Our skin starts to lose collagen as we age, which causes it to become less firm and volumeless. Tone and mass are lost in the muscles. The forehead and eyebrows, which make up the upper part of the face, start to droop and lose structural support. The eyebrows start to droop and sag.
The aging process of the skin prevents it from plumping up as it did in your younger years. Your eyebrows may start to droop and lose their natural arch as your facial tissues start to sag. Even when you’re not unhappy or furious, your eyebrows start to make you look that way. You start to look less like yourself normally, and your eyebrows start to come in considerably closer to your eyes. PDO threads are used in a non-surgical cosmetic technique called an eyebrow lift to tighten and elevate the eyebrows as well as the area of the face above the eyes. This helps to eliminate wrinkles and brow lines and cure drooping or sagging eyebrows.
PDO thread brow lifts are a minimally invasive, non-surgical substitute for typical surgical brow lifts. It gives the face a more youthful appearance with little recovery time and no scarring. PDO thread eyebrow lifts have a lifting and rejuvenating effect. The threads immediately produce a lifting effect once they are lifted and put into the facial skin. The elevating effect creates greater space between the eyebrows. Additionally, it encourages the synthesis of collagen, which with time improves the firmness, volume, and youthful appearance of the skin.
Who Are the Ideal Candidates for an Eyebrow Lift Procedure with PDO Threads?
Those with specific facial features are usually the best candidates for an eyebrow lift. These people frequently have drooping eyebrows, which might give the impression that they are always exhausted or furious. Deep creases between the brows, noticeable horizontal lines across the forehead, and voluminous upper lids are typical signs that an eyebrow lift operation is warranted.
Additionally, patients should have good skin laxity, which will enable the eyebrows to be repositioned and reshaped effectively. This feature makes the outcomes look smoother and more realistic. The existence of reasonable expectations for the procedure’s results is equally important.
Those considering an eyebrow lift should be aware that although this operation can greatly improve the appearance of the face, it’s crucial to go into it fully aware of the possible outcomes. A consultation with a board-certified PLASTIC surgeon can assist in determining eligibility by evaluating specific facial traits and going over anticipated outcomes. In the end, people who want to address particular facial issues and attain a more refreshed and harmonious appearance around the brow area are the best candidates for an eyebrow lift.
How Is the PDO Thread Eyebrow Lift Procedure Performed?
During an eyebrow lift procedure using PDO (Polydioxanone) threads, you’ll recline on your back with your head facing upwards. To ensure comfort, the PLASTIC SURGEON marks the treatment area and applies an anesthetic to mitigate pain or discomfort. The next step involves inserting PDO threads into the layers of skin surrounding the eyebrows, accomplished using sharp or blunt-tipped cannulas or needles.
Once the threads are strategically placed and anchored within the skin layers, they’re gently manipulated to elevate the eyebrows and firm up the skin. Following this, the needles or cannulas are carefully withdrawn, and any excess threads are trimmed away. The inserted PDO threads initiate a natural healing response within the skin, promoting collagen production and gradual skin tightening. This minimally invasive technique harnesses the supportive strength of PDO threads to create a subtle yet noticeable lift, rejuvenating the eyebrow area. The procedure is typically swift and requires minimal downtime, allowing individuals to resume their routine activities shortly after.
What Can I Expect After Undergoing PDO Thread Eyebrow Lift Treatment?
It is typical to have some swelling, pain, and bruising following the treatment; these side effects usually go away in a few days. To lessen the bruising and swelling, you can apply ice.
The healing process typically takes ONE TO TWO weeks. The threaded attachment may cause rippling at the corner of your brow. This is nothing to worry about; after a week or two, it will become natural.
SHOWERING IS OK AS LONG AS ONE DOESN’T APPLY PRESSURE TO THE THREADED AREAS. To prevent infection, wait one to two days before applying makeup.
For two to three weeks, avoid applying any pressure to the treated region to facilitate the appropriate attachment process. For two to three weeks, avoid exercising or doing anything physically demanding. For a month, stay away from saunas, hot yoga, and extremely high or low temperatures.
Since lasers disintegrate threads far more quickly than they should, the treated area should not receive any laser treatments for two months.
Observe the advice of your cosmetic dermatologist and schedule any necessary follow-up visits.
How Long Do PDO Thread Eyebrow Lift Results Last?
The results of an eyebrow lift using PDO threads are influenced by the gradual dissolution of the threads, typically occurring through natural hydrolysis within 3-6 months. Despite dissolution, these threads continue to exert a lifting and regenerative impact on the skin. The lasting effect of the procedure spans approximately 1-3 years, contingent upon individual skin laxity variations and the proficiency of the cosmetic dermatologist.
While the immediate lifting achieved by PDO threads diminishes over time, the stimulated collagen production and tissue regeneration contribute to sustained improvements in skin firmness and texture. Regular evaluations with your PLASTIC SURGEON can help monitor and optimize the longevity of the eyebrow lift results.
