Halo now carries SnapPlugs in our studio. They are made in two different series; Series 1 is 4 Gauge to 0 Gauge and Series 2 is 0 Gauge to 1/2".
The idea is really simple. When it comes to stretching your lobes, it is all about the circumference. By using small and even changes in circumference between one SnapPlug to the next, a safer and more comfortable stretch is realized while reducing the risk of damage and blowouts when stretching your ears on your own.
Let us look at an example: Stretching a piercing with jewelry that changes by only 1mm in diameter, would result in about a 3mm change in circumference. In comparison, to stretch a piercing by 1mm in diameter using SnapPlugs, it would require about three stretches. This is because SnapPlugs are designed with gradual, systematic changes in circumference of about 1mm, which equate to only about 0.32mm change in diameter per jump. This makes for a much healthier and usually faster transition even though it involves more steps.
All other methods of stretching involve products that depend on the standard jewelry sizes that have varying changes in diameter, which result in erratic changes in circumference. Many traditional stretches require skin to stretch as much as 5mm in one stretch, which can cause a great deal of discomfort and damage to the piercing. Even plugs that have small 1mm changes in diameter, result in a stretch that is 3 times as large as a stretch with SnapPlugs. This is why we suggest you wait 2 to 3 months in between stretching when you have us stretch at Halo using traditional sizes.
Each SnapPlug should be worn a minimum of 10 days and up to 30 days, before moving to the next stretch/size.
What makes SnapPlugs a revolutionary ear stretching system is the implementation of a ‘transition ramp’. The transition ramp is a slightly tapered end located at the back of the plug at the widest part, so it can sit flush with the next plug in the series. Since SnapPlugs only have a 1mm circumfrence increase, the transition ramp helps ensure a smooth, painless stretch each and every time.
Some of you may just know one of these plugs as 'home'.
