Medical Ear Piercing


For your baby or child, medical ear piercing with local anesthetic is safe and sterile – it’s just what you’re looking for. When a doctor performs your ear piercing procedure, you know the holes are positioned just right and the risk of infection is as low as possible.

Using medical-grade equipment, Dr. Harmon takes into account the patient’s ear structure and any nickel allergies before administering piercings that are optimized for swift healing.

Why is medical ear piercing the best option? Here’s a quick rundown:

    • Receive topical anesthesia, not available in a non-medical setting.
    • It’s expertly performed by a doctor.
    • It’s completed with a one-time use cartridge, eliminating the risk of cross-contamination.

Age Restriction to Consider

We recommend ear piercing occur after 4 months of age. Waiting until 4 months ensures babies have had their first set of vaccines. It also allows the ear to grow large enough for accurate earring placement.

All eligible patients must be up-to-date on all vaccines.
