Non-surgical blepharoplasty is now a very common treatment to counteract the imperfections that, with the passing of age, affect the eyelids and the periocular region.
This method is a valid alternative to the classic surgery. Although they remain two very distinct treatments, the results are excellent and long-lasting, with minimal contraindications. In addition, non-surgical blepharoplasty offers the possibility of avoiding the operating room, cuts, bleeding, stitches and scars.
In this article we will explain what blepharoplasty treatment consists of. Non-surgical blepharoplasty is increasingly in demand. The Plexr® has revolutionized the way to perform this surgery without a scalpel, using a new technology that is well distinguished from the laser. Let's talk about the Plexr ® plasma technology.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty or blephaharocalase is an operation through which the excess skin of the upper and lower eyelids is removed (upper and lower blepharoplasty). Blepharoplasty therefore allows you to correct some eye defects that increase with the passage of time. These are the imperfections that make the face increasingly fatigued and tired: drooping eyelids, bags, dark circles, wrinkles. However, cases of people with wrinkled eyelids and wrinkles around the eyes are not rare, even at a younger age.
In the case of surgical blepharoplasty, an incision is made in the area to be treated (after local or general anaesthesia) and the excess skin is removed; then, the two edges of the eyelid are stitched up by applying sutures. The surgery is generally performed in day hospital.

In addition to the physiological aging process that causes these imperfections, there are also other factors. The most common are: lack of rest, high exposure to sunlight, dehydration of the skin, smoking, family predisposition, incorrect diet. Blepharoplasty is, as mentioned, a particularly effective treatment.
The use of blepharoplasty has grown a lot in recent years. Parallel to it, new alternative techniques to traditional methods have emerged. In fact, since it is a surgery with all that it entails in terms of invasiveness and post-operative course, many people prefer to avoid ending up "under the knife". Technological advances in the field of Aesthetic Medicine allow today to carry out non-surgical blepharoplasty treatment in a minimally invasive way and without resorting to surgery, with however effective results and reduced recovery times compared to traditional methods.

Rejuvenating the gaze, improving its general tone without surgery is now possible. Non-surgical blepharoplasty is in fact a very common technique today through which excess skin on the eyelids is removed. Furthermore, always through this type of intervention it is possible to eliminate or significantly reduce wrinkles around the eyes and bags. All without scalpel incisions, stitches and scars.
The possibility of resorting to this type of treatment is always subject to the evaluation of the doctor. After carefully evaluating all the characteristics of the patient - in particular the severity of the imperfections in the periocular area - the doctor will explain to the patient how the treatment is carried out and the results that can be obtained.
The advantages of non-surgical blepharoplasty with Plasma Plexr
Plexr® is the medical device with international patent and registered trademark produced by GMV. He introduced in the field of aesthetic medicine - the first scientifically proven in the world - the treatment of non-surgical blepharoplasty using the action mechanism of plasma. For more than 10 years on the market and distributed in over 60 countries, today Plexr® can boast millions of non-surgical blepharoplasty performed with satisfaction by Italian and foreign doctors.
The success of the device for non-surgical blepharoplasty is mainly due to the following aspects:
No incision or bleeding during treatment
Time of execution of the treatment and recovery immediately after the treatment itself is quick compared to traditional methods
No stitches or scars
General anaesthesia is not used: depending on the sensitivity of the patient, an anaesthetic cream may be applied a few minutes before the operation
It is independent of the patient's skin type: therefore, it can be made on all photo types
How does the non-surgical blepharoplasty treatment take place with the Plexr®?
After having thoroughly disinfected the patient's skin, the doctor approaches the Plexr® handpiece to the area to be treated and activates it, “drawing” small points or “spots” on the entire region affected by the treatment. The plasma generated through the handpiece never comes into direct contact with the skin. It has an instant action: the small “spots” performed on the skin remove excess tissue and generate an immediate elastic retraction effect on the skin. The discomfort associated with the treatment is subjective, but as mentioned in the case of excessive sensitivity of the patient, the doctor can apply an anaesthetic cream before the procedure.
Non-surgical blepharoplasty: treatment without cuts
Based on the characteristics of the patient, the type of treatment required and the experience of the doctor, the treatment can be completed in one or more sessions (maximum 4). However, each session lasts a few minutes and at the end of the treatment it is possible to resume your activities immediately.
Non-surgical blepharos: how long does the effect last?
As with all medical treatments, to obtain good results it is essential to follow the instructions provided by the doctor. This is especially true for post-treatment: after the procedure, in fact, small crusts will form which will fall off spontaneously after a few days. Other small contraindications that can be solved within a few days are edema and redness.
The results of a non-surgical blepharoplasty performed with Plexr® by doctors appropriately trained in the use of the device are generally excellent and long-lasting. The gaze of those who undergo the treatment takes on an overall fresher and younger tone again. The results last an average of 12 months - even if they vary from subject to subject - and the treatment is repeatable.
This surgery can also be performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation treatments.
