At the Aesthetic Derma clinic, Dr Nikolaidou combines medical and cosmetic dermatology to address certain skin concerns, hypertrophic scars. Hypertrophic scars can be treated with various methods including cortisone injections or microneedling. Our experienced doctor will guide you on the most appropriate treatment for you, according to your needs.
With regard to cortisone injections, depending on the type of scar, the injections may need to be repeated. Injections are usually given on three occasions, four to six weeks apart, to assess your body’s response. Treatment may continue for several months if the scar is improving. Results are longterm.
After the Dermapen procedure, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface, in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. 48 to 72 hours following the dermapen application, you will have an increase in collagen production. It can take up to 4-6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long-lasting result. The number of treatments required varies per person response and condition being treated. As a general guideline, 4-6 treatments are required, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The results are truly long lasting for up to 2 years.
