    • To practice microneedling, you MUST use the AcuLift MicroPen. Michelle will have a few microneedle pens on hand for students to try, but, to maximize your practice time, you will want to bring your own AcuLift MicroPen (also available at AcuLift Skincare, register for a wholesale partner account to purchase). Not available in Canada.
