The Science: PLEXR uses plasma to sublimate the skin; the process of transforming solid (skin) into gas. It uses the difference in voltage between the device and the skin, generating a small electrical arc, similar to lightening, which sublimates the fluids contained in the superficial layer of the skin, without unwanted heat transmission to the adjacent tissues. There is no electrical current involved, reducing the risks for the patient, and as it acts only on the superficial layer of the skin, it reduces any potential permanent skin damage that could be caused by the misuse of conventional lasers.
It offers tissue retraction and tightening of the skin with instantaneous results.
Its uses include;
– Non-surgical blepharoplasty (eye lift)
– Acne and post-acne scarring treatment
– Hyperpigmentation treatment
– Mini-lifting eg. Jowls, neck
– Smokers lines removal
– Belly button lifting
– Treatment of scars
– Papulosa nigra removal
– Removal of warts, fibromas, moles, xanthelasma etc.
The Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty
Many people are affected by excess skin on their eyelids, which gives a tired and “aged” appearance. However patients often avoid surgery due to the fear of anaesthetic, the downtime, and the possible complications eg. irreversible visual loss.
This non-ablative blepharoplasty does not use a scalpel or a laser to remove the excess skin, thus avoiding the risks inherent in the traditional procedure. It is “dynamic” – the patient can open and close their eyes during the procedure, showing the skin folds that still need to be treated.
A standard session normally lasts a maximum of 10 minutes, and the carbon crusts, which are smaller than a millimetre, generally fall off between 3-10 days. Immediately after the procedure the treated areas will be red and swollen, typically settling within 48-72 hours. Camouflage oxygenating post-procedure foundation will be provided to use until all redness settled.
A subsequent session may be required after 6-8 weeks to achieve optimum results.
PLEXR in Acne Treatment
PLEXR sublimates the accumulated keratinocytes that contribute to the obstruction of the follicle, and inhibits bacteria growth, so comedones cannot recur in the treated area. It eliminates the cysts and nodules without the risk of scarring, and can be used on existing scarring to stimulate new collagen formation.
In addition, the sublimation of the keratinocytes leads to the increased absorption of topical treatments, increasing their efficacy and avoiding the need for systemic treatment.
Benefits of PLEXR
– No contraindications
– No scarring
– Minimal downtime
What to Expect;
– Carbon crust will fall off after 4-10 days
– Skin will continue contracting for upto 21 days.
– Oxygenetix foundation must be applied until all erythema settled (typically 6 weeks but can take upto 12 in some cases)
– Review at 6-8 weeks – may require a second session for optimum results
