What are dermal piercings?

Micro dermal piercings are semi-permanent piercings that are commonly referred to as micro dermal implants or dermal anchors.  It is relatively simple to have them done to your body, one of the reasons why they are quickly gaining in popularity.

There are two parts of a micro dermal piercing.  The anchor, as its name suggests, is placed beneath the skin and helps hold the top part in place.  It is made of metal and has tiny holes in it.  The holes are there to allow skin to grow through them and keep the anchor in place.

Since the anchor will inside your body, the type of metal that it’s made of is very important.  It’s usually best that the anchor be made from titanium instead of steel.  Steel anchors have a much higher chance of being rejected over a long-term basis.

The top part of micro dermal piercing is the only part that’s visible to everyone.  It usually consists of a bead or gem of some sort.  You can easily remove the bead from its anchor in order to change it to something else.

There are many different options at your disposal.  However, you can’t change the top part of dermal piercings soon after you get them.  It’s important that you wait until the wound has healed completely before you even think about changing it.

There are different ways that a professional can make dermal piercings.  Some studios use a needle while others use a dermal punch.  A dermal punch is a surgical apparatus and is usually the best way to make these piercings.  A needle only separates skin in order to place the anchor.  On the other hand, a dermal punch will remove skin tissue so that a pocket can be created to hold the anchor.

Whichever method is used to make dermal piercings, it’s important that you only have the procedure done by someone who is truly qualified to do it.  This is still a relatively new procedure, so you don’t want someone inexperienced doing it.

There are a few risks associated with dermal piercings just like with surface piercings.  It’s possible that the piercing can be rejected by the body’s natural defences.  The body usually has a problem whenever it detects a foreign object and will try to do something about it.

It’s also possible for micro dermal piercings to migrate.  This occurs whenever the anchor starts moving to the surface of your skin.  You will likely develop scar tissue if this happens.  If you notice that your piercing is showing signs of rejection or migration, then it’s important that you have it removed as soon as you can.

You can largely prevent problems with dermal piercings if you care for them properly.  After you get it, the area may bleed for a little while.

For some people, transparent bandages can help protect the area from harmful substances that can lead to an infection.  Another reason why you could use a bandage is because it’s transparent.  You won’t have to remove it in order to check on the condition of your piercing.

It’s important that you wash the area around the piercing on a daily basis or as instructed by the professional.  If you keep it clean, you likely won’t develop an infection.  You can simply rinse it off whenever you’re taking a shower.  Another option would be to rinse it with saline solution.  Whatever you do, just make sure that you dry the area thoroughly after getting it wet.

The time it takes for dermal piercings can vary from person to person.  The area heals in just a few months for some people.  In others, it can take up to a year for tissue to adhere to the anchor as it should.

You need to avoid disturbing micro dermal piercings as much as possible.  Just give them time to heal without fiddling with them.  After they have, then you can think about changing the bead or gem.

Micro dermal piercings are a relatively new form of body piercing.  They consist of an anchor embedded beneath your skin that’s designed to hold a bead or gem in place.  Only the bead or gem is visible to other people.  If you care for them properly, then you shouldn’t experience many problems.

Always ensure you get advice and support before, during and after any piercing.
