Other than your beautiful smile, I’m sure you can agree that one of the best ways to show how happy you truly are is through your eyes. Maybe you can even recall your school photographer as a kid reminding you “don’t forget to smile with your eyes”.

At the end of the day, no matter how well you manage to take care of your pearly whites over the years, it’s inevitable that gravity has taken its toll on your body’s largest organ, your skin, leaving the skin around your eyes less “perky” than in your youthful years.

If you suffer with wrinkly or “foldy” skin around your eyes, you may feel like your skin contradicts the way you feel inside– youthful, cheerful, and happy!

But guess what– Your youthful years aren’t over yet. In fact, award-winning Skin Care Physician Dr Shehla Ebrahim has embarked on a mission to erase years of aging from your eyes so that your eyes can smile again!

Her Secret? 

A new plasma technology that shocks your aging skin with rejuvenating lightning bolts– I’m not kidding, keep reading!

Below we will highlight what the New Plasma Treatment (Plexr Plus) does, and the top 4 reasons why it’s worth it for you!

1. What is Plexr Plus?

I bet you’re still here because you’re curious on how Plexr Plus sends rejuvenating lighting bolts to your wrinkly and droopy eyelids and under eyes.

Although it sounds “shocking” (pun intended), I promise– it’s safe and non-abrasive!

In simplified terms– the device works to create plasma, by ionizing gas particles between the device and the skin, creating an electrical discharge (or mini “lightning bolt”), to the skin.

Just like a lightning bolt that hits the ground, vaporizing everything on site, only to leave black carbon behind, the plasma technology does the same thing. It applies mini electrical discharges (or lightning bolts) to the skin, vaporizing cells (aka unwanted wrinkled skin), solely leaving behind carbon in the form of crust. As this “crust” heals, the skin becomes tightened and promotes collagen production to the treated area.

In addition, similar to how a lighting bolt somehow pin-points the tip of an electrical pole, the device is extremely precise, and uses a 0.5mm-wide probe, which allows it to target the treated skin to a T. Yes, even those tiny little wrinkles on your eyelids!

So you love the idea of being struck by mini lighting bolts, but aren’t sure if the treatment is worth it for you?

Here are 3 jaw-dropping reasons why a Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty may be worth it for you!


2. No surgery is needed

One common procedure for treating sagging, crappie, or aging eyelids is surgical blepharoplasty (a facelift for your eyelids/ under eyes). During this procedure, a  portion of the skin on your eyelid, or under the eyes are removed and restitched to create a lifted effect. 

The cons of this procedure? Just like any surgery, eye lift surgery:

  • Is abrasive

  • Imposes high possibility for infection

  • Results in longer (and more restrictive) down time

  •  Can lead to asymmetry in the eyes (which is typically only noticed following the procedure/ healing process)

Though many have had great results with surgical blepharoplasty, the cons listed above has been the reason as to why many, yourself included, have shied  (or been scared) away from the procedure altogether.

On the other hand, non-surgical blepharoplasty is a non-abrasive alternative to eye lift surgery, done by a cordless micro-surgical hand-operated device known as the Plexr Plus. The device works to apply concentrated heat to the area of treatment, without any risks or permanent side effects.


3. Timely procedure and quick recovery time

So you love the idea of a non-surgical blepharoplasty, but are still curious about the procedure timeline and downtime? 

One major benefit of a Non-surgical blepharoplasty done by Plexr Plus is how timely it is! You can expect to receive a local anesthetic cream or local anesthetic injection, depending on the specifics of your treatment, which would then kick in within 30 minutes. From there, your skincare physician will start the procedure which can take anywhere from 10-40 minutes depending on the treatment area.

Another major benefit– quick recovery times! Following your treatment, you can expect a downtime period of about 4-5 days, with rejuvenated eyelids and under eyes at around 4-6 weeks post-treatment.


4. Cost effective 

One of the reasons why you may have shied away from a surgical blepharoplasty in the past (aside from the whole surgery part of it all), is because of the high costs associated with surgical blepharoplasty.

When it comes to non-surgical blepharoplasty, your wallet won’t be crying! Not only is non-surgical blepharoplasty a much lower cost than what you may have been quoted for a surgical blepharoplasty, but its cost is commonly compared to other plasma technology, landing at $1500 per treatment area.

It’s a win, win– Happier eyes, and an even happier wallet!
