Medical blepharoplasty

Le PLEXR, le lifting des paupières sans chirurgie à Paris. Dr Nelly Gauthier

PLASMA is a new aesthetic medicine technique used to treat sagging eyelids and to rejuvenate the eyes in a non-invasive way, hence why it is called medical blepharoplasty. It offers a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty for those who do not want to undergo a surgical operation.

Indications for medical blepharoplasty

PLEXR, or blepharoplasty plasma, is a new technique used to treat sagging skin of the eyelids.
It can also be used for other purposes:

  • treatment of periorbital and peribuccal wrinkles
  • treatment of skin sagging, neck and ear folds
  • treatment of skin blemishes
  • improvement of acne scars and white scars
  • treatment of certain skin problems

How does the blepharoplasty plasma session take place?

The doctor begins by disinfecting the area to be treated and applying an anaesthetic cream. PLEXR comes in the form of a small portable object resembling a pen.
During the session, the aesthetic doctor will work using a “spot” technique, meaning that he/she will make small impacts by bringing the pen a couple of millimetres from the skin, but without ever touching it. The energy released by the PLEXR causes an immediate reaction on the skin, without bleeding, and a small scab forms on the affected area.
At the end of the session, Dr Gauthier applies ice to cool the eyelids and carefully disinfects the area, taking care to not remove the scabs that have formed.

After PLEXR treatment

The small scabs that formed will remain for 3-5 days. It is important that the patient does not try to remove them, they must fall off naturally.
Once they have fallen off, slight redness will be visible on the treated areas. This may be easily camouflaged with makeup.
The patient must also apply sun protection to the eyelids for a month after treatment, in order to prevent pigmentation problems.

When will the results appear?

The patient can resume his/her activities directly after medical blepharoplasty session. Immediately after the session, the eyes will look less sad and tired, they will be rejuvenated and brighter.
The final results will be optimal after a week. It is possible to renew the session, as long as you wait at least a month between each PLEXR session.

Counterindications for medical blepharoplasty

As a precaution, Dr Gauthier does not treat pregnant women. Likewise, blepharoplasty plasma is not recommended for people who are regularly exposed to UV rays, whether this is part of their professional or everyday life.
