What is the best age at which to get my baby's ears pierced?

There is no medical evidence to support any age restrictions. We have pierced ears as early as 4-6 weeks old.  Whatever the age you decide on, it’s essential that you choose where you will have the procedure done carefully.

We will pierce your baby’s ears whenever your are comfortable having the procedure done. We have clients from many places around the world and many ethnic groups who traditionally have their babies ears pierced very early. We have many people who have been told by their Doctors to wait until the baby turns 6 months old.

Some doctors will advise their clients to have the baby’s ears pierced after the first shot. So it really varies. With over 45 years of experience performing ear piercings for all ages you should expect great results whatever age you decide to have your baby’s ears pierced by us. We pierce ears of all ages, infants are just our specialty.

What do you use to pierce the ears? 

We use the medical ear piercing gun which is the most widely used ear piercing instrument in the world.  We have used this instrument for over 45 years with absolutely no problems what so ever.  Millions of people around the world trust this instrument for safe and gentle piercing.  

 

We also use the pre-sterilized disposable instrument .  This is truely a no-touch system that protects the clients as well as the Nurses from contamination.  The most innovated and technologically advanced instrument. The “touch-free” ear piercing process highlights: safety, hygiene, and ease of use. The one piece cartridge gives smooth operation and ensures proper alignment of the stud with clasp.

The patented design provides a gentle action for a quick, painless piercing. The ear is automatically pierced with a simple spring action trigger in one easy step.

You can choose whichever system you prefer when the Nurse arrives.
