Congrats on your New Piercing

We know you're excited to show it off, but it's super important to take care of it so it looks rad for as long as possible.
 

Piercing aftercare:
 

  • Clean the piercing twice a day with a saline solution or mild baby soap. Avoid using alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or other harsh cleaning products, as these can irritate the skin and delay healing.
     

  • Remove any crust or discharge from the piercing gently with a cotton swab. Avoid using cotton balls, as the fibers can get stuck in the piercing and cause infection.
     

  • Apply a thin layer of piercing aftercare ointment or a fragrance-free lotion to the piercing to keep it moisturised. Avoid using petroleum jelly, as it can trap bacteria and cause infection.
     

  • Avoid touching or playing with the piercing, as this can introduce bacteria and cause infection.
     

  • Avoid exposing the piercing to water or other irritants, such as chlorine or soap, for the first few weeks of healing.
     

  • Avoid tight or constricting clothing or jewellery, as this can irritate the piercing and impair healing.

  • What is the best Tattoo Removal option?
    There are three methods for Tattoo Removal but from our experience, Laser Treatment yields the best results. It has a better success rate as compared to Dermabrasion and Surgical Removal.
  • Does Laser Tattoo Removal hurt?
    The common perception is that the pain is similar to that of getting a tattoo or just a bit more. However, it’s not excruciating.
  • Does it leave a scar?
    Usually, it does not leave a scar. However, varied skins have varied effects. Some clients’ skin might be prone to Hypopigmentation (lightning) or Hyperpigmentation (darkening) during the process. These effects are normally temporary but some may see a permanent effect. Generally, patients with a darker skin tone are more prone to facing such effects.
  • How long does the entire process last?
    Normally, it takes around 5 5-10 rounds of treatment for the tattoo to be completely removed. It also depends on the darkness of the ink, quality of the ink, colour of the ink as well as age of the tattoo. Lastly, the area of the body the tattoo is placed at also comes into play in deciding how long it’ll take to be removed.
  • What colour of ink can be removed with ease?
    Black and Red ink are the easiest to remove from the skin. The toughest ink colour in this case would be light green and light blue. There have been cases where these colours cannot be completely removed.
