General aftercare instructions
If you are pierced by Big Redz, you will leave with full detailed aftercare instructions, below is a summary of the main points to help look after your piercing.
Lumps on your piercing
Lumps on your piercing can occur for a number of reasons, one of the main reasons is trauma, where your piercing has been knocked or bumped during the early healing process. These lumps are known as hypertrophic scarring and can lead to a more solid lump or keloid if not dealt with.
In the first instance, do not remove the jewellery, you can deal with the issue with the jewellery in place. Follow the instructions below as a start to solving your issue.
In the event of a lump becoming keloid, or solid, we do stock the world famous NoPull discs, which are a medical grade silicone disc which is worn on the jewellery next to the lump. The NoPull disc has been very successful in reducing keloids or getting rid of them completely.
The above advice is provided as just that, advice. These are general rules which we believe help your new Big Redz piercing heal. This list is not exhaustive and we strongly advise you to contact us if you have any concerns which are not covered here, we are very happy to take your call.
DOWNSIZING YOUR JEWELLERY
Make sure you downsize your initial jewellery as soon as your first healing period is over. If you leave the longer/wider jewellery in after the first healing point, you run the risk of it getting caught or pulled and it will cause healing problems for the remainder of the healing time. In the worst cases, it can pull so severely it can cause the jewellery to reject and you will lose the piercing completely.
If you are unsure of what new size you need, please come in to the studio and I will help you but do not leave the oversized jewellery in the piercing after the initial period.
