Basic Aftercare Tips for Ear Piercings

Once you’ve had your ear pierced, it’s important to take proper care of it to prevent infection and promote healing. The following are some basic tips for aftercare. Please note that when you get a piercing done by Unique Day Spa then there are many more tips, techniques and tricks in after care shown in person, explained, and a 4 page written after care document for you to take home.

  1. Clean the piercing twice a day with a sterile wound wash saline solution or our piercing aftercare spray.  After letting it soak, dry with a clean paper towel.

  2. Do not use any other products like polysporin or alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.
  3. Avoid touching, playing, or twisting the piercing.  Don’t touch the piercing at all with unwashed hands.  Unwashed hands are always considered dirty hands.

  4. Avoid swimming, that includes hot tubbing or soaking in water for at least the few weeks up to 2 months after getting the piercing.

  5. Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing, head bands or ear phones, or ear buds that may touch or irritate the piercing.

  6. Don’t sleep on your piercing. Use a donut or airplane pillow to help to avoid the pressure on the ear.
  7. Be patient! It can take several months for an ear lobe piercing to a year for a cartilage to fully heal inside out.
