EAR PIERCING FOR MEN
MODERN EDGINESS OF THE NEW GENERATION
Q & A
Should I get pierced on the left ear or the right?
For most of the cases, men usually prefer single piercing on the left earlobe or cartilage, whilst ideas like piercings on both earlobes and double piercings on a single earlobe are also climbing up in popularity.
How long can I replace my piercing-earrings after piercing?
If you want to swap the piercing-earrings, inform our piercing specialist before piercing. As the healing process of the piercing holes varies according to different individuals, it is highly recommended to keep wearing your earrings for approximately four weeks. After that our piercing specialist would inspect 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.
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.
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 position 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.
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.
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.
Can I remove the earrings for just a few hours when working?
Please do not remove the earrings before the piercing completely heals. As the skin of the new piercing is very fragile, the new piercing hole may shrink if you remove the earrings before designated healing time. Given a shrunk piercing, you may have difficulty to wear the earrings back on again and also a higher risk of injuring your delicate skin. This may thus hinder the piercing healing progress and develop greater chance of infection. If you must remove the earrings, consult our piercing specialist first and seek for relevant assistance.
When can I wear larger earrings?
Our piercing-earrings are hypoallergenic and safe, serving as an impeccable choice for beginners to keep wearing during the healing process, since the skin of the new piercing is very tender and fragile. After three months from the piercing, pay a visit to our piercing specialist for a professional inspection on the healing progress. After ensuring that your piercing is healthily formed, we can provide a few more options of nickel-free hypoallergenic earrings for you to wear.
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.
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.
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 + AFTERCARE
Designs from dazzling zirconia and hoops to gold/ silver balls and mystic black crystal are just some of the popular options to bring out your exceptional masculine charm. You may choose to get a single ear piercing on the earlobe or cartilage, while traditional piercings on both earlobes and even double piercings on a single earlobe are extremely à la mode among men as well. ISABELLA Ear-Piercing Esthetics offer you a fully personalized piercing experience after the careful consideration of your ear shape requirements and individual preference with our professional recommendations so that you can unveil a stylish combination of masculinity and gentleness in multiple occasions.
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.
The aftercare of piercing is critical but not complicated – the simple steps involve cleansing and sterilizing the piercings every morning and night. After this first week, we will offer an expert Aftercare Service to review the condition of your piercings to avoid and minimize any possible discomfort after piercing. And after three months, an Ear Healing Check will also be provided to accurately assess the healing progress of your piercing.
