Septum or ear lobe – 4 to 6 weeks
Eyebrow – 6 to 8 weeks
Nostril, cartilage, or tragus – 8 to 12 weeks
Cleaning solutions: Saline Drops, Sensitive Ears Solution, or H2Ocean.
Instructions for Saline and Sensitive Ears:
Never touch healing piercings with dirty hands. Always wash hands with antibacterial soap before touching the piercing. Twice daily, you can use a cotton swab saturated with Saline to remove any crusty formation from the jewelry. This is a normal secretion of blood plasma, and it will pass.
Once the ring is completely saturated, gently rotate it back and forth though the piercing to slide the solution to the inside. Always rinse completely in the shower to avoid leaving soap or shampoo residue on the jewelry. Use paper products on jewelry always. Leave your jewelry in during the initial healing period listed on this sheet. Do not leave the piercing empty, as it may close.
Instructions for H2Ocean: Spray area lightly 3-5 times daily. When able, leave on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse with clean water.
Complete instructions are on individual bottles.
Clean your telephone regularly. Change your pillowcase weekly while the piercing is healing. You can also put a clean t-shirt over your pillowcase each night. All piercings secrete a white fluid that looks like puss. This is normal and varies with the individual.
Please do not hesitate to call or come by with any questions. You are, however, 100% responsible for your own aftercare!
