6 questions about flat piercing answered
The flat piercing is a recent type of piercing and has conquered the hearts of lovers of this accessory. After all, this type of piercing oozes style and personality. See below some questions on the subject that were answered by the body piercer Maycon:
1. How is the flat piercing done?
Maycon (M): “It is necessary for the professional to analyze the auricular anatomy and check if the ear has a scafa perforation. It is important to carry out a mapping to verify the presence of large or small vessels, because when crossing an important vessel, healing can be compromised”.
2. How to take care of flat piercing?
M: “Cleaning should be done 1x a day, only with saline and cotton swab. The ideal is to use one side of the cotton swab well moistened with serum to pass the “little foot” of the perforation and remove secretions and dirt. Then, with the dry side of the cotton swab, you completely dry the area. Remember to always leave the piercing site dry to avoid infections.” That is, this accessory requires some more intense care, as it is located in an exposed part of the ear.
3. How long does it take for a flat piercing to heal?
M: “Healing takes approximately 8 to 12 months, depending on the body, care and material of the jewelry used”.
4. Does piercing the flat piercing hurt?
M: “The sensitivity of the flat perforation is similar to that of other points in the ear that also have cartilage”. Also, the procedure is very quick, so the pain is super easy.
5. How to remove the flat piercing?
M: “The jewelry must wait at least 4 months, when the healing is already advanced. To remove the jewelry, go to a professional who will do the procedure for you, because you can completely clean your ear and remove it later. Thus, you prevent the removal from taking dirt into the perforation. Remembering that if you remove the jewelry before the healing period is complete and leave nothing, you may lose the piercing.”
6. What care is needed after drilling?
M: “Avoid fatty foods, as they can slow down healing, wait 2 weeks to return to intense physical exercises, because friction and pressure can harm it too. And most importantly: it is essential to maintain cleaning care for 1 month”.
