Nostril

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 (if pierced with a stud) and clean around the front of the jewellery, DO NOT force the bud under the ball of the jewellery, just clean around it once and very gently. 

Do the same for the back of the piercing, you do not need to push the stud, 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 one month.

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

The piercing may take up to three months 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.

Septum

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.

Your ring is best kept turned up into the nose, your piercer will show you how to do this, it is best kept this way to until fully healed to avoid catching it when washing your face or applying make-up.

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

Gently pull your ring down with your cotton bud so it is exposed and clean around one side jewellery once and very gently. 

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

You may now turn your jewellery back up into your nose with your cotton bud which will allow free movement, do not do this too much or too often, only when cleaning. 

You may get some build up of white cells or 'crust' around the holes of the piercing, this is completely normal and you can remove any crust with a dry cotton bud, being very gentle when doing so.

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 one month.

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

After one month you may downsize your jewellery to finish healing, please contact the piercer for this.

The piercing may take up to three months to heal and this is when you can change your jewellery to another 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.
