Correct your baggy eyelids for an open eye, smooth lid appearance
As we age, our eyelids may become droopy or baggy. This can cause a tired or older appearance and they may even droop low enough to impair your vision.
Dr Miguel Montero is achieving incredible results with Plexr non-surgical blepharoplasty – a safe, non-invasive, and effective alternative to surgery
Until now, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) has been the only method to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin. You can now choose Plexr treatment at Discover Laser – a non-surgical blepharoplasty which is non-invasive, very low risk, has minimal side effects and far less downtime.
Plexr® treatment uses plasma energy to vaporise pin-prick size areas of excess skin causing it to shrink.
Energy is delivered only on the superficial skin cells, without affecting deeper tissues, enabling you to move your eyelid immediately after treatment.
The result is the reduction of some of the excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid, as well as the shrinking of the excess skin in the external region around the eye.
Depending on the nature and extent of the excess skin you may need up to 3 treatments, 6 to 8 weeks apart. The final results will be seen some months later.
The benefits are also the improvement of the expression lines at the corner of the eye and the cheekbone (crow’s feet).
A typical session will last no more than 30 minutes. and the tiny point-like crusts will fall off after 3 to 7 days. These crusts can be covered with specialist liquid foundation (Oxigenetics), allowing you to continue with your daily routine.
Plexr – advantages vs surgery
Women and men of all skin types and colours can have Plexr treatment. You do need to be over 18 years old.
Your Plexr procedure will typically take about 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. Topical anaesthetic is applied 20-30 minutes prior to treatment so allow an hour in total.
You will feel a warm-hot sensation from each energy pulse. The anaesthetic applied reduces any sensation and makes the treatment quite tolerable. You’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling to your practitioner, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
Your eyelids will swell and be red after treatment. You will leave the clinic with a breathable camouflage make up on the treated area which will help the healing process, which you will use daily after treatment for approximately 7 days.
The marks from each pulse of energy will be visible (as tiny dark dots) and will start to form scabs which together with the swelling will last for approximately 5 -7 days. There is no pain or discomfort and once the scabs have fallen off your skin will be smooth and flat but still pink. The colour will subside in the days/weeks that follow.
