Thread lifts are essentially non-surgical eyebrow lifts that involve introducing dissolvable threads into the face and tugging up the skin, allowing a health practitioner to "raise" different portions of your face and body, including your eyebrows. Threads are not the only way to provide brow lift, as Botox and fillers might provide less significant results
How do threads provide brow lifting?
The dissolvable threads are wrapped in small barbs that anchor into the tissue, pull it up, and fasten it in place. Although they can be inserted anywhere, we have observed a rise in patients seeking them in the temple and brow area in recent years in an attempt to achieve that pulled-back foxy eyes.
Is the eyebrow lift new?
Although thread lifts aren't particularly new, they've only started to gain some widespread recognition, thanks to their (alleged) ability to replicate the cat-eye look of celebrities like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and others. We also use the eyebrow lift with threads to help clients with hooded eyelids who do not wish to perform a surgical blepharoplasty
After meeting the client and discussing his concerns, medical history and available options, we freeze the area using a topical lidocaine cream. The threads are inserted through the hair line, under the skin to reach the eyebrows. The threads then tightened and tucked under the skin.
The client is in her 50s and concerned about the imbalance in her eyebrow and her hooded eyelids. Two threads were inserted to left her right eyebrow and eyelid. The procedure takes 15 min without the need for recovery time
