PlexrPlexr is a non-surgical treatment which offers an effective alternative to surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid correction).
Plexr creates a plasma arc to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin in a process that takes 2-4 weeks. There is no scalpel or laser used and therefor no stitches.
Following a consultation to see if you are a suitable candidate for Plexr, when you return for the procedure numbing cream is applied to minimise any discomfort. Treatment time, including topical numbing cream, may be 20-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. One to three treatments may be needed for each area at 6-8 week intervals.
The treatment is performed with dots created by the Plexr device to sublimate (change from solid to gas) the superficial skin cells without bleeding or damage to surrounding tissue.
Following treatment, the areas treated will be red with swelling. At the site of each dot, there will be a carbon crust that should not be touched except to camouflage for 7 days. You will need to keep the treated area clean, dry and protected from sun exposure or direct sources of heat for a minimum of 30 days. You will be given creams to apply for the following week which can aid with the healing process.
Unusual side effects include infection, scarring or pigmentation changes. It is imperative to follow after care advice to avoid such complications.
Plexr must be done only by doctors who have undergone training.
Dr. Christodoulos Borodimos is the only one in Epirus who is trained to use Plexr.
