However, a dermal piercing is little different from any other piercing and is relatively new on the block. So, here is a low down on what it is and how it looks.
What is a Dermal Piercing?
A dermal piercing is basically embedded beneath the skin unlike any other. When you pierce earlobes or navel the piercing accessory goes through one side and gets out the other whereas dermal piercings are single-point piercings where the jewelry does not come out from the other side. The dermal jewelry sits beneath the skin and the dermal tops screw them so that the visible part sits snugly on the skin surface.
The dermal piercing is done with the help of a piercing needle or a dermal punch. The dermal punch creates a hole on the top layer of the skin which is known as the epidermis. The dermal jewelry goes through this top layer and gets inserted into the layer below the top one which is known as dermis, hence the name dermal piercing.
Potential Issues with Dermal Piercings
Dermal piercings are prone to migrate and reject. Rejection or migration can be caused by various reasons. Sometimes, the dermal anchor is not placed deep enough while at other times it gets caught in clothes and causes irritation and migration. Still at other times migration or rejection may be caused due to putting undue pressure on dermal piercing. Sometimes, the natural response towards dermal piercing is that of throwing it out like it does to a splinter and hence the rejection.
Avoiding this possible consequence requires you to wear a dermal anchor with holes in it which provides space for the tissue to grow and fill in the hole to hold on to the skin properly. Choose a place where the dermal anchor does not get rubbed constantly and it is secured over time with healing tissues.
