Frequently asked questions and answers
At what age can a baby's ears be pierced?
The recommended age is the age parents are comfortable with. For me, it’s a matter of earlobe size. Several countries pierce at birth. Here in Quebec the urban legend says that it is 3 months. ☺️
It really is up to you. I often pierce babies a few weeks old or even a few days old. It depends on cultures, customs, on you. We don’t judge your choice, as long as the earlobe is big enough. If you have any doubts about the size of your baby’s earlobes, you can privately send me a photo with your thumb next to it for reference.
In conclusion, the younger they are at the time of piercing, the sooner they get used to wearing earrings, and the less likely they are to play with them. 😊
Know that we pierce adults too. 😁
After how long can you change jewelry ?
To ensure full recovery from the piercing, it is recommended to wait 6 weeks before changing jewelry.
What is the quality of the jewelry material ?
Do you pierce with a punch or a needle ?
My device is the most innovative instrument that benefits from advanced and patented technology.
Our jewelry is sealed and sterilized in disposable cartridges, FDA and Health Canada approved.
My device is a springless tool that optimizes the piercing process gently in the earlobe with our specifically designed jewelry sharp enough to pierce without tearing tissue, and without bursting blood vessels.
Healing is optimal, no swelling, no blood or side effects. The “no touch” ear piercing process highlights safety, hygiene and ease of use.
What are the risks of earlobe infections?
Tip: To facilitate the insertion of the new jewel in the earlobe, dip the tip of the jewel in Polysporin cream, or in ointment.
How much does it cost?
What care is needed after piercing ?
Even though there are hardly any side effects and there is no swelling after the piercing, because it is done very gently, here are the steps to follow for maintenance after piercing:
In a cup of boiled water, dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Keep in the fridge.
Soak a cotton swab in this water well, then place a good drop in front and another behind the earring, then turn the jewelry on itself. NEVER REMOVE THE JEWELRY TO CLEAN THE EAR!
Repeat cleaning once a day for 7-10 days. Discard the water every 2 days.
Wait at least 6 weeks before changing the earring.
An after-piercing lotion is also available on site for $ 10 taxes included.
Ps: Your child will not have a fever after the piercing.
Is the numbing cream really effective against pain?
The numbing cream I use for the earlobes is the best on the market and has been proven to work for thousands over 24 years! On the other hand, just as some people need 6 punctures at the dentist to freeze, and just as some moms don’t freeze with the epidural, some babies do not freeze with the cream. That’s life. Unfortunately, we can’t control everything and I don’t have a crystal ball to know who is freezing and who is not in advance.

Can i bring my own jewelry?
The device I use is not a punch but a springless tool that optimizes the jewel’s penetration into the earlobe very gently. The jewelry I pierce with is specifically designed for this device. So I cannot use any other jewelry for this purpose. I have what is needed with me at all times for every piercing event.
If you later wish to change the earrings and use your own, it will be best to wait at least 6 weeks to ensure the full recovery of the piercing.
