+ What Do I Need To Do?

Just relax!

Once you’ve spoken to our trained professionals about the type of ear piercing and earrings you’d like, our specialist will clean and mark your earlobe and give you time to double check the positioning.

Once you agree that it’s exactly how you’d like it to be, the piercing will be over in a matter of seconds. Before you leave, you’ll receive information on how to care for your new piercings along with a bottle of aftercare lotion to ensure your piercing is left protected and be

encouraged to return for a free check up to ensure that your piercing is healing as it should.

+ Aftercare Advice

  • - Always wash hands thoroughly before touching your studs or ear.

  • - Cleanse the front and back of the ear 2 times a day with the lotion provided without removing your studs.

  • - Apply the lotion to the front and back of the stud and gently slide forward and back, repeat twice daily.

  • - Try to keep products such as hairspray, soap and shampoo away from the ear as this will slow the healing process.

  • - After washing your hair, the ear should be rinsed with water and the lotion applied to the piercing as above. It’s important to ensure the ear piercing is kept dry in order to aid healing, particularly after swimming and exercise.

  • - Don’t remove the studs from the ear during the healing process or care procedure.

  • - Keep your hands away from your ears during the day to avoid unnecessary contact.

  • - Make sure you don’t push the clasp towards the ear, along the post as tight earrings may increase chances of infection.

  • - Do not use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to care for newly pierced ears.

Lobe Piercings – We recommend a minimum of 6 weeks to allow the piercing to heal before changing your studs.

+ What We Offer

At Wakefields we have a wide variety of earrings, specifically designed to be worn during the initial healing period. Crafted from 9ct White & Yellow Gold, you’ll be able to choose the style you like prior to our specialist carrying out your piercing.

If you’re allergic to Gold, let us know beforehand and we’ll be able to ensure we have Titanium earrings available as an alternative. This also applies if you require earrings with longer than standard posts.
