Maintaining Your Healed Piercings – Body Piercing Basics EP93

#maintaining #piercing #DesMoines
In the 93rd episode in our Youtube series Body Piercing Basics, DaVo covers what you should do to keep your piercings healthy after the piercing has healed.

Show Notes:
Stages of healing:
Acceptance and recovery
Healing and growth
Seasoning and strengthening
Cleaning the jewelry:

Non-oral Piercings:
Sebum:
Oily Waxy substances that have the consistency of cream cheese and smell awful. Your body produces it to coat, moisturize, and protect the skin.
The Body can produce this inside of piercings and mix with dead skin cells. Often it can collect only to be noticed when the jewelry is moved.
Often confused with the discharge a healing piercing produces
More noticeable on thicker jewelry.
Metal Jewelry can simply be cleaned in the shower under running water with a little bit of soap. If the piercing is easy to move rotate the jewelry out and clean the area with your hand or washcloth
Organic jewelry(woods, stone, antler, and bone) should be removed and cleaned as the manufacture suggests. Since often there in inlays and other factors to consider always contact the manufacture to avoid destroying the jewelry. Usually cleaning will involve soaking the jewelry and then conditioning it with natural oil.
Glass jewelry – Should be fine cleaning with soap and water.
Plastic jewelry – I do not suggest wearing for long periods of time and should just be replaced/

Oral Piercings:
Plaque – builds up on and collects on the jewelry. Most often on the bottom ball of tongue piercings. But may cause issues with different piercings.
The Jewelry can be brushed along with your teeth.
Once a month or when needed, remove the jewelry and soak in denture cleaner then brush. If you can’t get denture cleaner, bushing with a small amount of toothpaste should be fine. In both cases.

Abuse:
The piercing is hard metal through softer organic tissue. Stress on the piercing like pulling on the jewelry or twisting the jewelry can cause damage and trauma.
Avoid stress and contact with the piercing
Abuse of a healed piercing can damage tissue and feel like it is not healed
If there has been trauma, give your body time to recover

Jewelry:
Leave the jewelry in at all times, only removing to change or clean jewelry.
If possible have your piercer change the jewelry for you. Especially the first few times.
When possible have the jewelry sterilized between wears and use a water-based lubricant with no additives to insert the jewelry.
Avoid daily wear of jewelry that has points, edges or things hanging from it that can easily be caught on things.
Avoid heavy jewelry
Avoid drastic changes in the shape or style of the jewelry
If you notice issues with new jewelry, replace it with the original jewelry asap
If jewelry is threaded or threadless check the ends regularly to ensure they are secure
Make sure to only buy quality certified biocompatible jewelry. Though healed piercing may be less sensitive to materials, it can still cause issues.
Always store your jewelry alone in an airtight container or bag.
Avoid Silver and Sterling Jewelry. Especially in areas of the body that are more acceptable to silver poisoning.
