How long does it take to heal?

Updated: May 4

The lengths of time it takes each piercing to heal are ESTIMATED AVERAGES and everyone heals at their own rate.

It's important to allow your piercing plenty of time to heal completely before changing it to avoid complications.

Some piercings need to be downsized (changed to a smaller post or barbell) before they are completely healed but this should only be done with the help of a piercer using sterile jewelruy and tools.

Please visit your piercer for a check up once the swelling has gone down completely to determine if you are ready to downsize.

Downsizing will prevent unsightly bumps, migration, and crooked healing.
