One of the most important steps in ear piercing is aftercare. Whether this is your first, third, or fourth piercing, it's important to follow the ear-piercing care instructions carefully to avoid infection and to ensure that your piercing heals properly.

This is how you take care of your new piercing
Always wash your hands with soap and water before touching your piercing or earrings. During treatment, we recommend cleaning the front and back of your ear as well as freshly pierced earrings three times a day with CLEAN HANDS and a fresh cotton swab soaked in an ear care solution.
You should always keep your piercing clean. So if you swim or exercise, rinse your ears thoroughly and reapply the ear care solution after the activity.
How long will it take for my piercing to heal?
With ear-piercing, you can wait about 6 weeks for it to heal before you can replace your earrings with new ones. Do not go out without earrings for more than 24 hours for the next 6 months, otherwise, your piercing may close.
For cartilage piercings, the average healing time is 12 weeks. For the next 6 months after treatment, you must wear your earrings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, otherwise, your piercing will be covered.
