Smiley Healing and Aftercare Instructions

When cared for properly, your smiley piercing can possibly be healed enough to change the jewelry within six to eight weeks. However, we always say that any piercing can take six months to one year to fully heal. This means that you don’t want to leave your jewelry out for any extended period of time until then. Although you may notice mild pain and swelling after the piercing, the discomfort should only last a few days. To prevent infection, be sure to follow the aftercare regime that your Body Piercer will go over with you and immediately seek medical attention if you feel the piercing is infected. Signs of infection may include one or all of the following; pain and swelling become severe, your piercing hurts worse than when you originally got it pierced, or green discharge and/or a foul odor become apparent.

During the healing period, you should rinse your mouth two to three times a day with ‘Swish-It!’ mouth rinse. It is easiest to remember if you swish right after brushing your teeth. You can also put our non-iodized sea salt into a water bottle and bring with you to clean your piercing throughout the day. For the first few days of healing, you should make it a priority not to smoke, drink alcohol, or touch the jewelry itself. Also be sure to avoid spicy, acidic and crunchy foods that can irritate the area.
