Exposure to the sun and the natural effects of ageing can bring about changes which are often not welcomed. As we age, the connective tissue in the skin will change and the collagen and elastin fibres responsible for the firm and plump appearance of the face will reduce in number and functionality.
One of the most telling areas where this loss of elasticity can be clearly seen is the eyes.
Until recently, the most effective and conventional way to improve the appearance of loose and saggy skin around the eye area is with a surgical procedure known as blepharoplasty.
Although blepharoplasty is a relatively straightforward procedure, it must be carried out by a skilled plastic surgeon, under local or general anaesthetic and in an operating theatre.
The results are good but also dramatic and very noticeable.
At Absolute Aesthetics, we have noticed a definite change in attitude from our patients and seen a welcomed swerve towards more subtle anti-ageing procedures that look less conspicuous and more understated, with patients aspiring for a less dramatic and more natural looking result.
Plexr is a non-surgical solution to heavy and tired looking eyes. It uses a new plasma technology that tightens the skin without the need for cutting or stitching, making it a popular choice with patients – particularly those who would prefer not to go under the knife.
It achieves subtle and very natural looking results without dramatically changing the appearance of the patient. Results provide more visibility of the upper lids (making is easier to apply make-up) and patients tend to look less tired.
There is a little downtime after the procedure. Some swelling for a few days and small brown crusts will form on the treatment area. These tend to fall away naturally within a week of the procedure.
Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment for a consultation or would like more information regarding the Plexr procedure. You can also telephone us on 01483 477 189 or 020 3757 7178.
Plexr is available at the Absolute Aesthetics London and Guildford Clinic.
