Butterfly needles, or scalp vein sets, are used in medical and aesthetic practices for both extraction and infusion procedures. Unlike regular hypodermic needles, butterfly needles have plastic wings on each side that allow you to access superficial veins and secure the needle in position.
The 23 Gauge is on the fairly large side of intravenous injections. When it comes to superficial veins close to the outer layer of the skin, it’s large enough to target the bigger veins and procure larger blood samples efficiently. Each box of butterfly needles you order gives you a set of 100 butterfly needles.
FACE Med Store offers medical-grade products used by medical and aesthetic practices looking to improve their operating costs by shopping quality supplies at competitive costs. For other blood extraction tools, check out other products in our online store:
For blood extractions, hold the “wings” of the butterfly needle with your index finger and thumb for better accuracy. Insert the hypodermic needle at a shallow angle until a small amount of blood sample starts filling the transparent tube.
For injecting medication, place the fluids in a syringe connected at the top of the butterfly needle. Insert the intravenous needle into a patient’s superficial vein and then press down the plunger to deliver the medication.
Butterfly needles are for single use only. After the extraction or infusion process, cap the needle and dispose of the entire blood collection set properly according to your local guidelines.
