AFTERCARE

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR NEW PIERCING


Our approach to aftercare is safe, simple, gentle and aligned with your body's natural healing mechanisms. Please feel free to download our comprehensive aftercare brochure below.

AFTERCARE DO'S;

- Firstly, stay as healthy as you can! Eat well, sleep enough and drink plenty of water!

- ICE the piercing 5 times a day - 10 minutes at a time - for the first week and a half.

- AFTER icing period is over (swelling/ redness goes down) - create a WARM DRY compress (aka a heat pack) - to increase circulation and aid in healing the piercing - hold it gently to the piercing 10 minutes at a time - 5 times a day.

- Keep the piercing DRY - after showering - use a disposable PAPER TOWEL ONLY to bently pat around the edges of the piercing to pick up excess moisture.

- Use a travel pillow (U shaped pillow) to sleep with - this helps keep the piercing elevated and the pressure off the piercing - if it is a side you naturally want to sleep on.

- Finally, come in once a month has passed - so we can see if you piercing is healing well and happy and if need be look at downsizing to a more fitted bar.

AFTERCARE DON'TS; 

- DON'T twist, turn or pull on your piercing! - this can irritate or potentially introduce bad things to your piercing!

- DON'T take the jewellery out during the healing process - this will cause your piercing to close almost immediately!

- DON'T sleep on your piercing! - this can affect the healing (kinda like jumping on a sprainded ankle) or even change the angle of a piercing permanently.

- DON'T use harsh chemicals to clean the piercing - a simple shower with water running past or a fragrance free gentle liquid baby soap is enough! (Dr Bronners or Eco Store brand - no parabens or fragrences).
