As with all piercings, although topical is used, there are those who say that it is very painful and others who feel absolutely nothing.

As Cindy Parra explains, drilling with twenty -four years of experience, not all are suitable for using this type of accessory.“It is preferable that people with allergies (rhinitis, sinusitis, etc..) Because of the constant mucus that there is and being frictioning the nose can hurt the piercing area.Likewise, those who practice contact sports and are prone to any blow in that place should avoid it.And even swimmers, since after drilling you cannot have contact with the pool or sea water for at least three weeks ”.

According to Naranjo, “a large jewel can cause a fall in the tip of the nose with time.However, at the aesthetic level it is possible to make corrections with hyaluronic acid or tension threads, whose effects last six months.But if you want long -term results, surgery will be the definitive option ".

Therefore, the ideal is to opt for delicate designs and take care of the hygiene of the area.Although the latter is tedious, avoiding infections is better than having to completely remove piercing.
