PDO threads are one of the most innovative non-surgical treatments available on the market today. Delivering results that could only previously be applied with surgery or multiple dermal fillers.
The fox eye lift is designed to lift the outer corners of your eyes and the tail of your eyebrow, giving the eye a very desirable shape, and reducing sagging related to age. The treatment is popular with several high-profile celebrities because of the beautiful eye shape that can be created.
The treatment is quite simple – using dissolvable suture threads, the outer brow and eye corner is pulled to lift any sagging of the upper eyelid. The amount of lift given is completely customisable, depending on the severity of sagging and the result you want to achieve.
PDO threads are dissolvable stitches meaning the effect you will get at first is not permanent. The lift will last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on your lifestyle and activity. However, this doesn’t mean you will lose all results – new collagen formed whilst the stiches were in place will stay in place. the treatment can be repeated though for fresh results.
The treatment is very safe but as with any type of treatment, there are small risks. In this case, infection is a small risk, but you will be given advice on how to avoid this with your aftercare advice.
A local anaesthetic is administered to the treatment area so you won’t feel the treatment – however, you will feel a small sting from the anaesthetic.
It is advisable to have a day off but you should be fine to return to work the day after treatment. You may have some swelling and bruising which will settle after 7-10 days and shouldn’t be too visible. You will also have small ‘folds’ in the hairline where the stitches are – these will settle after a couple of weeks and are not really visible.
