Sterilisation & Processing
Body Jewellery and piercing equipment are sterilised in Medical grade Autoclaves, which are tested daily onsite and biologically monthly by a third party laboratory.
Everything is sterilised after first being cleaned thoroughly in designated ultrasonic cleaning machines. Sterilised Jewellery and equipment are stored in vacuum sealed pouches or are transported into the procedure room via portable tray directly from our autoclaves.
Piercing consumables and procedure technique
We use the highest quality needles made specifically for piercing, single use and discarded of immediately after piercing. All other procedure consumables, such as gauze, skin marking implements, dressings, cotton swabs and topical skin prep packs such as chlorhexidine, iodine and saline swabs are all completely sterile and single use.
Piercings are preformed using an aseptic technique, meaning we do not touch anything that is outside of the sterile field and have implemented things such as a no touch bin, hydraulic foot operated bed, hands free wash basins and sterilisers uniquely equipped with portable tray so asepsis can be maintained throughout.
The studio is equipped with UV sterilisers on every floor.
Our piercing procedure room has the added benefit of HEPA air filtration, as does our dedicated sterilization and processing room.
