Merle Norman & InSPArations Day Spa is your source for dependable piercing and first-time earrings in Grande Prairie. The following should answer your questions about the process. If you have additional questions, or would like to book a session, please give us a call or contact us online.
We clean, numb, and pierce the ears at the same time so appointments are required to ensure we have two estheticians available.
We pierce with a medical device designed and controlled by hand pressure. The piercing area is cleaned, numbed, and pierced with a different medical device every time.
For guests under the age of 18 years, a parent or guardian must sign a consent form.
Yes. We have no restrictions on the age of the infant. The ear lobes must be be the size of 1/2 a dime so the butterfly backing is not visible from the front. An adult must be willing to assist in holding the infant; however, some mothers find it easier not to be present during the piercing.
NOTE: On rare occasions there may be a "pinch mark" left on the cheek near the ear lobe from the piercing gun.
We only use pre-sterilized, pre-packaged earrings. We NEVER use needles. The piercing instruments are cleaned before and after each guest so it is safe and hygienic. We clean, numb and pierce both ears at the same time. We use disposable inserts in our piercing systems.
No. We only pierce with studs purchased at our studio. You will be able to enjoy your earrings in 4 to 6 weeks time.
We always premark the dots and have you confirm placement prior to piercing. On occasion the placement may not be 'exactly right' - depending on how close it is we may need to remove the stud, have it grow in and re-pierce at a later date OR if there is enough space between the piercing site and the ideal spot - they can be redone the same day.
