This by far is the most asked question at KYRA, and a bit tricky to answer. The truth is, when it comes to piercings the anticipation and the “Fear of the Unknown" are always going to be a challenge, causing anxiety. The piercing procedure itself, is often surprisingly easy... a quick pinch lasting less than a second, accompanied by a sensation of warmth in the area that has been pierced, thats it and your are done.
We 'DO NOT’ use piercing ‘Guns’. We cringe when people call our piercing instrument a gun.The Piercing System used at KYRA is SAFE, STERILE and HYPO-ALLERGENIC. It is hand pressured instrument that is engineered to Push the ear stud out in one smooth and quick movement. Unlike a Gun, there is no trigger on the instrument, neither is it spring loaded. It works on a push mechanism giving total control to the piercer, until the ear stud is pushed out of the sterile capsule and placed in the individuals ear. A near painless piercing experience is how most of our clients describe it , and some as a mild “Pinch". And by the way a numbing cream/spray is applied to the piercing area prior to every piercing to ease the sensation.
The significance of minors getting their earlobes pierced is celebrated in many cultures globally, for some its ceremonial, for some a tradition. We at KYRA are honored to be a part of this milestone in your child's life. The earliest that doctors recommend piercing the ear lobes is after the second round of tetanus D.P.T vaccinations when your baby is between three to six months old. At this age, your child’s immunity level is much higher and they are better equipped to handle any unlikely infections or skin irritation. The first D.P.T. shot is usually administered by a pediatrician at 8 weeks of age.
For more info you may call us , or your local pediatrician.

No ! not unless they are purchased/gifted previously at KYRA. Only those earrings sold at any of the KYRA branches branches, will fit onto the sterile piercing system we use. The specially designed earrings are fully encapsulated, hypo-allergenic and packaged in individual sterile cartridges to avoid contamination.
In the unlikely event of the earrings coming off, while you look to find the safety ear back, firstly clean the stem or post of the Ear stud and put the stud back into the childs earlobe a.s.a.p. In case you are unable to find the safety ear backs, then replace them with regular ear backs of your own until you visit the nearest branch of KYRA to get an extra pair of the Patented Safety Ear backs. Please do not remove the earrings entirely from the earlobe during the 3month healing period or for long durations in the first year of your childs ear lobe piercing.
Kindly visit us, if you are unable to put them back yourself, we will be more than glad to help you.
Kindly view the detailed aftercare and healing section page
With over a decade of experience piercing minors, staff at KYRA have encountered such situations in the past and are well trained, knowledgeable, and great at creating an environment of trust and confidence amongst children. For many children “Going to a Doctor"/Clinic, by itself can be a bit challenging. So, If at any time during the process, your child or you feel like this may not be the right time, then that will be taken seriously. We believe that it's very important that “NO" be taken as an answer from your child. With the parents consent, the Piercer will be acting accordingly. With no obligation to you . We certainly don't mind investing that time with your child if it means you and your child have the safest, most comfortable experience possible at KYRA.
By far the most asked question at KYRA, and a bit tricky to answer. When it comes to piercings the “Anticipation" and the “Fear of the Unknown" are always going to be more nerve wrecking than the actual act. The piercing procedure itself, is often surprisingly easy... a quick pinch lasting less than a second or two, accompanied by a sensation of warmth in the area that has been pierced, thats it and your are done. The Aftercare , is what we emphasize on.
Yes ! we do. At the Clinic, You may choose to have a Piercing done with a Disposable, Sterile, Single use Needle Or with the Hand Pressured Instrument using sterile encapsulated jewelry.
KYRA is fast embracing the fully Disposable method of performing Piercings This includes disposable tools, marking pens, Clamps etc. Presently, piercings are performed in utmost hygiene, using any one of the two methods that you can choose from ie: Hand Pressured Instrument with Sterile, Disposable Capsules or with a Sterile single use Disposable Needle. All tools are autoclave sterilized to avoid any cross contamination.
The Hand pressured instrument uses a fully encapsulated piercing system with patented rounded ear backs which you can be assured of the most trusted equipment, fully disposable single-use cartridges
The Hand Pressured Instrument is quick, gentle and sterile. For Ear lobe piercings it is nearly as good as the needle, although for the other parts of the ear/body we recommend the sterile single use needle as the tri-bevelled edge of our needles are super sharp and pierce in a quick smooth motion. We do not offer needle piercings for minors. When you choose to get your piercing done using a needle, there is a wider range of sterile body jewelry options to choose from, like flat back labret, Implant grade Titanium etc. all from our group company KYRA.ae.
The Hand pressured instrument is quicker, hence you tend to feel the sensation for a lesser duration. However, one cannot say that the needle hurts much more, than the instrument. A well experienced piercer will be able to execute the procedure almost as fast.
18+, with a Valid Photo ID . We reserve the right to refuse individuals younger than 18 years.
As mentioned earlier, we offer piercings in two different methods, Hand Pressured and/Or Needle Piercing. Prices may vary, depending on what you choose, but to give you and idea Prices start at as low as 165 AED inclusive of a single piercing and 265 Aed for a pair using the Hand Pressured System and Aed 170 + (Cost of Jewellery) incase of Needle Piercing.
For Senior Citizens who maintain a reasonably healthy life style with no major medical conditions, nothing changes in particular when wanting to get a piercing done, than what has already been mentioned here. Incase you are severely Diabetic and/or on Anticoagulants such as heparin or warfarin (also called Coumadin) it is best to take your Doctors opinion prior to booking an appointment with us .
Initial Piercing jewelry used at KYRA have longer Stem/Post to allow for post-piercing swelling. Although we've had clients and walk-ins, who got piercings done at overpriced studio’s in London, NewYork or wherever … using shorter post/stem, a big majority of them have returned to nurse an infection. This was primarily caused due to the use of such inappropriate jewelry and absolute misinformation although we do not rule out personal hygiene and correct aftercare. For Initial piercings, It is extremely important to leave some room for swelling. Nearly all, Initial Piercing jewelry used at KYRA have longer Stem/Post to allow for such post-piercing swelling. We always suggest you to come back for a free follow-up and downsizing once your piercing heals as most of our posts and front tops are interchangeable into your desired length. Please view the Healing page for the healing timelines.
Yes ! we do, however we do not pierce any intimate body parts.
No. We do not.
Unlike a standard piercing that has an entrance and exit point ( eg: earlobe piercings), Dermal Piercings are anchored beneath the surface of the skin. They’re also referred to as surface anchors and single-point piercings, because there is no exit point. The hole for a dermal piercing is created using a large-gauge needle or a dermal punch.
Yes ! we do . KYRACARE only uses single use, disposable dermal punches, Once our piercer creates the hole for your dermal piercing, s/he will screw a dermal top of your choice onto a dermal anchor, and then use a dermal anchor forceps tool to insert the assembled dermal jewelry. This will look almost as if you just affixed a press-on jewel to your skin. As your piercing heals, your body will lock the anchor in place.
Once it’s fully healed, you will be able to change the decorative dermal top with some training and guidance. Always wash your hands before touching you’re piercing. Yes you should be able to easily change your dermal tops yourself, unless it is difficult for you to reach out to the pierced area. Its important not to swivel the anchor while changing the top. You don’t want to tear the tissue that’s holding it in place, or it will just spin, the top won’t come off, and you might risk pulling the anchor out completely.

4 months to a Year, Although it is subjective to the number and location of your piercings. Avoid Piercing both Left and Right Ear at the same time As you will experience discomfort while sleeping on either side of your pierced ear.
