Dermal anchor

A dermal anchor, also called microdermal, belongs to the group of single-point piercings; So piercings without the typical puncture canal with entry and exit point, but that only look out at one end. The decisive advantage of this type of body jewelry compared to surface piercings is the short, usually completely uncomplicated healing.

Dermal anchors can be used to create “piercings” on parts of the body where this was previously not possible and where the advantages of surface barbells no longer work. Surface piercings can therefore also be "simulated" in places that until recently were considered to be 'unpierceable'. Whether unusual patterns and combinations or just a so-called "single point" - there are almost no limits to the imagination. The piercing and insertion, as well as the intervention, which is necessary to remove the jewelry, is not easy, but quite minimally invasive.

A "fresh" dermal anchor should be fixed with a plaster for about 2 weeks so that the jewelry can nestle properly in the tissue and / or prevent accidental snagging. The attachment should only be changed when the dermal anchor has healed and the Place should be protected from dirt and liquids as much as possible.

Cleanliness and the right care are of course the basis for optimal wound healing here too. Exercise, swimming, sauna and solarium should be avoided for at least 2 weeks. Furthermore, creams, perfumes, make-up and powder should be avoided in the jewelry area during the healing period.


Risks and side effects:

In addition to improper placement, the risks of a dermal anchor include rejection reactions by the body or the risk of an encapsulating infection.
Even a healed dermal anchor is not immune to the latter, as the skin pocket formed can be open to the outside and offer an ideal climate and protected space for germs. Careful hygiene when handling the Dermal Anchor is extremely important!

Another disadvantage of the dermal anchor is that you have to go to the piercer to remove it, because 'just take it out' is not possible here, as the jewelry grows together in the skin. A dermal anchor cannot simply be put away for an X-ray, but in principle it is also possible to X-ray with a dermal anchor. Dermal Anchors do not cause any technical problems in CT / MRT because they are made of titanium. The prerequisite here, however, is that the jewelry is not directly in the way in the scanned area.

Dermal anchors also have the disadvantage that they often do not last very long. The normal 'survival time' is between one and five years. However, it can also happen that Dermal Anchor 'grow out' after a few months.
