Eyebrow lifting with PDO Threads
What is Fox Eye Brows?
Fox Eye Brows is the technique We’ve been using to pull back brows (using Mint PDO threads ). Using PDO threads to lift the patient's eyebrows also uplifts the patient's eyes to give an elevated effect.
What is the Fox Eyes Lift?
This treatment is an innovative technique that uses dissolvable sutures to lift and elongate the eye to create a more almond shape whilst simultaneously lifting the brow tail to create a more attractive effect with a more open upper eyelid.
What are the different techniques used to achieve this at You & I Medical Spa?
Nurse Practitioner Leonard offers different PDO techniques to achieve this look. All these techniques are unique to our office and have been developed and perfected by NP Leonard E. All these treatments can be done using local anesthetic in under one hour with minimal downtime:
PDO Thread lifts – this is the most commonly used technique where lifting dissolvable sutures are inserted under the skin to create a lift lasting 6-12 months. This technique is popular as it’s the most cost-effective and offers a great option for those wanting to build up the effect of the lift over time.
Is the treatment painful?
All of the techniques used by Nurse Practitioner Leonard are relatively painless as he will give you an effective and long-lasting local anesthetic injection. The Anesthetic injections will feel like a pinprick. You may experience some very mild headaches after the treatment which will respond well to over the counter pain killers and are short-lived in nature.
Will I have a scar?
The beauty of this treatment is that it’s free of incisions. The treatment is done through needle entry points with a cannula and is, therefore, has a negligible risk of scarring compared to surgery where the skin is cut.
What is the downtime? Will the skin folds be permanent?
Thread lifts will heal within 7-10 days as the swelling and bruising settle down. There may be some skin folds in the hairline which will relax after 2-3 weeks.
What are the complications with thread lift?
The treatment is relatively safe, with minor complications such as swelling and bruising however there is a slightly increased risk of infection with PDO threads compared to other treatments, there is a small risk of nerve damage and negligible risk of scarring. During your appointment, nurse practitioner Leonard will explain the measures you must take to avoid this during your appointment.
Will my skin be more “saggy” once the threads dissolve?
This is not the case, the skin surrounding the PDO thread will be stimulated to create more collagen which will make the skin firmer and less prone to “sagging” or wrinkles.
What do I have to avoid before and after the treatment?
As with all aesthetics treatments, consumption of alcohol should be avoided for 12 hours before and after treatment, the same is said for smoking but for 6 hours. Specific to thread lifts, you should avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks after the treatment. Some clients may be advised to go on a liquid diet for 3 -5 after the treatment. Depending on your medical conditions some clients who are diabetic or more prone to infection should take antibiotics for a short period after the treatment.
Other post-treatment precautions will depend on which area is treated and will be discussed with you in-depth during your clinic appointment with Leonard
Who can’t have the treatment?
This treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, those who are unable to avoid strenuous exercise for a period of two weeks such as athletes or those working in the fitness industry. Those with obesity are discouraged from having this treatment.
