Suffering to be beautiful is well and truly outdated. Today, aesthetic medicine offers non-invasive technological feats still unknown to the general public. This is the case of the PlexR, a medical device which notably makes it possible to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. Presentation with Dr. Nathalie Deschamps-Lefèvre, ophthalmic surgeon and co-founder of the ophthalmological center of western Paris: OPH78.
PlexR: the technology that dazzles
Insiders call it PlexR; officially, it is Plasma Exeresis technology distributed by the Spega Medical laboratory. And if it is more and more talked about in insider circles, it is because it has enough to make our crow’s feet tremble. Available for less than 10 years on the medicine and aesthetics market, it uses the energy of an ionized gas to pulverize the upper layers of the epidermis. It can be compared to a high-flying peel, capable of tightening the tissues and correcting excess skin, especially on the eyelids. A boon for individuals suffering from xanthelasmas or dermatochalasis, who find there an opportunity to escape the traditional blepharoplasty. And who better than an ophthalmologist to rejuvenate our delicate eye contours?
A response to the boom in aesthetic medicine among young people
PlexR, a technology of the future? Dr. Deschamps-Lefèvre, who works at OPH78, is convinced of this. Moreover, studies affirm it: young people from the selfie generation are abandoning creams with vaporous promises to resort en masse to the charms of an ever more accessible and socially valued aesthetic medicine. Because, contrary to popular belief, it is the 35-50 age group that is in the crosshairs of the plasma movement. Ideal for smoothing wrinkles and lifting the eyes, it comes as a complementary technique to other much better known local treatments, such as botox and hyaluronic acid injections. A real plus, therefore, to prevent the signs of skin aging at 360 degrees… But you still need to be aware of its existence.
Visible effects from the 1st or 2nd session… and without pain!
No bread no gain? Nay. The reign of tingling needles and cutting scalpels is losing ground every year. And for good reason: if the PlexR has a bright future ahead of it, it’s also because it’s totally painless. The gas is projected by a kind of pen which never comes into contact with the skin. Even the anesthesia phase remains comfortable, since it is confined to the application of an analgesic cream on the treated areas. A non-invasive process, which leaves no visible scars and definitely has everything to seduce even the most impressionable among us. According to the initial diagnosis, 1 to 4 sessions are enough to soften the appearance of the stigmata of time. Count an average price of 350 € per session in the Paris region. All you have to do is make an appointment!
