                                                                     AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

TO CLEAN;

  • Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after cleaning your piercing.

  • Spray once or twice a day front and back with a sterile saline spray (available instore).

  • Use a piece of non-woven gauze or folded paper towel to gently remove any debris.

  • Gently dry the area with clean paper towels.  This is very important, do not leave your piercings damp.

  • Try to clean and dry your piercings in a clockwise direction to prevent the end unscrewing.

  • It is important not to rotate or remove your jewellery during the cleaning process.

  • Keep the area free from products; (make up, hairspray, etc).

  • Always rinse your piercing thoroughly with clean water after washing your hair or showering to ensure there is no soap residue on
    the piercing and dry with a paper towel.

 

ORAL PIERCINGS;

  • Rinse with clean water after eating, drinking or smoking.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Practice good oral hygiene.
     

NAVEL & NIPPLE PIERCINGS;

  • Keep the area covered with a medical dressing for the first week to minimise friction with clothing, changing once a day.
     

GENERAL AFTERCARE;

  • Avoid swimming, saunas or hot tubs for the first 2-3 weeks.

  • Do not sleep on the area.

  • Do not fiddle with your piercing.

  • Keep items that come into contact with your piercing clean – headphones, mobiles, glasses etc.

  • It is important that you check that your jewellery is secure on a regular basis.  Threaded ends tighten to the right.

  • A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. Although it may look healed from the outside the inside 
    channel is still healing, cleaning and care is needed constantly for the first 3 months. Be patient, piercings take a minimum of 6 months to heal but it can be 12-18 depending on the area.

  • Most piercings are pierced with a longer bar to accommodate any swelling.  An important part of the healing process is swapping the bar for a shorter one after around 4-6 weeks.  This helps to prevent issues caused by wearing incorrect jewellery after any swelling has subsided.  It is important that this is done by a professional with the correct jewellery.  Your piercer will give you advice on this as it depends on the piercing.  It is important that you follow this and please check with us before changing your initial jewellery.  Downsizing does incur a charge.

  • Once healed you will still need to clean your piercing weekly to remove any dead skin, makeup and products.
