While a good skincare regimen is important to keep your skin healthy, even the best and most rigorous routines can’t prevent wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging from making an appearance. That’s why every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans turn to noninvasive skin tightening therapies to help their skin look and feel firmer and smoother.
At Advanced Eye Center in Hialeah, Florida, Rodrigo Belalcazar, MD, offers the innovative, state-of-the-art Plexr® skin tightening system to tighten lax skin in women and men. If sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines have you looking older than you want, here’s how Plexr could help.
The Plexr skin tightening system uses plasma technology to tone and tighten skin without incisions, anesthesia, or sutures, and without the prolonged recovery time associated with more invasive skin tightening treatments. Instead, it uses tiny bursts of high-frequency plasma energy to trigger production of collagen and elastin, which are two components that keep skin firm, resilient, and elastic.
When we’re young, our skin produces plenty of collagen and elastin. But as we age, that production slows down considerably, leaving our skin to sag and wrinkle. Excessive sun exposure, smoking, and poor diet can also speed up collagen and elastin breakdown.
Plexr’s bursts of plasma energy gently heat your skin, ramping up production of collagen and elastin over time, so your skin looks and feels more like it did when you were younger. The gentle heating also helps your skin contract, so you can see improvements right away, too.
Plexr can be used on your face and other parts of your body, too. Most treatments take about 20-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area you’re having treated.
Prior to treatment, Dr. Belalcazar provides you with a list of instructions to prepare your skin. This includes using sun protection in the days leading up to your session and not wearing any makeup or lotions on the treatment area on the day of your appointment.
To begin treatment, Dr. Belalcazar first applies a numbing cream to your skin to keep you comfortable. Then, he passes the Plexr device over your skin, allowing the plasma energy to penetrate to the desired level.
Afterward, there’s no downtime, but you might have some minor, temporary swelling or redness. You may notice tiny carbon dots on your skin. These dots are part of the healing process and will go away as the area heals. Depending on your specific goals, Dr. Belalcazar may recommend a series of treatments for optimal results.
Lax skin happens to all of us eventually, but with Plexr, you can turn back the clock and enjoy the firmer skin of your youth. To learn more about Plexr treatment, call 305-707-6011 or book an appointment online with Advanced Eye Center today.
