PlexR® treatment for ageing skin
One of the key signs of ageing is when the skin on the mid and lower face starts to sag and becomes thin and crêpey.
So, when everything starts to ‘head south’, we look for effective and innovative ways to turn back the clock and regain our youthful appearance.
Invasive surgery isn’t for everyone, not just because of cost or necessity: they may be concerned about the side effects or implications.
In short, for many of us, surgery is simply not an option.
What is PlexR®?
PlexR® is a highly effective, non-surgical option for anyone wanting to lift the lower face and shrink away the loose, redundant skin that comes with ageing.
Only for use by a qualified doctor, PlexR® is state-of-the-art technology in a nifty, hand-held device.
It uses plasma (the fourth state of matter) to treat ageing, loose and unwanted skin in the lower face and the neck. The plasma sublimates (shrinks away) and tightens the areas of skin that have become saggy and unattractive.
PlexR® treatment at Dr MediSpa in Loughton, Essex
Dr Munir Somji at Dr MediSpa is a highly skilled, medical professional and was trained exclusively by the distributors of PlexR®.
He will perfectly sculpt the face to create a less tired, more youthful and radiant appearance.
In your consultation for the treatment, Dr Somji will discuss realistic outcomes of the procedure. He will need to know about any medical conditions you have, to be confident PlexR® treatment is right and safe for you.
During your PlexR® treatment
Before starting the treatment, we will apply a topical anaesthetic. This needs about 45 minutes to take effect.
The PlexR® procedure is not painful, but the anaesthetic helps to reduce any discomfort around more sensitive areas. The doctor will advise you about taking paracetamol before the treatment, to further minimise discomfort.
During the PlexR® treatment, you may be aware of a slight burning smell and some warmth in the treated area. This is the sublimation process at work, and nothing to be worried about.
The treatment time for the lower face and neck areas – after the anaesthetic has taken effect – is about an hour.
Side effects and aftercare
You will experience some swelling and small brownish spots after PlexR® treatment. This is normal and will heal within about 7 days of the treatment.
To help the skin to heal, you should not pick or scratch the treated area.
We will give you advice and recommendations about healing creams and camouflage makeup, in your consultation and after the treatment session.
You should see the results of the PlexR® immediately after treatment.
But the beauty of PlexR® is that the results will only get better as time goes on.
The plasma’s effect on the upper cells of the skin is to produce new collagen, leading to plumper and more hydrated skin.
