Blepharoplasty without surgery : Medical treatment at the Paris clinic

1 (4)

Blepharoplasty involves removing the excess skin around the eyelid.
If previously surgery was the only solution, we can now avoid this thanks to lasers and plexr.
Three techniques of cosmetic medicine make it possible to lift the upper eyelid: the laser, the plexer and the mesothreads.

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS

2 (4)

Laser

This works through dermal stimulation: the skin of the eyelids is the thinnest of all (it’s about 0.5mm thick) and is subject to numerous constraints.
With time, the skin becomes thinner, leading to the slackening of the eyelids.
Laser treatment allows new, thicker collagen to form.

Session

An optional aesthetic cream can be applied before the treatment, as the treatment itself is completely painless.
Before starting, the wrinkles and folds to be treated are manually identified.

Thus, the entire upper eyelid is treated with several sweeps of the laser.
No recovery time is needed afterwards, nor are there any precautions to take. A very mild rash or erythema might last for a maximum of one day afterwards.
Sun block should be worn for one month afterwards.
The treatment requires 3-4 sessions with a month’s interval in between.

Advantages of laser vs plexr treatment :

– Painless treatment, no anaesthetic necessary.
– No recovery time or knock-on effects.
– The entire eyelid can be treated by dermal stimulation.

Plexr

The instrument uses plasma (ionized air). The mechanism of action is the sublimation of corneocytes (superficial cells of the epidermis) without bleeding.

The tissues are simply touched. A very high temperature is reached at the tip without diffusion of heat to the surrounding and underlying tissues.
The patient applies anesthetic cream (EMLA) 30 minutes before the session.
This treatment uses the SPOT method: that is, microscopic points (500 micron) arranged in a triangle or zig-zag on the identified treatment zones in order to achieve a 360° lift.

For 5-7 days the treated area is swollen.
The treatment requires 3-4 sessions with a month’s interval in between.

Mesothreads

The placement of polydioxanone mesothreads in the skin of the upper eyelid determines its traction and an opening of the look. The pose is done under local anesthesia (application of anesthetic cream) in the clinic. A dozen threads are used for each eyelid. The result is visible in two weeks and lasts one year and a half. Two to three sessions at two-month intervals are usually performed. Bruises and edema are the only side effects.
