A dermal anchor can be placed anywhere on the body, and that includes the genital area.
Women can get one ore more implants in the pubic mound, and frequently it is placed above the mound which brings out the microdermal piercing beautifully when the person is standing.
Others opt for microdermals on the outer labia. Men have the option of a dermal anchor in the shaft of the penis or the pubic bone.
Dermal anchors are still relatively new. Since their introduction in the middle of 2006, the popularity of microdermals has skyrocketed. Initially, jewelry similar to nose studs were used. A loop under the skin was intended to help it grow in and stay in place. However, experience showed that specially designed implants provided better results.
Currently, there are a number of different implants that we can use, allowing us to place it on almost any part of the body.
Depending on the area of the skin, and the depth of the piercing, we select the most suitable implant. For example, an implant in the pubic bone will differ from one inserted into the shaft of the penis.
This will depend largely on the spot in which the dermal anchor has been placed.
A dermal anchor can take between 3 and 8 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel.
It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself.
Disinfectant solutions containing alcohol or chlorine should be avoided.
It is important that when you turn a dermal anchor (for cleaning or coating purposes) you do so in a clockwise direction, because this will ensure that it stays in place.
The single-point-piercing should be touched as little as possible (wash and disinfect your hands if doing so), and exposed to as little irritation as possible as well. Do not remove or twist the piercing when cleaning, since this can further damage the wound canal. Use ProntoLind-Spray and ProntoLind-Gel twice a day for the first 2-3 weeks, then once a day for another 3 weeks.
