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.
Our Doctors are 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, an average of 2-4 treatments are needed, 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).
Plexr – advantages vs surgery
If you are affected by excess skin on the eyelids, giving you a tired and “aged” look, you may wish to avoid surgery for fear of being put under anaesthetic or the possible complications associated with an invasive procedure.
Non-surgical blepharoplasty, as the name suggests, does not use a scalpel or laser to remove the excess skin. It is performed without incision, without removing excess skin, without removing fat and without altering the muscles in the eyelids. It is therefore very low risk, has minimal side effects and far less downtime.
During your Plexr treatment you will only have a topical anaesthetic applied to the skin, and are able to open and close your eyes. Dr Montero will be able to clearly see which folds of skin are still to be treated – this maximises the effectiveness of treatment.
- Choice of no injectable anaesthetic
- No cutting of skin
- No stitches required
- Very low risk
- No risk of blindness
- Minimal side effects
- Far less downtime
- Quick & easy procedure
- No thinning of skin
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 45 minutes prior to treatment so allow an hour and 15 minutes 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. This will help the healing process, when used daily 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.

In truth I was somewhat sceptical but decided to give it a go and am so pleased that I did. The procedure itself was almost painless and the scabbing took a couple of weeks to heal but the results after one treatment was, and twelve months on, is amazing!
