Do you like beautiful jewellery?
So do we. We also think that you should be able to wear beautiful jewellery without having to worry about contact allergies. And that your children or grandchildren should have the same opportunity. That is why we chose Blomdahl Medical Piercing System at Red Ivie Hairdressing.
We consider the notion of “suffering for beauty” to be rather insane: why should you have to risk your health for the sake of beauty?
Nickel allergy is an incurable contact allergy which can develop at any time in life, for example if you use jewellery that contains nickel. Contrary to popular belief, gold and silver jewellery and jewellery called “nickel-free” are never entirely free from nickel.
Making beautiful jewellery is a complicated art. Making beautiful jewellery that takes into account the wearers’ health is even harder. It requires ambitious product development, precision and independent quality controls. Not everyone succeeds, but ends up compromising with skin friendliness. This is something we will never do. Our jewellery will always be both beautiful and safe to wear.
Ear piercing is a medical procedure, so there is every reason to make sure that it is done properly. Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing has been developed from a medical standpoint, using modern technology and safe materials. Ear piercing has taken a big step forward - Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing has made ear piercing safer.
Medical Plastic – ear piercing earrings with 0% nickel! Since all metals contain nickel, at least as impurities, we have developed Medical Plastic – ear piercing earrings with 0 (zero) % nickel. Therefore, with Medical Plastic there is no risk what so ever of developing nickel allergy. Medical Plastic is especially recommended for children and adults who want to be absolutely sure that they will not develop nickel allergy during the healing period.
Titanium – the safest metal for ear piercing! Titanium is accepted extremely well by the body and is therefore used more and more in implants and other medical applications, often replacing stainless (surgical) steel. We use homogeneous (non-plated) titanium of a medical grade quality because of its superior non-allergenic characteristics.
Golden Titanium ear piercing earrings are plated with 24 karat gold, but only on the surfaces that are not in contact with the skin. All parts coming into direct contact with the skin are pure skin friendly titanium. We recommend titanium for all types of skin
Nose piercing, as with all types of piercing, is a medical procedure, so there is every reason to make sure that it is done properly.Blomdahl Medical Nose Piercing has therefore been developed from a medical standpoint,
using the same modern technology and safe
materials as used in Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing.
Our beautiful nose piercing studs are made of homogeneous (non-plated) titanium of a medical grade quality because of its superior non-allergenic characteristics.The nose piercing studs come in Natural Titanium and Golden Titanium, with or without Swarovski crystals. The Golden Titanium nose piercing studs have 24 gold on the jewellery part of the stud, but it is only the skin friendly titanium that comes into contact with your skin. No butterfly is used for nose piercing. Instead the nose piercing stud has an olive shaped tip, in order to prevent the nose stud from sliding out.
Navel Piercing - coming soon!
Navel piercing is a medical procedure and thereby associated with certain risks. Therefore there is a greater need for navel piercing to be carried out in an aseptic and safe manner, and for you as the customer to receive the correct information. It is from this standpoint that we have developed Blomdahl Medical Navel Piercing - using medical aspects with modern technology and safe materials. At last there is a product which makes navel piercing easier, hygienic and safer.
Everything that is needed to do a navel piercing comes in a disposable sterile navel piercing kit. It has been developed from a knowledge about asepsis, that is to say techniques to avoid the transmitting of infections. Every component and step in Blomdahl Medical Navel Piercing has been developed to minimise the risk of infection. The sharp needle is well encapsulated in the cassette and disappears into the needle receiver after the piercing - you never have to see the needle!
