Ear piercing after care advice 

Please read the guidance below carefully if you have booked in for ear piercing. Please note, however, that the advice is not a substitute for the advice of a medical professional, but merely assistance to help you our client to get the best from your treatment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch or ask.


  • Wash hands thoroughly before touching studs or ear.

  • Cleanse front and back of the ear 2 times a day with Caflon Natural Solution without removing studs. 

  • Then rotate studs 2 or 3 times, 90º left and 90º right, i.e. a quarter turn only

  • In between cleansing, the ear should be kept dry.

  • Keep hair spray, soap, shampoo and other preparations away from the ear.

  • After shampooing, the ear should be rinsed with clean water and then cleansed with caflon Natural Solution as described above.

  • The piercing area should be cleansed with Caflon Natural Solution, then kept dry, especially after bathing, swimming or exercise.


  • Remove studs or handle your ears and/or studs unnecessarily.

  • Push the butterfly along the post towards the ear – the butterfly must always be positioned of the tip of the post. 

  • Feel the position each time you clean the ear – it must feel smooth. This ensures that the earring remains LOOSE during the healing period. This is essential as too tight may lead to inflammation.


  • Leave studs in the ears for 6 weeks continuously (12 weeks for cartilage).

  • After 6 weeks (12 weeks for cartilage), the stud can be removed and other post-type earrings may be worn continuously.

  • Use only post-style earrings continuously for the first 6 months from piercing.

  • The post should be surgical stainless steel or other hypo-allergenic material.

  • Minor pain/redness may occur immediately – this is normal, this will settle within 48 hours provided proper after-care is carried out. If undue pain/swelling/redness occurs at any time, seek medical advice before removing the ear-piercing stud.
