Medical ear piercing for babies 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 their baby due to the safety and security of having piercing done to a medical standard of care and hygiene. It is better to have a piercing done by a doctor than by a store clerk.
Our 2 Methods
Our Ontario and Calgary Medical Piercing clinics offer ear piercing for babies and infants with the Blomdahl system. Your child will be cared for by accredited medical professionals in a medical clinic.
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 pain for your baby.
Right after a baby’s ear piercing it is normal for the area to feel hot and maybe a little sore. 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.
We offer single-use sterile needle piercings for babies 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 method and therfore perfect for babies and infants. It is incredibly safe and efficient. 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.
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, which makes it an ideal choice for baby piercing. 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 minimize 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 you may have for your child.
Blomdahl infant piercing earrings are designed to facilitate rapid healing so that you and your baby can be comfortable during the healing period.
Importantly, our piercing earrings are made from skin-safe medical grade titanium or medical plastic to prevent exposing your baby to nickel or other allergens that can be found in standard earrings.
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 – so babies cannot hurt themselves by mistake.
The earring backs cannot be moved like on regular earrings. That way the air can always circulate around your baby’s new ear piercing to support optimal healing.
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 for the baby.
Earlobes differ in thickness. For slightly thicker earlobes Blomdahl has developed piercing earrings with extra long posts so that we can be sure that your child’s earring will not be too tight or uncomfortable.
After the baby ear 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 baby 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 your baby if needed.
