Piercing Aftercare

WHAT IS NORMAL?

– Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, or bruising.

– During Healing: some discoloration, itching & secretions of whitish-yellow fluid (not puss) that will form some crust on the jewellery.

Once Healed: the jewellery may not move freely in the piercing: DO NOT force it! If you fail to include cleaning your piercing as a part of your daily hygiene routine, normal but smelly bodily secretions may accumulate.

– A piercing may seem healed before healing is complete. This is because piercings heal from the outside in, and although it feels healed, the tissue remains fragile on the inside. BE PATIENT, and keep cleaning throughout the healing period.

JEWELLERY

Longer Jewellery was used to accommodate for the possible swelling of your new piercing . Once the swelling has subsided, you may choose to replace the original, longer jewellery with a shorter post.

– With clean hands or paper product, be sure to regularly check threaded ends on your jewellery for tightness (Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey)

Should you decide you no longer want the piercing, continue cleaning the piercing until the hole has closed. In most cases only a small indentation will remain  

BODY PIERCING

WASH YOUR HANDS!
thoroughly prior to cleaning, or touching on OR NEAR your piercing for any reason.

Using a sterile saline solution gently clean your piercing to remove any secretions that may have built up around the entrance and exit holes.  Repeat as needed.
Leave jewellery in at all times. Even old well-healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years! If removed re-insertions can be difficult.

  • Avoid trauma such as friction from clothing, excessive motion of the area, playing with the jewellery and vigorous cleaning. These activities can cause the formation of unsightly and uncomfortable scar tissue, migration, prolonged healing and other complication.
  • Avoid the use of alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, bedadine, hibiclean or ointment.
  • Avoid over cleaning. This can delay your healing and irritate your piercing.
  • Avoid all oral contact, rough play and contact with others bodily fluids on or near your piercing.
  • Avoid stress and recreational drug use including excessive caffeine, nicotine and alcohol.
  • Avoid submerging the piercing in bodies of water such as lakes, pools, Jacuzzi, etc.
  • Avoid all beauty and personal care products on or around the piercing including cosmetics. Lotions and sprays etc.

ORAL PIERCING

!! Oral Piercing Aftercare !!

Rinse mouth with a salt water cleaning solution for 30-60 seconds after anything goes in your mouth (food, cigarettes, beverages)  during the entire healing period.

Over cleaning may cause discoloration or irritation of tongue.

EATING

Avoid eating spicy, salty, acidic or hot temperature foods or beverages for a few days. Cold foods and beverages are soothing and help reduce swelling. For tongue piercing try to keep your tongue level in your mouth as your chew and swallow. For labret (cheek and lip) piercings: Be cautious about opening your mouth too wide as this can result in the backing of the jewellery catching on the teeth.

**JEWELLERY**

– Dermal anchor jewellery is exactly that!! ANCHORED you cannot remove the base from your skin and put it back in again like a regular piercing. You can change the tops or beads however but it is best to have it done by a piercer who has the tools to grip the beads properly.
