Ear-piercing & Aftercare

Each individual has a unique ear shape and structure, even the left one can differ a lot from its counterpart. It is thus important to customize the ear-piercing position according to the ear shape and needs of individuals. As the symmetry and the leveling of the piercing holes would undoubtedly affect the overall appeal, professional ear-piercing technology depends heavily upon the principle of precision.

The health condition of an individual, chiefly one’s wound-healing ability, determines the healing process of a new piercing. If any abnormal sign of redness, swelling or pain occurs after piercing, it is likely to be a symptom of infection or other problems. In order to largely diminish the chance of infection, a safety and hygiene guaranteed piercing process is crucial. You should pay special attention to proper personal care and carefully protect your pierced ears from injury as a result of bruising and straining. Do not remove your earring studs until a healthy piercing hole takes shape after healing time.

ISABELLA use earrings with posts of a standard thickness of 0.75mm. This not only ensures the proper air flow over the piercings, but the piercings would also appear thin and less conspicuous.

The ease to put on earrings relies on whether the position and the angle of piercing are precise enough, as precision piercing technology advocates balance and comfort. Besides, a healthy piercing would make it easier to put on earrings too.

Aftercare is vital to the formation of a healthy piercing. ISABELLA provides you with comprehensive guidance of the correct aftercare treatment.

And after three months, a second assessment will be offered to examine whether the piercing heals healthily, in addition to further instructions on how to put on and off earrings properly.

Cleanse and sterilize your piercing immediately every time you wash your hair, swim or sweat excessively. It is all right to wet you piercing when showering, but you should be careful not to bruise or strain it with towel, nor get any hair product on it. It is advised not to swim or play any vigorous sports in the first week after piercing since the piercing holes may still be far from becoming stable.

It is essential to keep wearing the piercing-earrings for at least three months after performing the piercing. You should cleanse the piercing with ISABELLA Ear-Care Antiseptic twice a day and closely follow the sterilization steps. Pay heed to any hidden earwax behind the piercings and bear in mind not to remove the earring studs before healing process completes. Otherwise, the piercings may suffer from shrinking, closing-up or bruising which may lead to the inability to wear earrings again.

Your piercing-earrings shall be left in the earlobe piercings for at least three months to prevent the piercings from injury or closure before healing. As helix piercings are somewhat more vulnerable to bruises / snags and bacterial infection, extra attention on aftercare and keeping the piercing-earring in a helix piercing for a minimum of four to six months continuously are necessary. The healing time required for a piercing may vary considerably for different people. Infection or any other discomfort may prolong the healing time. Do not change the earring on your own prior to an Ear Healing Check and a proper healing of your piercing.

If this happens, bring the piercing-earring along with ISABELLA Aftercare Guidelines to our piercing specialist immediately. Our piercing specialist will then check your piercing and attempt to help you put the earring back on to prevent it from closure. If the piercing suffers severe bruising, visit the doctor at once.
