Amiea customers please note, due to a manufacturing bottleneck some needle configurations are either not available or in very short supply this is affects the following needles;
3 Slope - No Supply
5 Slope - Limited or no supply
4 Flat - Heavy demand and limited or no supply
NB. The supply issues affect all distribution channels for the manufacturer MT.Derm.
I have frequently condemned 'shortcut' training programs that inappropriately teach students to use one or two needle configurations for all services as it leads to a lack of flexibility and competence for the technician.
The current situation highlights the importance of undergoing comprehensive training with a master trainer such as myself to ensure that technicians have a thorough knowledge of the full needle range so that a simple transition to alternative needles can be made when one or two configurations are not available.
We are in regular contact with the manufacturer and have back orders in place ready to be filled as soon as the manufacturer sorts out their supply issues. We will provide further updates as information comes to hand.
