Microdermal piercings also known simply as microdermal, dermal piercings or single point piercings are a versatile piercing that can be placed almost anywhere on the body! Here is exactly how the procedure is done, all about the jewelry and important notes of aftercare. Keep reading to find out all you need to know.
When it comes to microdermal jewelry you have less versatility in terms of hoop versus stud that most other piercings have. The jewelry is shaped almost like a ‘j’ or half a ‘h’. On the outside of the body sits the head of the piercing that is screwed onto the anchor. This part is easily changed depending on the style or image you’d like to be shown. Underneath the layer of skin sits the anchor which keeps the piercing from easily falling out of the punched hole.
This anchor is not simply a metal plate that sits within the skin, but includes several holes along it that allow the microdermal layer of skin to grow around it naturally. This continues to help the jewelry from being accidentally removed.
This piercing should only be done by a professional piercer. A dermal piercing is not something you want to try and be cheap with. In the United States the average price is $45 up to $100 depending on how many are being done.Read More
