Plexr is the world’s leading medical plasma device offering a non-surgical alternative to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid correction), Most patients who have this popular treatment complain of hooded, baggy or saggy eyelids.
Plexr is a non-surgical solution to excess eyelid skin that rejuvenates the eyes helping patients look refreshed, confident and youthful. is much less invasive than a conventional blepharoplasty and the healing time is measured in days rather than months.
Soft surgery treatment is a non-invasive bloodless, reliable, easy to implement and safe procedure. This is one of the main benefits of Plexr over a surgical blepharoplasty.
KEY TREATMENT AREAS
DR BERRY'S ADVICE
Upper/Lower Blepharoplasty (eyebag/eyelid correction)
Wrinkle reduction or saggy/folded skin
Perioral lines/smoking lines
Scar tissue including acne scars
We must be careful when discussing whether a treatment is considered permanent. The reason for this is it gives the impression that the ageing process will stop, this is not possible. The results from Plexr are permanent and will not reverse over time however, after your treatment your skin will follow your normal ageing profile. This is exactly what would happen with a surgical blepharoplasty and is part of the natural ageing process. Plexr does a similar job to a surgical blepharoplasty it removes skin and tightens skin in the treated area.
Aftercare is as important as your treatment. If you do not perform good aftercare your results will be severely affected. You must carefully follow the full aftercare instructions to avoid complications like infections or hyperpigmentation. We will provide the aftercare information at your treatment. Dr Berry will supply you with Oxygenetix which is to be used twice daily. This product will help camouflage the crusts and assist the healing process. You must be prepared to take time off work. After treatment, you will be swollen for several days. You will also have black/brown crusting on the treated area which will persist for up to 2-3 weeks after treatment.
Up to 45 minutes
Topical anaesthetic applied prior to treatment
DURATION OF RESULTS
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
In most cases only one treatment is required, but for deeper wrinkles/folds or scars a second procedure may be required to obtain optimum results. Expected outcomes will be discussed with Dr Berry as part of the consultation process.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients will see results instantly and this will continue to improve over the course of weeks following as the area heals and produces new collagen.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Plexr generates a 4th state of matter called plasma (not the plasma in blood), using the air molecules in the tiny space between the device and target skin. This plasma has a unique ability to gently sublimate (make solid become gas) the target skin. Aside from mole removal, all skin tightening procedures are not removing all the skin but just the very surface, leaving the underlying dermis intact. This is also typically done in a dot-like (fractional) pattern to avoid significant downtime. This process leaves carbon crusts which fall off in the coming days after treatment. Eventually the skin regenerates and it is this NEW skin which is they key. Plasma seems to trigger a powerful cascade of bioremodelling with new collagen and elastin being made. The skin thus becomes architecturally younger and therefore tighter. Plexr is the most powerful non-surgical skin tightening device that currently exists.
