GENERAL AFTERCARE

RIGHT AFTER YOU GET PIERCED

Getting your piercing done professionally is great But, especially the cartilage piercing requires extra care after getting it done for at least 6 months.

 

WASH YOUR HANDS FIRST

ALWAYS, CLEAN HANDS BEFORE TOUCHING YOUR PIERCING

Washing thoroughly with antibacterial soap ensures the protection  of dirt and oils from your fingers transferred to your piercing (which is an open wound), and potentially cause an infection.

CLEAN AT LEAST ONCE A DAY

IT IS A MUST

Dip a Q-Tip in an antibacterial foam from your antibacterial solution. Make sure that it has enough amount to be used on the area.

CLEAN AROUND THOROUGHLY

TRY MOVING THE PIERCING IN AND OUT

Doing this and very carefully on the mirror every day at least once assures that your piercing is germs free. Hair touching it and the biggest enemy is your phone.

SOAK WITH SEA SALT AND WATER

YOU MUST DO THIS STEP TO AVOID ALL COMPLICATIONS

Mix ¼ teaspoon of sea salt into 8 oz of mineral water. Take a piece of a cotton bud that would be appropriate to place on the piercing directly to cover the back and front of all sides. Hold it for 10-15 minutes at least:

- every day for the first week

- 3 days a week the second week

- once a week for the third and fourth week

  • Or buy a readymade sea-salt solution from the pharmacy.

BUY A READY MADE SEA SALT SOLUTION

NORMAL SALINE AT ANY PHARMACY

Take a piece of a cotton bud that would be appropriate to place on the piercing directly to cover the back and front of all sides. Hold it for 10-15 minutes at least:

- every day for the first week

- 3 days a week the second week

- once a week for the third and fourth week

BE CAREFUL YOUR PIERCING TAKES TIME TO HEAL

If you think that once you do the piercing everything will be ok, you are very wrong. Piercings, in general, take a good amount of time to heal and while they heal they need proper continous care especially the ear cartilage.

 

DON'T CHANGE 

AT LEAST 6 MONTHS

Keep the initial medical piercing because you wouldn't want the healing process to be interrupted during the first six months. We only use the best biocompatible material and it is not cheap to assure a safe complication free piercing.

DON'T TOUCH IT

OUR HANDS ARE NEVER BACTERIA FREE

The worst habit is touching your piercing, it is there and not going anywhere. The bacteria will be trapped inside the piercing and that will be a huge problem because the symptoms will not show till it is too late to discover. If you want to touch it just wash your hands thoroughly before.

DON'T APPLY OINTMENT

DON'T IMPROVISE ONLY DO THE RIGHT THING

Many people logically think that they will prevent the bacteria from forming or speed up the healing of piercing by applying ointment. This thought is absolutely false and will cause infection because first, it will speed up the healing which might grow excess skin around the piercing, secondly, the ointment is oil based so after the effect is gone they will act like a petroleum gel trapping the bacteria and causing infection.

BEWARE OF CLOTHES

MIGHT GET STUCK WITH FABRIC

Be very careful while you wear your clothes, and make sure that if you wear anything near the piercing it must clean on a daily basis. Hair is a very tricky reason as the hair has dust and airborne bacteria that will transmit to the fresh piercing and cause infection.

AVOID SHAMPOOING

SOME HAS HARMFUL CHEMICALS

Any alien chemicals touching the piercing will affect the healing process, try using on antibacterial mild soaps that will be gentle to the skin.

DONT SLEEP ON IT

WILL CAUSE IRRITATION 

You can accidentally bump touch the piercing while you are sleeping which is very normal, it's a must to watch out for your new piercing at the beginning of the healing phase, any deep movement may scratch the inside off your piercing hole which would cause irritation.

 

HEALING YOUR INFECTED OR REJECTED PIERCING

you must very careful to know exactly what is happening to your piercing, any false judgment followed by a false action will cause more complications.

HOW TO KNOW??

REDNESS SWELLING PUSS OR KELOID BUMP

- feel a great deal of pain

- see redness around it

ACCIDENTS HAPPEN

BE CAREFUL NOT HIT IT OR GET IT CAUGHT WITH CLOTHES

Accidents are meant to happen anytime anywhere that is normal, in case it happens and you felt discomfort or pain apply a cold towel compress to ease the pain and use sea salt soaks:

- every day for the first week

- 3 days a week the second week

- once a week for the third and fourth week
