Improve your image and skin texture, and reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles and fine lines. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we use Dermapen, ensuring precision in microneedling treatment, to offer you more revitalised, firm and younger looking skin.
What is microneedling
Microneedling or mesotherapy collagen formation with microneedles is an anti-ageing treatment that aims at rejuvenating and improving skin smoothness and texture.
Microneedling uses special microneedles to stimulate the natural production of collagen and, at the same time, to facilitate the infusion of appropriate active substances in the skin.
With this method, the doctor intervenes and treat fine lines, stretch marks, acne scars and brown spots with unbelievable accuracy.
It is an extremely safe and effective treatment performed worldwide. It is suitable for all skin types, including dark and sensitive skins.
How microneedling is performed
At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, microneedling treatment is performed with the Dermapen device. Dermapen is a state-of-the-art tool for dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
It resembles a large pen, with extremely fine needles on its head. Due to its shape, the doctor has extreme flexibility in handling it and accuracy when targeting. This way, he intervenes precisely at the right spot, while the surrounding tissue remains intact.
With the special microneedles, we create small holes / minor injuries on the skin. This activates the restoration process (healing) of the skin and stimulates the natural production of collagen. The skin looks firmer and healthier.
At the same time, we insert active mesotherapy substances percutaneously. The depth and number of the microneedles are determined depending on the area treated and the desired result.
What areas of the body it is indicated for
The parts of the body that microneedling with Dermapen can be applied with spectacular results are:
- Stretch marks
How long the treatment lasts
Session duration: Less than 30 minutes (for the face, neck and cleavage)
Number of sessions: 3-4 once weekly.
It is a minimally invasive and well tolerated procedure, which does not require any recovery time. Immediately following treatment, you may return to your daily activities as usual.
What the results of microneedling are
Microneedling with Dermapen:
- Reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines as it stimulates collagen production.
- Firms loose skin.
- Smooths out superficial marks, such as acne scars or stretch marks.
Results can last from 6 to 8 weeks. The duration of the results depends on several factors, such as general health condition, diet and sun exposure.
Microneedling with Dermapen offers similar results to chemical peeling, laser and skin curettage. As opposed to these methods, it does not remove the skin and, therefore, does not require any recovery time.
What the possible complications of microneedling are
Following treatment, a mild or moderate irritation arises, which subsides in a few hours.
Following the end of treatment, you will be given detailed instructions on what to avoid and look out for.
What other treatments can microneedling be combined with
For a more comprehensive result, you may combine various treatments in the same session.
On your first appointment, the doctor will diagnose your needs and, based on these, will formulate a Geoplasty Signature Treatment plan tailored to your needs. He will select the suitable combination of treatments that can offer you the desired result without affecting one another, and eventually improve your face.
