What is plasma in the Eyelid lifting treatment?
Plasma due to it’s specific properties is called the fourth (next to gas, liquid and solid) state of matter. During the operation of the micro plasma beam on the patient’s skin, the external layers of the epidermis sublimate – evaporate, which causes a improvrmrnt in skin tension in the treated area. The effect of this action is to shrink the excess sagging skin in the treated area, which in turn leads to raised eyelids and wrinkles reduction.
In contrast to other techniques, plasma used in PLEXR does not cause inflammation of surrounding tissues, because its action is limited to the boundary of the basal layer. PLEXR does not cause bleeding and necrosis of surrounding tissues. These observations were confirmed in histological examinations of tissues treated with PLEXR device. Thanks to this, PLEXR does not exclude patients from everyday activities – the makeup indicated by the doctor is enough to cover the treated areas during healing.
Researchers from the University of Medical Sciences in Rome in 2005 began working on the development of plasma micro generator technology and its use in non-surgical upper and lower eyelid surgery – blepharoplasty and treatment of wrinkles resulting from sagging skin laxity in various areas. PLEXR appeared on the Italian market in 2010. Since then, the mycoplasma technology has been constantly developed and improved under the guidance of professors from international Medical Universities.
As a result, a fully “mature” product has emerged that perfectly combines the effectiveness of treatment and safety, providing patients with optimal therapeutic effects without excluding them from everyday activities.
PLEXR is a plasma generator that produces a controlled and targeted plasma energy thanx to ionization of gases contained in the air. Plasma is created between the tip of the device and the skin of the patient thanks to the small electric arc, which in a controlled way is able to sublimate the skin and shrink, tighten the skin which results in reduction of droopy eyelids raised eyelids and the effect of a fresh opened eye look.
We use Plexr in such skin problems as: skin dyschromia, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, smoker wrinkles around the mouth. Acne scar correction, reconstruction of tissue, biostimulatiion plasma effect. Plexr is not only used during the lifting of the eyelids surgery but also correction of folds and wrinkles around the ear and mouth.
Over 5 years of clinical trials and observation of thousands of patients showed that by using this non-ablative technique, we can achieve the desired skin tone around the eye and consequently eliminate skin folds and mimic wrinkles.
PLEXR as non-ablative dynamic sublimation blefaroplasty is a great alternative to traditional surgical methods, mainly due to the excellent aesthetic effects, but also because of the patient’s comfort during the treatment and during the healing process. PLEXR gives optimal clinical effects, the procedure is simple and safe for patients, and – which is worth checking – leaves no traces of surgical intervention.
