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.
