Medical Ear Piercing

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.

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.
