About ALTRA SL-TYPE Needles
Altra® SL-TYPE Needles are Silicone Free Silver Wound Handle Needles.The body of most Acupuncture Needles are coated in a thin layer of silicone. Silicone is commonly used to smooth over microscopic imperfections in the surface of the needle, allowing for easier and pain reduced insertion & removal. The downside is that some patients may have silicone sensitivity which can result in skin irritation.
They are available both with and without guide-tubes and in either individual guide-tubes or 5-in-1 guide-tube needle clusters.
