Eye Thread Lift: Everything You Need To Know
Are your eyes showing the signs of ageing? Contemplating getting an eye thread lift? If you’ve been wondering how this treatment works and what it can do, you’ve come to the right place. At Elite Aesthetics, we like to delve deep into our treatments so that you, our clients, can make an informed decision.
Here’s everything you need to know about this exciting, non-surgical anti-ageing treatment…
What Is A Thread Lift?
If you’re new to the thread lift procedure, it may be helpful to know what a thread lift is before we get to how it can help with your eyes.
A thread lift is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that uses medical-grade sutures to create a structure for your skin to rest on. These tiny threads are made from some of the most advanced biomaterials on the market – and they work in two ways to smooth and plump your skin.
The first stage is where the threads provide a ‘lift’ to your skin. They are gently threaded in your chosen area, creating a scaffold for your skin to rest on. This has the effect of smoothing out wrinkles and lines, as well as allowing the repositioning of your skin.
The second stage comes as the sutures dissolve. The material used to make the threads contain substances that stimulate your body’s collagen production. And since collagen is what gives your skin its plumpness, this prolongs your results naturally.
What Is The Eye Thread Lift?
The eye thread lift is the application of a thread lift to enhance or improve your eye area. There are many concerns that the eye thread lift can help with. Some of these are;
Hooded eyes are characterised by a dominant excess of skin on your upper eyelid. Some people find that age contributes to their hooded eyes, as the delicate skin loses elasticity and begins to sag.
If you have hooded eyes and want a more open-eyed look, then the eye thread lift can help you achieve this. Threads are inserted in your brow area to mechanically lift the drooping skin, creating a natural-looking wider eye.
Downturned eyes have their own beauty, but if you prefer an almond shape eye you might think that there’s no way to change it – but you can think again! The eye thread lift can give your downturned eye a more cat-eye or fox-eye shape.
Carefully positioned threads gently reshape your eye, giving you immediate and long-lasting results. You can read more detail about the Fox Eye Thread Lift here.
Facial symmetry has often been cited as the gold standard of beauty, and many people look for ways to balance uneven features.
We believe that beauty comes in all forms, and unique quirks often make a striking impression (think Madonna and her tooth gap or Cindy Crawford and her mole), but if you find your unbalanced features make you feel self-conscious, then the thread lift can quickly adjust the balance for a more symmetrical look.
The eye thread lift can help you address an imbalance in your eye shape. Eyes, particularly when outlined with mascara and eyeliner, can show a difference more easily, so subtle and natural-looking changes can make a big impact.
How Long Does The Eye Thread Lift Last?
The eye thread lift can last between 8-12 months, with the effects of your newly stimulated collagen enhancing the treatment for longer.
Does The Eye Thread Lift Work?
Yes. At Elite Aesthetics, we have treated many patients with all kinds of concerns about eye shape or eye appearance with tremendous success. The eye thread lift allows you to fix your eye concerns without invasive and painful surgery – while getting immediate results.
Are There Any Risks With The Eye Thread Lift?
When carried out by an experienced medical professional, the eye thread lift is an incredibly safe procedure. A talented aesthetic doctor can insert the threads with minimal discomfort and trauma to the area. While you might see some redness in the following hours, this should subside quickly leaving no bruising or marks.
The most important takeaway here is that you must always look for a clinic that has good credentials. Our doctors are some of the most experienced in the UK, with some acting as official trainers to other aesthetic practitioners. When it comes to treatments such as the eye thread lift, always use a reputable clinic.
Can I Remove An Eye Thread Lift?
The threads used in a thread lift or eye thread lift have ‘cogs’ or ‘barbs’ placed along the thread. These ensure that the thread holds its position for the duration and delivers the best lift to your skin. But this also means that removing the thread isn’t possible, as it attaches to the surrounding tissue.
Your personal consultation prior to your treatment will allow you to discuss your ideal outcome in detail. If we feel that an alternative treatment might be more suitable, we will make a recommendation.
If there is any worry about wanting to reverse your treatment, we will look at options where this is possible or discuss whether you are certain that treatment is right for you. Your well-being is paramount.
What Alternative Treatments Are There?
There are many alternative treatments that can be explored if you are looking at your choices. We have listed some below;
Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Anti-wrinkle injections can help to reduce a hooded eye by ‘freezing’ the muscles in the area.
Dermal Fillers – Dermal fillers help to plump and hydrate the skin around your eyes. This can help reduce wrinkles, lines and sunken eyes.
