Micro Dermal Aftercare Instructions

We suggest wearing a round circle band aid on the dermal anchor at night time for the first two weeks. This will allow time for the dermal anchor to get locked in tighter to your skin. The band-aid will help protect your dermal anchor.

Take one sterile cotton ball, rinse dermal anchor with warm water and lather it with one pump of the Dial anti bacterial soap. Hold the cotton ball lightly over the dermal anchor for about 2 minutes. This will loosen up any dried blood or crustiness. After 2 minutes remove the cotton ball, rinse dermal anchor with water and use a sterile paper towel to dry your dermal. anchor. As a routine you must use a sea salt solution 3 times daily for 2 weeks.

DO NOT:  please don’t use alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, ointments, gels, or creams on your piercing. Don’t submerge piercing in any body of water, no swimming 4-6 weeks. Keep as dry as possible even in the shower.Good to know: your anchor may appear to be healed in days when in fact it will be 2-3 months to heal. The first couple of weeks your anchor will not be on tight, be very careful.
