The families in Rayleigh, Hockley, Canvey and Southend have been coming to our clinic for ear piercing for the past 20 years. Why? Because we only ever pierce with 9ct Gold earrings and we are a registered medical clinic.
We always stock a wide range of 9ct yellow gold and white gold studs at our clinic in Rayleigh. We are happy to pierce children under the age of 18 providing they are accompanied by a parent. We cannot accept letters from parents I’m afraid, as the parent will need to sign the consent form.
There is no evidence behind the claims that ear piercing can help in the treatment of migraines.
There has been a of interest in ear cartilage piercing as a treatment for migraine. As elan Medical Skin clinic is registered medical clinic and there is no evidence that ear piercing works for the treatment of migraines, we do not offer this procedure. The Migraine Trust confirms this in a recent blog post. However, there is a lot of evidence behind Botox treatment for migraine sufferers.
Registered ear piercing in Rayleigh
We are also able to repair torn earlobes from previous piercings.
Torn ear lobes can occur if the earrings worn are too heavy, or have been pulled to hard. They also occur more frequently when ears are pierced too low down the ear lobe.
At our clinic in Rayleigh High Street, we can surgical repair these torn ear lobed at one of our weekly minor surgery clinics. The procedure takes around 45 minutes. You will leave the clinic with some tiny sutures in the ear and you will need to return to the clinic in Rayleigh approximately two weeks later to have your sutures removed.
Torn ear lobe repair
Once the ear lobe has been repaired, you are advised to leave it a year before having your ear pierced over the site of the scar. Although you can have your ear pierced adjacent to the scar within weeks of surgery. Most people return to the clinic in Rayleigh around six weeks following surgery to have their ear re-pierced.
If you would like your ears-pierced professionally, in a proper clinic environment or you have an ear-lobe tear that you would like repaired, then just give our clinic in Rayleigh a call on 01268 770660 or Contact Us
