Q & A

Q1
_____________________

How old can my child start to get a piercing?

Infants of 3 months old after receiving the tetanus toxoid vaccine injection can get a piercing. If there is any uncertainty or health problem, consult the doctor for advice before piercing.

Q2
_____________________

Will my child cry during the piercing?

Like receiving an injection, babies usually cry and wail too when piercing. Please bring along sufficient water or milk for the baby so that the baby can soon get accustomed and stop crying.

Q3
_____________________

Is it better to get a piercing for my child when my child is asleep?

When babies come with proper health conditions, sufficient sleep and consciousness, it is actually more ideal for getting a piercing. It is not recommended to perform the piercing when the baby is asleep, as the baby may be woken from pain and get anxious easily.

Q4
_____________________

Why do some people wear earrings that appear slanted and uneven? 

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.

Q5
_____________________

What are the steps in piercing?

Piercing by ISABELLA is safe and hygienic, each earring used for piercing is packaged individually in a capsule and completely sealed by aseptic process to ensure that the piercing-earrings, earring clutches, capsules and packing boxes are 100% sterilized in strict compliance with the USA FDA sterilization standards. Before piercing, we will clean and sterilize the piercing area, target the perfect location for piercing based on your face contour, ear shapes and the size and height of your ears. Upon your approval, our piercing specialist will then unseal the packing box, put the capsule on instrument and perform the piercing. Capsule will be disposed once used and the instrument will not touch the piercing areas. The whole process is highly safe and reliable.

Q6
_____________________

Is incident of irritation or infection after ear-piercing common?   

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.

Q7
_____________________

Shall I keep wearing my original piercing-earrings after healing?

In addition to its piercing function, ISABELLA nickel-free hypoallergenic piercing-earrings are ideal for everyday wear after healing to prevent your new piercings from closing and to enhance their stability and healthiness. 

Q8
_____________________

Is the earring easy to fall out?

The safety clutches specially designed for piercing with threaded posts and covered backs bring full safety day-night protection for the baby from potential injury by sharp earring points. Although safety clutches are far less likely to fall out than normal clutches, babies may accidentally shake the earring safety lock when moving and twisting and turning during sleep, which can cause the earrings to tilt to one side or loosen up. Parents are thus advised to check and ensure that the earring safety clutches are locked properly at the posts when performing daily cleansing and sterilizing.

Q9
_____________________

What are the aftercare and subsequent follow-up steps needed after piercing?

Aftercare is vital to the formation of a healthy piercing. ISABELLA provides you with comprehensive guidance of the correct aftercare treatment. To prevent and reduce the possible discomfort arising from piercing, the first thorough assessment will be given one week after piercing. 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. The piercing fee already includes the charges for the above service, with a bonus Aftercare Service to check for potential problems if any discomfort arises.

 

Q10
_____________________

Can I get my piercing wet, like washing my hair, swimming or playing other sports?

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.

Q11
_____________________

How long do I have to wait before I can change my earrings after piercing?

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.

 

EAR-PIERCING PROCESS

EAR-PIERCING EARRINGS

EAR-PIERCING + AFTERCARE  

Earrings with smaller colorful crystals or balls help nourish the sense of sweetness of adorable babies.

New born babies must receive tetanus toxoid vaccine injection before they can get an ear-piercing. For most cases, infants (new born babies inclusive) with better health conditions, sufficient sleep and proper consciousness would be fit for the piercing. Whereas the situation of each infant varies, generally every baby can easily tolerate the piercing process. Most parents are hence overjoyed with happiness when they see how beautiful their babies look in their first pair of earrings.

If the baby likes to grab and fling the items on the body, parents should pay close attention to prevent their child from flinging the earrings. It will be safe to put on a pair of gloves especially when their baby is unattended. Parents should also adhere to cleansing and sterilizing steps for their child twice a day and keep an eye on the piercing conditions to make sure that the safety clutches are locked properly at the posts. Cleanse and sterilize the piercing every time after washing the hair and bathing in order to keep the piercing dry and hygienic.

Infant ear-piercing service has to be conducted by two ear-piercing specialists at the same time.  Please make appointment in advance by email or calling our customer service hotline, or directly contacting our staff member at the store.
