FreeStyle Libre Sensor Application

If you’re wondering how the Libre sensor is applied, I made this video showing how it works.

The applicator is like a stamp that fires it into the skin and sticks the adhesive in one action. The application looks much friendlier than the Dexcom, and isn’t particularly painful.

Also check out this post which sums up my experience using the Libre for 8 weeks.


  1. Hi there, thanks for the video, do you have to use a new applicator every time or is any of it re-useable?


    1. There’s a new applicator included with each sensor, so I haven’t tried using an old applicator.
