Plexr Treatment

Plexr Treatment

Plexr is a non-surgical treatment which offers an effective alternative to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid correction), face/neck lift and scar.

Plexr creates a plasma arc to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin in a process that takes 2-4 weeks. There is no scalpel or laser used and therefor no stitches.

What to expect?

Following a consultation to see if you are a suitable candidate for Plexr, when you return for the procedure numbing cream is applied to minimise any discomfort. Treatment time, including topical numbing cream, may be 20-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. One to three treatments may be needed for each area at 6-8 week intervals.

The treatment is performed with dots created by the Plexr device to sublimate (change from solid to gas) the superficial skin cells without bleeding or damage to surrounding tissue.

Following treatment, the areas treated will be red with swelling. At the site of each dot, there will be a carbon crust that should not be touched except to camouflage for 7 days. You will need to keep the treated area clean, dry and protected from sun exposure or direct sources of heat for a minimum of 30 days. You will be given creams to apply for the following week which can aid with the healing process.

Unusual side effects include infection, scarring or pigmentation changes. It is imperative to follow after care advice to avoid such complications.

What are the benefits of Plexr?

Plexr is an effective treatment for individuals with excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and photodamaged skin. This treatment can be performed on any skin type. This procedure does not involve cutting the skin or stitches meaning a faster healing time. It is an excellent option for individuals not ready for eyelid surgery or for those who are not suitable for a surgical blepharoplasty.

Is Plexr Safe?

Due to the revolutionary way in which PLEXR works, it is an extremely secure device. It is applied exclusively by a trained doctor. Plexr is also extremely safe for darker skin tones. However, if you have olive or darker skin, you will be prescribed a skin preparatory regime for 2-4 weeks use prior to treatment, to minimise the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In our Clinic we will discuss potential side effects with you during the consultation and you will be given plenty of time to pose any questions you may have.

Does this treatment hurt?

Some discomfort has been reported, but almost all patients can sit and talk during treatment. You are numb before Plexr and the subsequent care in our clinic includes cooling as well as application of a soothing gel. No one has yet canceled their intention to do a second treatment where needed, due to discomfort on their first visit.

How long will the results last?

No treatment gives permanent results, not even surgery. Ageing is a dynamic process and your Plexr treatment will not stunt further ageing. So many factors will influence the rate of ageing and therefore the duration of perceive results, such as lifestyle (smoking, alcohol etc), sun exposure, racial origin, genetics etc. Some people do suffer from accelerated ageing and we have encountered surgical patients coming to us for Plexr within a year or two of having had surgery.
