The Science Behind Plexr


In the ever-evolving world of aesthetic treatments, Plexr has emerged as a groundbreaking alternative to traditional around-the-eye surgical procedures. But what really sets Plexr apart? We look into the scientific principles that underpin this innovative, non-surgical eye treatment technique.

Plasma: The Fourth State of Matter

At the heart of Plexr is the concept of plasma. Most of us are familiar with the three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Plasma is often referred to as the fourth state. It’s created when gases in the air are ionized, meaning they gain or lose electrons, resulting in a mixture of positively charged ions and free electrons.

The Ionization Process in Plexr

The Plexr device capitalizes on this principle of ionization. When the device is brought close to the skin, it doesn’t touch the skin directly. Instead, it ionizes the gases in the air, creating a small electrical arc. This arc, or plasma flash, discharges onto the skin.

Precision and Cellular Response

The true genius of Plexr lies in its precision. The device is used to create a series of minute sublimation points on the skin’s surface. Sublimation refers to the process by which a substance transitions from a solid to a gas, bypassing the liquid phase. In the context of Plexr, the superficial skin cells are sublimated or turned into a gas without causing damage to the deeper layers or surrounding tissues.

This targeted approach stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin. Fibroblasts are cells responsible for producing collagen, the protein that gives our skin its elasticity and firmness. By inducing a controlled micro-injury, Plexr encourages the skin to regenerate and repair, leading to tissue tightening and a reduction in skin laxity.

Beyond Aesthetics: The Safety Profile

One of the standout features of Plexr is its safety. Traditional surgical procedures, like blepharoplasty, come with risks associated with incisions, anaesthesia, and longer recovery times. Plexr, on the other hand, offers a non-invasive approach. The absence of cuts and stitches means there’s no bleeding. The treatment’s precision ensures surrounding tissues remain unharmed, reducing the risk of complications.

Plexr for you

Plexr represents a fusion of physics and biology, harnessing the power of plasma to offer a safer, non-invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures. Its foundation in scientific principles, combined with its impressive safety and efficacy profile, makes it a game-changer in the realm of aesthetic eye treatments.
