Facial Piercing Tips
Have you decided to get piercings on your face? Good for you! You're breaking the only known standards of beauty and allowing yourself to make your own rules and not become like anyone else. But before you do the deed, read these tips to make sure you won't be seeing regrets on the horizon.
KNOW THE TYPES OF FACIAL PIERCINGS
Which area of your face would you want to have pierced? Before you actually go to your piercer, it's better that you already have a type in mind rather than jumping into anything random that you would end up regretting later on, especially because it's very visible. There are several types of facial piercings. These include the eyebrow piercing, the nose piercing and the lip piercing, all done on any part of the indicated facial part. There is also the anti-eyebrow piercing, done on the upper cheekbone, just below the eye; and the bites, which refer to two piercings done on either side of the lip or at the top and bottom.
WHERE TO GET IT DONE
Getting facial piercings is becoming increasingly popular these days so it really isn't that hard to look for the right piercing studio. To be safe, go for an established one, home to licensed and trained piercers. It may cost you more, but the quality and your safety should never be compromised. You can search online for reviews of the studio you are eyeing for.
Cleaning is an essential part of facial piercing aftercare. For this, you can use a sterile saline water solution or perfume-free antimicrobial soap. Do not use hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, harsh soaps or other commercial products. They may cause skin irritation and lengthen wound healing.
Purchase packaged saline solution from pharmaceutical centers, or make it at home by dissolving ¼ teaspoon sea salt (not iodized salt) in 1 cup lukewarm water. Invert the same cup over the pierced site. Likewise, soak the area in this solution for about 5-10 minutes, two times in a day.
After cleaning, the next important step is drying. Do not use bath towel for rubbing the area. Everything that you use over the area should be sterile and free of microbes. Disposable tissue paper is the best to dab the area dry.
