Plexr for More Vibrant Skin: 7 Complaints it Corrects

Plexr for More Vibrant Skin: 7 Complaints it Corrects

The Plexr® system uses state-of-the-art plasma technology to treat a number of cosmetic skin issues. At Advanced Eye Center in Hialeah, Florida, Rodrigo Belalcazar, MD, uses the Plexr system to help women and men get clearer, smoother, more youthful complexions — all without surgery, anesthesia, incisions, or downtime.

What’s more, a treatment takes an hour or less. If you’re seeking a nonsurgical solution for your complexion issues, Plexr could be just what you’re looking for.

What Plexr can do

The Plexr system uses a handheld device to emit streams of plasma energy, creating tiny areas of controlled damage beneath the skin’s surface. The skin responds by triggering a cascade of healing responses, replacing damaged, wrinkled, and sagging skin with tissue that’s healthier, firmer, and smoother.

At Advanced Eye Center, Dr. Belalcazar uses Plexr to treat lots of issues, including these seven:

1. Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are among the first noticeable signs of aging. Plexr is highly effective in treating both issues, eliminating excess skin while promoting the development of new, firm skin. The result is skin that looks and feels smoother, more toned, and more youthful.

2. Discoloration

Plexr’s handheld applicator allows for high precision, allowing Dr. Belalcazar to treat tiny areas of hyperpigmentation — such as freckles — as well as larger discolorations.

3. Scars

Scar tissue forms as part of your body’s natural healing process. When skin is damaged, your body produces a fibrous tissue to close the wound and provide an added layer of protection. While some scars fade over time, others can stick around. Plexr works by eliminating damaged tissue and triggering the growth of healthy tissue to restore the area.

4. Sun damage

The warm sun might feel good on your skin, but too much sun can cause premature aging of your skin. The sun’s UV rays can damage the structure of your skin and usher in wrinkles, uneven tone and texture, and dark spots. The good news is Plexr can address these problems in a single treatment.

5. Acne

Research shows that Plexr treatments are helpful in treating all types of acne. The plasma technology can rid follicles of bacteria and debris, and treatments can be repeated over time based on each patient’s unique needs.

6. Stretch marks

Stretch marks happen when part of your body grows too quickly for your skin to keep up. Stretch marks are common due to puberty, significant weight loss or weight gain, and pregnancy. Plexr helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks by eliminating damaged scar tissue and replacing it with new, healthy tissue.

7. Old-looking eyes

Plexr can be used to achieve many of the cosmetic effects of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), as it can get rid of bags, dark circles, and sagging lids. Many patients choose Plexr to correct aging eyes without the risks and costs associated with eyelid surgery.

Beautiful, youthful skin — without surgery

Whether you have one skin issue that’s bothering you or several concerns, there’s a really good chance Plexr’s versatile plasma technology can help. In fact, Plexr’s ability to treat many skin problems in people with different skin types makes it an increasingly popular treatment for patients of all ages.
