Not yet Beate, someday that will happen (of course we have been saying that for 43 years) The IBP was intended to replace the bare needle. In the process the tapered needle needed to be developed first. In the mean time, galvanic operators found out about them and have created a demand over the years. The taper is very important for galvanic to produce the optimal pattern. It needs to closley match the natural taper of the follicle to provide an equal contact pressure along it's length. This pattern is demonstrated in Dr. Schuster's "Thermolysis" DVD. The egg white provides the exact same pressure/resistance along it's length.

The company focus has always been thermolysis and blend to an extent. Our uninsulated tapered needles are but Probe "blanks" and are sold at their cost at that point in their manufacture.

They are available in all the standard sizes except the 4.5. We hadn't advertised them but if there's a call for uninsulated 4.5's I'd be glad to make them.

If anyone wants to talk to Erika about their own website It's Hammer Data Systems www.hammerdata.com. She has special deals for electrologists and knows this business well.

Josefa has been busy grin

Videos have been added to the web page of the egg white demonstration thanks to her determination. The egg white demonstration is easy to do but very difficult to capture on film. Bravo Josefa, bravo !! smile

Thanks Mike.

The truth is that this has been a very interesting and enlightening experiment. In my opinion, any student with a bit of concern should take place, in order to learn what is happening "down there" and how it affects "up there". Since I saw the DVD of Dr. Schuster I wanted to repeat this experiment for myself. Like him, I've tried to be thorough and objective, by using various probe types which you can find on the market. Different types of probe, different coagulation pattern. The intention was not to highlight some, or, discarding others, but confirm or refute his findings.

Seeing how the current acts in egg protein, you can get a rough idea of how the current acts in human tissue, and apply that information to the requirements of each case. For example, if all you need is to produce a heating pattern to destroy the follicle of a very dilated pore, or improve a small old scar, your best choice will be an uninsulated needle, because then you may affect the infundibulum, and the healing process will help provide a more uniform appearance to the skin.

If instead you face a high hair density case, where you must try many follicles close together, your choice might be an insulated probe, since as seen in the second video, the heat will reach much less the surface skin, and therefore the treatment will be more comfortable.

Although you can only see two videos, there were many more with different insertion depths, different thickness probe, etc.

In this test, I wanted to check the durability of the insulation layer in a Laurier IBP. To do this, I tested a virgin probe (.006 Medium), and another used for more than six hours in a woman's leg (the same size). This was the result:

As you can see in the second stage of the video, the insulation was still working.

For area's where laws do NOT state probes must be one time use, are most people using the Laurier IBP disposing them after one use or are they reusing them on the same person?

If they are reusing them (same person), are they sanitizing or actually sterilizing (autoclave) them in-between uses?

If one is using an autoclave, how many uses can one get out of the probe?

Feel free to comment your opinions or PM me.

As far as the autoclave is concerned, the IBP can be repeatedly dry heat or autoclave sterilized as many times as you want with no damage to the insulation.

I see over on facebook, Skip posted that Instantron is having a sale on the Laurier IBP

I've had quite a few requests, and it was suggested we put a pay per download printable brochure on our website for Laurier users to give to their clients. I asked Erika to whip something up for that and there is now a downloadable flier there at no charge for download in .pdf format.

I considered a tri-fold but we went with a single sided sheet to make printing it simple. May I suggest glossy paper for best results.

You all saw me rave about the work Erika Frankle and Hammer Data systems did with our website about a month and a half ago. When we brought it online we forgot to turn the stastic counter on so we lost 2 weeks of data. That would have covered the regulars here that had already seen our old page. The initial "surge" as it were, in the counts.

Well the April statistics just came in and she more than TRIPLED our traffic counts ! I cannot say enough about her work. If you're thinking about upgrading or starting your electrology related website, I can't reccomend her enough.

Distance is not a problem, we are the best part of a thousand miles apart. We spoke once on the telephone so she could get a "feel" for Laurier and myself and the rest was done through the e-mail.

I may not be on the top of her satisfied client list but I can promise you I'm on the first page for sure !

I was using an IBP 4.5 med. the other day with an approximate 85 degree bend. I needed to spin it a little so it would be in line with my cord and my position. Thinking I could just bend it over to where I would be comfortable the blade spun in its crimp. I have not had this happen before but I have not really tried to make it happen. I thought that it was pretty cool they way it did that. It really goes to show how well these probes are made. Any other two piece may have broken or may have gotten all twisted up and nasty. The blade spun in its crimp almost like it was designed to do it. I am not sure if it will do it with other IBP probes or if it was just a loose crimp but it was convenient and smooth.
