Such questions strike your mind when you get nose piercing or before that. Here we have answered such questions so that you get right information regarding that.

How long will it take my piercing to heal?

It can be anywhere between 6 months to year depending on your aftercare and changes in body. One more thing is that healing in piercing occurs in “on and off” pattern as a fully healed area can be turned red or sore any time.

In this scenario, keep the jewelry in place for at least two months and keep it clean. Ask your piercer for aftercare.

You should change your initial jewelry when your healing period is over, which is of 2 to 6 months.

Which is a Right Jewelry for Piercing?

Avoid wearing cheap or allergic metals like silver, nickel, sterling and artificial. The safest metals for piercing are titanium, gold and surgical steel.

Does Nose Piercing Cause Risk?

Body piercing causes risk like skin scarring, injury and infection, if goes wrong. So, you must get it done from an experienced piercer and follow the aftercare to keep it safe from such issues.
