Nose Piercing Healing Yes, you can! These days, both men and women go in for nose piercing because it is looks really cool and if you know the right tips and tricks – you can really heal your nose fast! 🙂

That is not surprising considering the variety of jewelry you get to wear once you get a nose piercing done. There are different kinds of nose piercing, depending on the look that you prefer.

Whichever type you go in for, the time for nose piercing healing is more or less the same, which is approximately eight to twelve weeks from the day you get your nose pierced. It is vital that your nose piercing healing happens without a hitch so as to avoid any infection.

Types of nose piercing

You must have seen quite a few people with nostril piercing. But there are two other types, which are the septum piercing and the bridge piercing. Any surface piercing takes more time to heal. This is the case with bridge piercing as well, which is a surface piercing and may take up to 6 months to heal. Also take into account that if you go for a bridge piercing it may get rejected – it depends on each individual how your body will react on the bridge piercing.




If you have a nostril piercing, the healing process can be as little as a few weeks . Amazingly, a nostril piercing tends to close up the quickest if you remove the jewelry. So do not risk removing the jewelry if you want to hang on to the piercing! In fact, don’t even think of changing the jewelry before the piercing fully heals since it can be rather painful.

When you get the piercing done, your piercer will instruct you on what to do for the nose piercing healing. It would be better to follow these instructions carefully. If you apply makeup, you must take care to cleanse your face to avoid dirty make up from sticking to the piercing. You may be told to clean the piercing with an antibacterial soap. Any lotions must be avoided for a few weeks. If you smoke, this is your best chance to think about giving it up. Smoking will result in the build up of tiny residue in your nose and prolong the healing process.

Sometimes, in spite of everything, the piercing might get infected. In most cases, it would resemble a pimple. If the pain is unbearable, contact your piercer instead of trying to remove your nose ring or stud by yourself. If you remove the jewelry while the infection is still there, it will worsen. Salt water soaks can tackle the infection.

To speed up the nose piercing healing, never touch the piercing. And take care while wiping your face as your towel can hook on to the nose ring! 🙂




Nose Piercing

Nose Piercing

Nose piercing is quite common these days and there are several different ways in which it can be done. Typically the most common tends to be the nostril piercing and the most common jewellery worn in a nose piercing is a nose stud.

It is subtle yet it is easily seen so it still makes a big enough statement. As well as being a cosmetic statement, in India nose piercings are also worn for cultural reasons.

In fact, nose piercing in America and the UK became largely popular due to the Indian culture. The reason why women do wear nose piercings in India is because they are said to make childbirth easier. They are also a Hindu mark of honour to the Goddess of marriage, Parvathi.

Different Types of Nose Piercings

As well as the nostril piercing, there are other types of nose piercings that you could get. A septum piercing is one of the lesser common ones and it tends to make the biggest statement. It looks just like a bull ring and it sticks out of both nostrils.

There is an option you can take if you would like to hide the piercing when you have to stick to a certain dress code and that is to purchase a septum retainer. That basically allows you to push the nose ring up inside your nose until it is needed again.

The least common nose piercing is the bridge piercing. This is done through the small part of the skin on the bridge of the nose. Most people tend to wear bar rings in these types of piercings, though seamless studs also look quite good. There is a warning with the bridge piercing too and that is that it has a high rejection rate. So there is a good chance that your body will reject the piercing.

Overall nose piercings are common and they can look really good. As with all piercings they will need time to heal so proper aftercare is essential. There are so many different types of nose piercing jewellery to choose from. So if you do choose to have your nose pierced you should easily be able to find something to suit your tastes!

Body Piercing Healing

Body Piercing Healing This is the eternal question I hear very often – when can I change my belly (nose, tongue, nipple, etc…) ring?

Yes, the majority of you who get body piercings just can’t await when it will be possible to change the initial piece of body jewelry and insert a new one!

That’s understandable; however, you have to know at least the approximate body piercing healing times to assess the condition of your fresh body piercing.

This is very important due to two main reasons.

First – if you ignore body piercing healing time of the particular piercing site, you may damage the half-healed piercing by inserting new body jewelry too early. This in turn will result in prolonged healing time.

Secondly – you increase the likelihood of getting a body piercing infection. You see – the longer the fresh piercing remains unhealed, the more likely the infection is to creep into the wound.

So as you can see, you really shouldn’t rush your body and ignore its natural healing speed. You can read this belly piercing story, for instance, to see what can happen if a girl is too willing to change the initial body jewelry!

Well, the next things to understand about body piercing healing are the three stages of the piercing healing process.

1st Stage Of Body Piercing Healing – Growing New Skin

After the piercing has been performed, the first thing that you body needs to do is – stop the bleeding process and prevent bacteria from entering the wound. Although not every body piercing will result in a visible infection, it’s been actually reported that 10 to 20% of all body piercings result in mild infections!

But generally every piercing will be swollen right after the piercing has been performed and also some discharge will appear during the following days. It’s just the body’s natural defense system in action and it pushes the damaged tissue and bacteria out of the tiny wound.

Very soon after the piercing a temporary clot of scab is formed to prevent the bleeding and protect the wound. Then your body starts forming new skin cells and within a few weeks after the piercing a new skin layer has formed!

However, you have to understand that this new skin is very fragile and vulnerable to mechanical intervention, so it should be taken for granted that the initial body jewelry remains in the piercing during this stage!

And also bear in mind – no rough handling, no exposure to body fluids and dirt. The fresh piercing can still easily get infected, so you have to make sure it stays sound and clean!

In the table below you can find approximate haling times of the most popular body piercings. Just bear in mind – it shows the duration of the first stage of the healing, so it is actually wise to wait twice as much to make sure the skin thickens and it’s safe to insert a new piece of body jewelry!

Body Piercing Healing Times

2nd Stage Of Body Piercing Healing – Full Healing

During this stage of body piercing healing the new skin gains thickness and becomes more like a real skin. The full healing takes about the same time as the first stage of body piercing healing (as seen in the table above).

But even though this stage is called full healing, the new skin still doesn’t reach its mature stage. However, you can safely change your initial body jewelry at this stage because the skin isn’t that vulnerable to damage and infections anymore!

3rd Stage Of Body Piercing Healing – Maturing

This is when the body piercing gains all the features of a permanent skin. The scar-like tissue is formed into a tube called fistula, and this is when the piercing wound can’t close up anymore. But of course, it depends on the piercing type.

For example, tongue piercings can close up at any stage; some also say that due to the vascular nature of the face the facial piercings can also close up even though they’re fully healed.

But it’s all down to the particular person’s body type and features. So one may walk for years with an eyebrow ring taken out, while another may have it close up after a few months!
