Q. How do I prepare for nose piercing?

The process of nose piercing involves sensitive, internal skin which can be quite painful. Make sure to find a trusted body piercing shop that will finish the process with utmost safety and precision. Discussing the process with a professional before getting the piercing is a good idea. Get your nose examined beforehand for the kind of piercing you wish to get done.

Q. What are the steps involved in piercing?

A typical piercing journey involves the following steps:

  • Look out for a clean and safe studio that guarantees sterile methods.
  • Your piercer will sterilize the cartilage or the spot of piercing using sterile gloves to decrease the chance of an infection.
  • A piercing spot would be suggested by the professional after consulting with you and further be pierced.

Q. What are the risks of nose piercing?

As you breathe through your nose, there is a chance of infection, bleeding, nerve damage or allergic reaction developing in it after you get the nose pierced. Proper aftercare is essential to avoid infections. If the infection occurs, seek medical help immediately.

Q. How do I select the right jewelry for my nose piercing?

The type of nose piercing you get determines the jewelry you need for it. Depending on the type, location and personal preference, you can select from hoops, rings, studs and more options. Do keep in mind that a certain type of jewelry fits a specific type of nose piercing. Also, the metal you choose for your piercing is essential to avoid allergic reactions.

Q. How much does nose piercing hurt?

The level of pain tolerance varies from person to person but mild pain is common to people. The pain itself is a combination of mild sharpness and pressure but it is over extremely quickly and lasts only for less than a second. The type of nose piercing also determines the pain experienced during the nose piercing procedure.

Q. What are the side effects of nose piercing?.

You will experience some pain for a few days after you have pierced your nose. You may also have some swelling around your piercing for up to 3 weeks. It takes about 2 to 4 months for a pierced nose to heal completely.

Q. Can piercing be cleaned with just water?

It is advised not to soak your piercing in water, other than a saline solution. It is also recommended to stay away from swimming pools, hot tubs and saunas until your nose has completely healed.

Q. How much time does a piercing take to get completely healed?

Healing time varies from individual to individual and piercing to piercing. It also depends on your body’s rate of healing, and the care the piercing is given. The following can significantly lengthen your healing time:

  • Touching the piercing with unwashed hands,
  • Moving the jewelry throughout the day,
  • Contact with bodily fluids and using inappropriate cleaning solutions.

Q. How can nose piercing heal faster?

You can expedite the healing by following these steps:

Cleaning your nose piercing 2 to 3 times a day
Using a chamomile compress
Cleansing with a sea salt soak
Using gentle, unscented soap on your piercing
Avoiding swimming pools and saunas for a few days

Q. What are the signs of improper healing?

These are the usual signs of improper healing of your pierced nose:

Unusual itchiness
Pain or burning sensation
Foul smell around the piercing
Greenish discharge from the piercing

Immediately see a doctor if you notice any of the above signs.

Q. Can you numb the area before piercing?

Our professionals do not suggest anesthetics as injectable and topical anesthetics can be dangerous for someone who does not know the proper application. Only licensed medical professionals can legally administer anesthetics. In addition, an experienced piercer knows how to do the process carefully without causing long-inducing pain.

Q. Who should avoid piercing?

People with the below-listed cases are at a higher risk of infection or complications and should avoid piercing.

  • Under medication – such as anticoagulants, immunosuppressive medication and some corticosteroids
  • Chemotherapy treatment – which reduces your immunity and makes you more susceptible to infection
  • Breast implants – in the case of nipple piercing, particularly those implants located in front of the chest muscle
  • Other disorders – including heart valve disease, rheumatic fever and skin infections
