Health protection is always a top priority in piercing and is becoming increasingly important. During piercing, the skin is injured through punctures, which is associated with an increased risk of infection. To prevent the spread of communicable diseases and to protect clients and piercers, particular focus must be placed on hygiene. In addition to surface disinfection of shelves and furniture, safe reprocessing of tools is of great importance. Small tools such as forceps, tweezers, needles and other accessories can be cleaned and chemically disinfected with an ultrasonic bath. The procedure ensures the effective removal of contaminants such as blood, saliva and skin flakes. Treatment in an ultrasonic bath is gentle on materials, saves time and is more economical in the long term than using disposable products.
Cleaning - Disinfection - Sterilisation
The use of an ultrasonic bath is recommended for cleaning the instruments. For example, the ultrasonic bath SONOREX RK 31 and the cleaning preparation TICKOPUR R 33 are optimally suited. After cleaning, the instruments are rinsed with tap water to remove residues of the cleaning agent and carefully dried. This is followed by disinfection with a suitable instrument disinfectant and finally sterilisation (e.g. steam sterilisation).
As an alternative, STAMMOPUR 24 can be used for cleaning and chemical disinfection.
