The only thing you should be putting on a healing piercing is a sterile saline solution.
We stock one here at Bloody Mary’s called Neilmed®. It has a fine mist applicator which means you can spray your sterile saline solution straight onto your new piercing and then pat the residue dry with a clean piece of kitchen roll. Super simple, right?
To clean your new piercing we strongly recommend that you use a trusted 0.9% sterile saline solution spray.
You may have been told in the past to make your own saline solution (sea salt and boiling water) or buy a bottle of premixed saline solution from a pharmacy, but we have discovered a much more effective and easier aftercare solution, 0.9% sterile saline solution spray.
The reason why we recommend a spray is to make sure no bacteria can enter once opened.
Some people might think that if they have a bottle saline solution in their medicine cabinet or first aid box at home then that will do.
It will not. If you were to use a premixed bottle it must be a fresh bottle every time you clean which will be extremely expensive!
If you make your own solution there is no way of knowing that the solution is completely sterile or you are mixing the correct percentage of sea salt to water and you may end up drying out your piercing, causing more harm or aggravating the skin with boiling water.
0.9% sea salt to water is the perfect balance of salinity to match the body.
We stock Neilmed® in the studio which you can purchase from us straight after your piercing.
We 100% trust and recommend for you to use Neilmed® piercing aftercare spray to treat your piercing because:
