After receiving a piercing at Adrenaline, it is essential that an aftercare routine is followed to ensure successful healing occurs. We recommend applying Simple Care piercing spray to your new piercing once or twice a day. Begin by washing your hands before handling your piercing and gently remove any crusted matter from the piercing using a cotton swab saturated in warm water. At this point, spray the Simple Care on your piercing and allow to dry. You do not have to wipe away the residual spray. You should not move or rotate the piercing jewellery while cleaning.
In addition to the Simple Care piercing spray, we also recommend a seal salt soak once a day in order to aid in the drainage and removal of exudates form the piercing. Dissolve two to three rocks, or 1/8 teaspoon, of sea salt in an 8oz. glass of warm water. Form a seal with the edge of the glass against your skin and soak the piercing for five minutes. When soaking is complete, be sure to rinse the piercing with warm water and pat dry with clean paper towel. During the healing time, especially in the first 4-6 weeks, avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, lakes, baths, etc. and never touch the piercing with dirty hands.
If you received an oral piercing at Adrenaline, we recommend rinsing with an antibacterial rinse such as Body Art Pro Oral Rinse. Everyday after eating, drinking or smoking, rinse your mouth using a half capful of the Oral Rinse. This rinse is safe to use on all oral piercing as many times as necessary. If you are healing a tongue piercing, be sure to gently brush the piercing, top and bottom twice daily. Try to avoid playing with your piercing during the healing process. Once the swelling from your piercing has gone down (2-4 weeks for tongues and 4-6 weeks for lips), be sure to downsize your jewellery to avoid chipping teeth or gum damage.
After receiving an oral piercing it is a good idea to avoid spicy or acidic foods and try to minimize alcohol, caffeine and smoking as they are causes of irritation to a healing piercing. To relieve swelling during healing time, be sure to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. We also have an official Aftercare Video Guide for you to check out if you have any other concerncs. Happy Healing!

The product that we recommend at Adrenaline to aid in the successful healing of oral piercing is Natural Oral Rinse by Body Art Pro. Oral Rinse is made from natural dead sea salt and distilled water. Oral Rinse maintains a healthy mineral and fluid balance for healing piercing, and it contains natural anti-inflammatory agents to reduce swelling. The high mineral content in Oral rinse detoxifies the skin, helping to revitalize, exfoliate and purify. Oral rinse is safe to use as many times as necessary on a healing piercing.
In addition to the use of Simple Care on a new piercing, we also recommend a warm, uniodized sea salt soak once a day. Sea salt is a natural astringent and, in combination with the warm water, is very useful at drawing exudates form a fresh piercing. Sea salt can also remove skin scales, improve tissue permeability and can maintain pH balance which is vital for cell metabolism in a healing piercing. The heat from the water also increases circulation to allow your piercing to successfully heal as quickly as possible.
