Quick, Gentle, Hygienic,
Virtually Painless Nose Piercing

Our sterile needle 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 nose 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 nose piercing studs are designed to facilitate rapid healing, and so that you can easily change to a regular nose ring after the healing period.

Our piercing studs are made from skin-safe medical grade titanium or medical plastic for people with sensitive skin and allergies to jewellery—perfect for all ages.

Our nose piercing jewellery is lightweight and has comfortable, rounded shapes. For hygiene reasons, there is no butterfly on the inside of the nose.

The piercing jewellery has an olive shaped tip that helps to keep the piercing jewellery in place during the healing period.

To keep the piercing clean and dry during the healing period, it is important that the nose piercing stud has the right length, so that air can circulate and optimize healing.

Since nose wings differ in thickness and the space inside the nose can vary from person to person, our nose piercing jewellery is available in different lengths so we can match the piercing stud length to your nose shape.

The nose piercing studs offered at Medical Piercing clinics in Ontario are made from medical plastic and titanium – and use high quality cubic zirconia, preciosa crystals and Swarovski crystals to add that little bit of sparkle.

Whatever the shape and colour, all the components that come into contact with the skin are guaranteed skin friendly.

Follow Up and Aftercare

After the nose piercing procedure you will receive detailed printed aftercare instructions, as well as have ongoing access to our team for support.

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 you (or your child) free from infection.

In the written aftercare instructions you are advised to clean the new piercing twice a day on the outside. Supplementary cleaning is done with Blomdahl Piercing Aftercare cleansing swabs, which are gentle on the skin and easy to use.

You will be given you 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 nose piercing procedure when the aftercare instructions are followed – and you will have the security of knowing that our doctors are ready to help if needed.

Medical Nose Piercing FAQ

Medical piercing is the safest way to get pierced. Parents prefer to minimize infection risk and all our clients benefit from a procedure done to a high standard of care in a medical clinic, with direct access to our doctors for any concerns.

Yes. For an initial nose piercing a stud with a straight post is best. Your nose tissue will swell slightly after piercing and during the healing process so the initial piercing jewellery needs to accommodate this and permit air flow. You can always switch the jewellery once the piercing has fully healed.

Medical Piercing offers nose piercing packages that include the piercing procedure, Blomdahl nose piercing studs, follow-up and aftercare. You will have 24-hour access to our doctors for any questions or concerns.
