Regardless of the type of piercing, it is extremely important to follow the aftercare instructions so that the piercing can heal correctly. To avoid complications, we work with sterile and single-use materials only. However, once our work is done, the aftercare, as seen below, is your sole responsibility.
|Piercing Type||Swelling||When to Change Piercing Jewelry||Healing Time|
|Earlobe||1 to 3 days||1 month||2 to 3 month|
|Cartilage||3 to 6 weeks||2 to 3 month||6 to 9 month|
|Eyebrow and Bridge||3 to 10 jours||2 to 3 month||4 to 6 month|

White, yellow or translucent discharge is to be expected in the very first stages of the healing process, as your lymph is naturally cleaning the newly punctured area. However, these symptoms must go away in a few weeks (depending on the type of piercing). If symptoms persist or worsen (excessive redness, excessive swelling, opaque and smelly discharge, fever, strong radiating pain), it’s important to immediately contact your piercer. Your piercer will then asses the situation and adjust the aftercare instructions in consequence, or direct you to a doctor.
