural healing response. Part of that response is collagen production. Despite the way microneedling sounds, the technique leaves most of the skin intact, which limits bleeding, swelling, and pain. 

What should I expect during a microneedling course at Lakeview Aesthetic School? 

Like all the classes at Lakeview Aesthetic School, your microneedling training includes time in the classroom, followed by hands-on training in our med spa.

Elements of your comprehensive training include:

  • How microneedling improves each type of skin problem
  • Treatment guidelines and qualifying patients
  • How to communicate with clients and help them relax
  • Indications and contraindications of microneedling
  • Serums and topical products to use with microneedling
  • Proper techniques for using microneedling devices
  • How to prepare your client’s skin before microneedling


During your clinical training, you spend time in small groups, watching our staff experts demonstrate the microneedling process. Then you have the opportunity to perform microneedling on patients while receiving guidance from your instructor. This enables you to perfect your microneedling skills in a real-world setting, so when you graduate, you feel confident stepping into your new career as an aesthetician.

What sets the microneedling course at Lakeview Aesthetic School apart? 

When choosing an aesthetic school, it’s important to know that your course is comprehensive. Your training should prepare you to pass the Illinois State Licensing Exam and cover multiple types of aesthetic treatments along with microneedling, from laser treatments and microcurrent to facials and makeup. That’s what you get at Lakeview Aesthetic School.

We also offer flexible scheduling, teach business management skills, and provide job placement services, securing positions in the top spas before most students graduate.
