Plexr launched in the UK – Aesthetic Monthly

Aesthetics distributor Fusion GT has launched a new non-invasive lifting device in the UK. According to Fusion GT, Plexr can perform all types of non-ablative surgery without risk to either the practitioner or patient.

Marketed as a ‘soft surgery device’, Plexr uses the ionisation of the gases in the air to form plasma, which creates a small electrical arc that treats problem areas – without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding skin.

Plexr is a wireless device, described by the manufacturers as ergonomic. It can be used for numerous aesthetic concerns, for face and body lifting, treating acne and scarring, and to perform blepharoplasty.

After initial success in Italy, Fusion GT are now launching the product in the UK along with free training courses for practitioners. The next course will take place in October.

Vibrance needle shaping device launched in UK

Fusion GT has launched a needle-shaping device to the UK aesthetic market that claims to aid volume reconstruction of the face and body. Vibrance is a microsurgical product that claims to allow practitioners to perform micro transplants of the subcutaneous layer, while simultaneously performing bio-stimulation. It does not inject any kind of filler or drug. According to the distributor, Vibrance can use a mix of electric currents blended together to perform various kinds of treatments with different protocols, selectable by the practitioner. Treatment indications include lip enhancements, cheekbone reconstructions, water retention reduction and skin toning. Fusion GT also claims thatImage_009 Vibrance can be used to treat scars and expression lines, lymphatic electro-drainage and the mobilisation of adipose tissue. The portable device is battery operated, and all parts that are in contact with the skin are made of bio-compatible material. Vibrance has so far been successful in Italy and Greece

Excellent results without risk for the patient

Many people affected by excess skin on the eyelids, giving them a tired and “aged” expression, avoid undergoing a blepharoplastic procedure for fear of being put under anaesthetic or of encountering possible complications that can follow the traditional procedure.

From the most common “dog’s ears” to asymmetry between the eyes, to hypertrophic scars and cheloids up to lagophthalmos and irreversible sight damage, as recently reported in the national and international press. The radiofrequency of the radio scalpel finding a preferential pathway in the optical nerve to discharge the laser light towards the electrode mass (diffused, diffracted, reflected, conducted and absorbed) is certainly no less risky.

Non-ablative blepharoplasty, as the name implies, does not use a scalpel or laser to remove the excess skin, therefore avoiding the risks inherent in the traditional procedure.

This blepharoplasty technique is defined as “dynamic” as it allows the operator to ask the patient to open and close their eyes during treatment, thus highlighting the folds of skin still to be treated. This technique is also defined as “non-ablative” as it is performed without incision, without removing excess skin, without removing fat tissue and without altering the orbicularis muscle in the eyelids.

The dynamic non-ablative blepharoplasty procedure is performed by eliminating the corneocytes through sublimation. It should be noted that by sublimation we mean the direct passage from the solid state to the gaseous or airiform state.

The operation is performed through small dots made with a Plexr machine, each 500 microns apart, to allow perfect plasticity of eyelid movement to be obtained as soon as the procedure is complete.

Each of these dots sublimates the superficial corneocytes without affecting the basal lamina and without causing bleeding and, most importantly, without causing any necrotic damage to the surrounding and underlying tissues.

With non-ablative blepharoplasty realised after years of research, in addition to the traditional reduction of excess skin from the upper eyelid, it is possible to shorten the excess skin at an external periocular level with the consequent disappearance of zygomatic periorbital expression wrinkles.

A typical session lasts a maximum of ten minutes and the punctiform scabs, less than a millimetre in size, fall off after around three to seven days (maximum).

Today we can finally confirm that non-ablative dynamic blepharoplasty by sublimation is definitely superior to traditional surgery, both for the splendid aesthetic and functional effect and for the total elimination of discomfort in the patient compared to the risks and costs of surgery.

Currently, there is strong demand from Asian patients to modify the eye line, exposing the lacrimal caruncle and giving the eyes a more “western” look.

In order to obtain this result, patients are prepared to pay high prices and be subjected to repeated surgical procedures that in many cases result in problems. With non-ablative Plexr surgery, optimum results can be obtained, simply and without risk, giving the treated eye a western line without any visible signs of cosmetic surgery.
