Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak we are not currently offering ear piercing appointments and are not scheduling appointments for future dates. When the risk of COVID-19 has been minimized we will resume these procedures. All patients who had appointments cancelled due to Coronavirus will be contacted to reschedule when we re-open our ear piercing schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
Ear piercing appointments are available with Dr. Neha Suri and Natalia Darling, PA-C. Appointment availability is limited and only offered during restricted time slots based on the providers availability.
The cost is $95 and includes a pair of 24 karat gold stud earrings and the option to use numbing cream.
- Children must be 2 months of age or older and need to be up to date on their vaccinations.
- Children between the ages of 2 months – 9 months and those older than 4 years of age tolerate the procedure the best.
- Non-patients of Potomac Pediatrics may call to schedule an appointment for this service.
- $50 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of scheduling. Cancellations and reschedules must be made 24 hours in advance.
To make the procedure more comfortable for your child you may opt to have numbing cream placed on your child’s ear lobes prior to the piercing at no extra cost. If you would like to have numbing cream you will need to arrive 45-60 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment time. You may also request a prescription for the numbing cream be sent to your pharmacy. Your pharmacy copays will apply. When applying the cream at home please apply it to the lower ear lobes at least 40-60 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
Ear care after piercing: The earrings used at the time of the piercing should be left in place for 8 weeks after the procedure. Cleanliness is essential. The earrings should be rotated in the ears twice a day and earlobes cleaned with alcohol or other antiseptics twice a day. Newly pierced ears should be protected from irritants such as hairspray and cosmetics.
Earrings: We are not a reseller and do not sell these earrings by themselves. Please be advised that if you purchase earrings prior to an ear piercing appointment we will require that you use the earrings provided by our office.
Please note that the ear piercing fee is non-refundable and must be paid in full prior to services being rendered.
