What to Expect
Your body piercing was done by a highly trained professional. The next steps of care are extremely important & imperative to your healing process.
(Please note: Everyone heals at a different rate & time. Below is a list of common healing signs, after your initial piercing/ stretching.
After your piercing procedure is done, you may notice:
Pink or slightly red around the piercing entry & exit site.
May bleed a small amount and crust
may be slightly swollen/ puffy
Slightly sore or achy during healing time.
You may notice a whitish/yellow color fluid that persists for a few months during your healing time, even up to a few years with certain piercings.
This is NOT PUSS. Puss is a dark yellow &/or green color. This is your body's natural way of healing. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Please see the healing times chart, for suggested healing timelines related to your specific piercing.
Clean your piercing no more than two times a day, unless otherwise directed, using suggested antibacterial fragrance-free liquid soap & sea salt solution or renu protein enzyme cleaning contact saline solution.
Soap used around the piercing should be fragrance-free & antibacterial.
Orgalla Designs suggests Liquid Antibacterial Soap ONLY( ex. Soft-Soap, Lever 2000, Dial, Castile, Almay gentile wash) , due to the soap bars harboring bacteria.
Use Sea Salt ONLY!!! DO NOT USE OTHER SALTS. DO NOT USE EPSOM SALT.
How to make the sea salt solution
Use 1/4 tsp/cup of distilled water. Use this solution warm or cold. There are great benefits to using the sea salt solution as a hot compress.
How to use a compress/soak
Place the solution in the microwave and warm it up to a warm temperature to the touch, but that you will not burn or hurt yourself. Use as an inverted cup of hot water, creating a seal around the piercing, place within the sea salt solution for soaking or drench onto a paper towel, and hold onto your piercing as a hot compress.
use this method 1-2 times p/day.
How To Clean
Apply a small amount of anti-bacterial liquid soap into your clean hands, and create a lather with your fingers.
Lather around the pierced area, cleansing the skin around the piercing and removing any outside crust, before rotating the soap into the piercing.
Rinse, then lather around the area again, this time, rotating the soap through the piercing. Rinse thoroughly.
Finish by rinsing with sea salt rinse or renu protein enzyme contact saline solution, rotating into the piercing.
It is important not to dry out your piercing, by over cleaning it, or using harsh chemicals.
Your piercer from Orgalla Designs has gone over your suggested aftercare with you, after your procedure.
Consult with your piercer, if you have any further questions.
What Not To Do
It is important...DO NOT TOUCH the piercing with dirty hands, Always wash your hands before touching your piercing
Avoid using makeup products, creams or moisturizers on, or around the piercing.
DO NOT USE
Rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, ointments, fragrant soaps or lotions.
Many people think the above list under, "What not to do/ do not use," is ok to use, however they are extremely harmful to the piercing, and are not suggested by Orgalla Designs.
These types of products can cause clogging, over drying the skin cells, chemical burns, prolonging skin cell regeneration, which is important to heal your piercing quickly.
Be careful of weights, tights, belt's, leggings or tight constrictive clothing that may snag or get caught on your jewelry. The piercing needs to heal first, before this type of friction against the jewelry, and will prolong your healing, possibly injure or tare your piercing.
Be careful with rough play, friction & sexual activity!
Avoid Pools, hot tubs, ocean, lake or outdoor body of water. They harbor bacteria, and are not good for the first month minimum into your healing time. Always make sure you clean your piercings immediately after. Hot sea salt compresses are suggested, to help maintain the health and cleanliness of your piercings.
Do NOT change your jewelry too soon.
It is important to allow your piecing to heal with the appropriate body compatible jewelry. Changing the jewelry too soon, can cause many problems, irritate or can be harmful to the piercing. It is not suggested to change the jewelry to soon, unless needed. Inquire with your piercer for more information.
