How to clean your piercings’: 

DO NOT REMOVE/TAKE OUT YOUR JEWELRY TO CLEAN YOUR FRESH PIERCING!

PLEASE DO NOT TWIST OR ROTATE JEWELRY IN INITIAL PIERCINGS!

Wash your hands with antibacterial hand soap and water; rinse completely.

We recommend wearing Nitrile or Latex/Latex-free gloves to tighten balls or gems on jewelry.

We recommend using ONLY H2Ocean products for your healing process. Follow the instructions on can or bottle for the entire healing process. Healing times are listed on front and back of paper. H2Ocean products are made with the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and are laboratory tested to ensure purity and quality and are 100% GUARANTEED. H2Ocean products are the only ones on the market designed specifically for healing your piercing and that we DO NOT recommend the use of any other products that you think are comparable or similar. 

Special Care For Your Piercing:

You will need:

1) H2Ocean product designed for pierced area (H2Ocean Spray, H2Ocean Foam Soap, or H2Ocean Concentrate Mix with Distilled water)
2) H2Ocean Mouthwash (H2Ocean Artic Ocean or H2Ocean Lemon Ice )

3) Cotton gauze pads, Q-Tips (to clean excess fluid)

4) Nitrile or Latex/Latex-free Gloves

What To Do:

Intra Oral Piercings; Tongue/Venom Bites/Webbing/Smiley/Frowny (usually heals in about 4 weeks) No Dairy, citrus foods or spicy foods. Rinse with H2Ocean Mouthwash every time you eat or drink anything other than water.  H2Ocean Mouthwash is designed specifically for piercings and the mouthwashes from the store contain ingredients not recommended for puncture wounds/piercings. Crushed ice placed on your tongue can help with swelling. PLEASE AVOID SUCKING ON THE ICE. Avoid oral contact until the piercing has completely healed.  Start with a fresh/new toothbrush to brush your teeth; toothbrushes can harbor bacteria that can harm your new piercing. 

Lips/Labret/Vertical Labret/SnakeBites/AngelBites/SpiderBites/DolphinBites/Monroe/Dahlias/Jestrum/Medusa/Cheeks/ Ashley Piercing (Usually heals in 8+ weeks)

Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle. Remember that intra oral healing for piercing appears white. If a stud was used, expect the disc to embed slightly into the lip over time, but do not allow new skin to form over the disc. 

Earlobes (usually heals in 4-8 weeks) Ear Cartilage/Helix/Pinna/Daith/Rook/Tragus/Anti-Tragus/Conch/Industrial/Snug (usually heals in 6 months)

Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle. Cartilage is prone to developing cysts. A cyst (hypertrophic scarring) is a fluid filled bump close to the piercing site. Usually they are tender; do not attempt to pop a suspected cyst. Please avoid sleeping on your new piercing as irritation will extend the healing time. Be sure to rinse ear thoroughly after shampooing, conditioning or using any hair products. 

Nose/High Nostril (usually heals in 10-12 weeks) Septum (usually heals in 4 weeks)

Use H2Ocean Nasalzyme Mist product and follow instructions provided on can on front and inside of entrance and exit sites. Clean excess with cotton gauze pad/Q-tip. Cartilage is prone to developing cysts. A cyst (hypertrophic scarring) is a fluid filled bump close to the piercing site. Usually they are tender; do not attempt to pop a suspected cyst.

Eyebrow/Horizontal Eyebrow/Bridge (usually heals in 8-10 weeks)

Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle.  Bruising is absolutely normal as this piercing is close to the eye socket.

Navel/Bottom Navel (usually heals in 6-9 months)

Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle. Expect redness at entry and exit point of piercing for a couple of months. Don’t wear tight or constrictive clothing directly over your piercing. Pant or skirt lines should be worn below your navel to avoid irritation. No strenuous activities (such as heavy workouts or sit-ups) for 4 weeks. 

Nipples (usually heals in 4-6 months)

Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle. No oral contact until fully healed. This piercing can produce “crusties” for 1 year or longer. Please DO NOT PICK crusties, as it may lead to irritation and prolonged healing.  

Genital Piercing: Lower Male and Female Genitalia (Usually heals in 6 weeks – 8months or longer)

All piercing's are an open channel to the blood stream. Especially in the case of genital piercing's. Sexual contact during the healing phase can be dangerous to you and your partner. Please wait six (6) to eight (8) weeks before sexual activity with your partner to ensure a safe healing. These piercing's are serious and if taken lightly can be hazardous to your health. Use H2Ocean product and follow instructions provided on can or bottle.

Information about Irritation vs. Infection for Piercing:

More often than not, people who believe they have an infection actually only have an irritation. You can recognize a true infection by its relatively sudden inflammation and accompanying discharge of green-like mucus puss, a foul odor and or blood. If you suspect you have an infection, consult a doctor immediately! Do not wait for it to get worse, and do not attempt a home remedy. If your piercing is red, swollen right around the hole, peeling, excreting white or yellow fluid, bleeding slightly, or seems to have a solid (not fluid-filled) bump around the jewelry, it is probably irritated. These are all signs that the piercing is being subjected to excessive abuse or trauma. Once the cause of the irritation is found and eliminated, symptoms will often disappear and your piercing will have a safe healing.

Jewelry Matters:

You have been pierced with the best jewelry available [ASTM F-138 compliant, EEC Compliant, or ISO 5832-1 Compliant; ISO 10993-(6,10, or 11) compliant] in a sterile, hygienic environment by professionally trained body piercers’. Please respect your investment! We are not responsible for your jewelry once you leave the facility. Check the tightness of the balls and gems on your jewelry daily (right tighten, left to loosen). We do not warranty jewelry. Please consult your piercer about changing out your jewelry before you attempt to do so yourself. Allow indicated healing time before downsizing your jewelry to ensure adequate healing time. DO NOT switch out jewelry if redness and swelling are still present.

Additional Information and Advice:

Swimming: Chlorine can over dry a new piercing. It is best to avoid soaking it in pools or hot tubs. Stay away from rivers and lakes or oceans while healing; they are full of bacteria. In cases of accidental exposure, clean your piercing immediately afterwards.

Do: Contact your piercer if you have questions or concerns.

Don’t: Touch or play with your piercing. Ever!

Improper after care of your piercing can result in permanent scarring

Aftercare Instructions

503.347.4051/pts503.com

DO NOT TOUCH OR PLAY WITH YOUR MICRO-DERMAL(S)/SURFACE PIERCING!!MIRCO-DERMALS/SURFACE PIERCINGS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO TAKE LIGHTLY THEY REQUIRE CONSTANT CARE AND CLEANING. MODIFICATION OF LIFESTYLE MAY BE NEEDED TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE TEMPORARY PIERCINGS STAY IN AS LONG AS THEY CAN.

While your piercing is healing, treat it with the same respect as you would any other kind of broken skin. Bruising is absolutely normal due to certain location of piercings. Do not touch the piercing or let someone else touch, kiss or lick the piercing. Do not let the piercing come in contact with another person’s bodily fluid.

Don't touch, twist, or fiddle with the jewelry for at least 3-4 months. Twisting and fiddling with the jewelry breaks the healing tissue trying to form around the anchor and also grinds dirt and other unpleasant things into the wound causing infection, irritation and prolonging the healing time. The best way to care for your dermal is using a saline (salt-water) solution because it is natural and less threatening to the body than chemicals.

What is needed:

1) Medical tape or band aids

2) Sterile Cotton Gauze pads

3) H2Ocean Spray, H2Ocean bottle of Concentrate Mix with distilled water or H2Ocean Foam Soap

Cleaning: We recommend using ONLY H2Ocean products for your healing process. Follow the instructions on can or bottle for the entire healing process. H2Ocean products are made with the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and are laboratory tested to ensure purity and quality and are 100% GUARANTEED. H2Ocean products are the only ones on the market designed specifically for healing your piercing and that we DO NOT recommend the use of any other products that you think are comparable or similar.  Unlike standard piercings regular sea salt soaks are not recommended for micro-dermals/ surface piercings, as water can gather in the pocket causing the area to swell slightly and place pressure on the footplate (anchor) holding the implant in place – pushing it up through the skin or making it tilt. 

How to properly compress your Micro-Dermal/Surface Piercing:

Please fold your cotton gauze pad in half; then fold that half in half. You will then need to place your gauze pad on your micro-dermal then apply your medical tape or band aid to hold your micro-dermal/surface piercing in place. This is called a compression.

Compressions: AFTER initial piercing it is recommend to keep your compression on for a FULL 24 hours! After the initial Twenty-Four Hour (24hr) period it is recommended to keep your dermal compressed 4 hours on and then 4 hours off through the entire day for the next seven (7) days. We also recommend that you compress your micro-dermal/surface piercing overnight, every night, as you sleep to prolong the longevity of your micro-dermal/surface piercing. 

Although they can look healed within the 2nd week, they will require about 3-4 months for proper initial healing. Do not try changing jewelry tops during this time, as it puts added undue pressure on your new piercing. We recommend coming in after the 4 months to have them properly cleaned. Tops should be changed out about every 6 months thereafter. Improper after care of your micro-dermal/surfacepiercing can result in permanent scarring

I understand that there is a fifty dollar ($50.00 dollar) micro-dermal/surface piercing removal fee PER micro-dermal/surface piercing if removal is necessary.  

Recommended monthly cleaning after initial 4 months healing time is a five dollar service fee PER micro-dermal.  ($5.00 dollar)

I declare under penalty of perjury that I have read and completed all information on this form and that I understand it and agree to be legally bound to this document.
