PlexR and pigmentation
I am doing PlexR treatments for two years now and there is no really risk for discoloration, but the specific aftercare advice must be followed by the patient at home.
Compared to similiar treatments like Fraxel, other lasers, microneedling and deep chemical peels, in my experience PlexR is the option with the least risk for hyper- and hypopigmentation.
Skin discoloration after plexr
As with any energy based device skin discolorations are always a possibility.
Meticulous after care and sun protection in the darker skin types and very light skin types (typically Fitzpatrick type 5 and type 1) will reduce the incidence of persistent redness and hyper pigmentation.
I have used Plexr in all skin types since 2015 and have noticed that 5-10 % of patients can have skin discoloration for up to 12 weeks after treatment.
