What exactly is a PDO Brow Thread lift?
A PDO thread eyebrow lift is non surgical brow lift procedure that effectively lifts and contours the eyebrow area.
It is one of the more painless cosmetic procedures as a local anaesthetic is injected prior to treatment.
It can also improve skin texture and correct saggy skin laxity such as hooded lids by opening up the upper eyelid creating a beautiful almond eye shape.
During the treatment, small barbed threads are inserted into the skin using a needle or cannula which helps to provide an immediate lifting effect.
The threads also help to stimulate natural body's collagen production over time, resulting in increased skin elasticity and suppleness.
A PDO thread eyebrow lift, also known as the fox eye lift treatment or cats eye lift treatment, can be beneficial for those who have sagging eyebrows, a heavy brow, drooping brows, or deep wrinkles and fine lines around the outer brow area.
PDO threads are also great for skin tightening and to lift hooded eyes.
The treatment provides an immediate lifting effect while also helping to restore lost facial volume and promote natural collagen production over time.
PDO Threads are especially ideal for people who want a non-surgical alternative to a traditional browlift that involves minimal recovery time and no visible scarring.
This procedure can be used to correct a saggy or drooping eyebrow, reposition the shape of brows, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as restore lost facial volume.
The results of a PDO thread browlift will provide a more youthful facial appearance and generally last between 6-12 months depending on factors such as skin type and lifestyle habits.

What are the Different Types of PDO Browlifts?
There are three types of PDO thread browlifts: barbed threads, smooth threads, and combination lifts.
Barbed thread lifts use small barbs that attach to the tissue and help to immediately lift the eyebrows.
Smooth thread lifts provide a more gradual lifting effect as they stimulate natural collagen production.
Combination lifts utilize both barbed and smooth threads for an immediate and long-lasting lifting effect.
Different looks can be achieved with this procedure such as a lateral brow lift and a fox eye lift treatment that creates a beautiful almond eye shape with a subtle slant upwards.
Is a PDO Browlift Better than a Botox Browlift?
PDO thread lifting is generally considered to be a better option than Botox (botulinum toxin) for brow lifts.
PDO threads provide an instantly visible result due to the barbs that are used and have a longer-lasting effect, typically lasting up to 12 months.
Additionally, as the body naturally breaks down the threads, collagen production is stimulated which helps to maintain an improved appearance in the long term.
In comparison, Botox results tend to last only 3-4 months.
What is the Difference Between a PDO Thread lifts and Botox?
A PDO thread lift and Botox both provide facial rejuvenation, but they differ in terms of their longevity, effectiveness and how they work.
PDO threads are a cosmetic procedure that uses special absorbable sutures to lift sagging skin on the face, neck and brows.
The results are instant, with lasting effects up to months, usually with minimal downtime.
Botox injections use a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes the underlying facial muscles in order to remove wrinkles such as forehead lines, brow lines or crow’s feet and provides a more subtle solution.
Its effects last approximately three to four months.
How Many Threads Do I Need for PDO Brow thread lifts?
The number of threads required for a PDO eyebrow lift can vary depending on the desired results.

It is important to note that optimal results are achieved when combined with good lifestyle habits such as avoiding sun exposure and practicing healthy skincare routines.
How painful is a thread lift?
A PDO brow thread lift is generally considered to be a relatively painless procedure.
Most patients report mild discomfort and no major post-procedure pain.
There may be some slight swelling or you may experience minor bruising in the area immediately following the procedure, but this should subside within a few days.
Local anaesthetic injections are used to minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
Is a PDO Brow Thread lift Better Than a Surgical Brow lift?
A PDO brow thread lift is an excellent option for those who want to achieve softer, lifted brows without undergoing surgery for a surgical brow lift or fox eye surgery.
It is less invasive than a surgical browlift and has fewer complications associated with it.
The results of the thread lift are immediate and natural-looking.
On the other hand, a surgical browlift can produce more dramatic, immediate results but requires anaesthesia and carries the potential risks of infection or scarring.
The best decision ultimately depends on the individual's personal preferences and desired outcome.

The results of the thread lift typically last for several months before needing to be repeated as it provides a lifting and regenerative effect.
