Dermal anchors are used for dermal piercing which is very much in vogue these days. Using dermal anchors implies that only the decorative gem or bed is visible on the outside while the other part of the implant is firmly inserted into the skin. There are a number of people who wish to make their body piercings long lasting and therefore opt for dermal anchors.
Various Types of Dermal Anchors
There is a wide variety of dermal anchors to choose from. The anchors with an oblong share are often known as surface anchors, microdermal anchors or transdermal anchors. The ones with a small round base are referred to as skin divers. In fact, people can exercise their creativity to the fullest when it comes to wearing such dermal anchors or micro dermal piercings. One can add a jewel to a toe or a finger, add complementary spots on a tattoo or place gemstone at the position of the Third Eye. The placement can be made at any position where the dermal anchor can be fitted well.
What Constitutes a Dermal Anchor?
Dermal anchors comprise a flat part along with gems or beads that are attached to it. The flat portion is called the anchor and it goes under the skin. The part that remains outside is the bead or the gem which can be changed from time to time to create a different look each time you wear it.
Whom to Visit for Implanting Dermal Anchors?
There is no need for an invasive procedure in order to position a dermal anchor. Only a needle or a dermal punch is required for that insertion. One should go to an experienced piercer only for such a piercing as they know how to carry out the task without posing any risk of infections or other skin problems.
How is it Done?
A piercing needle is used to make an insertion into the skin and make a sort of a pocket for the dermal anchor. It’s a quick procedure that is not much painful and the only bit of pain that one can feel is when the needle is inserted into the skin.
Why are Dermal Anchors Popular?
Microdermal implants are increasingly becoming popular to surface piercings as the chances of scarring at the time of removal of the anchor are minimal. These are not permanent and therefore can be removed with little help from a professional.
