Piercing Aftercare is very important. Many people do not have any idea how to take care of their new piercing once they leave their appointment. So we created a video that explains just that.
We know there is a lot of information and it can be overwhelming so we hope this will alleviate any of the confusion and get right to the point.
This covers the basics and will keep your new and existing piercing clean and safe.
Please keep in mind that there might be additional steps your piercer suggests due to the type of piercing.
And as always remember we are not doctors. So if there is something abnormal going on don't hesitate to reach out to your piercer or your doctor for additional information.
So let's get started !!
1- WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing for any reason.
2- SALINE rinse as needed during healing. For certain placements it may be easier to apply using clean gauze saturated with saline solution. A brief rinse afterward will remove any residue.
If your piercer suggests using soap, gently lather around the piercing and rinse as needed. Avoid using harsh soaps, or soaps with dyes, fragrances.
3- RINSE thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. It is not necessary to rotate the jewelry through the piercing.
4- DRY by gently patting with clean, disposable paper products because cloth towels can harbor bacteria and snag on jewelry, causing injury.
