What is PLEXR® ?
PLEXR® is the brain child of Professor Giorgio Flippi. It is a high performance device created for use in cases where the use of laser or radiofrequency is difficult. PLEXR® is one of the latest technological innovations available in Europe for aesthetic use and offers a non-invasive (that’s right – no surgery!) option to many skin problems and afflictions *.
PLEXR® makes use of the fourth state of matter i.e. Plasma. Plasma is an ionised gas, in other words a gas that has been energised to the point where the electrons will break free from, but still travel with, the nucleus. PLEXR® works on the principle of ionising gases in the air, creating plasma which in turn creates small electrical arcs, almost like small bolts of lightning. These arcs increase the temperature to the problem or affected area, without spreading heat to the surrounding areas.
This technology was developed mainly as an alternate to eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. PLEXR® is a major advance in eye treatments and provides an alternative to surgery at a fraction of the cost.
As with any skin treatment or procedure, more than one session may be needed *. Once a session is complete tiny little scabs or crusts may form in the areas that have been treated. These may last for a few days *.
After the scabs or crusts shed, the skin underneath will be a pale pink. A medicated liquid foundation is applied straight after the treatment; this will assist the healing process and provide a form of cover or camouflage for the patient. There may also be slight swelling in the area. The length of a procedure will vary from patient to patient, but make provision for at least an hour.
Cost depends on the size and depth of the scar or other area to be treated, such as eyelids. We suggest that you book a consultation with Dr Botha in order for her to make a full assessment.
Other advantages of a non-invasive aesthetic treatment option, like PLEXR® include:
- No injectable anaesthetic required.
- No incisions, no stitches.
- Low risk procedure with minimal side effects *.
- Very little down time at home or in the hospital – most patients return to work the same day *.
