Eyebrow lift with PDO threads is a non-surgical cosmetic technique that uses PDO threads to lift and tighten the brows and areas above the eyes to eliminate wrinkles, brow lines and fix sagging or drooping brows.
Our skin loses collagen as we age, resulting in volume loss and firmness loss. Muscle tone and mass begin to decline. The top part of the face, including the brows and the forehead, starts to lose structural support and falls. The brows droop and sag.
The ageing impact of the skin causes it not to spring back as quickly as it used to when you were considerably younger. As your face tissues droop, you may see your brows falling and lose their natural arch. Even if you're not sad or furious, your brows start to form a sad or angry expression. Your brows start to migrate closer to your eyes, and you lose your usual facial look.
PDO thread brow lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to a standard surgical brow lift. It gives you a more youthful appearance without leaving scars and with little downtime. Moreover, brow lift has a lifting and regenerating effect. When the threads are introduced and raised into the face skin, they produce an instant lifting effect. The lifting action creates greater space between the brows. It also promotes collagen synthesis, which aids in the regeneration of the skin over time by improving firmness, volume, and making the skin seem younger.
Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?
Candidates with the following characteristics are ideal candidates for a brow lift:
Facial expressions that are tired or furious
Horizontal striations over the brow
Furrows between the brows are deep.
Heavy upper lids
Candidates should have reasonable expectations and have good skin flexibility.
How is a brow lift using PDO threads performed?
You will be asked to lie on your back with your head up during the process. To avoid pain and suffering, your cosmetic dermatologist will mark the region to be treated and administer an anesthetic to the treatment area. Next, they will use a sharp or blunt tip cannula or needles to implant the PDO threads into the layers of skin surrounding the brows. The threads are raised once they have been introduced and fixed in the skin layers to elevate the brow and tighten the skin. The needles or cannulas are withdrawn, and any extra threads are severed.
Recovery after eyebrows lift
Minor bruising, swelling, and discomfort are common after the surgery and usually disappear within a few days. You can use ice to decrease swelling and bruising.
Healing time is usually about two weeks. Due to thread attachment, you may see rippling on the corner of your brow. Do not be concerned; it will settle in easily within 1-2 weeks.
For the next 24 hours, avoid using soap and water. To avoid infection, avoid wearing make-up for 1-2 days.
Apply no pressure to the treated region for at least 2-3 weeks to allow good adhesion. Do not indulge in any vigorous activities or workouts for at least 2-3 weeks. For one month, avoid saunas, hot yoga, and high temperatures.
For the next two months, avoid any laser treatments on the treated region since the laser disintegrated the threads faster than they should have. Follow your cosmetic practitioner's instructions and any follow-up consultations.
How long does the effect of PDO thread brow lift last?
PDO threads can be dissolved over time. They usually disappear after 3-6 months by simple hydrolysis. Even after the threads have dissolved, they continue to lift and regenerate the skin. The procedure's results can last anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on your skin laxity and the cosmetic dermatologist's competence.
The cost of a PDO thread lift for the brows
The cost of a brow PDO thread lift varies based on the location, scope of the operation, and surgeon competence. The cost of a brow PDO thread lift ranges between $1,500 and $4,500.
The PDO thread lift of the brow is a cosmetic treatment that is not covered by insurance. You will be responsible for the procedure's costs.
Complications and adverse effects are possible after eyebrows lift
The PDO thread lift of the brow is one of the most painless and safe cosmetic treatments available today. It is a minimally invasive procedure with low risks, especially when performed by a highly trained aesthetic professional. Though it is a low-risk surgery, problems and adverse effects are possible as with any other cosmetic procedure. These are some examples:
Bruising, swelling, and pain
Minor aches and pains
Hematomas are uncommon.
There have been a few examples of severe face nerve injury.
Allergic responses to the topical lidocaine
Asymmetry of the face
Thread protrusion, extrusion, and migration
Dissatisfaction among patients after eyebrows lift
How frequently can you have your brows lifted using PDO threads?
Though eyebrow PDO thread lift is a safe technique, it is dangerous to repeat the operation regularly. The optimal amount of times you can get your brows PDO thread lifted is twice a year.
How do you sleep after having your brows lifted with PDO threads?
For the first few weeks following a brow PDO thread lift, it is suggested that you sleep on your back with your head looking up. Make cautious not to rub the treated area against your bed or pillow. Sleep with your head up and try not to turn over on the treated regions.
