Ear Piercing / Nose piercing
Rebecca and Rachel are caflon and studex registered and certified.
As part of the piercing process, your Technician will take you through the aftercare steps both before and then after the piercing. We know that with the anticipation and excitement of getting your new piercing, you may not be paying full attention, so your Studex or Caflon piercer will provide you with a copy of the daily steps to follow and "Dos and Don'ts".
The Studex and Caflon After Piercing Lotion is a must for use straight after your new piercing and throughout the healing period. A pH balanced solution, it will act as a flushing agent as well as soothing and promoting healing.
Always handle your new piercing with clean hands and remember to carefully rotate at least twice a day, cleaning carefully at the front and back.
- How long do I need to keep my piercing jewellery in for?
6 weeks continuously for the ear lobe, 12 weeks for the upper flat cartilage and a minimum of 8 weeks for the nose.
- Can I take the jewellery out before the healing period?
Removing the jewellery too soon could affect the healthy healing of your piercing and you may struggle to reposition after removing. The recommended guidelines are based on over 4 decades of experience so trust us, we know what is best for your piercing.
- Will my jewellery fall out?
On piercing, Studex and Caflon earrings connect automatically with the butterfly to keep the earrings in place. Locked into a special "notch" the butterfly is designed to stay in place and not move up and down the post, therefore keeping cleaning easy and helping healing.
The traditional butterfly back is preferred by Studex and Caflon, due to its easiness to clean and ability to prevent dirt and bacteria from collecting and thus risking infection. After healing the butterflies can be removed. If they appear a little stiff, simply apply solution and twist to ease before releasing.
The design and positioning of the Medisept nose piercing studs ensure that the slightly flared post keep the jewellery in place for the healing period.
