La cicatrisation de votre piercing, étape par étape

The healing of your piercing, step by step

You have just had your piercing done, the result of our work also depends on compliance with the care instructions given on the day of your appointment.

Step 1: Inflammation

At this point, the piercing is a raw open wound.
Swelling, pain and bleeding are completely normal. In the days following the piercing, the blood clots, the cells that circulate in our blood bind together to repair the wound.

Stage 2: Growth

At this stage, the skin begins to heal from the outside in, creating a narrow channel around the jewel. Your piercing will remain at this stage for the

a majorpart of his recovery. Warning! Remember that new skin is very delicate and can tear easily. It is also often at this time that we think that our piercing is not healing. This is because the skin forming the channel is so delicate that a simple tug, or snagging, can reopen it and cause blood to flow, so you're back to step one. It is important to note that the piercing may appear healed at this stage, but most of the time it is not.

Step 3: Maturation

The flesh lining the piercing gets stronger! It takes months or even years for your piercing to heal completely. Throughout the healing process, the piercing goes between stages two and three, so be patient, healing time varies between people.

Any complications such as bumping your piercing or exposure to harsh chemicals (shampoo, soaps, alcohol) will prolong this process! Lobes tend to heal faster because they are made up of soft tissue. In the cartilage area healing can take up to a year, depending on your body and how you take care of your piercing.

Important! Actual infections with bacterial presence are rare. More often than not, when people say their piercing is "infected", it's more often than not really irritated or inflamed.

Patience is key! Be careful with your daily activities, such as when changing clothes or brushing your hair. If you think there is a problem, consult the person who pierced you.
