What is PLEXR®?

Aesthetics of Essex are proud to offer Dr Sherif Raouf’s expertise and the alternative to Blepharoplasty : The non surgical eyelift.
The non surgical eyelift procedure called PLEXR® offers an effective alternative option to surgical procedures such as Blepharoplasty (baggy eyelid correction).
As well as tightening sagging skin under eyes, and as a result, reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the eye area, a non surgical eyelift is a relatively quick procedure for eyebag removal without surgery.

One of the key signs of ageing is loose or sagging skin on the eyelids and eyebags. The PLEXR® can effectively remove this loose or sagging skin without surgery and leaves no scarring.

This treatment is suitable for anyone looking for a non-surgical eyelift or eyebag removal (upper and lower lid blepharoplasty) treatment.

In comparison to surgery, this treatment is cost effective and affordable.

If you have bags under your eyes that are noticeable and would like to remove them without cosmetic surgery, then why not book a consultation for a non-surgical eyelid treatment?

Dr Sherif Raouf will use his expertise and experience to provide information about non surgical eyelifts, and let you know how the treatment can make your eyelid and eye area look younger and more youthful.

Before and after PLEXR® treatment

PLEXR® causes sublimation which is the process of turning a solid straight into a gas. It uses the ionisation of gases in the air to forming plasma. This creates a small electrical arc that can treat various problem areas without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding skin.

The treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be used to remove excess skin and reduce lines and wrinkles.

PLEXR® uses plasma so unlike other treatments where electric currents are used (which can cause problems for some patients) the treatment is relatively risk free and results in greater tissue retraction and tightening for even better results.

The treatment may feel hot in places and there may be a tingling or burning sensation afterwards.

You may experience some swelling and soreness in the treated area following your treatment. Any residual scabs will disappear within 7 days, but can be covered with liquid foundation.

We will discuss your treatment and what you can expect during your consultation.

Skin naturally loses elasticity with age, and it’s this loss of elasticity that results in sagging, loose and wrinkled skin. Some of the reasons why skin becomes saggy and loose include:

  • Thin skin – The skin in the eye area is very thin. Therefore, the skin around your eyes, including your eyelids, is prone to loosening and drooping with age.
  • Ageing and sun exposure – The sun and natural effects of ageing are great contributes to aging skins appearance. They can also cause the skin around your eyes to sag more.
  • Nerve problems – drooping or loose eyelids and eyebags can be caused by damaged nerves. If nerves that control the muscles around the eyes become damaged then droopy eyelids can occur.
  • Other reasons for why skin becomes baggy around the eyes include smoking, allergies, fluid retention and disorders such as Thyroid dysfunction.

In comparison to surgery, this treatment is cost effective and affordable.

This blepharoplasty technique does not use scalpels or lasers to remove excess skin around the eyes.

It’s a non-surgical alternative to eyelid surgery and does not come with the risks inherent to traditional skin removal treatments.

During the treatment, you will be asked by the doctor to open and close your eyes. This helps with identifing, targeting and tightening the loose skin around your eyes to give you the desired lifted results you and your doctor agreed to prior treatment.

Local anaesthetic cream may be applied for 30 minutes prior the non-surgical blepharoplasty to help minimise any discomfort.

The treatment consists of multiple shots spaced closely together in the treatment area (upper, lower or both eyelids). A typical session should last no more than 30 minutes.

After your treatment you will experience scabbing. These tiny point like scabs will fall off after 3 to 7 days. We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments every 6 weeks until maximum results are achieved.

  • A more youthful eye area
  • Permanent results
  • No recovery time
  • More awake and alert appearance
  • Tighter under eye area and no eyebags
  • Lifted upper eyelids and more defined crease
  • Reduced number of lines and wrinkles around the eyes

Amazing immediate results

For the last five years I've been fed up with the bags under my eyes. I'd used various creams and firming treatments which didn’t have much effect. My friend had the PLEXR treatments which removes the loose skin and the bags under the eyes. She recommended Dr. Sherif at Aesthetics of Essex. He said that I was suitable for the treatment – I couldn’t wait. I was so looking forward to the end result. After numbing the treatment took about Continue Reading
