AESTHETIC DERMATOLOGY(BOTOX, FILLERS)
LASER – PLEXR
BLOODLESS SURGERY(EYELID SURGERY, XANTHELASMATA)
Plexr is a device that:
Creates a potential difference between handle and epidermis
Forms a costal arch similar to a small thunder (electrical, electrostatic charges)
Eliminates the liquids of the skin’s tissues, without though the temperature that is caused by the small “thunder” to penetrate deep in the tissues. As for the elimination particularly, it is meant that the elastic skin fibres get smaller and increase the tissue’s thickness. Thus, the “lifting” effect is evident as bloodless, non-removable around the eyelids’ area, the face in general, the neck, the V-neck line and other more specific parts.
Mainly the ‘Plexr’ is a rather soft surgical procedure, so there is no anesthetic, incisions or stitches, surgery scars or generally surgical risk. Sessions range from one to three (depending on the case) per 28 days, with the ultimate effect after their completion, the same as that of a classic eye-lid operation or somehow similar to any effect of a surgical intervention for eliminating wrinkles and excess skin.
The basic difference of the Plexr against the classic eyelid operation- that makes the first method to be overrated of the second one- is that with the new method, which is gradually carried out, the correction margin is indeed evident(during sessions) for a flawless and total effect, without the unpleasant conditions of a corrective classic surgery due to imperfections, like lagofthalmo and ectropion.
Protection of adjacent tissues.
Selective Sublimation Keratinocytes
The classic way of correction of the excess and eyelids’ skin relaxation is the eyelid surgery itself. Quite a few people keep avoiding it, either because they are frightened of the general or local anesthesia and needles, the surgery room, the possible complications that may arise, like ecchymosis, visible scars, asymmetrical correction, lagofthalmo, entropion or ectropion in the lower eyelids. The new method of a non-surgical eyelid procedure with the Plexr technology, comes about to provide solutions and to minimise any hesitations and fears of those who wish to correct the eyelid relaxation problem.
Plexr makes use of the fourth condition of materialism: The Plasma. Plexr is the state of the art in Europe for Medicine. It is a portable device that operates wirelessly. Plexr uses a small electric arch, in order for the temperature in a particular zone to be selectively increasing. Thus, the dermatological tissues are evaporated without influencing the deeper skin layers.
The technique is quite dynamic, since the patient must blink during the correction process so to trace the skin’s fold and to be carved. The procedure is carried out through the sublimation of the dead keratinocytes. The pelxr technology is used for the creation of little spots of 500 mm which exhilarate the surface keratinocytes without actually influencing the basement membrane, without causing haemorage, necrosis in the surroundings tissues, without overcorrection or other side effects.
The procedure is a mild gradual correction of relaxation, which is usually achieved in three sessions, per almost 20 days, so no intense difference to be spotted in the final outcome. The implementation is carried out in the surgery, timewise no more than 20 minutes after the application of an anaesthetic cream known as EMLA, around the targeted area. The correction usually involves both eyelids in the same session. The patient might return to one’s duties and activities the very next day. About the scars, a sealed make-up is used as a veil; the little black marks from the plexr’s spot subduce by themselves(one must not rub or remove the scabs) in a few days and in their place, a red spot still remains which is gradually retreating. The edema that is caused by this procedure is extremely mild and yields in more or less two-five days; Side effects are not evident.
