"It has been 1 month since the lecture. I bought the AcuMicro Plus and serums kit to use at my clinic. It has already paid for itself twice over! I already have 7 patients signed up for monthly Microneedling packages. I can't believe more Acupuncturists don't know they can easily incorporate this into their practice and bring in a whole new demographic. Great information, great class!"   - Megan R.

The demand for microneedling continues to grow as more people are discovering it to be a safer and more effective alternative to lasers and chemical peels. 

About Microneedling

What is it?

Microneedling therapy, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of the MD Needle Pen.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled "injury" at a specific depth. 

Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.

With microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged—leaving the skin intact. 

It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. 

The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.

Microneedling results improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
AcuMicro is a medical grade microneedling pen designed for safe and effective treatments. The integrated aluminum alloy body was ergonomically designed for comfort and ease of use.

Adjustable needle depth – 0.25mm – 2.5mm Adjustable Speed- 3000 – 10,000 rpm.  One year replacement warranty comes with 2 Replaceable Batteries and 2 Free 12-Pin Needle Tips

Microneedling Combination Procedures

Microneedling can be used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid and other serums to hydrate and heal the skin.  
The micro-channels created by the needles allow for deeper penetration of topical serums for more effective results. This procedure can increase the skins ability to utilize the nutrients by up to 3,000%.
Combine microneedling with the bodies own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and kick start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro wounds is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in the PRP. Studies have shown skin rejuvenation with the PRP combination procedure.

The Result of Microneedling?

In the present study, clinical evaluation of patients showed statistically significant overall improvement of post acne atrophic scars, skin texture and patient satisfaction in response to skin microneedling treatment compared to baseline.

Skin microneedling therapy showed a favorable effect on enhancing collagen formation, increase of epidermal thickening and newly synthesized tropoelastin, the precursor to elastin. The statistically significant increase occurred three months after starting treatment.

Also Learn About Nanoneedling!

Both the nanoneedling and microneedling 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.

However, nanoneedling works a little different. It does use 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.  

So unlike microneedling, nanoneedling does NOT pierce the skin.  It only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15 mm of the skin. 

The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this workshop include a certificate?
Yes, you'll receive a certificate plus 20% off of AcuMicro products for life!
Are we being trained in using a machine like the Dermapen microneedling system ?
Yes, the live workshop includes hands-on training with a microneedling pen system—a Class 2 medical device. According to insurance and the Acupuncture board, it is in our scope of practice to learn and use this device.
What kind of products/equipment will be available for purchase?
Everything from AcuMicro will be available for purchase the day of the workshop for 40% off! Please review the site before the workshop to get an idea of products and pricing. We will be learning and training with all the products and serums from the website and will be learning how to make our own TCM topical formulas to use as well.
If I'm currently a student but not a licensed acupuncturist, can I still take this workshop?
Yes, this workshop is for acupuncturists AND students!  As students you can legally do nanoneedling while still in school. Nanoneedling uses the same AcuMicro pen as microneedling but has a tip that does NOT puncture the skin. As an acupuncturist taking the course you must provide your own insurance (and send a copy). As a student, you are covered by your school and must provide a student ID card. Please take note that while nanoneedling has no restrictions and students may practice modality; I do not recommend doing so without first looking into malpractice insurance.
What is the maximum capacity for the live workshop?
We try to keep these classes small to allow as much one-on-one time as possible. Classes vary between 16-30 people.   For larger classes, there will be assistants to ensure that you get the proper attention throughout the workshop.
Do we need to purchase or bring anything for this workshop?
No, just lunch for yourself! All products, topicals, and devices will be provided for the workshop. Products used during treatments are included in your cost for attending the workshop.
Can estheticians do this treatment?
Not in California unfortunately, due to the fact that this procedure pierces the skin. In 2018, California decided that estheticians can no longer do this procedure. In response, there is a large opening for acupuncturists, nurses and MD’s to provide this service!
How much can I charge for this treatment in my practice?
Acupuncturists typically charge between $650 on average for this treatment. This is based on averages found on Treatments typically take between 20-40 minutes to complete.
Are there any discounts for the workshop?
For each person that signs up from you, you get a $100 gift certificate to This goes a long way on the day of the live workshop since all participants receive 40% off all products from!
I've seen these pens at Walmart. What are the differences?
Be very very careful when buying a pen from an outside source. This is a Class 2 medical device and should NOT be sold to the general public. There are many companies making cheap replicas of these pens which many of them do not oscillate and simply vibrate to allow estheticians to still legally (not ethically) use them.

Be very wary if a company does not ask for your professional license or student status. We are sponsored by AcuMicro and I personally like their pens, pricing, and warranties. We will go over and show different pens in the workshop. There is no pressure to buy from AcuMicro. We simply want you to have all the information to make the safest and best educated decision to incorporate microneedling into your practice.
How does this differ from Dermarolling? Will Dermarolling be covered in the workshop?
We will be going over the differences in the class but in short, using a microneedling pen differs greatly from Dermarolling. Rolling creates wells in the skin and can be done by patients at home. Microneedling is a treatment that must be performed by a licensed professional. It creates direct channels in the skin and has exponentially greater results.
What kind of treatments will we be learning using Microneedling ?
We will be learning how to treat wrinkles, acne, sagging skin, age spots, scarring, and hair regeneration, and more!
Will this workshop incorporate TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)?
Yes, we will go over TCM principals of Microneedling.  We'll also be going over facial rejuvenation herbal topicals (A TCM herbal facial rejuvenation Microneedling spray and a TCM herbal hair rejuvenation topical).
