Septum perforation: nasal septum puncture - reviews, photos, care

Septum piercing is an ancient custom of tribal peoples, which after centuries has become a modern fashion. This unusual decoration attracts more and more young people (and not so much). In this article we will tell you all the pros and cons of septum puncture and the complexities of this procedure.

What is it?

Word "Septum" (lat. Septum) translates to "partition." A septum perforation is a perforation of the nasal septum within and between the nostrils. If you pinch it with two fingers, you will find two cartilage there. One runs the entire nose from top to bottom, the second - from the upper lip to the tip of the nose. In the place between these two cartilages (that is, here is the thinnest part of the septum), only one puncture is performed. Closer to the tip of the nose.

In the time of ancient ancestors, these jewels played an important role in the culture of the tribe. When piercing the septum, the tribal inhabitants inserted various objects into their noses. Some peoples did this to intimidate their enemies by inserting bone animals. Others - to indicate rank and importance in the tribe.

Interestingly, some of these tribes exist in our time. To this day, they have septum piercings as part of their culture.

Modern people wear piercings as a beautiful earring. Boys and girls all over the world make a piercing on the partition to stand out and be original. Most of the time these are creative people who don't want to live like the gray majority.

How is a septum puncture done?

This type of piercing does not represent anything special in terms of the procedure itself. Basically, this is almost the same as an ear piercing. Since it is not very difficult, many people save money and do their own septum piercing at home.

Regardless of whether you want to drill the septum yourself or ask the master, be sure to follow the rules:

  • Hands must be well washed;
  • Tools, earrings and everything that touches the punctured place, must be completely disinfected;
  • Never drink alcohol or other substances.

The last point concerns both the piercer and the "patient" himself. Alcohol dilates the blood vessels, so the blood will last a long time. It is also desirable that the person whose septum is perforated be in good health. You should not have a runny nose, fever, and any medications that dilate blood vessels.

First, we'll warn you: getting a septum perforation could injure yourself or worse, blood poisoning. So think several times if this risk is worth the money saved.

If you are still determined and will not be intimidated by this, below are the instructions for the puncture. septum.

We will need:

  1. disinfectants;
  2. septum clip;
  3. piercing needle;
  4. a pendant the same diameter as the needle.

First, we disinfect the instruments and the nasal cavity thoroughly. We install the clamp on the septum ourselves or ask a friend. Make sure to make sure the piercing is flat and that no cartilage is touching. We make a prick with a needle. We take out the needle and put the ring on. We treat the wound with chlorhexidine or miramistin.

It is very important to choose a professional craftsman whom you fully trust. Before the session, ask him what the piercing procedure will be like so you won't be surprised. The teacher will also inform you about the size of the septum that you can use.

Some masters use ointments with an anesthetic effect. If you endure terribly pain, it is better to order the use of such an ointment.

Another method that teachers often use is simply talking to you, distracting themselves from the septum puncture. … They chat, ask questions and at the most unexpected moment, when you are completely distracted, they forcefully pierce the septum. It is worth saying that both methods are good. You will feel pain in any case, but it will be much easier to move the piercing morally.

The price will depend on the level and reputation of the teacher and the room. On average, a septum piercing costs 1500-2000 rubles.

How to care?

There is nothing complicated in the septum healing process. It is necessary to treat the wound for two months; this is how long the septum piercing lasts. Chlorhexidine is suitable for processing. Soak a cotton swab in it and wash the wound on the nose.

If an unpleasant smell remains after washing the piercing, then you should clean the earring.

Never peel off the dry scab around the puncture. This will only extend the healing time. And try to move the earring as little as possible.

Does it hurt to pierce a septum?

Let's not lie: piercings always hurt. Think for yourself: they pierce your skin with a needle and they are quite thick. Of course, everyone has their own pain threshold. And there are many factors that influence your feelings. For example, if you have long dreamed of having a septum pierced, you will endure much more pain than someone who really does not want to get pierced.

By the way, the pain can be reduced. As mentioned above, there are special ointments that act on the principle of anesthesia. Also, the pain will depend on whether the master enters the nerve ending or not, and this is a matter of chance.

Attention: If a nerve is touched during a septum puncture, and the severe pain does not go away, remove the piercing and see a doctor.

Risks and consequences of the procedure

A competent specialist will always tell you what the septum piercing is fraught with and what consequences you can expect. He will not dissuade you, these are his winnings, but he must warn you.

Whenever you get a piercing or tattoo, there is the possibility of blood poisoning. That is why they disinfect everything around them - so as not to introduce infections: hepatitis, HIV, etc.

Remember that even when using disposable needles and complete sterility, there is still a chance of getting infected. Although minimal.

Also, when a septum is pierced, deformation of the skin around the wound is possible. This is possible with a care inadequate and prolonged healing. In this case, scars may appear in this place, with the presence of itching and redness in the nose. This phenomenon is very painful and requires immediate medical attention.

It is worth mentioning the possibility of an allergic reaction to the decoration material. Check where the piercer bought the earring and what kind of material it is. An inexperienced home "craftsman" can purchase a ring that will rust in a week. Believe me, the consequences will not be pleasant.

Buy jewelry at a specialty store. Quality materials: titanium and surgical steel. It is recommended to wear the first titanium earring. But in the cured septum others can already be put.

Jewelery types

Generally speaking, there are 2 types of septum earrings: circular and banana. And they are already divided into a few more subtypes. The circulars include a clicker and the bananas include a bar and a microbanana. Let's see examples of which of them is which.

A circular is a decoration in the shape of a semicircle, at the ends of which the nozzle balls are twisted.

Clicker - A ring that opens in one place and, when closed, makes a characteristic clicking sound.

Banana is a septum product made in the form of the fruit of the same name.

Microbanana - the same banana, only small and with less curvature.

Shaft - a slope in the form of a straight bar without bends.

The last 3 types are convenient because they can be hidden in the nose at any time. The bar is almost invisible, and the banana and micro-banana easily rotate in the other direction. Therefore, these forms are most often used as the first earring that cannot be removed for the first 2 months.

By the way, decorative wraps are used not only for circulars. , but also in all kinds of partition wall decorations, except the clicker. They can be of any color: gold, black, white, Red and others.

We should also mention the septum blende. They are installed on the nose without piercing and help to externally assess whether such an attribute suits you or not. The only thing is that it is better not to wear such a fake in public.
