My Eyebrows Are So Low and I Can't Really See Anything, Is Plexr Right For Me?

eyebrowIt would be best to comment by seeing the patient's photo, but to give a general answer, we can summarize the right candidates for plexr as follows:

1) Young patients with naturally hooded eyes and patients with typical 'Asian' eyes,

2) Middle-aged patients with some excess skin on the upper and/or lower eyelids and those who want to maintain their youthful appearance.

3) Elderly patients with excessive skin folds, wrinkles and unwanted eye bags and folded skin tissue on the upper and lower eyelids.

Within these counts, both plexr and botox application may be suitable for the patient for low eyebrows.

After Plexr, I usually prescribe creams for my patients with skin healing properties and to increase healing, and I definitely recommend sun protection products with SPF30 and above to protect sensitive skin.

Is The Area To Be Made Anesthetized Before The Plexr Treatment?

before plexrInstead of applying local anesthetic cream, I prefer local anesthesia for Plexr treatment. The comfort of my patients is very important.

How Long Does The Redness Last After Plexr Treatment? Can I Go To Work The Next Day?

after plexrAfter Plexr, patients go through almost the same process. Immediately after the treatment, the patient develops an intense crusting and after a short time these crusts begin to fall off, typically lasting about seven days.

On the second day, that is, the next day after the treatment, red and swollen eyelids occur.

On and after the treatment, when you go out or go to work, you can apply camouflage make-up to lighten your appearance under appropriate and hygienic conditions.

There are no restrictions to go outside, but you'd better not drive the day after treatment because of the possibility of swelling.

Will There Be Any Scars After Plexr?

Is Plexr Also a Treatment For Moles? Can Plexr Be Used To Treat Acne?

plexr and acneYes, of course. Plexr sublimates the accumulated keratinocytes that contributes to the plugging of the follicle and inhibits bacterial growth so that comedones cannot recur in the treated area.

It removes cysts and nodules without the risk of scarring and can be used on existing scars to stimulate new collagen formation.

In addition, it leads to increased absorption of topical treatments, namely acne scars that are tried to be treated with cream, increasing their effectiveness and eliminating the need for systemic treatment.

Is Scar Treatment Possible With Plexr?

Since Eyelid Surgery Is Surgical, I Want Plexr, But Do I Need To Apply It Again and Again?

plexrJust like the patient in this question, many people suffer from excess skin on their eyelids that gives them a tired and "aged" appearance.

However, patients generally avoid surgery because of the fear of anesthesia, recovery time and possible complications.

Plexr, on the other hand, does not use a scalpel or laser to remove excess skin so there are no risks inherent in the traditional procedure.

The patient can open and close their eyes during the procedure and show the skin folds that need to be treated. If there is a relapse over time, of course, Plexr can be made again.

Can Plasma Pen Be Used At Home?

plasma pen at homeNow, it would be useful to explain exactly what kind of system the treatment actually has. Plexr is a form of treatment that uses plasma energy for skin treatments, that is, converts solid (skin) into gas.

This is done with the help of a device. By using the voltage difference between the device and the skin, it works with a small electric arc similar to lighting, without the conduction of heat, the fluids in the superficial layer of the skin.

There is no electric current, the device reduces risks for the patient and, as it only acts on the superficial layer of the skin, possible permanent skin damage from the misuse of conventional lasers is not seen in the plexiglass.

Immediate results are obtained, it provides tightening of the skin. However, I do not find it appropriate to use such a complicated device at home because it can cause serious problems.
