28G lancets ok to use for CROSSing?

The 28 gauge lancets are all I can find - are these ok to use for the CROSS?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe that what you mentioned is a type of needle.

Do NOT use any type of needle to perform TCA CROSS.

Buy some cocktail sticks/toothpicks and sharpen them if your scars are very small.

Really???

LoL I have been using toothpicks actually. :cool:

The reason I asked is because alot of people use lancets (from what I've read on this board).

A lot of people on this board use lancets for TCA CROSS?

I haven't come across any... although some who have never tried the procedure before, mention the idea of using a needle and they're quickly told to not use it, and use a "sharpened wooden applicator" instead.

The wooden applicator soaks up the TCA and distributes the acid into the scar.

A needle can't do that and it can damage the skin easily.
