EAR PIERCING FOR TEENS

THE SHARED TRACE OF BEAUTY

In the course of pursuing knowledge, teenage boys and girls are also very conscious of their own appearance. Wearing earrings is a snappy fashion practice among adolescents. Accessorizing yourself with the right pair of earrings does not just make you look fair, but it also represents your beaming sense of independence and esthetic vision, like the metamorphosis of a butterfly – stunning and ravishing. Earrings-wearing can also be a never-ending topic for you and your peers to discuss and share about each one’s wearing habit and preference, accompanying each other through the youth and growth in this prime of life.

Youth is definitely priceless, so is your health. If you want a healthy and good-looking piercing, you should not neglect the piercing aftercare and also any slant of piercing positions and angles, or else it may affect the health and worse still the appearance of your piercing. ISABELLA Ear-Piercing Esthetics is safe and reliable, with heavy stress on the precision of position and angle, so that you can swimmingly embark on your journey of fashion and the quest for health and beauty.

Q & A

Q1
_____________________

Can we fly on a plane after getting a piercing?

While it is allowed to fly on a plane after you get a piercing, it is recommended to get a piercing after you come back instead to avoid injuring your piercing during the course of travel. There will also be a longer time for the piercing to get stabilized, and it would be easier to handle any possible discomfort and problems after piercing.  If you need to study abroad or take a long-haul flight, you may consider bringing a small bottle of care solution on board for cleaning and sterilizing purpose.

Q2
_____________________

How thick is the piercing-earring post?

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. 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.

To sustain a healthy piercing, maintain proper aftercare steps to reduce the chance of infection. During the healing process, gently rotate the earrings so that a perfect round piercing can be formed and make it easier to wear earrings afterwards. After the healthy formation of the piercing, you can choose to wear earrings with thicker or thinner posts. Be aware that piercing may stretch or enlarge as a result of wearing heavy earrings or those with thick posts for a long time. Therefore you may consider light-weighted earrings with thin posts in order to protect your delicate piercing as your lifelong partner.

Q3
_____________________

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.

Q4
_____________________

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.

Q5
_____________________

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.

Q6
_____________________

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. 

Q7

What should I do if the piercing-earring is removed or falls out?

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.

Q8
_____________________

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.

Q9
_____________________

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.

Q10
_____________________

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

Demonstrate your adolescent youth and spirit through the help of earrings with colorful crystals or balls. You can choose the piercing-earrings according to your own preference or school guidelines. ISABELLA piercing specialist would also provide you with professional recommendations on the suitable types of earrings based on your ear shape.

If you need to replace the piercing-earrings for school, please inform our piercing specialist before piercing. As the healing process of the piercing holes varies according to different people, it is advised to keep your earrings on for about four weeks and our piercing specialist would examine your piercing healing progress. If the healing progress is satisfactory, our piercing specialist would help you replace your earrings and offer you instructions on correct aftercare treatment. If you just stay in Hong Kong for a short period of time, be sure to perform the piercing as early as possible upon arrival. Receive guidance on proper aftercare treatment one week after the piercing and get another piercing assessment before leaving Hong Kong.

Cartilage Piercing is also gaining popularity too. Yet, cartilage is more vulnerable than earlobe, it should be handled with extra caution to avoid bruising and straining after piercing. Also, keep wearing the earrings for the first year after piercing in order to enhance the healing process and prevent the piercing holes from closing and infection. Only individuals with the age of 16 or above are eligible for cartilage piercing.

Discomfort for new piercings may arise with the lack of sufficient and proper aftercare, normally within the second month upon piercing or after the replacement of earrings. Before the piercing is formed, do not remove or replace the earrings. If the piercing-earring is removed or falls out, please bring it to our piercing specialist immediately along with ISABELLA Aftercare Card. We will then inspect your piercing and attempt to help you put the earring back on so as to prevent it from closure. If the piercing suffers severe bruising, seek help from the doctor at once.
