Profit from an Expert’s Wealth of Knowledge:

Microneedling is gaining popularity as a fundamental treatment modality in Aesthetic Medicine due to its safety profile in all skin types, as well as being affordable and effective. However, as with any treatment, there are risks involved (some severe), and while rare, it is important that the practitioner be aware of these in order to minimize adverse outcomes and provide relevant information to the patient to facilitate informed consent.

Pitfalls in Microneedling include:

  • • Lack of training – you should not learn by default (your fault)
  • • Inappropriate patient selection
  • • Inappropriate product selection (both active and inactive ingredients)
  • • Inappropriate device selection and treatment technique
  • • Inappropriate post-treatment care
  • • Failure to instruct the patient re the use of photosensitizers
  • • Inappropriate frequency of treatment
  • • Failure to stay within scope of practice

Keys to Success:

  • • Establishing underlying cause of diagnosis
  • • Correct selection of needle length and product ingredients
  • • Timing of treatments and home care protocols
  • • Combining synergistic treatments

Thank you, Doc Setterfield, for an incredible day of moving forward with serious results whilst preserving skin’s structure. Sincerest appreciation & heartfelt gratitude.

I wanted to convey a huge thank you to Dr. Setterfield for his class on rolling in Vegas. The information on wound healing and growth factors, and how to support skin rejuvenation via rolling and supportive therapies was outstanding and very forward thinking. I thank him for being so approachable and humble in his knowledge that will no doubt change the entire industry. If you haven’t taken one of his classes, I urge you to check for future possibilities.

- Vegas, Workshop

Dr Setterfield wrote what has become the industry bible on microneedling. He is a very personable instructor, and I promise you will never learn so much in such a short time. If you aren’t doing microneedling yet, you will be. Or your competitors will.

- Vancouver, WA, Workshop

I hope you will get your training from Doctor Setterfield because it will save you from so many issues…you may find other training cheaper, but you will pay for it in other ways in the long run. It is well worth it and you will be ahead of your competition with his training.

- Texas, Online Course

In my opinion, if anyone is considering adding needling to their practice, this needling class is an absolute must. If you think you know about needling, once you take this class you will realize that there is so much more you needed to learn. I came away with a greater understanding of how the skin works and what we must do to preserve the health of our clients’ skin. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to also purchase your book! Thank you, Dr. Setterfield, for taking the time to travel and to share your knowledge with the rest of us.
