Piercing Aftercare Guide
A New Standard for Piercers
Proper aftercare is essential for a successful and healthy healing process for any body piercing. Here are some general guidelines for piercing aftercare:
Keep the piercing clean: Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your piercing, and clean the piercing twice a day with a saline solution or mild soap and water.
Avoid removing the jewelry: Leaving the jewelry in place will help keep the piercing open and prevent it from closing.
Avoid touching or playing with the piercing: Touching the piercing with dirty hands can increase the risk of infection, and playing with the jewelry can irritate the piercing and delay healing.
Avoid exposing the piercing to water and other contaminants: Avoid swimming and soaking in hot tubs until the piercing is fully healed, and avoid exposing the piercing to makeup, hair products, and other contaminants.
Protect the piercing from trauma: Avoid bumping or hitting the piercing while it is healing, and avoid sleeping on the piercing.
Monitor the piercing for signs of infection: Look for signs of redness, swelling, or discharge, and seek medical attention if you notice any of these symptoms.
Remember, every piercing is different, and the healing process can vary depending on the location and type of piercing. It's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your piercer to ensure a successful and healthy healing process.
