Dr Lorenzo Andaloro’s Podology Studio only uses sterile or single-use instruments.
The priority of every podology treatment and operation must be to sanitise and sterilise both the work surfaces and the instruments.
The instrumentation is cleaned with an ultrasonic process in order to eliminate all residues on instruments and to launch a first disinfection process. After thorough cleaning and disinfection, the instrument will be wrapped so that it does not come into contact with the external environment and is then STERILISED by an autoclave, which eliminates microorganisms by denaturing their proteins and other biomolecules.
Autoclave sterilisation is the most widespread method, as it is inexpensive and non-toxic and has a good penetration capacity.
Sterilisation consists of any chemical or physical process that leads to the elimination of any living microbial form, both pathogenic and not, including spores and fungi.
A material is considered sterile if the SAL (sterility safety level) is less than 10-6, i.e. when the probability of finding a microorganism is less than one in a million.
