With piercings the aftercare is crucial. if you don't take care of your new piercing the correct way it can take quite a while to fully heal. Read the instructions below carefully and do not hesitate to ask questions!
1. Healing time
Healing time is different for every piercing. Facial piercings and oral piercings tend to heal way more sufficient than cartilage piercings for example. Not only this but the healing process is also very different for every person individually.
In general these ''rules'' are applied:
- For cartilage piercings such as helix or tragus piercings we recommend waiting 3 months before changing the initial jewel. (If it's healed correctly!)
- For cartilage piercings such as a rook or daith piercing we recommend waiting 6 months, this is also the case for nipple piercings and bellybutton piercings.
- Oral piercings such as lip piercings or a tongue piercing can generally be changed after 6 to 8 weeks.
For every piercing as far as aftercare goes we recommend using a sterile salt solution.
Just twice a day for the first two weeks of your piercing.
For oral piercings we recommend using a mouthwash without alcohol twice a day.
One of the most important things NOT to do is touching your piercing. Your hands contain a lot of bacteria, and if you move your piercing around all the time you're constantly disrupting the healing process. Touching can also lead to bumps on your piercing, these bumps excist because of friction. To avoid friction it's also very important not to sleep on your new piercing.
