Blade Removers

The Swann-Morton Blade Remover allows for safe and easy removal of all sizes of scalpel blade from both No.3 and No.4 handles and is now used extensively within UK Hospitals to assist with sharps injury reduction amongst staff.

Supplied sterile it allows the device to be included on the instrument tray within the OT and to be used at the site of the invasive procedure. The transparent nature of the material allows for 100% accountability of the blades that have been used during the surgical procedure, each one safely encapsulated within an individual remover which may then be disposed of in an appropriate sharps bin or container.

Product Showcase

New to the range for 2018 and commonly referred to as the "butter blade" the 10R can be used in Aesthetic procedures such as "Dermaplaning" which helps to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping which exfoliates the epidermis.

Shorter and more rounded than the 14 it is ideal for getting into smaller more restricted areas of the face and the rounded (bull nose) tip prevents any accidental snagging or scratching thus providing a more effective and consistent finish.

Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face and can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or fluorescent pulsed light (FPL). Dermaplaning, when performed prior to other treatments, can remove the peach fuzz which can trap excess dirt and oil.
