Ballet Tapered Sizes A, B, C and Small and Medium Diameter Stainless (TAM) Needle Probes
Package of 50 needles
The Ballet “T” stainless needle is a tapered needle, based on Hinkel and St. Pierre’s classic blend needle. It has a very skinny shank, and a strongly tapered shaft. Micro-polishing is used to achieve Ballet’s unique point. Current intensity can be lowered and insertions are smooth, precise and comfortable.
Note: You will need a needle holder specifically designed to fit a tapered needle. If you have been using the “F” Shank Ballet or any 2-piece needle, then you will not be able to use the “T” shank Ballet needles unless you purchase a different needleholder.
The Ballet tapered stainless steel needle is sculpted from 18G nickel-chrome Swedish stainless steel – the steel used in fine surgical instruments. Treatment recommendations: The stainless steel needle is ideal for clients with strong, healthy skin, who respond well to electrolysis treatments.

Sizing: If you have used the traditional Hinkel-style needles in the past, you will be familiar with our sizing. There is no exact correlation to the sizing of F-shank and K-shank Ballet needles. A TA Small, for example, is for shallow, fine hairs. A TB Small is somewhat comparable to an F3 or K3. The TC Small and TC Medium should be reserved for the deepest insertions. Remember, the length of the needle is the same for all needles, only the length of the taper changes between “A”, “B” and “C” needles.
