Medical piercing in our Ontario and Calgary clinics offers a safe and sanitary alternative to ear piercing done in a non-medical setting. Medical piercing is the term used to describe an ear piercing performed in a safe, sanitary way by a medical professional in a clinic setting.

Most parents prefer medical ear piercing for the safety and security of having piercing done to a medical standard of care and hygiene.

Experienced Medical Piercing Doctors

Our doctors offer their patients the best-in-class medical piercing techniques that reduces the risk of infection, and have been safely performed on hundreds of thousands of patients in Canada and around the world.

After extensive research into medical piercing methods, our doctors chose the Blomdahl medical piercing system due to its rigorous infection prevention protocol. It is a safe and relatively comfortable method for ear piercing for babies, children, and adults of all ages. Some of our Ontario clinics also offer the single-use sterile needle piercing method.

At the Medical Piercing clinics in Burlington, Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Mississauga, St. Catharines/Niagara Falls and Calgary, our doctors are supported by dedicated and highly qualified teams that ensure the comfort and care of their patients in the medical piercing procedure rooms at our clinics.

Our doctors are pleased to lead their nursing teams in offering rapid access to Blomdahl medical ear piercing at our Ontario and Calgary Medical Piercing clinic locations.

Our doctors personally perform the medical piercing and also train and supervise clinic staff in the performance of the Blomdahl procedure.

Safe, Sanitary,
Virtually Painless

Our medical piercing process includes these steps:

The piercing is done with your selected Blomdahl skin-friendly earrings, placed directly into the piercing tool while remaining completely sterile. The topical anesthetic applied before the ear piercing minimizes immediate discomfort.

There will be minor discomfort after the procedure and some soreness in the following days, but material pain is unusual. Our doctors are available by phone to address any concerns.

Sterile Needle Medical Piercing

We offer single-use sterile needle piercings for infants, babies, kids, teens and adults at our Brantford, Burlington, Hamilton, Kitchener, London and St. Catharines/Niagara Falls locations.

A single-use piercing needle has been carefully crafted to serve this one exact purpose: A safe piercing! It is a gentle and efficient way of getting ears pierced, while also being one of the safest ways to do so. Our piercing needle method can be used to pierce any part of the ear with cartilage or without such as the lobes,  tragus, anti-tragus, daith, conch, helix, or rook.

Quick, Gentle, Hygienic, Nearly Pain-Free

Our sterile needle ear piercing process includes these steps:

The piercing is done with a sterile single-use hollow high-grade stainless steel needle. Our pre-packaged sterilized hypoallergenic jewellery, is then inserted into the catheter (which keeps the piercing open) and is fed through the space created by the needle. This method is quick and virtually painless with a generally shorter healing time. A new sterile needle is used every time, with no risk of contamination from poorly cleaned equipment.  A numbing cream can be applied to the ear lobes prior to the piercing to minimizes immediate pain.

Some discomfort and soreness is normal in the days following the piercing, however material pain is unusual. Our doctor is available by phone to address any concerns.

Skin Friendly Jewellery

Blomdahl piercing earrings are designed to facilitate rapid healing, and so that you can easily change to regular earrings after the healing period. Our piercing earrings are made from skin-safe medical grade titanium or medical plastic for people with sensitive skin and allergies to jewellery—perfect for babies, kids, and adults.

When air can circulate around a new piercing, it will heal better. That is why the earring backs on Blomdahl piercing earrings are always fixed at the tip of the post, where they also encapsulate the tip.

The earring backs cannot be moved like on regular earrings. That way the air can always circulate around the new piercing.

In order for the new piercing to be kept airy and to heal better, it is important that the piercing earring has the right length.

But earlobes differ in thickness. For slightly thicker earlobes Blomdahl has developed piercing earrings with extra long posts.

After the healing period, you can remove the piercing earrings and change to other earrings. However, the skin that has grown within the holes is still delicate and the holes may shrink a little.

Blomdahl’s piercing earrings have been designed so that the holes will be slightly wider in the beginning and thereby not get so easily damaged when you change earrings.

Follow Up and Aftercare

After the medical piercing procedure you will receive detailed printed aftercare instructions, as well as have ongoing access to our aftercare video.

Your doctor or nurse will review the necessary daily cleaning procedure with you to ensure that you know what to expect, and what to do to keep your child (or yourself) free from infection.

In the written aftercare instructions you are advised to clean the new piercing twice a day, using soap and water or Blomdahl Piercing Aftercare cleansing swabs, which are gentle on the skin and easy to use.

You will be given your doctor’s phone number for quick access should you have any questions or concerns during the healing period. Complications like infection are rare with our procedure when the aftercare instructions are followed – and you will have the security of knowing that our doctors are ready to help if needed.
