About me

Founded by Amanda Shayle over a decade ago, Acuregen is a training organisation and innovation-led product house with expertise in the field of cosmetic acupuncture and related treatments. These services are aimed at professional acupuncturists worldwide and we are now a formal education provider in the USA.

Since 2013, Amanda has also been able to develop Acuregen as a treatment brand due to the unique application potential of her special Thrive Intradermal needles. This has informed her techniques, skincare and professional product package. The ability to apply masks and LED Light Therapy directly over the needles has dramatically enhanced clinical results, particularly for ageing concerns, skin pathology and acne atrophic scarring.

Some Background:

Amanda, an acupuncturist, has been using intradermal needles to enhance collagen induction since 2005, but has been relying on standard acupuncture needles for her training and treatments only available in the current market place and these did not meet her specific clinical needs. Designed on the back of a beer mat in her local pub, she embarked on a project to produce a safe, easy-to-use and non-painful solution: The Thrive Intradermal Needle range. Launching in 2013 with self-funded investment for patent-pending and design protection including current registered designs in China, Japan, Korea, USA and Europe. Amanda Shayle is the first British woman to achieve this.

Thrive intradermal needles offer professionals a faster safer way to work with patients. Safety is of particular importance in the training environment but also as facial acupuncture does not always require long needles, particularly around the eyes - an area of potential accident risk. The short, flattened handles enable manual use plus the simultaneous application of adjunct treatment modalities, with enhanced clinical effectiveness.

Micro-needling using only a roller is inadequate for deeper lines and skin atrophy from acne scarring. Thrive needles go deeper and can be applied more specifically to induce collagen only where required. Three sizes are available enabling therapists to adapt for resistant skin and scars not treatable with rolling techniques or the 'dermapen'.

Other applications include paediatric, obstetrics, auricular acupuncture and post surgical scarring. Christie Foundation, Manchester have accepted their use - approving only short needles.

Previously the application of intradermal needles was time consuming with a high risk of them dropping into patient's hair and eyes - particularly in the training room. Identification of the size being used was difficult and supply was challenging. Also there was no safe solution for sensitive patients or areas with a high risk of bruising.

With the novel applications of these needles, Amanda has been invited to teach medical professionals internationally and present her new techniques, made possible by their features,. Patient experience is relaxing and now virtually bruise free.

Always good to get some sunlight - particularly without sunglasses. Cleans the blood which passes through your eyes (yes all your blood) over 24 hours!
