“As an acupuncturist and scar specialist, I am always looking to increase my options for helping people on their healing journey. This course not only gave me a greater depth of cosmetic knowledge, but also gave me more tools in my scar therapy toolbox. Thanks again to Chris for sharing his insights and in-depth knowledge on the subject.

I really enjoyed the course must also thank Michelle for all her work behind the scenes organising and obtaining extra equipment.”

Derma Pen is a motorised electrical device using a multiple needle head to quickly puncture the skin with specific depths and allows the creation of even puncture channels which do not create excess inflammation or scar tissue. Derma Rollers are a single use roller with needles which roll across the skin. Whilst derma roller is often used on the body it is sometimes used for facial treatments, which due to the puncture pattern of the roller and variations by the user can, over time, cause scar tissue when used on the thinner, more sensitive areas such as facial tissue. Rollers are a fixed length and therefore also not suitable for areas where the geography of the body needs different lengths of needle such as the face and head.
