Does an industrial piercing ever close up?
Industrial Piercings Yes, for the most part. Most industrials are done at a 14 gauge, and because it is done in the cartilage where there is more blood circulation than, say, a lobe piercing, it has a much greater chance of completely closing back up. The hole might leave a small scar, and it also depends on how long you've had the industrial in. I've had an industrial for 3 years and the other week I took it out for a only a few days and it was almost impossible to get it back in. I thought I was going to have to repierce it. It also depends on your body, though, everyone is different.

The longer the piercing is kept the longer it will take for it to close once it is removed.
Yes, and it is simple. Take out the jewelry, and then just keep caring for it as if it had jewelry in it. Keep cleaning it; it can still get infected even without jewelry. … It should take it about 3-4 months to heal without jewelry in it, so be patient. also, if you want it to close completely and quickly, put slightly bigger jewellery in for a day (i.e. 1.6mm in 1.2mm piercing), which causes teeny stretches and cuts on the inside, as these heal they close the lip piercing quicker. you will need to care for it as though it were a reasonably new piercing as it is now effectively a new wound, but it will close completely within about 1 1/2-2weeks, like when you first had it done. this may hurt slightly more than just leaving it but its a helluva lot more practical than just waiting it out--->you don't dribble when you brush your teeth anymore or when you smile in the middle of drinking :)
The last answer was okay but heres the real deal , i had my lip pierced incorrectly about 2 months ago , i decided i would let it close so my parents would find out ..BAD IDEA… i told them in the first place it was a pimple but a pimple only stays around for 3 days .. not two months so i decided better safe then sorry and i closed up my hole ...now my hole is closed but there is still a mark where it used to be and its a purple mark from the bruising so it really depends if you get it dont right honestly i got it done with a gun ( ear piercer which is illegal just about every where ) with a guy that never ever ever did it before so make sure you check your guy/girl is licensed and tells you how to help it close up fast and healthy. Be smart and see a professional body piercer in an actual body piercing studio not some clown with a piercing gun. this answer has a good point but how long did it take to close?
It can take up to 12 weeks for an Industrial piercing to close up. Possibly even longer, as long as you clean the area with salen solution it will heal up just fine, DO …NOT turn, the piercing it will do that by daily wear. And DO NOT take the piercing out, the skin will grow back together very quickly and cause the punctures to close, meaning you just paid for a piercing, that is no good anymore.
Generally if done correctly the frenum should not be an issue with the jewellery removed because it shouldn't enter into the ureathra duct. If the jewellery is left out long e…nough the tissue will shrink back over time (depending on how big you may have stretched the piercing if at all). The only other way to close the piercing is to have your docter lance both side of the piercing and bandage it up and let it heal.
Yes They Do, That Is Why You Should Never Leave Our Your Lip Ring/Stud Out For Too Long. You'll Have To Wait At Least A Year Or Two Before You Can Leave It Out For More Than A… Day...
Well it depends on a few things the type of piercing and more overly how long you have had the piercings. The older the piercings are the less likely the piercings will close …completely, genital piercings will season and become toughened and therefore not as prone to closing like other piercings due to the nature of the tissue.. If the piercings are new (under a year old) then the chances of the piercings closing is much greater. Ultimately if the jewellery is removed from a seasoned piercing is will shrink to a point where at first glance the piercing will not be noticeable (depending on the piercing).. Male exotics Prince Alberts, reverse Prince Alberts, Ampallange and Apadrivias will remain visible even with the jewellery removed but they will shrink, but not close if over a year old. Female hood piercings horizontal or vertical, Labia majora and minora will all shrink but not close if over a year old, this also applied to actual Clitoral piercing as well.
It depends on how long you have had the piercing and at what gauge, it may close over weeks or months then it may never close. It's nothing to worry about.
I heard you could put like a lemon. or another fruit (opened up) on the opened piercing
Some piercers do and some don't. Some will require that you get a piercing in a larger gauge to get rid of the scar tissue. Just remember that piercing scar tissue is more pai…nful than the initial piercing.
Definitely, in fact I'm not sure they ever heal. My friend's closed up overnight when her belly button ring fell out while she was sleeping. You're supposed to be able to take… it out if you get pregnant, and then it will close up before your belly grows too much and stretches the hole out. I had a piercing for 3 years. My size went up and down a few inches ( streching belly pirecing) I am aiming to make it look like it was never pierced. I am trying the derma roller which I brought on ebay for 3.99. It pricks your skin to cause wounds just to heal it again. In other words I am usind scar manipulation. It the only thing I can think of.
Depends on the age of the piercing, the gauge, and just how your body heals. Most do close but they leave scars.
They can close up if small and not used frequently. Larger defects will not close, but if required can be closed by minor plastic surgery.
Depends on how long you have them, and what kind they are. Piercings in the cartilage, lip and ear lobe rarely close completely, they scar while new skin might grow over the …hole, the cartilage remains shattered. Tongue piercings heal quickly, because the tongue is a muscle. Dermal piercings also heal better than cartilage, but can leave a scar.
