Swelling will normally occur during the first 3-7 days. During this time, it is important to drink plenty of cold liquids. Sucking on ice cubes can also help to reduce swelling. We recommend that you use H2OCEAN mouth wash which can be purchased at Black Line Studio. It is ideal that the piercing be cleaned after eating, smoking, or drinking anything other than water. Stay away from dairy products and beer for 4 weeks. Avoid kissing and oral sex which can spread bacteria.
We recommend using Trisan Anti-Bacterial Skin Cleanser, which can be purchased at Black Line Studio, to properly care for these types of piercings. Before cleansing the piercing, be sure to thoroughly wash your hands with soap. For most effective cleansing, apply the cleanser to a cotton swab and softly work it around both sides of the piercing. Afterwards, rinse the piercing thoroughly to ensure all of the Trisan, crust, and discharge has been removed. Apply H2OCEAN Sea Salt & Lysozyme Spray, 2-4 times daily. Spray the newly cleaned area, let sit for 5 minutes then hold a warm compress against the area for 5 minutes.
Be sure to avoid:
Most piercing aftercare products are designed for either exterior skin piercing areas such as ears and navel or sensitive areas such as lips and tongues. Now one product has the germicidal power to handle the needs of both. In cooperation with professional piercers, we’ve developed a new ready-to-use CPC-MSM Complex formula. X-Pression® Extra Strength Antiseptic Spray contains Cet-C. It’s water-based and contains no alcohol that can burn new piercings. And the convenient 2 oz spray bottle fits easily in your pocket or purse.
Keeping bacteria and germs out of piercings is vital for safe healing. Blue Wave™is a natural sterile solution that helps to accelerate the healing process and reduce lumps and scars.
When used on a daily basis, saline solutions help to remove dried discharge and secretions. Blue Wave™ may be used on both oral and dermal piercings. It works well in conjunction with an antiseptic such as those found in X-Pression® Piercing Aftercare, and anti-bactericidals such as those in Tattoo Goo® Deep Cleansing Soap. Packed in a 2 oz pump spray, Blue Wave™ is convenient to carry in pocket or purse.
