Medical ear piercing by a family doctor you can trust.
We use the Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing System, available only to physicians. This provides your child with a safer and more sanitary alternative to the mall or jewelry stores.
Cost $99 includes procedure, earrings, after care supplies
We use disposable cartridges that are replaced with every piercing. Unlike mall jewelry which commonly has the risk of allergic reaction to nickel in it, we use only medical grade plastic to eliminate this risk.
We are trained in sterile technique and wound care management.
Starting at 4 months old. This helps to ensure that children have had their first round of vaccinations. It also gives the ear lobes time to grow more.
Earlobes only at this time.
We offer simultaneous piercing to decrease anticipation anxiety.
We use only medical-grade plastic. You can decide between diamond or pink. The plastic decreases risk of irritation, infection, and allergy. We use a piercing gun, which makes it quick and with as little discomfort as possible. Everything is completely sterile and nothing that touches the ear is ever reused.
Infection is a risk with any procedure. We make sure everything is sterile and as long as you cleanse appropriately, this shouldn’t be an issue.
If there is any soreness, redness, or pus at the site of piercing, see your doctor within 24 hours.
In other rare cases, especially with tiny earrings, the stud or earring can be “swallowed up” by the earlobe and result in pain/discomfort/infection. The studs we use have large front and back pieces so it would be very difficult for these studs to get stuck in the lobe.
It’s ideal to leave in piercing studs for six weeks because piercing studs are a bit thicker, and over time the holes contract. If an earring happens to fall out, replace it with any earring available to keep the hole open.
Nope. We are offering this as a service to our patients and the community.
Reach out to our office to have an appointment set up. It usually takes 15-20 minutes including counseling on after care.
