Piercing professionals understand the importance of proper aftercare whenever a body piercing has been performed. In order to allow the skin to heal properly, daily cleansing is very important to prevent infection and secretion build-up. Those with a new piercing might think rubbing alcohol or strong soaps might be the best way to clean their new piercings, but these might actually end up damaging the skin during its healing process. Customers might also be tempted to rub on thick ointments; however, proper air circulation is critical to healing skin, and an ointment will prevent air from reaching it. Additionally, many at-home piercing cleaning solutions contain harsh ingredients that aren’t safe for long-term use, and healing can take some time depending on the location of the piercing.
This is why specially designed piercing aftercare should be the first line of defense when protecting a new piercing. The System One Piercing Aftercare is a convenient spray that is specially formulated to clean piercings to ensure proper healing. Because of the unique ingredients, this spray won’t corrode or damage jewelry, as so many harsh products tend to do. Because of the moist environment around a lip or tongue piercing, healing can take a lot longer. However, keeping it as clean as possible is paramount. The H2Ocean Arctic Ocean Mouth Wash is actually alcohol and fluoride free and contains sea salt, which includes natural enzymes found in saliva. This makes it a more pleasant and less irritating mouthwash. These two products are not only useful to have in a shop, but they add great value to your piercing customers as well.
Maintaining your piercing utensils sterilized is vital. Make the cleaning easier and more effective with a powerful high-performing cleaning system such as the Crest Ultrasonic Cleaner. Utilizing ultrasonic technology, this benchtop cleaner provides optimal cleaning power and reliability. Opt for different sizes that work best for the size of your piercing studio, including a half gallon, a three-quarters gallon and a gallon. All of these cleaners ship free.
