Let's take care of your new piercing together

Steps to follow to ensure better healing of your new piercing

The months following piercing are crucial to ensuring proper healing and preventing infections. Despite how common and casual it is to get a piercing, it's important to understand that each new piercing is essentially a wound. As in any trauma situation, post-procedure care is extremely important. Ignoring these precautions or using harmful products can prolong discomfort and the healing process.

Before you leave the studio, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. As we are experts, it is advisable to follow their guidelines closely until the piercing is completely healed. Even if you forget a step or miss the instructions, you can always contact us to receive a reminder. However, if you are truly lost, these rules serve as reliable guidelines to help any basic piercing heal.

How to clean your piercing

  1. Start by washing your hands well. Avoid introducing bacteria into the piercing, as it is an open wound susceptible to infections. Therefore, it is crucial not to touch the piercing or jewelry with your hands.

  2. Soak gauze in warm water and gently clean off any 'crust' that has formed around the puncture site, being careful not to tear it off and form a new wound. Avoid touching the scab directly. Discard the gauze after use.

  3. Apply a generous amount of neutral, unscented liquid soap to your fingertip and rub it over the piercing site and jewelry. Make sure you cover all areas, avoiding rotating the jewelry. Rotating the piercing can introduce bacteria from the jewelry into the wound, causing irritation or infection. Clean your piercing and jewelry thoroughly without moving them.

  4. Rinse the piercing and jewelry several times with warm water, making sure to remove all the soap.

  5. Dry the piercing with a clean paper towel and discard it.

  6. Apply a minimal amount of disinfectant two to three times a day.

Remember that consistency in care is essential for proper piercing healing.
