You will need to treat a newly stretched piercing like a fresh piercing (follow the same aftercare guidelines that you did when your piercing was new). Once the jewelry can be comfortably removed, tissue massage (with or without oil) will improve circulation, speed healing, and reduce scar tissue. This is especially important if you experience a “blow out” or tissue damage when stretching. Should this happen, consider dropping to a smaller size to reduce pressure and increase circulation until the tissue is healed.
