That’s all, just something I saw that I thought many of you may find interesting
It is interesting… however…
So you’re saying “We are Special!”.
I don’t suppose you’ve looked at the advantages of multiple cutting surfaces like the B&D system with 5(?) Different angled cuts on the needle tip?
I don’t know if it makes sense at larger sizes, compared to the 31g I am used to dealing with (worst are the 31g 4mm needles)
well thanks for both of these vids
as a bad-guy self installer, i break ALL the rules.
i have never tented. mainly because i don’t have anyone here who will help and i need my hand to shove it in.
for me, no matter which way i go, getting bevel up it gets caught and i have to overcome the skin AND my own brain telling me to stop.
bevel down, i tend to go too shallow and have to finagle the needle - which suuuucks. but it goes in smooth.
honestly, i have gone both ways and maybe im just a moron but mine dozen implants are mostly fine and diz-andy.
next one i will tent (some how) and go bevel down. let’s see how easy all this COULD have been
Small to medium sized binder clips?
I might just buy some cheap0 clamp from Amazon
Try looking at some Forceps or similar
Or you could make your own by wrapping a rubberband around the handles to keep them closed
Can confirm bevel up on my first implant took much more force and pulled the skin inside and left a nice red bump compared to bevel down.
“Most” people go bevel down, so are strong advocates for bevel up.
There has also been used a modified version.
Bevel Down to penetrate the skin, then rotate to bevel Up to control further insertion…
Standby for quote…
Wow, this had some activity while I wasn’t looking…
Thanks for the correction Amal, I just saw this and thought it was interesting, I didn’t remember of the top of my head what way we are usually supposed to do with ours.
