Dermal Anchors can be sometimes also called Microdermals, Dermals or Surface Anchors.
They are a great way to decorate a part of your body, although not all placements are suitable.
As a general rule, we need to avoid moving tissue, avoid areas where clothes are more likely to catch etc. Your lifestyle will also play a role, so it would be best to come in for a consultation and together we will pick a suitable placement.
We would be performing the Dermal with a small single use Biopsy Punch.
Although everyone experiences pain differently, Dermals are generally found to be surprisingly painless! Your new piercing deserves the best it can get, and we have all the necessary expertise, tools, jewellery and experience to ensure that.
Healing would take on average six to twelve months, but each person heals differently.
Please, carefully read and follow our Aftercare Instructions and take very good care of your piercing to avoid any complications. We are with you for the entire healing journey, with free checkups and advice along the way.
That being said, Dermal Anchors do have a high rejection rate, even after years. We have seen some that last for a decade or more, so with good minding and a bit of luck, yours could last years. In general though, they should be considered as semi-permanent so please be aware of this before committing to them.
