How To Make Light Of Scarring With Monroe Piercing

Jewellery in the upper lip, looking like a beauty mark, is known as a Monroe piercing. And, sometimes known as a “Madonna” or “Manson” piercing, Monroe piercing take 8 to 10 weeks to heal. When you remove your Monroe jewellery, you will have scars, just like some other facial or body piercing.

How To Make Light Of Scarring With Monroe Piercing

A few factors during the Monroe piercing system and the healing time determine the size of the scars all over face after you abandon the jewellery in your piercing.

Step 1

Visit a professional piercer to get your Monroe piercing. Proficient piercers perform Monroe piercing at a small gauge, usually 16, which leaves a scar that looks like the extent of the leader of a stick. A non professional or amateur may pierce your upper lip with a needle or jewellery that is too huge for your life structures, causing a large scar.

Step 2

Do ask your piercer to show you the jewellery for your Monroe piercing. Proper jewellery for a Monroe is long to allow for swelling during the healing period, but the width of the jewellery is thin. Ask if the piercer uses the same size needle from the jewellery. If the needle is bigger than the jewellery, your skin can experience issues during that could bring about more scarring than should be expected.

Step 3

Clean the inner and outer part of your Monroe piercing every day with the products suggested by your piercer. Use products, for example, mild cleansers, liquor free mouthwashes, saline and ocean salts for cleaning your Monroe piercing and jewellery. Use numbing spray or cream like Dr. Numb, to ease the pain. Avoid harsh products and products containing petroleum jelly on your Monroe piercing to keep extra scarring caused by burning or irritating your skin.

Step 4

Care to follow the aftercare tip sheet gave by your piercer. Biting on your jewellery or playing with the stud can bring about the skin of the piercing gap to extend and broaden, help you to replace the thin jewellery with jewellery of a larger gauge. Extending the opening will bring about a bigger scar if you expel the jewellery completely.

Step 5

Take out your Monroe jewellery when taking part in physical games. Tearing or tearing your Monroe piercing can cause extra scarring. Change your gems with an acrylic retainer during the game or match if you are sports person.


Evacuating your Monroe jewellery may cause the piercing hole to close permanently.


Fight against the temptation to touch your Monroe piercing because the infection is conceivable from unclean hands.

Keep away from deep kissing and oral sex during the healing period of your Monroe piercing to avert infection or tearing of the piercing.
