Scalpa Shine is a skin enhancing procedure done using the Scalpa Surface Pen paired with serums composed of semi-permanent tinted creams with beneficial ingredients. Using the Surface Pen, we will be injecting these serums into the upper layer of the skin creating an instant glowing effect that can last several weeks to several months, depending on amount of sessions. 


Benefits of Scalpa Shine: 

• Neutralizes free radicals 

• Restores even skin tone and radiant complexion 

• Reduces skin discoloration 

• Effective skin enhancement, skin tone and wrinkle improvement 

• Will not clog up your pores unlike applying makeup foundation or BB creams. 




We will also introduce microdermabrasion, LED Light Therapy, and how to make accelerating masks to either enhance your Scalpa Shine treatment or to be used on their own. We will begin the course by going into the Surface Pen and the needles that will be used with it.

Let's Talk Micro-Needling and the Invention of the Nano-Needle

Micro-needling is becoming one of the most popular and effective treatments used today for skin rejuvenation. With the popularity of Micro-needling and the ever-changing search for different skin procedures, the development of the Nano-Needle soon became. 


Similarities between Nano-needle and the Micro-needle… 

Both the Nano and Micro-needle treatments use a pen like device that oscillates a tip up and down to stimulate a skin reaction. They both induce cell turnover, serum infusion and provoke the healing process that results in skin transformation. 


The Micro-Needle 

This procedure uses an actual needle cartridge composed of 9-36 fine pins that can be adjusted to different depths. This allows the practitioner to use superficial settings such as, (.25mm) for delicate areas around the eyes or deeper depths (2.0-2.5 mm) for acne scars, wrinkles, and everything in between. The micro-injuries caused by the procedure stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production to promote skin rejuvenation. This procedure can also be effective for pigmentation, stretch marks and even hair loss. These treatments are done monthly, usually in a series of 3-6 treatments. 

The Nano-Needle

This procedure works a little differently. It uses the same type of oscillating motion to treat the skin, but the cartridge encompasses 81 silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. The Nano-needle only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment includes pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime. This treatment can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin.

Types of Needles

What Types of Needles Are Available for Micro-Needle and Nano-Needle?

Micro-needles come in different needle cartridges, ranging from 9, 12, 24, 36, Nano and more. Nine needle cartridges will treat fine lines. These are less invasive and give a more minimal result. Twelve needle cartridges are more effective and are suitable to treat all skin concerns, including fine lines, deep wrinkles, lax skin, stretch marks, cellulite, pigmentation, burn scars and post acne scars. 36 needle cartridges are more invasive and suitable to treat scars, large pores and deep wrinkles. Working with these needles can be very painful when used at deeper depth. In the case of a deeper depth, we advise you to numb the patient/client’s face prior to treatment. Needles 9, 12, 24, 36 all may be used for micro-needling, but with Scalpa Shine application we are going to be using the nano-needle cartridge. 

Nano-needles are very small (0.15mm in length and the thickness of a hair). This type of needle creates nano channels for transdermal delivery of active ingredients and are used to treat the upper layers of the epidermis. We will be using the Nano-needle for application of the Scalpa Shine serum, as we do not need to deliver the pigment into the deeper layers of the skin. 

NANO NEEDLE UPDATE: Throughout the course you may hear me on video or in text, refer to the needle depth when using a nano needle at 0.25 depth, but when using the nano needle it is fine and safe to use a deeper needle depth during the Scalpa Shine treatment. With the nano needle we can use slow to fast speed at a depth of 1- 3mm on round one, and on round two and three you might want to cut back to 1-1.5mm on sensitive skin.


In the case of Meso Whitening and delivering other types of Mesotherapy serums, we would use the Micro-needle technique. This training will be introduced in our Scalpa Micro-needle Course and our Advanced Training Course using the Mesotherapy Gun.
