What is a septum piercing and its price?

The septum is the cartilage that we have between the nostrils, which is why the piercing receives this name, because it is done in the area known as the septum. This area is a small piece of skin that separates the nostrils and is just below the nasal septum. The nasal piercing is done in this small piece of skin in order to avoid piercing the cartilage and that the pain is therefore less. 

The prices of piercings vary a lot depending on the area you choose and also the professional studio in which you want to have it done, even so, the approximate price would be between € 30 and € 40.

It is important to comment that the nose is a part of the body through which many nerve endings pass. It is for this reason that piercings made in this part of the body can be more annoying than painful.

Septums are one of the easiest piercings to care for although you must be constant. It is recommended to clean it at least twice a day with antibacterial soap in order to guarantee a fast, correct healing and thus avoid infections and the accumulation of dead cells. 

It is one of the piercings that heals faster since it only takes approximately one or two months to heal completely. It is for this reason, that it is recommended to carry out the care and include it in your daily routine. 

Despite this, it is important to keep in mind that it is a piercing and therefore, it is recommended not to experiment during the first months with the diameter or with the accessories that we include as earrings, since our body could produce a contrary reaction.
