Medical ear piercing with the Blomdahl system uses a modern aseptic technique and is carried out using sterile disposable products. This means that our products and methods are specifically designed to avoid the spreading of infections when piercing.
Our piercing earrings are developed in consultation with skin specialists to be suitable for everyone, even those who suffer from allergies. You can choose between medical grade plastic and pure titanium earrings. The piercing earrings are designed to facilitate the healing process.
The earring backs on Blomdahl piercing jewellery are always fixed at the tip of the post where it encapsulates the tip.The piercing jewellery is also designed to make the hole slightly wider in the beginning, which eases the switch to normal earrings after the healing period.
Our quality-assured manufacturing takes place in Halmstad, Sweden, in accordance with ISO 13485, an international quality standard for medical devices. This means that we have full control and traceability over all stages of production, from materials used to finished product.
Prices on piercings depend on the style of jewellery chosen. The price will include the jewellery, the medical piercing procedure, aftercare, and 24 hours access to our doctors for support with any concerns.
We do not pierce with a traditional or standard piercing gun. Instead, we use an encapsulated cassette which is mounted on a piercing instrument for sterile hygienic purposes.
This is a no-touch system that protects everyone from contamination. Conventional ear piercing instruments come in contact with the ear, and therefore need to be sterilized after each ear is pierced. Our medical ear piercing system uses sterile disposable cassettes to house the earring, meaning the instrument never comes in contact with the ear and it is virtually impossible to pass infection.
Every client has fresh and sterile equipment and earring or nose piercing.
Approximately 30 percent of all women suffer from nickel allergy, which is the most common form of contact allergy. Contact allergies can develop at any time in life, and an ear piercing makes the skin more vulnerable to inappropriate materials, such as nickel, gold, palladium, cobalt and so on.
Blomdahl jewellery is made from only the safest materials. Our piercing earrings are developed in consultation with skin specialists to be suitable for everyone, even those who suffer from allergies. You can choose between carefully selected medical grade plastic and titanium earrings and nose piercings.
Pure medical titanium is the safest metal. It is the same type of material that is used for medical implants inside the body. Earrings made from medical titanium eliminate any concern about nickel and other harmful substances.
Pure medical plastic is unique in that it contains 0% nickel. It is made of the same type of material that is used in skin sutures and plastic surgery. It has been used for over 40 years in healthcare with no reported cases of allergy. So, with earrings made from medical plastic, you will not have to worry about nickel and other harmful substances.
It is important to take proper care throughout the healing period (approx. 6–12 weeks) in order to avoid infection. By following the aftercare instructions, you can minimize the risk of infection. In the written aftercare instructions you are advised to clean the hole thoroughly twice a day, using soap and water or Blomdahl Piercing Aftercare cleansing swabs, which are gentle on the skin and easy to use.
To remove the piercing earring, first wash hands and ears thoroughly. A good time to remove the piercing earring is right after a shower/hair wash. With one hand, take hold of the jewellery part (front) of the piercing earring. With the other hand, take hold of the earring back and wiggle it back and forth, until you feel it loosens. Carefully remove the piercing earring and insert a clean earring. Piercing earrings are only intended to be used during the healing period.
It takes up to a year before the holes are completely healed. So it is recommended to always wear earrings during this period. If you go without, the holes can shrink and/or close completely.
Take extra care when changing earrings. The skin that has grown within the holes is still thin and delicate and can easily tear, which may cause an infection. Always make sure to wash your earrings and your hands before the change, and make sure that the area around the holes is kept clean, dry and airy. If you use earrings with earring backs, these should not be pressed tightly against the back of the ear.
The risk for developing a contact allergy is at its greatest during the first year. This is why it is extra important to wear safe earrings during this time. In consultation with skin specialists, Blomdahl has developed skin friendly jewellery suitable for everybody and especially for those who have just pierced their ears.
Yes. We offer a medical nose piercing procedure that provides the same safety and hygiene benefits as our medical ear piercing.
