Ear Piercing

Be Fashionable With A Piercing

Ear Piercing
Grove Pharmacy has developed a reputation for ear piercing that has spread far beyond Essex County. Some customers have even come from out of state to have their ears pierced by our dedicated staff. We pierce both ears at the same time to ensure a smoother, more convenient experience. No appointments necessary; call the day you would like to come in to check hours and availability. We offer 14K Gold and Gold Plated Stainless Steel earrings. All of our earrings are hypoallergenic. Our staff will give instructions for proper after-care and answer any questions that you may have.

Ear Care Instructions

  • 1 Cleanse the earlobes or cartilage front and back once or twice a day with STUDEX@ Ear Care Solution or MediSeptTM Ear Care Gel. DO NOT REMOVE STUDS!
  • 2 At least twice a day, apply MediSept Gel or Studex Solution directly to the pierced hole and slide the studs back and forth in the ear to work the solution into the hole. Turn the studs (like winding the watch) several times a day.
  • 3 When shampooing, be sure that soap is completely rinsed from the ears. Cover ears when using spray cologne, hair spray, or hair dye. Keep hair away from ears whenever possible during the healing period.
  • 4 Leave training studs in for four to six weeks. For the first six months, do no longer than 24 hours without wearing earrings; otherwise, the hole could begin to close. This will ensure that the newly pierced hole will be formed properly. If after the four-week healing time the ear feels sore when changing earrings, go back to training studs and continue these instructions for an additional one or two weeks.
  • 5 After the four-to-six-week training period, other post-earrings may be worn. These should be made of Gold, Surgical Stainless Steel, or Sterling Silver. No heavy earrings should be worn for at least four months after the training period.
  • 6 Pain, redness, or swelling is not a normal result of ear piercing. This condition could indicate an allergic reaction to gold or that your body cannot tolerate a foreign object in the skin or infection. Should this condition occur, remove earrings immediately and see your physician at once.
