What Is Non-Surgical Eyelid Reduction (Plexr)?

Plexr (which stands for Plasma Exeresis) is a patented new technology which works through the non-ablative process of ‘’sublimation’’ to remove excess skin without the need for invasive surgical cutting.

Sublimation means the transition of a substance from a solid to a gas without passing through a liquid phase.

Plexr is a safe and effective solution and patients will see instant results including a reduction in skin folds and creases immediately after their first Plexr session.  The treated area(s) will continue to improve for 3 months after treatment, so it is important to remain patient. Results are usually monitored at 2 and 6 weeks post-treatment.

What Does It Involve?

During treatment, the plasma is formed through the ionisation of the gas, which works to stimulate the contraction, shortening and tightening of skin fibres, resulting in the reduction of the skin surface.

There is no transfer of heat to surrounding tissues so no damage is caused to normal skin and there is no electrical current which can cause complications for some patients. The device itself, which has received CE approval, comprises of three wireless handpieces that each offers varying degrees of treatment.

After cleansing the skin an anaesthetic cream is applied 20-30 minutes prior to treatment. Patients can open or close their eyes throughout the procedure, allowing practitioners to target all areas effectively. Once the session is complete, a medical-grade foundation/concealer is applied to the treated area to conceal any discolouration and medication can be prescribed for pain relief should a patient require. 

The treatment is permanent and works by setting a new skin laxity baseline. However, the skin will continue to age and eventually you may see problems such as wrinkles or sagging skin re-appear (usually after 5+ years following initial treatment). Plexr treatments can be repeated to improve these signs of ageing. 

The area will need to remain clean and dry and patients should not expose their skin to the sun for approximately 30 days post-treatment.  Patients will also need to schedule 2 more appointments with their consultant to monitor healing and results.

What are benefits of Plexr?

Plexr is often considered to be a better alternative to surgical options.

  • Less downtime (5 days compared to 14 days with surgery)
  • Safer (no general anaesthetic)
  • More reliable results (i.e. no asymmetrical eyelids or potential ptosis)
  • Significantly cheaper

However, more extensive facial ageing concerns may not be solved with Plexr alone. For example, significant skin laxity and droop may require surgical intervention. 

Commonly Treated Conditions 

Plexr can also remove large skin lesions without leaving any scars so is a highly preferable option for removing lesions located in prominent or obvious areas.
