To ensure your safety, all procedures are performed solely through sterile, and aseptic techniques. Everything used, including the gloves, tools, clamps, needles, receiving tubes, etc., are sterile and disposable, and discarded after each use.
At True Expression we use jewelry surpassing those suggested by the standards of the Association of Professional Piercers becoming the highest jewelry available in the market. We use jewelry such as- but not limited to: ASTM F-138 / ISO 5832-1 compliant Steel, ASTM F-136 compliant Titanium, Solid 18 & 14 karat (or higher) nickel-free white or yellow Gold, Fused quartz Glass, lead-free borosilicate or lead-free soda-lime Glass Polymers.
Every room is equipped with top quality equipment including Statim Autoclave, steam cleaner, ultrasonic cleaner, and a sink. You witness all sterilization as it is performed in front of you, and you will also observe the handwashing of the piercer because "frequent and thorough handwashing is one of the most important actions a piercer can take".
Sterilization Indicator Strips, which are ran through the autocalve along with all equipment being used for the procedure, indicate that everything placed in the autocalve has reached full sterilization. Our autoclaves are spore tested weekly with mail away test packs from Mesa Labs which ensure the autoclaves are working as designated.
Safety is our top priority. We will walk you through the piercing process, and will answer all of your questions. Our goal is to make sure you are well informed, and assure that you leave with both a clean and healthy piercing including detailed written information of the jewelry applied and aftercare instructions.
