Q & A



The risk of sensitive skin reaction can be significantly minimized if nickel-free piercing-earrings that comply with the European Union Nickel Directive are used. If you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to seek medical advice from your doctor before piercing. Some individuals with hypersensitive skin may not be suitable to get a piercing.

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. If piercing-earrings with thicker posts are used, the large piercing hole might be easily noticeable whenever you are not wearing any earrings after its stable formation.

One may suffer mild pain while getting a piercing – a level that equals or is milder than injection which normally young children can cope with. Pain occurs at the moment when the earring post punctures the earlobe or the helix. The piercing-earring is thus instantly matched with the earring clutch, signifying the end of the piercing process and at the same time the beginning of a beautiful episode.

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.

A nickel allergy is the most common metal allergy related to ear-piercing. It can be effectively minimized by the use of ISABELLA earrings which are made of medical-grade titanium and nickel-free karat gold, both of which comply with the European Union Nickel Directive. In addition to its piercing function, these earrings are ideal for everyday wear after healing to prevent your new piercings from closing and to enhance their stability and healthiness.
