How Much Does a Microdermal Implant Cost?

 
 average costMedium: Typically $70-$100 
post E-mail post Post  

Microdermal implants[1] are piercings that are partially inserted below the surface of the skin. A microdermal anchor is inserted through an incision in the skin, which heals and leaves a small head poking out. The anchors are topped with small screw-in pieces that often feature gemstones, essentially appearing to be jewelry on the skin. Microdermal implants are increasingly popular as a new way to create a unique look.

Typical costs:

  • Microdermal implants typically cost $70-$100 for the piercing and the jewelry combined. Some piercing studios charge for the jewelry separately.
  • Microdermal implant body jewelry typically costs less than $15. Painful Pleasures[2] sells a variety of microdermal anchors and tops, most of which are priced under $10. The tops are interchangeable allowing a person with a microdermal anchor to rotate the visible jewelry.

What should be included:
  • Piercers should provide a clean, sterile environment for the microdermal implantation procedure. After the procedure, the implantation spot should remain covered to avoid snagging or infections, which can slow the healing process. The piercer should provide clear instructions for aftercare.
  • Body jewelry is either sold in pairs, sets or singularly and should be in sterile packaging.
Additional costs:
  • Removing a dermal anchor can be done at home, but it's not recommended. Piercing studios typically charge $10-$15 for body jewelry removal.
  • Aftercare products for the microdermal implants are likely to include a cleansing solution. H2Ocean[3] , a sea-salt based cleanser, costs $12 per 4 oz. can.
Discounts:
  • Geographical locations with more competition are likely to have lower prices.
Shopping for a microdermal implant:
  • Piercing laws vary by state. The Association of Professional Piercers tracks legislation by state[4] . The association also provides a searchable database of members[5] .
  • Look for a piercer that operates in a clean environment. Certificates of membership or from local health departments might be posted on walls.
  • Forbidden Tattoo and Piercing, a North Carolina-based shop, offers standard aftercare instructions[6] .
