Filiform Needles

Filiform needles are not hollow like hypodermic needles used to draw blood and give injections. Acupuncture needles (~0.2 mm diameter) are on average only one quarter the thickness of the average hypodermic needle (0.82 mm diameter) used to draw blood for tests. Their design permits efficient sliding through tissues and makes them unlikely to cause bleeding or damage to underlying structures like hypodermic needles which have a cutting edge designed to cut through tissue. Insertion of acupuncture needles feels like a mosquito bite, which is hardly perceptible. Any initial discomfort disappears after the needle has been inserted.
