I'm having mine removed soon as it has sadly started to reject. It's survived nearly two years though without any major issues, so I'm pretty pleased. What's the longest you've heard of one surviving? How long have yours lasted?

My micros in my ribs are a good 2-3 months old, so far haven't had any problems.

All 6 of my microdermals rejected around the 6 month point, give or take a month or two. They don't last long in my body.

i've had 2 of 18 reject, and i now have 17 still in (i recently replaced one of the rejected ones). 2 have been in for 16 months, 2 for 14 months, and 12 for 10 months. the first one that rejected lasted just over 6 months, and the other lasted just over a year.

I've had one for two years, as of now.
The other ones though rejected (three of them). One lasted only 2 months; the forehead ones rejected after 5 months.

Microdermals are semi-permanent mods sold by most studios as permanent procedures for a huge amount of money.

I've had one in my chest for three and a half years, and one in my philtrum for nearly two years. I did some on my cheeks last January, and had a couple done on my lower back in July. They are all very happy. :)

Mine lasted for about 2-3 weeks before it started acting up for no reason. It was taken out about 5.5 months after it was done... My skin diver on the other hand will be hitting one year next month :)

i removed my mons pubis microdermal in the summer after about a year and a half when it was finally starting to reject. considering i inserted it myself and it was my first attempt i'm not complaining. i didn't think it would last three months.

I have 2 clavicals last a year + with no issues.. Then I accidentally ripped them out.

My 5 mons pubix microdermals are now 3 1/2 months old and looking fabby!

I've been doing microdermals for 4 years now, and I have clients that have had them on since I started. I guess it depends on the skin and how the person takes care of them

I've had ones in my wrist last close to a year , altho I just had to remove two of them , getting tattooed around the area irritated them , So I removed them.

Upper chest ones have been in for 8months & going strong, my first dermal under my chin has been in for over a year & a half now.
Dermal under the paant line has surprised me with the healing & lack of irritation from it,
 
cheers

I really feel like that is an inaccurate statement. I soaked mine everyday and took very good care of them. :/

Just sayin..the reject, and sometimes it doesn't matter how well you baby them

Mine only lasted six months. I tried to hold on to it for another month after it started rejecting but finally had it removed. Was pretty pissed about it too as it was a b-day gift to myself.

I have been dermaled a dozen times in the past 2 1/2 years. I still wear four and they are fine.

Most of the problems I have had with my dermies were seatbelt and dog caused issues. I am rough on piercings.

They all have lasted longer then 2 of my 3 surface piercings, 2 of which rejected at the 6 month mark. My first surface piercing is 5 years old and not going anywhere.

I do believe the hype on surface anchors to be bullshit.

All said in good fun. I did end it with "Surface Anchors",the proper term. So yeah, no kidding.

By the way, what gauge are your gauges? Wink

Yeah the only surface piercing I've ever tried was my eyebrow which grew out within a matter of two weeks. Had it pierced twice more then gave up. I don't think I'll ever have another surface piercing. My microdermal is actually positioned about a cm from where my eyebrow was pierced so I am actually impressed with its two year life span in comparison.

Let's be clear, dermal anchor/microdermal's semi-permanent characteristic refers to the removability not the longevity, so to say it'll last forever is very misleading.

Mine is in my arm, i've had it for more than 2 years now.
It's pretty solid, but it does stick out further than it should which bothers me a little bit.

Mine on my cheekbone has been happy for 2 months now with no problems, I'm waiting for the 6 month point to change the head (long time I know but I'm scared to mess with it lol). I read somewhere that if they start to reject it is because they become uneven and the skin gets pissed off so to fix it you put your finger on it and push it back in to "reset" it into the right position. I'm not sure how accurate that is, I'm no pro. Anybody want to collaborate on this?

Pushing on it or forcing it down with a band aid doesn't always help. If anything, it can make problems worse. If a microdermal is rejecting, chances are you will not be able to reverse it. If there is migration, it happens, but pushing on it won't make it migrate back into your skin. Doing these types of things can cause the microdermal to flare-up and secrete. Even the pressure from sleeping on them can cause them to flare up from time to time.

Yeah I didn't think it was that accurate, on that note, every now and then I sleep on mine (cheek bone) on accident, then when I wake up and soak it in salt water, I will touch it with my finger (to check on it) and notice a little bit of tenderness.. should I be worried? It is only 2 months old and I am very picky about it. If it rejects I will be smashed lol, I love my micordermal.


Posted By: Cale
Date Posted: November/11/2010 at 3:33am
The ones on my cheekbones are 11 month old and a few times a month they're red and secreting when I wake up. The right one especially. There isn't much you can do about plowing your face into a pillow during sleep. If it's meant to be, it will stay.
