Plexr is a new innovative way of tightening loose skin and is an impressive alternative to conventional intrusive surgery.

It is a fairly recent break-through in the cosmetic beauty field which is seeing some quite dramatic results. The treatment is most commonly uses for eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty), but suitable for treatment on loose skin around the eye and other applications. Until now ‘hooded’ or loose eyelids could only be corrected with a surgical blepharoplasty, an effective but intrusive surgical procedure requiring a good few weeks of downtime.

So what’s the hype over this new treatment? Well the Plexr treatment works when plasma is created when gases in the air are ionised. The treatment is processed by a portable hand piece. This creates a small electrical arc. The clinician uses the device to mark a small grid on the eyelid to create a retraction. This is done so precisely there is no damage to the surrounding tissue. There is no blood and no pain. Some clients have reported feeling a heating sensation, but honestly, it is not painful. Here at Doctors laser clinic we usually prep your skin with a disinfection of the area, and then we apply a topical or local anaesthetic cream, but that it all that is required. This is Plexr’s true benefit, natural re-profiling of the eye area, without a scalpel.

Following treatment, the eyelids swell temporarily, which settle in 48-72 hours. Some clients like to use ice packs to reduce the swelling and non-mineral make-up to address ay discolouration. But realistically we find that most clients tend to want to take 2-3 days of down time to give the skin time to readjust. We also see most clients for 2 or 3 sessions; clearly this is very much dependent on the individual. Believe me, the results are worth it.
