As part of the piercing process, your Technician will take you through the aftercare steps both before and then after the piercing. We know that with the anticipation and excitement of getting your new piercing, you may not be paying full attention, so your Studex piercer will provide you with a copy of the daily steps to follow and some key “Dos and Don’ts”.

Newly available for Studex Partners, your technician may stock the Studex ADVANCED Piercing AftercareStudex ADVANCED promotes accelerated skin recovery for post piercing aftercare with the ability to change your earrings sooner. Reducing the risk of redness and inflammation post piercing, it is a revolutionary new aftercare product. Studex After Piercing Lotion is the alternative for use straight after your new piercing and throughout the healing period. A pH balanced solution, it will act as a flushing agent as well as soothing and promoting healing.

Always handle your new piercing with clean hands and remember to carefully rotate at least twice a day, cleaning carefully at the front and back.

Keep hair spray, soap, shampoo and other preparations away from the ear. After shampooing, the ear should be rinsed with clear water and then cleansed with your Studex Aftercare product.


How long do I need to keep my piercing jewellery in for?

If using the Studex ADVANCED Piercing Aftercare follow aftercare steps for 3 weeks for the ear lobe and 8 weeks for the upper flat cartilage before carefully removing the jewellery.

If using Studex After Piercing Lotion; 6 weeks continuously for the ear lobe, 12 weeks for the upper flat cartilage and a minimum of 8 weeks for the nose.

Remember once you have removed the jewellery, you will need to clean the site thoroughly and continue to wear hypoallergenic jewellery continuously to prevent the piercing from closing.

We recommend using straight post (not curved) earrings continuously for the first 6 months from piercing.

Can I take the jewellery out before the healing period?

Removing the jewellery too soon could affect the healthy healing of your piercing and you may struggle to reposition after removing. The recommended guidelines are based on over 4 decades of experience so trust us, we know what is best for your piercing. If you are looking to change earrings quicker, Studex ADVANCED is your Aftercare Solution of choice.

Will my jewellery fall out?

On piercing, Studex earrings connect automatically with the butterfly to keep the earrings in place. Locked into a special "notch" the butterfly is designed to stay in place and not move up and down the post, therefore keeping cleaning easy and helping healing. It is really important that you do not move the safety butterfly along the post.

The traditional butterfly back is preferred by Studex due to its easiness to clean and ability to prevent dirt and bacteria from collecting and thus risking infection. After healing the butterflies can be removed. If they appear a little stiff, simply apply solution and twist to ease before releasing.

The design and positioning of the Medisept nose piercing studs ensure that the slightly flared post keep the jewellery in place for the healing period.
