Piercing removals do not always require medical treatment, but depending on the type of piercing may need it.
Dermal piercings are one of the types of piercing that may require removal by a medical professional. A Dermal piercing is a single-point surface piercing, which is different than typical ear piercings. These types of piercings are much more difficult to change, clean, and care for because it is embedded and sits within the dermis layer with an anchor keeping it in place. Since removal is not as simple as removing the back of an earring and taking out the jewelry, it is highly advised to have this piercing removed by a medical professional.
