The American Electrology Association (AEA) with the assistance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) developed national Infection Control Standards which include sterilization of all electrology instruments. I use pre-sterilized disposable probes for every treatment and sterilize all instruments using Dry Heat sterilization. If you are currently receiving electrolysis, be sure to verify the operator is using a method of sterilization approved by the department of Health. Universal precautions also dictate strict hand-washing and use of a fresh pair of disposable gloves for each patient.
