Healing time is different depending on the part of your body that you get pierced. Areas that are softer, with no cartilage, such as ear lobes, will heal faster than other areas. Healing times can vary from person to person and will also depend on how well you follow our recommended aftercare instructions. Any piercing can take up to a year or even longer to heal. After these recommended time frames, you may be ready to change over your piercing jewellery:
After the times listed above, you may be able to remove your jewellery for a short time. However, your piercing may begin to shrink. We cannot give you an exact time for how long you can remove your jewellery before it becomes difficult to reinsert. This varies between people. Just remember – never force jewellery into a piercing that has shrunk. If you have any questions, please visit the piercing experts at your local Essential Beauty & Piercing salon.
