Blomdahl medical ear piercing is developed entirely upon what is known as "modern septic technique". All products and methods are safely designed to avoid the spreading of infections during piercing. The sterile method guarantees that the piercing is hygienic and safe.
Piercing materials are "skin-friendly" and suitable for everyone, even for those with an allergy. Earrings are made from carefully selected plastic or titanium of pure medical quality.
Medical plastic contains zero nickel, which eliminates the risk of developing a nickel allergy. It is recommended for anyone who already has a nickel sensitivity. Medical-grade titanium is the safest of all metals because it binds what little nickel there is extremely well. Little or no nickel is released into the skin or surrounding tissue. Titanium is accepted extremely well by the body and is being used more and more in implants and medical applications.
When air can circulate around a new piercing, it will heal better. This is why the earring backs on Blomdahl piercing earrings are always fixed at the tip of the post, where they also encapsulate the sharp tip. The earring backs cannot be moved like on regular earrings. That way the air can always circulate around the new piercing.
What else do I need to know?
