  • How is "medical ear piercing" different from other methods?"
    Traditional ear piercing methods present a genuine health hazard. The method that is used can easily transmit blood-borne viruses. The danger is so real that most European countries have banned these methods. Unfortunately, they are still legal and widely available in the USA. Our system uses single-use, disposable cassettes that eliminate the chance of transmission. We use a method known to the health care industry as the “modern aseptic technique”. This method is carried out using single use, sterile, and disposable products. This means that our products and methods are safely designed to prevent and avoid the spreading of infections, blood bourne contaminates and exposure to nickel allergy during the piercing process. This sterile method guarantees that the piercing is hygenic and safe. We also offer the needle piercing method for clients ages 5 and up. This method uses a single use, pre-package and sterilizes needle to pierce the ear. After the piercing, only high quality, medical grade plastic or jewelry is placed in the piercing to ensure optimal healing. Lastly, medical ear piercing is done in private, comfortable, and family friendly environment by medical professionals. It ensures that you and your little one are being offered the safest possible approach to ear piercing.
  • What are the risk of ear piercing?
    Pain-Even without numbing cream the pain is brief and similar to a vaccine injection using our medical piercing system. Some clients may complain of a warm, flushed feeling on their earlobes after the procedure but this is also temporary. At Dangle we offer a numbing cream to further reduce the pain if so desired. We want you or your child's piercing experience to be as safe an enjoyable as possible. Infection- Anytime skin is broken there is a risk of infection. An infected ear piercing may be red, swollen, sore, warm, itchy or tender. Sometimes the piercing oozes blood or white, yellow or greenish pus. A new piercing is an open wound that can take several weeks to fully heal. During that time, any bacteria (germs) that enter the wound can lead to infection.It is important to note that the risk of infections can be greatly reduced through the use of sterilized material during the piercing process and proper cleaning and care during the healing process. At Dangle our piercing method utilizes a single use sterile cartridge to eliminate cross contamination. Our aftercare education materials gives our clients detailed instructions on how to properly care for their piercing during the healing process. Allergic Reaction-Nickel Allergies can be triggered from ear piercing. In the medical community this is known as Allergic Contact Dermatitis. Allergic Contact Dermatitis is an itchy rash that occurs when your skin comes in contact with a typically harmless substance. Nickel is one of the most common causes, and once you develop a nickel allergy, you will always be sensitive to it. Nickel is commonly used as a metal hardener and most metals used for ear piercing contain or "leak" enough nickel to trigger a potential allergic reaction. Fresh piercings allow direct and constant contact between a minor open wound and the metal which contains the nickel. At Dangle we only use Ear Piercing studs that utilize medical grade plastic or medical grade titanium, the most superior non-allergenic metal, thereby eliminating this risk. Keloids-Keloids--Keloids are excessive scar tissue that forms around a wound. They are shiny, smooth and rounded skin elevations, which may form at the piercing site in some clients after the earlobe piercing because of altered wound healing. Keloids tend to run in some families. They are 80% more likely to occur if ears are pierced after age 11 with a general occurrence in people 10 to 30 years of age. Other risk factors for keloids include dark skin, previous keloid formation, and nickel containing earrings. If you have a keloid concern or suffering from any other medical conditions, we highly advise you to consult with your doctor first and have their clearance to get an ear piercing for your own health and safety.
  • Do you pierce both ears simultaneously?
    We pierce one earlobe at a time. This way we can assure symmetry and appropriate earring placements.
  • How do you take care of newly pierced ears?
    Given that ear piercing is in fact a small wound. It is important to take proper care of it throughout the healing period (approx. 6–12 weeks), in order to avoid it getting infected. By following the aftercare instructions, you can minimize the risk of infection. The nurse on staff will teach you how to clean the ears after they are pierced. In our piercing aftercare package you will receive detailed instructions on how to properly clean the hole thoroughly twice a day, using soap and water or our aftercare cleaning solution. If your daughter is old enough to be responsible for her own piercing aftercare we encourage you to empower her to take ownership of her healing process under adult supervision. If your daughter is too young to monitor her own piercing aftercare it is important that you make a commitment to taking care of her ears through daily cleaning for 6 weeks or until they heal.
  • When can the piercing earrings be removed?
    Ear lobe piercing takes between 6-12 weeks to fully heal. We advise waiting until at least 6 weeks before removing and replacing the ear piercing earring. Tip: Encourage your daughter to choose earrings that she will want to leave in and wear everyday for 6 weeks. Do the earrings match all outfits and upcoming occasions? Does she like them enough to keep them in day and night?Pick a style that will make a great first pair?
  • How do I remove the piercing earring?
    To remove the piercing earring: Wash hands and ears thoroughly. A good time to remove the piercing earring is right after a shower/hair wash. With one hand, take hold of the jewelry part (front) of the piercing earring. With the other hand, take hold of the earring back and wiggle it back and forth, until you feel it loosens. Carefully remove the piercing earring and insert a clean earring. Piercing earrings are only intended to be used during the healing period.
  • What should I do if my earring is removed intentionally or accidentally?
    Earrings on new piercings should not be removed for the first 6 weeks. During this time frame, absence of an earring in the fresh piercing will cause it close almost immediatly. We suggest timinig your piercing procedure in a way that your healing process does not conflict with playing sports, frequent swimming, or any other activities that may require you to remove your earrings for any period of time. If due to unforseen circumstances you have to intentinally remove your earring before the 6 week process and you would like to replace them you may book your repierce appointment with us at a discounted rate. Repiercings require an adequate ammount of time for the original piercing to heal. This will typically require a minimum timeframe of 3 weeks. Please note that repiercings at a discounted rate are only valid for clients who recieved their orignal piercing from our nurses. If your piercing earring was accidentally removed due to being pulled out or the earring falling out. We suggest finding a hypoallergenic earring, cleaning it, and placing it the piercing as soon as possible. This will prevent the hole from closing and the need for a repierce. If you are unable to get the earring due to the hole already starting to close DO NOT force it in. This can cause extreme pain, and increase chances of infection or scarring. We suggest making an appointment to come into the office to have the nurses asses the ear and develop a plan for preserving your piercing.
  • What should I consider after completing the 6-12 week healing process?
    It takes up to a year before the holes are completely healed. Hence consider the following: • Always wear earrings. If you go without, the holes can shrink and/or close completely. • Take extra care when changing earrings. The skin that has grown within the holes is still thin and delicate and can easily tear, which may cause an infection. Therefore, always make sure to wash your earrings and your hands before the change, and make sure that the area around the holes is kept clean, dry and airy. If you use earrings with earring backs, do not push the earring back tight against your ear because doing so will increase the risk of infection and interfere with the healing process. • The risk for developing a contact allergy is at its greatest during the first year. This is why it is extra important to wear safe earrings during this time. We have an amazing selection of flat-screwbgck earrings available for purchase after you have completed your healing process and are ready to change out your earrings. Check out to order your earrings online.
  • I had an ear piercing from another place (it is infected/it is in the helix, tragus, cartilage, etc.) are you able to remove/provide medical advice about my piercing?
    We can only provide medical advice and services to those who have had their ear piercing done by our staff. If you have concerns about improper healing or infection from a piercing you have recieved we highly advise you to consult with your primary physician for your own health and safety.
  • Can I bring my own pair of earrings?
    Each piercing package included a pair of our pre-sterilized medical-grade piercing earrings. We offer a variety of styles and options in medical grade plastic and medical grade tittanum in gold and silver. These earrings can be changed after 6 weeks to earrings of your own. However in order to ensure sterility we can not pierce with your personal earrings.
  • What method do you use to pierce?
    We offer medical device piercing and needle piercing options. Our medical device piercing system is the same one used to pierce ears in pediatrician offices and it is only avaliable to medical professional. Everything used in this system comes in sterilized, single use, and pre-packaged packaging. This method is avaliable for clients ages 4 months and up. Our needle piercing is done using single use pre-packaged needles, and sterlized, hypoallergenic earrings. This method is avaliable for clients ages 5 and up.
  • Do I need to worry about my daughter being allergic to the earrings?
    We only pierce ears with Medical Grade Plastic or Medical Grade Titanium. These earring are nickel free and therefore extremely biocompatible for those concerned with allergies.
  • Why is skin friendly jewelry important?
    Skin friendly jewelry is important because contact allergies can develop at any time in life and you can for example become allergic to nickel if you use jewelry containing nickel. Approximately 20 percent of all women suffer from nickel allergy. Although nickel allergy is the most common type of contact allergy, jewelry can contain many other allergens, such as cobalt, gold, epoxies and acrylates. They may also contain toxic, carcinogenic or otherwise unhealthy substances, such as lead, cadmium, formaldehyde, phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA). The skin friendly jewelry we use is developed in consultation with skin specialists to be suitable for everyone who wants to avoid contact allergies and other health risks. We use only the safest materials. Therefore we recommended only using skin friendly materials for children and adults who want to be able to wear jewelry every day, without having to worry about their skin and health.
  • How should the jewelry be cared for?
    Remember to handle your skin friendly jewelry carefully. That way it will stay. beautiful for longer. When you are not using your jewelry, protect it by keeping it in its packaging. Remove your jewelry when showering, avoid exposing your jewelry to makeup, hair care products, alcohol, and other chemicals. In order for your jewelry to retain is lustre, remove and clean it with uncolored soapy water as often as possible. For earrings made out of medical plastic, this also means that the earring backs will be more secure. Earrings made out of medical plastic are usually very resistant, yet the posts, hooks and pendants are soft and need to be handled carefully. In order to make the titanium earring backs tighter and therefore more secure, press the loops of the earring back slightly together before use.
  • What does nickel-safe/nickel-tested/nickel-free mean?
    Even if jewelry is marked nickel-safe/nickel-tested/nickel-free, it does not mean that it is entirely free of nickel. This is because nickel is present in virtually all metal, sometimes as a mixed in ingredient and sometimes in the state of pollution. The EU Nickel Directive (2004/96/EC) limits the amount that jewelry is allowed to leak. However, even if these guidelines are being followed people who are extra sensitive are still at risk to developing nickel allergy. With the earrings we use you will not have to worry about nickel, cadium, lead or any other harmful substances. Our piercing jewelry is developed in consultation with skin specialist to be suitable for everyone, even those who suffer from allergies.
