Treatment of body stretch marks

Body stretch marks are due to a rupture in elastin fibres following a sudden weight fluctuation or pregnancy. Hormones also play an important role, e.g. during puberty or pregnancy.
In addition, as we grow older, fibroblasts loose their ability to produce collagen and elastin, so they cannot form a firm complex leading to a considerable sagging of the skin and further deterioration with marks on the skin.

When they first appear, stretch marks are red and gradually fade with age. It is best to treat them while they are still red.

Unfortunately, there is no way to restore them fully, but we can improve their appearance.

At Nefer Beauty Salon & Diet Centre, we use appropriate methods with the aim to improve body stretch marks, following the stimulation of fibroblasts in order to produce collagen and elastin, so that we have a firm and healthy-looking skin with smaller marks!

For intense skin tightening

Derma Pen

Derma Pen is a non-invasive method of intense skin tightening and reduction of stretch marks. It is extremely effective in areas such as the arms, inside of thighs, belly etc. It can be applied to all skin types without causing any side effects.

How is Derma Pen applied?

Derma Pen is a pen-like device that has a dispossable head with fine needles attached to its tip. The length and number of needles are chosen by the beautician depending on the result we want to achieve and the particular needs of each client. Applying the Derma Pen to the areas we want to treat, we create sligh and painless pricks. The tiny pricks stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, thus boosting skin’s firmness. At the same time, those pricks become a pathway for the special gels or serums applied during the treatment, to be absorbed by the skin.

This has 2 advantages:

  • Through slight pricks, we are able to pass all the active ingredients we are going to use deeper into the skin.
  • The resulting “micro-trauma” activates the healing mechanism, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin.

The results of Derma Pen are fast and impressive.

  • It gives vitality.
  • It smooths out stretch marks.
  • It effectively treats scars and marks resulting from surgery, burns or injuries.
  • It deeply moisturises and nourishes the skin.

The stages of Derma Pen we follow are:

  • Skin cleansing & antisepsis
  • Application of local antiseptic
  • Application of anesthetic cream
  • Application of regenerating – firming serums
  • Use of the medical needling appliance It increases the absorption of serums by 300 times!
  • Replenishing oil with high-power vitamin A & Lactic acid

We recommend special products for use at home to enhance proper collagen production and skin regeneration. It is advisable to apply them 15 – 30 days before the session and continue their use for at least 1 month after the sessions.

Cost: 150€

Number of sessions: 6 -12 treatments

Focused Treatment of Strech Marks

Plasma Lift Pen for stretch marks

Plasma Pen is a new generation device used to boost collagen production, resulting in the treatment of sun blotches.

The device ionizes nitrogen from ambient air and creates a micro-electric discharge or plasma “arc”, used for aesthetic purposes. Treatment is non-invasive. The “arc” never touches the skin, but it is positioned about 1mm above the skin. It causes a superficial micro-injury to the skin, where the stretch marks are. This is known as Fibloblasting, which is the activation of its natural healing mechanisms, without adversely affecting the surrounding tissue.

Plasma Lift Pen Stretch Marks Tightening, offered at the Nefer Beauty Salon & Diet Centre, produces real Plasma and not just electricity. This is important, because the skin-created burn from the Plasma arc is controlled, superficial, targeted and it works exactly where we want to intervene to regenerate the skin and not deeper.
During the session, the tip of the Plasma Pen needle remains cold.
The skin is treated through the arc created.


  • It reduces stretch marks.
  • It tightens the sagging skin of the body (e.g. belly, arms etc.).
  • It removes skin irregularities caused by premature ageing and ageing in general.

What is plasma?

Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, while the other three are the following :

  • Solid
  • Liquid
  • Air

Unlike the last three states of matter, plasma does not naturally exist on earth under normal conditions and can only be produced artificially from neutral gases.

How is the treatment applied?
The device has a pointed end, which during the session approaches the skin where there are stretch marks and just before touching it, the plasma “arc” (like a small lightning bolt) is created between the skin and the end of the device.
The arc is small and controlled. It leaves small, superficial burns on the skin, which last for 7-10 days

Is the treatment done over a whole area of ​​the body?
If there are a few stretch marks, then we treat them all in one session.
But if stretch marks are found, for example, all over the thighs and belly, then we should divide the surface into 4 sessions. This is because we need to leave the skin the time needed to heal and produce healthy collagen, without shocking the body.
Usually after 20 – 30 days we would treat the remaining areas.

Should the skin be prepared before the Plasma Pen session?
For the best response to stretch marks reduction with Plasma Pen, we prepare the skin to produce healthy collagen & elastin.
At least 15 days before, the client should start applying products that enhance the function of the skin at home. Such products mainly contain ingredients with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Peptides, suitable for the skin of the body.

Following the Palsma Pen Neck Lifting session, what care should be taken and what should be avoided?
