If you would like to minimize the discomfort associated with the procedure, you can purchase over-the-counter 4% lidocaine ointment. Apply it to the earlobes and cover with a bandaid or plastic wrap 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment. Do not used lidocaine on broken or irritated skin. If you would like to have both ears pierced at the same time, be sure to let the scheduler know to be sure there will be 2 providers available that day to do the piercing.
Instructions for taking care of pierced ears:
