Our skin naturally starts to lose elasticity and suffers from a reduction in facial fat and muscle volume from as early as 25 years old. As we age, or due to excessive lifestyle circumstances, the accumulation of excess skin can make our appearance look tired and droopy.
Hooded eyelids commonly refer to the delicate areas of skin found between the eyeball socket/lid and the eyebrows.
The effects of hooded eyes are quite emotional for some people, as a fatigued complexion and perceiving they look older than they can affect confidence and self-worth.
Introducing Plexr to combat hooded eyelids
Plexr is a non-invasive treatment using sophisticated equipment to target hooded eyelids and rouse skin-revitalising results.
The Plexr machine ionises the air to produce plasma that directly targets specific areas of the skin, such as the brow to the lash line typically associated with hooded eyelids. The machine does not use an electric current and clients do not need anaesthetic.
The procedure creates minute dots on the skin that look like singe marks. Eventually, the dots fad leaving replenished, youthful skin due to deeper skin cells tightening and withdrawing.
The benefits of Plexr to counteract hooded eyelids
Some industry experts and aesthetics professionals consider Plexr a genuine alternative to plastic surgery. The Plexr treatment lasts a similar amount of time with fewer side effects and associated risks. Cost is also a factor, being more affordable than going under the cosmetic knife.
Plexr can target small regions of the skin without adversely risking surrounding areas. This makes the treatment perfect for the face’s delicate and often intricate features.
Because Plexr works by sublimation, turning a solid into a gas, it can also be used to treat skin lesions, scars, and acne, remove tattoos and as part of a non-surgical facelift.
How does a Plexr treatment to remove hooded eyelid work?
A consultation with a professional, medically trained aesthetic doctor is your first step to learning more. A qualified clinician will evaluate your skin during a consultation and ask questions about your lifestyle. Depending on your circumstances, it may be that other treatments are advised as an alternative to Plexr, such as less invasive treatments using evidence-based creams or dermal fillers.
If Plexr is suitable, a treatment plan will be recommended. Several treatments may be required, with a six-week interim between each treatment to allow time for the skin to settle. Strict downtime of one week immediately following treatment is also recommended because the skin will be inflamed. While this irritation is perfectly normal and attracts more revitalising products deep into the skin to improve quality, it is something to bear in mind when considering Plexr and its impact on work and social commitments.
