Studex Ear- Piercing


Here at The Retreat we offer ear lobe and cartilage piercings using Studex Plus- the traditional spring loaded instrument using a disposable cartridge system and having no direct contact with the skin.We have a fantastic selection of earrings to choose from- ranging from 24 carrat gold plated, surgical grade stainless steel and titanium. 

Each piercing appointment is carried out in a private beauty salon treatment room by one of our highly qualified therapists- so rest assured you are in safe hands. A parent or Guardian must be present if the customer is aged under 16- Children must be aged 10 or over.

£27.50 for both lobes or individual cartilage including after piercing lotion.


As part of the piercing process, your Technician will take you through the aftercare steps both before and then after the piercing. We know that with the anticipation and excitement of getting your new piercing, you may not be paying full attention, so your Studex piercer will provide you with a copy of the daily steps to follow and some key “Dos and Don’ts”.

The Studex After Piercing Lotion is a must for use straight after your new piercing and throughout the healing period. A pH balanced solution, it will act as a flushing agent as well as soothing and promoting healing.

Always handle your new piercing with clean hands and remember to carefully rotate at least twice a day, cleaning carefully at the front and back.



How long do I need to keep my piercing jewellery in for?

6 weeks continuously for the ear lobe, 12 weeks for the upper flat cartilage  are the recommended minimum healing time.
Remember once you have removed the jewellery, you will need to clean the site thoroughly and continue to wear hypoallergenic jewellery continuously to prevent the piercing from closing.

Can I take the jewellery out before the healing period?

Removing the jewellery too soon could affect the healthy healing of your piercing and you may struggle to reposition after removing. The recommended guidelines are based on over 4 decades of experience so trust us, we know what is best for your piercing.

Will my jewellery fall out?

On piercing, Studex earrings connect automatically with the butterfly to keep the earrings in place. Locked into a special "notch" the butterfly is designed to stay in place and not move up and down the post, therefore keeping cleaning easy and helping healing. It is really important that you do not move the safety butterfly along the post!
The traditional butterfly back is preferred by Studex due to its easiness to clean and ability to prevent dirt and bacteria from collecting and thus risking infection. After healing the butterflies can be removed. If they appear a little stiff, simply apply solution and twist to ease before releasing
