Nose piercing




Nose piercing is considered to be very attractive and is popular with men and women alike. It is fun to get a nose piercing because of the variety of jewelry that can be worn in it!

There are several types of nose piercing that you could go for and nose piercing healing time is roughly around two or three months, depending upon the individual and the piercing type.

It is very important to ensure that the piercing heals properly so that you do not have to face the risk of developing an infection!

Let us look at the different kinds of nose piercing and what to expect.

You can get a nostril piercing, septum piercing or a bridge piercing. While the healing time is similar for the nostril and septum piercings, bridge piercing healing can take longer. This is simply because bridge piercing is a  surface piercing. In addition, there is also a higher chance of rejection.

Nostrils usually take up to 3 months to heal. The surprising thing is that this is also the quickest piercing to close after healing, so make sure that you keep the jewelry on for at least six months. Do not leave the piercing empty even for a few days. Also, do not attempt to change the jewelry before it heals totally as it can cause unnecessary pain and possible infections.

To help with the healing process, follow the aftercare tips from your piercer. These tips might include cleaning it with an antibacterial soap. Keep it clean from stale makeup. In fact, take special care not to handle it with dirty hands. Do not apply any lotions. It is a good idea to minimize smoking during the nose piercing healing process since tar, resin and smoke residue can build up and slow down the healing process.

Generally, if the piercing happens to get infected, it would generally look like a yellowish boil or pimple. For those with oily skin, an antibacterial soap is the best option. Washing it with warm salt water soaks also helps in clearing up the infection. Do not make the mistake of removing the jewelry as you wouldn’t want the infection to be sealed inside. This is a common mistake made by those with new piercings. If you have an infection and remove your jewelry, the wound will close with the infection trapped inside. This can develop into an abscess and will need medical treatment. If you leave your jewelry in, it will leave a channel open to allow the fluid to drain from the infection.

Do not keep touching the piercing during the healing process as it can result in a scar tissue. If you have opted for a nostril screw at the time of piercing, take care not to get your towel or clothes caught in it. Do remember that nose piercing healing will go faster if you do not sleep on your face!ūüôā

Nose piercing aftercare




Well, you just got your new nose piercing. Congratulations!

However, before you can enjoy your fresh nose piercing, you have to follow some simple nose piercing aftercare tips to avoid anything unpleasant!

Most likely you’ll be given aftercare guidelines at the piercing studio. Nevertheless, ¬†I’ll give you a few universal nose piercing aftercare recommendations. If you are unsure about anything in this article, or if our advice contradicts advice given to you by your piercing professional, you can contact me by leaving a message at the end of the post. I’ll do my best to help.

So, what’s going to happen right after the nose piercing is done? The fresh nose piercing will swell up a little bit. But don’t worry, it’s normal. A piercing is a wound, and wounds take time to heal. The swelling is going to disappear within the next few days, and the pain will subside as well, if there’s any.

There a several types of nose piercing – like nostril piercing, septum piercing, bridge piercing etc. Pain during the piercing and the healing periods will differ. However, the piercing cleaning guidelines are more or less the same.

So the first nose piercing aftercare recommendation – never touch your fresh nose piercing with dirty hands. Use common sense and wash your hands before touching, cleaning or moving your fresh nose ring, stud or barbell.

Secondly – cleaning. This is pretty simple as well. You just have to get a saline solution and clean the nose piercing 2 – 3 times daily. If you can’t get one in a drugstore, you can make the saline solution yourself. Just dilute about 4 teaspoons of non iodized sea salt to 1 gallon of boiled water and the cleansing liquid is ready to use.

For fresh nose piercing cleaning you can use simple cotton buds. Just don’t forget to change them when cleaning the inside and the outside of the piercing to avoid cross-contamination. At the end, when you’ve cleaned the fresh nose piercing, just wipe the excess moisture off using a new dry cotton wool bud and that’s it!

Another nose piercing aftercare tip – when applying make-up, avoid covering your fresh nose piercing with it. This one is obviously more relevant to girls. And if you’ve just got a septum piercing, you can’t really get your make-up inside of the nose! But for other types of nose piercing – nostril piercing and bridge piercing – please keep in mind not to apply make-up to the area.

The last nose piercing aftercare tip – don’t try to insert a new nose ring before the piercing has healed well. The new skin that forms inside the fresh nose piercing is very tender, and you can damage it very easily. So it’s better to wait until the piercing is well healed, it’s not tender to touch and not swollen or ¬†red in color.

The approximate healing times for the nose piercings are following – nostril piercing 4 – 6 weeks. Septum piercing – 1 – 3 months. And bridge piercing can take up to a year. So as you can see, the easiest to heal is the simple nostril piercing, but the most difficult is the bridge piercing because it’s essentially a surface piercing.

Well, that’s it about nose piercing aftercare – everything is simple and you just have to use common sense. Wash hands before touching the nose ring, clean it a few times a day with saline solution, and keep the nose ring, stud or barbell in until the piercing is well healed.

And, of course, if you notice any discharge from the fresh nose piercing, go back to the piercing studio or visit your doctor. Especially – if the piercing is swollen and it’s oozing yellow or green substances.
