Want to know more about our unique motorized microneedling device and would like some info before the seminar? Please fill out this quick form at This will let Amelia, Diana and Procell know that you want us to be your dedicated reps, with absolutely no pressure to purchase.

About Your Instructors:

Diana Horowitz, L.Ac. and Amelia Vargas, L.Ac. and Licensed Esthetician, discovered microneedling independently of each other in 2015 in Colorado. As facial rejuvenation acupuncturists both trained in The Wakefield Technique, they strongly shared a belief in supporting a patient's constitution during any aesthetic acupuncture process. After creating their own holistic integrative microneedling protocol, they developed and now teach in-person and online seminars to acupuncturists around the world. 

Diana and Amelia are strong advocates for the acupuncture profession, serving as Microneedling Co-Chairs for the Acupuncture Association of Colorado since 2016. Their purpose is to open the door of this primarily western cosmetic specialty to acupuncturists while honoring microneedling’s roots in Chinese medicine.

Please reach out to us at with any questions. We can’t wait to share the manifold benefits of integrative microneedling with you and your patients!


Here's the options:

A. FULLY ONLINE COURSE: take our online Integrative Microneedling for Acupuncturists certification course, which is the most comprehensive course of its kind - 11 CEU's, demos, chapter quizzes, adaptable downloads, etc. 

* It's bundled with a LIVE, ONLINE group practice session, where you'd perform our integrative microneedling protocol on a model, guided by us. The next group practice sessions are:  Wednesday, May 15th from 5:30pm - 7:00pm (MT) & Wednesday, Aug 7th 2024 from 5:30pm - 7:00pm (MT). 


* While we can't guarantee this, we doubt that you will need to interact with the school admin. We hope that you can spend the entire weekend with us, but totally understand if that does not feel comfortable to you. 

C. HYBRID: Take our online Integrative Microneedling for Acupuncturists certification course and then come practice with us on the second day of our seminar in Honolulu on July 14th! 

* While our online group practice sessions come close to what you'd experience in a live seminar, there's nothing like experiencing our holistic protocol with a procell device & products (that we will provide) in a classroom environment. 

* We'd ask that you finish the didadic part of the course before July 14th.
