Plexr Non Surgical Blepharoplasty
As we age we lose the elasticity of the skin so we develop excess skin in various areas on the body and face. One area in particular that shows the excess skin is the eyelids giving a tired, ‘hooded eye’ look.
Plexr uses plasma energy to reduce the amount of skin to produce tightening. Traditionally the treatment of choice was a blepharoplasty operation under local or general anaesthetic with the ensuing bruising, scars and stigma attached.
What areas can be treated with Plexr?
- Upper and/or lower eyelids, non-surgical blepharoplasty
- Smokers lines around the mouth
- Wrinkles on the cheeks
- Neck tightening
- Brow lift
- Upper arms
- Tummy especially post baby
- Stretch marks
- Skin tags
How does Plexr work?
Plexr uses plasma energy to coagulate (remove) the very top surface of the skin causing instant tightening. Because the energy does not go as deep as the basal membrane in the skin there is no bleeding and no actual cutting of the skin.
Dr Debenham was involved in the development of the Galderma Harmony Facial Assessment Process and will guide you through this at your complimentary consultation. Dr Debenham will advise you on which areas would be suitable for treatment. Dr Debenham will personally carry out your Plexr treatment. You will be required to sign a consent form after being given the time to ask any questions. Photos will be taken before each treatment.
Local anaesthetic is applied to the skin before the treatment. A tiny probe is held just above the skin which causes the plasma energy to be directed at the skin. The very top layer of skin is sublimated (removed) and the skin appears to have tiny brown dots on it and shrink. After the treatment a special oxygenating suncream is applied. This makes the skin dry up rapidly and protects it from sun damage. Depending on the amount of loose skin, a second treatment may be required but is included in the price.
The area will be slightly swollen for a few days and be dry and have a cracked appearance. At about day 5-7 the dry skin flakes off revealing very slightly pink skin but no scar. Depending on the area treated, the treatment is more obvious. Treatment to the upper lid is surprisingly un-obvious due to the crease of the lid. On the abdomen tape is used to keep the skin together whilst the skin dries up and flakes off.
Oxygenating suncream must be used after the treatment until the skin flakes off & can be continued as suncream/foundation. The skin must not be picked as this may lead to pigmentation.

How long does Plexr last?
Plexr works by tightening the skin and the results will last until the skin has lost more collagen and literally strecthed. The results last as long as surgery to the area.
