WHAT IS PLEXR?
Plexr Plus (or plasma soft surgery) is a non-surgical treatment used to lift the eyes (blepharoplasty), by treating the skin laxity. It is also used to improves scars, treats moles, skin tags and other unwanted superficial skin legions. Unlike surgical treatments for these problems, Plexr Plus does not require general anesthetic and recovery time is much shorter than the surgical approach. Downtime is usually 5-7 days.
The treatment uses plasma – the fourth state of matter after solid, liquid and gas – and is performed using wireless handheld devices which are manufactured in Italy. The Plexr Plus Soft Surgery device has been used and licenced in several countries worldwide over the last 10 years. It is the first Health Canada approved licensed plasma technology.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Plexr Plus device creates plasma by ionizing gas particles between its precise 0.5mm-wide probe and the skin, creating an electrical arc. The technology is very precise so specific areas like the eyelids can be treated without touching or harming the skin.
Plasma is described as “a lightning bolt”. When lightning hits the ground, it vaporizes everything and leaves only black carbon. On the skin, plasma vaporizes cells and all that is left is carbon in the form of a crust.” This crust heals, leaving the treated skin behind. As well as vaporizing – or “sublimating” – unwanted skin, it has the triple effect of causing the remaining tissues to tighten and boosting collagen production.
Plexr Plus has a wide range of uses. The most popular is non-surgical blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), but it can also be uses for wrinkles, superficial skin lesions, scars, acne, and keloid scars.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A topical anesthetic cream will be applied which takes around 45-60 minutes to take effect. There is no need for them to have local anesthetic injections, go under general anesthetic or stay in hospital. Non-surgical eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) will be done with the anesthetic cream while moles and keloid scars may require an injection.
Treatment can usually be done in 10 to 40 minutes, depending on the area. Patients have reported some procedures using Plexr Plus as being painless with the anesthetic cream.
