NoPull Piercing Discs Rock!
The NoPull Piercing Disc is a simple device (a silicone disc) that I've been suggesting for minimizing excess scar tissue. The results have been stellar; they are extremely effective!
Having a piercing problem? I can help!
It was invented to help diminish trauma and discomfort with oral piercings such as lip and tongue.
From this video review, we can see that it is also capable of having a tremendously positive impact on scar tissue!
For use on nipple or triangle piercings and certain other areas, you can cut off part of the disc so that it rests more comfortably against the body. For nostril piercings, a perfect smaller disc can be made using a dermal punch.
You can purchase them here. Or here, where a package of 10 is only $7.95. They fit from 18 to 12 gauge, and you can get them onto a 10 gauge if you work at it. Large-size discs are also available--up to 00 gauge! You can order them here.
As it says in The Piercing Bible section on scar reduction products:
"...ScarEase, ReJuveness, and other silicone sheets, and Biodermis, Kelo-cote, and other silicone gel systems. It isn’t understood exactly how silicone helps scars heal. Some researchers believe that static electricity from the silicone helps align collagen fibers in the scar, while others believe it might help to trap moisture, which can help scars to fade."
I personally used the disc on some excess scar tissue on the back of my own ear cartilage piercing and now it is perfect! The results are great and I think the NoPull Piercing Disc, is definitely worth a try!
I've also used them as little gaskets on the top of VCH piercings on women who don't have much room for jewelry and have a pubic mound that presses against the top gem or ball. This prevents discomfort, excess scarring, and even embedding!
The images below depict before, (some during), and very impressive after results with diminished scar tissue from using the NoPull Piercing Disc!
