Our office performs ear piercing in a safe and sterile environment. Ear piercing should always be performed in a clean fashion because of the risk of more serious complications from infection or improper placement of instruments.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, ear piercing in children should be postponed until the child can properly fight off potential infection and take care of the area themselves; usually 7 or 8 years old. If you still decide to pierce your infant’s ears you should wait until the baby is at least 3 months old, when the immune system is at least partially developed and could fight off minor infections.
In adults, re-piercing of the ears can be performed after surgical earlobe repair. There are steps you can take to prevent recurrence of the earlobe injury, so ask your surgeon for more information if you are planning to replace your ear piercing after surgery.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
