Plexr is a revolutionary innovation in the field of aesthetic medicine. Until recently, sagging skin on the eyelid could only be removed by surgery. Now, plasma technology has enabled medical professionals to perform this treatment non-surgically. Plexr removes excess skin in a process called sublimation, meaning no cuts or stitches. The heat generated by the Plexr plasma-pen sublimates (vaporises) the skin to remove unwanted skin and stimulates new collagen and elastin to help tighten the remaining skin.
Plexr can treat sagging skin around the upper and lower eyelids, create a brow lift, reduce scars and remove benign moles, warts, skin tags and sebaceous cysts.
Plexr treatments require a consultation prior to treatment, during which they will carry out a medical history check, assess the area(s) of concern and agree upon a treatment plan to suit your needs. The consultation will enable you to ask any questions you may have. Immediately before treatment, your practitioner will take you through the consent documents and take pre-treatment photographs. The skin will be cleaned and numbing cream applied. Once the skin is numb, the practitioner will start the treatment, which can take around 45-60 minutes. Once the treatment is complete, after care cream will be applied and a full aftercare given the doctor will apply after-care cream and give you aftercare details to enable you to assist skin healing at home.
Plexr has a very high success rate in patients. Depending on the amount of loose skin, you may need more than one treatment for a superior result. The treatment is available to Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV as darker skin types have a higher risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
A patch test is not required for Plexr treatments.
Most patients tolerate treatment well with numbing cream. Skin will feel warm and sensitive after treatment, but not painful.
Following treatment, the skin will be red, swollen and crusty. It takes up to 7 days for the
swelling to subside and 7 days for the majority of the crusting to slough away. The skin may appear pink for a few weeks after treatment. Your practitioner will recommend a concealer suitable for this recovery period.
Plexr treatments are carried out by our nurse practitioner or our highly experienced aesthetic practitioner.
We ask that you attend the clinic without make-up, that skin is not tanned prior to treatment and that you stop using some skincare products such as retinols for one week prior to treatment. You will be asked to provide a full medical history, medication and skincare details at your consultation.
Wart / mole removal starts at £150. Blepharoplasty (eyelids) from £399
