Navel Piercing

Piercingpflege

Your new piercing represents a very special injury to your body. Unlike, for example, open cuts, your body cannot form a crust over the open areas, which protects against the penetration of dirt, bacteria or other pathogens!

That's exactly what your main task will be in the coming days: keep the wound clean so that the puncture canal can quickly and easily build up its own thin but protective layer of skin! This process is called epithelialization.

Post-treatment
Support your body with little stress, lots of sleep, a healthy diet and little physical strain. No touching with dirty fingers (at best, disinfect your hands before every touch) - at least wash your hands!

 

Basically avoid any unnecessary touching


No visits to swimming pools, saunas or solariums in the first 4 weeks


Don't take a bath, take a shower


Use skin-friendly shower gel or soap when showering


No contact with foreign body fluids in the first few weeks (e.g. saliva, sweat, sperm)


Do not take any blood-thinning medications (e.g. aspirin) for the first 1-3 days.


Do not put unnecessary pressure or friction on the piercing

 

Do not remove, twist or move the piercing back and forth during the healing phase! This is important!!!

Our body is actually equipped with such complex systems that it would be able to cope with such a “small” piercing injury just fine on its own. Actually. In fact, there are things that make it harder for him to heal and some things you can do to help him. In principle, you should avoid anything that weakens the immune system (e.g. excessive alcohol consumption, too little sleep, etc.), but you should also not irritate the wound more than do any good through excessive care.

After about 14 days we want to see you again for a follow-up check. You can come to us at any time.

Care
How you should care for the piercing - 1 to 2 times a day, preferably in the morning and evening, for 14 days after the piercing appointment:

Step 1:

 

Wash your hands, and wash them thoroughly!


NEVER touch the piercing with dirty fingers

 

Step 2:

If crusts have formed around the piercing, soften them with lukewarm water. You can then remove it with a damp cotton swab (don't pick at it with your fingernails!). Cleaning always takes place from the inside out so that you transport the contamination away from the wound and not towards it.

Step 3:

Please apply the Prontolind (you can buy it from us) generously onto the piercing with a fresh cotton swab and let it take effect for approx. 60 seconds. Do not move the piercing! Thanks to the capillary effect, the agent enters the puncture canal all by itself. Movements of the piercing can cause damage/irritation or irritation to the wound channel and its edges. In addition, bacteria, dirt or allergens could get into the wound canal through the movement.

Step 4:

Blot any excess Prontolind with a paper towel.

Please note that it is completely sufficient to carry out this care twice a day for 14 days. More care can be harmful! Never remove the jewelry during this time. Piercings should also be included in personal hygiene and cleaned after healing.

Ointments and creams easily clog the wound canal and prevent the natural drainage of wound secretions. They also often contain fat, which in turn softens the skin and wounds and therefore makes them more vulnerable. In general, wound creams and ointments are designed for superficial injuries. But the piercing is not a superficial injury

Prontolind / Octenisept contains all ingredients that support healing, i.e. the use of other preparations or ingredients is not necessary. Using different agents at the same time can cause cross-reactions that can be very harmful. A remedy other than Prontolind/Octenisept should only be used after consulting the piercer and if there is clear intolerance.

Do not consume milk or dairy products in the first 1-3 days

 

Intimate piercings

Intimate piercings include, for example, the clitoral hood piercing, the Prince Albert, the frenum, the Hafada, etc.

The following things should be taken into account during the healing period:

 

no sexual activity whatsoever


no clothing that is too tight


breathable underwear (not synthetic)

 

Skin and cartilage piercings

These piercings include, for example, the belly button piercing, eyebrow piercing, helix piercing, tragus, etc.

The following things should be taken into account during the healing period:

 

Make-up, cream and powder must not get into the wound


Be particularly careful with hair dyes!
Under no circumstances should these get into the wound.

 

If problems should arise, please note the following:

You should definitely visit us if

 

You cannot tolerate the care product (increased itching, burning or rash)


Allergic reactions appear (the wound does not heal, on the contrary, it feels increasingly uncomfortable, oozes, bleeds or suppurates, there may be a rash around the wound)


If the piercing becomes infected, under no circumstances simply remove the jewelry! The wound secretion can become encapsulated in the wound canal and lead to severe, deep inflammation. This may then need to be treated surgically.

 

Allergies

Since the piercing wound is an unprotected wound, the jewelry for initial use contains an absolute minimum of allergenic substances, such as nickel. Despite everything, allergic reactions can occur. For example, through jewelry, through substances entering the wound canal or through care products. In such cases, please speak to us. Be it jewelry or care products, we always have an alternative.

Don't worry - which is completely normal

The following things are completely normal and should not cause you any discomfort. Of course, always provided that the symptoms mentioned do not last longer than a few days. Basically, the following always applies: If you feel unsafe - ask us or come and see us!

After piercing can

 

the pierced area of the body swells (cooling helps) and there is redness around the puncture sites (this remains for the first few weeks)


the wound burns and/or hurts slightly


slight bleeding may occur


Fluid comes out of the wound (no pus) - white / yellowish milky wound secretion


It feels like your piercing has "ups and downs" - one minute it felt healed, then again it didn't


There may be unexpected restrictions for you because certain movements may be uncomfortable for you
