Physicians are looking for new resurfacing alternatives that are as effective as ablative lasers but with fewer shortcomings. Plexr Plus is a cordless micro-surgical hand operated device that transfers concentrated heat to the treated skin tissues.
Low risk, minimal downtime and more affordable.
Plexr Plus (or plasma soft surgery) is a non-surgical treatment used to lift the eyes (blepharoplasty), by treating the skin laxity. It is also used to improves scars, treats moles, skin tags and other unwanted superficial skin legions. Unlike surgical treatments for these problems, Plexr Plus does not require general anesthetic and recovery time is much shorter.
The treatment uses plasma – the fourth state of matter after solid, liquid and gas – and is performed using wireless handheld devices which are manufactured in Italy. The Plexr Plus Soft Surgery device has been used and licenced in several countries worldwide over the last 10 years. It is the first fully licensed plasma technology to be introduced in Canada.
Plasma is described as “a lightning bolt”. When lightning hits the ground it vaporizes everything and leaves only black carbon. On the skin, plasma vaporizes cells and all that is left is carbon in the form of a crust.” This crust heals, leaving the treated skin behind. As well as vaporizing – or “sublimating” – unwanted skin, it has the triple effect of causing the remaining tissues to tighten and boosting collagen production.
Plexr Plus has a wide range of uses. The most popular is non-surgical blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), but it can also be uses for wrinkles/rytides, superficial skin lesions, scars, acne, and keloid scars.
Depending on what the area is that’s being treated patients will be given a topical anesthetic cream which takes around 45 minutes to take effect. There is no need for them to have local anesthetic injections, go under general anesthetic or stay in hospital. Non-surgical eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) will be done with the anesthetic cream while moles and keloid scars may require an injection.
