Microdermal Piercing Rejection

Microdermal piercing rejection happens when you place a foreign object in your body (i.e. microdermal piercing jewelry) and your body, for one reason or another, considers that foreign object a threat to your health and safety. In order to protect itself, your body slowly fights the object by pushing it and healing the skin behind it to eventually force the object completely out through the skin. The rejection rate of microdermal piercing is estimated around 2%, which is quite low compared to other types of surface piercings. The surface piercings most likely to reject are those that reside more closely to the skin’s surface such as nape, sternum, and madison piercings.

Microdermal Piercing Aftercare

Human body has the natural ability to heal a wound. Therefore, leaving the dermal piercings wound undisturbed will actually allow it to heal properly. However, you will still need to take care of the pierced site to assist in recuperation. Microdermal piercing causes bleeding. Once the bleeding stops, you should cover the pierced area with a bandage. This will protect it from germs and water, and thus, will maintain hygiene. Besides, the bandage will also hold the pierced anchor in its place. Don’t change the bandage or try to clean the skin underneath. Leave it without any kind of interference till you find its edges curling up. When the bandage removed, you will need to maintain hygiene in the pierced skin. Clean it with a lukewarm salt solution once a day. It will heal in 4-8 weeks.
