Nonsurgical blepharoplasty using plasma technology is the fourth most in-demand aesthetic treatment today, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. However, devices like the PLEXR® Plus from MedResults (Glendale, Calif.) are proving that plasma has much more to offer.
PLEXR Plus is a device that can treat a wide range of patient concerns including droopy eyelids, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Sometimes called “soft surgery,” this innovative device allows physicians to treat the entire face and neck for plumper, more youthful looking skin.
Tess Mauricio, MD, board-certified dermatologist and founder of M Beauty Clinic (Beverly Hills, Calif.) specializes in regenerative aesthetics and is known for her plasmabased specialties – the Rockstar Treatment and SUBLIMAX Eye Opener. “PLEXR Plus is a noninvasive plasma energy technology which resurfaces the skin without downtime. The Rockstar Treatment is a trademarked procedure inspired by my celebrity patients who crave anti-aging rejuvenation without downtime,” she explained. “It helps improve skin texture and fine lines, and promotes a lifting effect around brows, eyelids and jowls. Depending on the patient’s baseline, even a single treatment with PLEXR Plus can deliver results that patients are happy with.
“My SUBLIMAX Eye Opener uses the process of sublimation plasma energy to convert solid tissue directly to a gas, removing extra tissue without cutting or scarring,” Dr. Mauricio continued. “The result is nonsurgical retraction, tightening, lifting and rejuvenation of lax, droopy and hooded upper eyelids. Patients are loving the treatment and the fact that their eyes appear more open and rejuvenated.”
Plasma energy is an innovative advancement in aesthetic medicine. With the PLEXR Plus, plasma is created between the device probe and the skin resulting in a spark and superficial sublimation to reduce the total surface area of treated skin, without damaging the deeper layers of the dermis. The PLEXR Shower is a non-ablative modality with a specific triangle-tip that can be used to treat a large spot size allowing physicians to treat the entire face in five minutes.
Maryam Hekmat, MD, founder and medical director of VIP MedSpa Clinic (San Diego, Calif.) uses PLEXR Plus for skin tightening and rejuvenation for her patients. “I use PLEXR Plus mainly for upper and lower eyelid skin tightening, around the mouth and upper lip for deep lines, and also neck rejuvenation. This device is also a great add on to other procedures like a liquid facelift.”
Dr. Hekmat reported that the sublimation plasma energy of the PLEXR Plus allows her to treat a wide range of other patient concerns, as well. “I use PLEXR Plus daily for skin lesion removal and abdominal skin tightening, and I also combine the treatment with injectables like fillers to help with volume loss. PLEXR Plus has created a tremendous number of happy clients for us, and it shows as I have paid off my device in the first four to five months after the purchase!”
“My patients and I are very pleased with the results,” Dr. Mauricio added. “PLEXR Plus offers predictable results, and bridges the gap between non-invasive, nonsurgical procedures and surgery.” Thanks to versatility and efficacy, it seems the PLEXR Plus is a game changer for modern aesthetic practices.
