Advantages Vs Surgery: 

No injectable anaesthetic required, No cutting of skin, No stitches required, Very low risk procedure (NO risk of blindness as there is with surgery) Minimal side effects and far less downtime, Quick & easy procedure, Most patients can return to work the same day, No thinning of the skin, Significant cost saving

PLEXR causes sublimation which is the process of turning a solid straight into a gas so results are instant and there is no heat transferred to surrounding tissues to cause damage to normal skin. PLEXR uses plasma so there is no electric current which can cause problems for some patients and the treatments result in tissue retraction and tightening which gives even better results.

Local anaesthetic cream is applied for 30 minutes prior to non-surgical blepharoplasty to minimise any discomfort and the procedure is then virtually painless. For other areas, local anaesthetic cream or injections may be used to provide numbness. The treatment may feel hot in places and there may be a tingling or burning sensation afterwards. PLEXR plasma technology has been used worldwide for several years with no significant adverse events.

Following PLEXR treatment, tiny dark brown/black spots may appear or there may be an appearance more typical of a burn. Swelling is common and often lasts several days and can be quite significant around the eyes. The area will often be red and warm immediately after the procedure and can be quite tender for a few days. Patients may experience a tingling or burning sensation. Crusting or a scab can develop and it is important to keep this clean, dry and protected. 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.

Final results depend on severity of skin laxity or size of lesion, the desired result, the general condition of the skin and any pre-existing skin or medical problems. Reduction in skin folds and creases appear immediately. Tiny dark brown spots appear where individual shots have been fired or a larger burn-like appearance may be seen where an area has been ‘sprayed’ with plasma. The tiny dark brown spots flake off over the following days (up to 2 weeks) and burns will heal within a similar period. 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.

Aftercare Advice

Immediately after treatment, there may be a burning sensation. This will usually resolve during the remainder of the day although if it is particularly uncomfortable or persists for a longer period, then an anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen can be taken.

Following treatment, it is normal to have some swelling. This can be significant around the eyes and can last for several days and may lead to interference with vision in the initial period.

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.

Often more than one treatment is needed for optimum results. There should be at least six weeks before any further Plexr in the same area.

The thread forms part of an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis. The lifting effect is at its peak 6 months later when collagen has formed around the threads. The lifting effect lasts between 2-3 years

Dermapen™ Acne Scars

Suffering from Acne Scars: Dermapen™ treatments can produce drastic results improving the appearances of acne scars. The micro-needling action of Dermapen™ creates new collagen and elastin through a process called collagenesis.

New capillary growth is also a result and an added benefit. This can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin, as well as provide a healthy foundation for new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue.
