Plexr Blepharoplasty Soft Surgery
Plexr is the game changer
Plexr is a revolutionary innovation in the field of aesthetic medicine and surgery. Plexr removes excess skin in a process called sublimation allowing us to tackle a multitude of problems without a single cut or stitch. The results are incredible.
What is PLEXR Soft Surgery?
Plexr is a patented new technology that removes excess skin by a process called sublimation. Plexr creates a plasma arc which 'zaps' away excess skin. Plexr can only be carried out by a fully trained, registered and insured doctor. It is a very safe and effective treatment.
What can Plexr be used for?
The application of Plexr is infinite. It is commonly used to treat areas/problems such as:
• Brow lift
• Saggy skin around the eyes (non-surgical blepharoplasty)
• Scars & stretch marks
• Acne (active or scars)
• Tattoo removal (any colour)
• Tightening skin in any part of the body e.g. neck & jowls
• Removing benign moles/warts/skin tags/sebaceous cysts
consultation appointment 30 minutes, treatment appointment 90 minutes, follow-up appointments 20 minutes each.
Numbing cream followed by numbing injections.
You will need to keep the area clean, moist and protected from sun exposure. You will be given an aftercare kit with creams to be applied twice a day for 7 days. This helps to promote healing and optimise your treatment results. You will need to protect from sun exposure until all of the redness has settled post-treatment.
• Crusting of the skin (a thin crust forms over the area treated with Plexr)
• Swelling (for up to 7 days)
- Soreness/itching at the treatment site (for up to 7 days)
Prior to treatment, the doctor will discuss Plexr in detail with you, including a thorough review of the risks/complications and how to look after the treated area to ensure you get the best results.
Plexr has less down-time (5 days compared to 14 days with surgery), is safer (no general anaesthetic), has more reliable results (i.e. no asymmetrical eyelids!) and is significantly cheaper. However, more extensive facial ageing problems may not be solved with Plexr alone e.g. significant skin laxity and drop requiring surgical face lift.
• Plexr vs Other Acne treatments (e.g. chemical peels, creams or Roacutane)
Plexr can treat active acne and acne scars. Active acne will not re-emerge in areas treated with Plexr so it is useful in preventing acne, the results are seen quickly and fewer treatment sessions are generally required, the skin is not generally sore/painful after Plexr, no regular check-ups or blood tests are required with Plexr.
• Plexr vs Other methods for removing skin lesions
Plexr can remove large skin lesions without leaving any scars.
• Plexr vs Other methods for Tattoo removal
Plexr can remove tattoos of ANY colour.
Crusting or a scab can develop and it is important to keep this clean, dry and protected. Sometimes the area can be sloughy. If the area becomes red, hot and tender or if there is pus present, it is important to contact the clinic as this may suggest an infection.
Swelling is common and can be quite pronounced around the eyes, often worse the following morning and lasting for several days. The area may be tender as it is healing and may scab over or become a little sloughy.
It is important to allow any spots or scabs to fall off naturally otherwise scarring or infection may occur. As the treated skin is sublimated, the results often last years or permanently. After treatment we advise keeping the treated area clean, dry and protected using a broad spectrum sunscreen. Mineral make-up may be applied. Avoid exposing the area to extremes of heat or cold until it has healed. If any doubt, contact the clinic for further advice.
Cold compresses may be applied to reduce the swelling.
If the swelling is more severe, an anti-inflammatory medication and/or anti-histamine may help alleviate the swelling.
Crusting will usually develop over the treated area, this will often initially be brown or black on the surface of the skin and flake off over the following days. It may take over 2 weeks to completely disappear. It is essential to not pick at this crusting as this may lead to infection or scarring.
Occasionally the treated area may become a little weepy, this is part of the normal healing process and will improve with time. However, if it starts to become hot or red or if there is any pus present, then please contact the clinic for advice as this may suggest an infection has developed.
It is essential to keep the treatment area clean, dry and protected with a broad spectrum sunscreen. Do not use alcohol based cleansers. Do not apply a plaster or an occlusive dressing over the area.
