There are two elements to a microdermal piercing; the anchor
and the top. Your piercer will help you to choose your microdermal anchor as
this will be a permanent fitting but once your piercing is fully healed you
will be able to change your microdermal top yourself. Besides choosing your
favourite colour or design, there are a few things you need to consider:
As we mentioned, there are two parts to your microdermal
piercing. The microdermal anchor cannot be changed and if you wish to retire
your piercing you will need to visit a piercer to have this removed
Once your piercing has healed you can change your
microdermal top at home. This piece of the jewellery simply unscrews.
If you find that your microdermal top is difficult to
unscrew then you can either visit one of our piercers for assistance or use a
pair of jewellery pliers to help remove your dermal top. Only use pliers if
they are proper piercing pliers and have been sterilised thoroughly. If you are
unsure about changing your piercing at home it is always best to ask for help
from your piercer, especially the first time. After they have shown you what to
do, you may find you will now be able to change your piercing yourself.
Insert your new dermal top by screwing it into place,
ensuring that it is firmly screwed in. Always make sure you have washed your
hands with anti-bacterial soap before handling any part of your piercing or
jewellery and make sure you have sterilised your piercing jewellery.
