what to expect from Ear Piercings
There are some modern techniques to pierce ears for earrings. A standard method uses a hollow needle. First, the aesthetician marks the part of the earlobe where the earring will be inserted. Next, numbing medication is applied before a hollow needle is inserted to make the ear hole, and the earring stud is placed into the hollowed top of the needle and pulled through to the hole. The needle is then removed and the earring post remains. The earring chosen for the initial piercing typically should be hypoallergenic, preferably made of titanium, 14-karat gold, or surgical-grade steel.
Other methods involve ear-piercing instruments. One piercing device uses a spring to push the starter stud through the earlobe. Another uses a disposable cartridge system that operates the same with an automatic spring, but the stud holder and clasp holder are disposable for safety. Finally, there are hand clasp devices that allow the aesthetician to manually push the stud through the earlobe.
An earlobe piercing takes 4 – 6 weeks to heal. Follow these aftercare instructions carefully to avoid infection:
- Always wash your hands before touching your ears or earrings
- Apply the ear care solution as directed
- Gently rotate the earring stud after applying the ear care solution
Okey Weight Management Clinic Reviews
Very professional, I absolutely love this place
I love Dr. Okey & his staff...they are welcoming, very laid back and always accommodating. The treatments i have done there are very competitive with pricing, and give results right away, with exercise and a proper diet. Skin is smoother and firmer. They offer several new treatments that help firm & tone, you get real results, when exercise and diet aren't enough in certain problem places.
Nothing but positive vibes from both the physician and the staff. Felt very well taken care of and will tell all my friends about the clinic
