Da Vinci is thought to have used the golden ratio, which is 1:1.6 and widely regarded as the key to create aesthetically pleasing art, when painting the Mona Lisa. Mondrian used it in his abstract compositions, as did Salvador Dali in his masterpiece The Sacrament of the Last Supper. The proportion 1:1.6 can be seen repeatedly in nature and beauty. The Ethos of Clinic 1.6 is to restore these aesthetic proportions to enhance or restore natural beauty.

Lines and wrinkles form around the face and neck as part of the ageing process. As skin ages it loses some of its properties and can form lines and wrinkles in areas of expression around the face.
The ageing face will also lose volume leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Understanding this process is of paramount importance when treating lines and wrinkles.
A combination of treatments using botulinum toxin, different types of dermal fillers and skin resurfacing can successfully treat lines and wrinkles resulting in natural immediate results with little to no downtime.

Before immediately after treatment
What can it do?: PLEXR® Plus can treat many different cosmetic concerns. These include tightening of excess skin on the eyelid and under the eye, raising the eyebrows and tightening facial skin to lift the appearance of the face, treatment smokers’ lines around the mouth, improving the appearance of scars and acne, tightening excess skin on the neck, tattoo removal and age spot and skin lesion removal.
How does it work: The instrument ionises the gas particles in the air between its tip and your skin. This creates an electrical arc which touches the very surface of the skin, causing the target tissue to ‘sublimate’ (go directly from solid to gas state), thereby preventing unwanted spread of heat downwards or across the skin. The causes very localised tissue retraction. It is suitable for darker skin tones.
What is the downtime: PLEXR® Plus is an extremely safe treatment. The treatment area will have a series of tiny light brown scabs which will fall off in 5-7 days. You can also expect a small degree of swelling for 1-3 days, particularly in the case of eyelid correction. Special camouflaging cream is part of the recovery kit.
Does it hurt: There can be some discomfort, but almost all patients easily tolerate this treatment. Numbing medication is used prior the procedure, and a cooling gel after the treatment.
