Medical Ear Piercing in St. Louis
If you haven’t heard, Link Primary Care is now offering medical ear piercing as part of our new line of aesthetic services. Our direct primary care patients have been asking for a safe way to get aesthetic procedures done from the privacy of a clinic. And we responded! Now, you and your family can schedule appointments to address acne, wrinkles, dry skin – and medical ear piercing, too.
Perhaps you’ve avoided getting your or a child’s ears pierced because you were worried about germs and infections. Perhaps you don’t feel comfortable taking a teen into a tattoo parlor or trusting the kid at the mall to make a clean piercing. Thankfully, there’s medical ear piercing at Link Primary Care.
Let’s talk more about the benefits of medical ear piercing.
What is Medical Ear Piercing?
The medial ear piercing method uses a specialized tool, called a piercing gun, which uses a spring-loaded mechanism to quickly and forcefully push a sterilized earring through the earlobe.
It is quick, relatively painless, and done in a controlled and sterile environment. Additionally, the use of specific gauge and size studs ensures that the earlobe is not stretched and prevents complications.
Why Medical Ear Piercing is Safer (and More Pleasant) Than Getting a Piercing at a Store or a Parlor
While you may have a great experience at a non-medical piercing shop, you can always trust that our doctor will follow standard protocol. No surprises – which is good when infections and scarring are at play. Here are a few reasons why patients prefer medical ear piercing:
- Medical ear piercing is less painful than other piercing methods
- Patients have a lower chance of scarring
- Our doctor maintains sterile technique and medical hygiene
- Medical ear piercing reduces the transmission of blood-borne viruses
Other methods of ear piercing, such as needle piercing, can be more painful and can increase the risk of complications. Needles are not as precise as a gun and can cause more tissue damage, which can lead to increased inflammation, bleeding, and prolonged healing times.
If Anything Goes Wrong, You Have Someone to Call
What happens if you get an infection after visiting the mall or a tattoo parlor? You can’t call the store for certified medical advice. But when you receive medical ear piercing from Link Primary, you can always call our team if you have questions or concerns. We’ll be able to point you in the right direction and can have you back in the office if complications occur.
We Use the Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing System
The Blomdahl medical ear piercing system is only available to licensed medical practitioners – which upholds the brand’s reputation as one of the most hygienic ear piercing systems available.
One of the most impressive benefits of the Blomdahl medical ear piercing system is its one-of-a-kind aeration features. In order to prevent infection, earrings must allow air to circulate. Blomdahl earrings are specially crafted to let this air circulate and promote healing. The chance of infection is noticeably lessened with Blomdahl.
Even better, this piercing system allows your ears to heal faster so that you can start wearing your favorite pair of earrings ASAP!
