Needle loading

The last stage of your preparation is to load your needle into the Sterex Needle Holder.

HOW TO LOAD A TWO-PIECE ELECTROLYSIS NEEDLE

  1. Place a sterile chuck cap on the brass chuck of the needle holder and gently twist until the cap is halfway down.
  2. Tear open the needle sachet and remove the needle holding it by its plastic safety cap.
  3. Place the exposed needle shank into the chuck cap and position it until it’s just proud of the chuck cap opening. 
  4. When the needle is positioned, firmly tighten the chuck cap to secure the needle.
  5. Firmly twist and pull the plastic covering to remove.

  2. Carefully tear off, a needle from the blister pack and open the sachet by peeling the paper side halfway back.
  3. Cautiously insert the needle shank through the loosened chuck cap into the needle holder, tip the needle upright so it falls gently into the chuck cap opening.

HOW TO REMOVE AN ELECTROLYSIS NEEDLE

Your needle should be removed immediately after the treatment. 

  1. Still wearing gloves, loosen the chuck cap.
  2. Position the needle holder over the ready opened sharps box and gently tap the needle holder so the needle falls into the box.
  3. If the needle doesn’t fall out easily, carefully remove the chuck cap, grasp the shank with tweezers and pull the needle out, then place directly into the sharps box.
