Lip

This aftercare can also but used for cheek piercings

Do not touch your piercing until cleaning is required. 

Try to avoid sleeping on the side you have your piercing on if your piercing is towards the side of your mouth, if you have piercings on either side of the mouth then lay on your back.

Always wash your hands with antibacterial soap and water before you start cleaning your piercing. 

Start cleaning your piercing the next day, apply two drops of the cleaning solution provided to one end of a cotton bud, gently push your piercing outward with your tongue, do not force it too much, only enough to get the cotton bud slightly under the ball of the stud. wipe once around the piercing and gently push it back into your mouth with the other end of the cotton bud if it doesn't go back in itself.

Repeat these steps if you have more than one lip/mouth piercing but use a clean cotton bud for each cleaning. 

Try to avoid touching or playing with your piercing with your tongue or teeth and be careful when eating and speaking as it can prolong the healing process.

After one month you can down size your piercing to finish healing, please contact your piercer for this. Your piercing will take three months to fully heal and we have plenty of new jewellery in the studio for you to purchase. We can also order in any new pieces for you.

Do not go swimming in chlorinated pools or in the sea until your piercing is fully healed as it may become infected. 

If you have any problems such as excess swelling, weeping, tender areas for more than one month etc please contact us. You can either call or drop into the studio when your piercer is there or use our contact form on the home page.
