The Medical Ear, Nose & Navel Piercing System

...that makes professional ear, nose & navel piercing Safer & Easier

During the last 20 years the medical implications of  piercing have changed dramatically.

  • Today ear, nose & navel piercing carries with it the risk of life threatening blood viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis B, C and D.
  • The number of people suffering from nickel allergy has risen rapidly.
  • Consumers and authorities place ever increasing requirements on hygiene and safety.

Yet the equipment used for ear, nose & navel piercing today is very much the same as the equipment used 20 years ago or more.

Having become aware of these facts Blomdahl could not resist the challenge of designing and manufacturing the world's safest ear, nose & navel  piercing system!

 

 The part which, on an old fashioned ear piercing gun, grips ear lobe after ear lobe, on ear after ear, nose after nose and customer after customer..... has been replaced with a sterilised disposable ENCAPSULATED CASSETTE.

This ENCAPSULATED CASSETTE contains one ear stud and one butterfly for one ear piercing operation (not two as with other systems). The customer can be certain that this sterile disposable cassette is used solely on him/her and no-one else.

Medical Plastic - 0% nickel
Medical Plastic is the only material for ear piercing with 0% nickel. With pure, medical plastic you can be assured that you will not be exposed to any nickel. Recommended for children and adults who want to be absolutely certain that they will not develop nickel allergy during the healing period.

What are ingrowns?
Why do they occur?

Irritating and unsightly ingrown hairs can occur on any part of the body following hair removal. They begin when dead skin cells accumulate where hair removal has occurred and form a papule while the skin heals. Hair growing in the area then gets trapped under the papule and is prevented from exiting the skin properly creating an ingrown hair. If left untreated, ingrown hairs can result in pain, itching, tenderness and in some cases, infection and permanent scarring.
