Plasma energy is proving to be an effective aesthetic treatment for skin regeneration and revitalization. Today, patients can expect to see a wider range of plasma procedures to address a variety of skin concerns thanks to inventive devices and treatments.
PLEXR® Plus by Med-Results (Beverly Hills, Calif.) is leading the way with treatments that allow physicians to offer innovative nonsurgical cosmetic procedures to a more diverse range of patient demographics.
According to Gamil Makar, MD, an Aesthetic Physician in Clifton, N.J., certain skin conditions can be distressing for patients and are very common. “Three of these conditions are skin tags, milia and xanthelasma, and while they are not usually severe, they can cause discomfort, embarrassment and self-consciousness for those who have them,” Dr. Makar reported.
To address his patients’ concerns, Dr. Makar believes the answer lies in plasma technology with PLEXR Plus. “As an aesthetic medicine professional, I see many clients every day with an array of skin conditions,” he began. “PLEXR allows me to offer safe and quick nonsurgical and non-invasive treatments for many indications. I am not worried about scarring, darker skin color, hypopigmentation or keloids, and often treat my clients in just one or two sessions.”
PLEXR Plus strategically employs pulsed power technology to convert atmospheric nitrogen into plasma. “A distinguishing feature lies in the fact that the energy does not penetrate the skin significantly, resulting in little to no thermal damage,” Dr. Makar added. “To remove these bothersome skin conditions, the procedure is relatively painless with topical numbing, and my patients recover soon after treatment.”
The PLEXR Glass Lift treatment is a combination cosmetic procedure using the PLEXR Shower tip and the revolutionary Act-O-Feel® topical solution. W. Christopher Croley, MD, aesthetic physician and co-founder of Skin & Tonic in Pace, Fla., explained how it works. “The PLEXR Shower is a non-ablative plasma treatment that delivers plasma energy over a large spot size of 1 cm to 2 cm and spread across a triangular shaped tip. A patient’s entire face can be treated in about 20 minutes with no need for topical numbing,” he explained. “Plasma energy creates microchannels for delivery of a combination of onabotulinumtoxinA and Act-O-Feel, which is a specialized blend of hyaluronic acid (HA), amino acids and vitamin C formulated to provide immediate plumping, hydration and smoothing of fine lines. Patients will immediately see tighter, firmer skin and the biostimulatory effect of plasma energy will encourage production of collagen and elastin, giving patients long lasting results, with maximal results apparent seven to ten days after treatment.
“In my opinion, PLEXR Shower results are superior to traditional microneedling techniques,” Dr. Croley continued. “Many of my patients have now had both procedures and often report that their skin had a better glow, appeared lifted and had more improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after receiving the PLEXR Glass Lift treatment, compared to traditional microneedling with a similar topical skincare product applied.”
PLEXR Plus allows physicians to offer a wide range of treatments for an even wider patient demographic, delivering both immediate and long-term results.
