Plexr Plus (or plasma soft surgery) is a non-surgical treatment to tighten loose skin. It is used for the following:

  • Non-surgical upper and lower eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
  • Non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose slimming)
  • Non-surgical labiaplasty (female genital labia reduction)
  • Wrinkle treatment (crow’s feet, 11 lines, forehead lines, marionette lines, lip lines, smile lines, etc.)
  • Jawline tightening
  • Acne and other scar reduction
  • Skin lesion removal including moles, skin tags, keratoses, cherry angiomas, etc.

Before Your Treatment

Provide a detailed and accurate medical history including medications, allergies and previous aesthetic treatments/complications. 

Consider the aftercare instructions/downtime as well as timeline for expected results prior to scheduling your treatment. This treatment typically has 7-10 days of downtime. Do not undergo aesthetic treatments right before a vacation or special event. 

Avoid tanning, hair removal, sunburn and active skin care ingredients such as retinol immediately prior to treatment. 

Cancel your appointment if you are acutely ill or have a rash or cold sore in the treatment area. Those with a history of cold sores (Herpes Simplex 1) should take a course of antiviral medication in advance of procedures in the perioral area. 

To reduce swelling after the procedure (especially if treating around the eyes), your provider may recommend you start an anti-histamine medication protocol several days before your treatment

If possible, please come to your appointment with your face make-up free and freshly washed. Remove contact lenses and wear glasses if necessary.

What To Expect At Your Treatment

Your provider will begin with ‘before’ photos and will review steps, expectations and instructions. Next, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical cream one hour before your appointment.

The Plexr pen will then be held near the skin in the treatment area, creating an electrical arc which will tighten the skin and leave a  series of dark spots caused by carbon dust.

Immediately following treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, increased warmth/sunburn-like sensation and mild tenderness.. The treated area will be covered in pinpoint carbon dust spots which typically scab and fall off in the recovery phase.

An in-person follow-up appointment will be scheduled for 2-4 weeks.

After Your Treatment

Avoid touching and water to the treatment area for at least 2 days

Protect the skin from the sun with sunglasses, hat and clothing

Manage any discomfort or swelling with cold spoon application or by placing a clean ziplock bag with cool water on the skin

Continue to take anti-histamine medications for at least 2 days

Do not pick scabs and instead, allow them to loosen on their own

Resume wetting and washing the area gently on day 3 and dry with a clean towel

Re-apply tinted moisturizer on day 5. Once all scabs have exfoliated, re-apply 3-4 times daily for at least 30 days
