Not all skin needling or micro needling courses are the same. Needling damaged skin is very different to facial needling for beauty or anti-ageing

To carry out dry tattooing treatments you:

  • Use a high speed digital tattoo machine
  • Permanent makeup needles
  • Not derma pen type needles
  • Use a needle depth up to 1.5mm

Dry Tattooing:

  • Is not scar camouflage using pigment
  • Is a natural method of smoothing an relaxing scars
  • Is a natural method of improving the colour of scar tissue
  • Is a natural method of filling, smoothing and tightening stretch marks

Dry Tattooing is the most precise and intense form of skin needling, which uses the same digital tattoo machine that might be used for permanent makeup

    Dry Tattooing

    My training concentrates on improving scars and stretch marks, with some focus on facial rejuvenation

    “The only person offering a comparable dry tattooing treatment with comparable results, will be someone trained by me” – Lisa Henning

    This course is designed to attract a brand new client base into your salon or clinic. It’s such a niche treatment; you’ll find it easy to attract new business once you’ve added it to your treatment menu

    I know from personal experience that since I’ve been able to show the fantastic results dry tattooing can achieve with scars and stretch marks I’ve attracted a whole new client base, one that probably wouldn’t have visited me for permanent makeup

    Dry Tattooing Machines

    Tattoo machines for Dry Tattooing need to hit the skin hard and cleanly.  If you're unsure if you machine is suitable a simple test is to see if you can stop the needle when putting pressure on it and running at a medium speed.  Try on practice skin.  If you can stop the needle, your machine is not suitable 

      What you'll get from this training course

      One to one training with me, Lisa Henning at my Manchester training studio, where I’ll assess you before, during and at the end of your training

      If you’ve attended workshop, you’ll be awarded a Certificate of Learning (theory and practice), and successful students of the training courses will be awarded a Diploma in Dry Tattooing – Improving Scars and Stretch Marks

      You’ll also get my course manual to take away with you and refer to

      During your training, I don't just teach you how to put a needle in the skin, I teach you what works best, what not so well, and how to have happy satisfied clients from day one

      Usually, with any newly learnt treatment, we as technicians have a few months experimenting on clients, experimenting how to explain the treatment, carry out the treatment, the aftercare and healing process

      During your training I'll already have explained much of the 'experimenting' information, so you'll have a good understanding of what to expect, and have my comprehensive training manual to refer to, plus as much phone, text and email support as you need

        Fantastic Training

        After recently training with Lisa in Dry Tattooing and also Saline Removal I can honestly say I was really impressed with both courses. Great structure to the courses and very informative. Lisa is excellent at explaining in detail, and is very patient if you have a thousand questions like myself Not only were the courses exceptional, Lisa is a great person who I got along with very well. After the course Lisa is always on hand to answer any questions and give guidance. The manuals provided by Lisa are also fantastic as they contain the whole course content so there’s no need to worry about forgetting anything as the manuals are great for jogging your memory. Highly Recommend!
