Having your piercing done by a professional, competent and hygienic piercer is only half the work required for a successful piercing. The other half of a successful piercing is up to you. By using commonsense and our suggested aftercare guidelines, you may even speed up your recommended healing time.
It all starts with clean hands… make sure you wash your hands!
Warm saline soak: use a ¼ teaspoon of rock salt and dissolve it in to a 250ml cup of boiling water. When the water has cooled down a little, and it is still warm, soak some cotton pads in this solution, and then soak your piercing with the cotton pads. This process will help remove discharge and will also help to remove any stubborn matter that may form around your new piercing. To further help remove any discharge, the same solution may be applied to a Q-tip or a cotton bud.
Please remember that a stronger mix of this solution isn’t necessarily a better mix!
There is no need to turn or spin your jewellery in a new piercing, as this will re-introduce bacteria into your new piercing.
After your piercing that afternoon or evening apply an ice pack or cold compress to relieve the pain and reduce swelling. 10 mins on and 10 mins off the location is a good time frame. Repeat the icing as much as you like but it is only effective in the first day.
The next day, start soaking the piecing in the sea salt solution or apply a saturated gauze twice a day, morning and night for the next 4 weeks and occasionally when lymphatic discharge appears. The dilution should be 1 teaspoon of salt to 1 litre of water. Soak the piercing for 5 mins then remove discharge with a cotton bud.
If the piercing troubles you after 4 weeks you are welcome to return for advise at Inner vision Wednesday through to Saturday or use a small amount of Iodine provided on the piercing. Iodine should be used sparingly ie once a week when needed.
Please remember you are always welcome to come into the shop for advise or aftercare information.
