Lobes

You may use ibuprophen to reduce swelling if you are not allergic to it.

Please do not use any other cleaning solution other than the one that is provided to you by your piercer. 

Avoid touching your fresh piercing until the next day (24 hours after piercing)

You may then start your cleaning process, try and do this an hour before bed so it has time to dry out.

Wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap and water and dry with a clean towel.

Take a cotton bud and apply a couple of drops of the cleaning solution provided to one end of the bud.

Gently push the back of your piercing forward and clean around the front of the jewellery, DO NOT force the bud under the front of the jewellery, just clean around it once and very gently. 

Do the same for the back of the piercing but this time apply a couple more drops to the other end of the bud and clean the back of the jewellery with it, again being very gentle. 

You may now turn your jewellery half a turn to allow free movement, do not do this too much or too often, only when cleaning. 

If you forget to clean it one time, do not clean extra the next day, less cleaning is always better than too much cleaning. 

 

Follow this cleaning routine once a day for two weeks.

Do not go swimming in chlorinated pools or the sea for one month after your piercing as this will lead to complications in healing.

If you have only one side freshly pierced do not sleep on that side until fully healed, if you have a fresh piercing on both sides then lay on your back.

The piercing may take up to one month to heal and this is when you can change your jewellery to another stud or ring of your choosing. We have plenty of new jewellery pieces in the studio for you to choose from.

If you need to change your jewellery or remove it before one month for any reason please drop into the studio and see us.
