HOW LONG MY PIERCING WILL TAKE TO HEAL?

The healing time for ear piercings can vary significantly based on the type of piercing and individual factors like your overall health and how well you care for the piercing.

Generally, ear piercings can be categorized into three main groups based on their healing times : 2-4 months, 4-6 months, and 9-12 months.

Keep in mind that everyone's body is different, and healing times can vary. Factors like diet, overall health, and genetics play a role in how quickly your piercing heals.

Regularly monitor the piercing for any signs of infection or prolonged irritation, and consult a professional if you have concerns.

Avoid changing the jewelry until the piercing is fully healed. If a jewelry change is necessary, have it done by a professional piercer.
