Excessive skin around the eyes is common, the skin is thin and subject to movement and friction. As we age, we lose collagen, skin’s vital building block, keeping skin plump and full, and the eyes are the first to show it, looking stretched, hooded and crepey. Traditionally, if you wanted to improve the skin around your eyes, you would need to have surgery for an eye-lift, a long recovery period and scarring. Luckily that’s no longer the case with Plexr…
What is a Non-Surgical Eye-Lift?
Plexr is a new cutting edge technology that uses sublimation to tighten the excess skin around the eyes. Sublimation is the process of converting a solid ( skin) to a vaporised gas which essentially removes and tightens excess skin. A precise handheld device directs energy to the skin immediately tightening tissues and lifting the eyelid. There is no need for a scalpel so any risk of a scar is minimal. When performed by an expert, the results are just as good as a surgical eyelid lift, without all the hassle and at a fraction of the cost!
What to expect before a Plexr Treatment?
You will need to be assessed by one of our doctors in a consultation appointment to determine if Plexr is right for you. On the day of treatment we will apply numbing cream to the area around the eyes for up to an hour to reduce the sensation of the procedure for your comfort.
What to expect during a Plexr Treatment?
During the treatment, cold air will be blown over the skin to limit any discomfort. The area will feel warm during the procedure but it takes less than 45 minutes.
What to expect after a Plexr Treatment?
Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will have tiny brown scabs. This is normal and it is very important not to exfoliate or remove these scabs. They will fall off on their own within a week. To camouflage them, we recommend using mineral make up.
The skin around your eyes will be swollen for 2-3 days and will gradually settle on its own. Once the swelling has settled you will be able to see the results.
When is the Best Time to Have Plexr?
NOW! A Plexr treatment can make the skin more sensitive to the sun as it is healing. In winter and spring the sun is naturally weaker and you are less likely to be exposed to the sun, making this the best time to treat hooded eyelids. Additionally, having your treatment now means that you will be fresh faced and bright-eyed by the summer holidays.
