Plexr® offers an effective alternative to surgical procedures such as upper blepharoplasty (eye lift and/or eye bag surgery).
It can also be used for a face lift or neck lift without surgery as well as treating lines and wrinkles, acne, scars and skin blemishes such as moles, warts and age spots.
As a non-surgical approach it is astonishing how good the results are. This versatile treatment involves no cutting of the skin, no stitches and doesn’t even need a local anaesthetic injection – numbing cream is sufficient.
The Plexr® treatment is carried out with a special probe-like instrument, which ionises the gas particles in the air between its tip and the patient’s skin. The ionisation creates an electrical arc to the skin which causes ‘sublimation’ – meaning that the tissue goes from a solid to gas state preventing unwanted spread of heat downwards or across the skin. The tissue then retracts and tightens – which makes it a very effective treatment for non-surgical eye, face and neck lifts. Treatment involves a series of shots to treat and sculpt the area in question.
The Plexr® system uses plasma to deliver the energy, so there is no electric current which can cause problems for some patients.
Dr John Tanqueray explains:
“One of the commonest problem areas we are asked about is the skin around the eyes, as we tend to develop heaviness and sagging above the eyes, and crepey and crinkled skin under the eyes.”
“Up to now we have been able to offer some subtle improvements with treatments like Botox, PRP and skin creams, and some more helpful improvement with Infini, but otherwise for a more significant result the choice has only been surgery.”
“The great news is that we now have an option for a significant improvement without resorting to surgery. Early results we have seen so far have been encouraging.”
