EastWest Microneedling, LLC 

Integrative Microneedling for Acupuncturists 

  • An eastern and western perspective to this innovative modality that is exploding in the cosmetic industry.

  • A holistic protocol for dermarolling and motorized microneedling on the face and neck.  We’ll share benefits, contraindictions, pre and post care recommendations, effective and appropriate skincare products, device comparisons, treatment strategies, safety concerns, case studies and more.

  • The legalities, insurance, scope of practice and business marketing to navigate  a rapidly growing and changing field. We’ll provide all of the information you need to perform this healthy, effective and potentially lucrative specialty.

  • Due to the intensive hands-on nature of the material, we are limiting class size to 12 students, taught by Diana Horowitz, L.Ac., and assisted by Amelia Vargas, L.Ac. 

Pre-requisite: basic facial rejuvenation acupuncture certification of any style.

14  CEU's Pending NCCAOM approval

Diana Horowitz, L.Ac. and Amelia Vargas, L.Ac. and Licensed Esthetician, serendipitously discovered motorized microneedling independently of each other in 2015. As facial rejuvenation acupuncturists both trained in the Wakefield TechniqueTM, they strongly shared a belief in supporting a patient’s constitution during any facial rejuvenation acupuncture process. Through more than a year of experimentation, Diana and Amelia created their own holistic microneedling protocol to support the health of the skin and body/mind/spirit. In February 2016, they gained the support of the Acupuncture Association of Colorado in determining that microneedling is within an acupuncturists scope of practice, and became Microneedling Co-Chairs on the AAC’s Board of Directors.  

Their purpose in creating this seminar is to open the door of this primarily western cosmetic practice to acupuncturists while honoring microneedling’s roots in Chinese medicine. They would love to share the knowledge and experience they’ve gained on their microneedling journey with you.
