Pierce or repierce?

My ears were pierced about 20 years ago. I stopped wearing earrings about 4 years ago. My left ear is still fine but the hole in the right has partially closed up. Best way to proceed?

The right ear has closed at the back - there's a perfectly good hole at the front and the earring goes almost all the way through but is stopped by what appears to be a thin layer of skin. I would prefer that the original hole is reopened.
Is this something that a regular beautician/salon place can do or do I have to go to a specialist piercer to get this sorted? I don't want a fresh piercing because I can imagine the fun trying to find the correct hole when there's two to choose from. I'd prefer not to have to resort to a DIY solution.
