WHAT IS THE FOX EYE THREAD LIFT?
The Fox Eye Thread-lift is a procedure which uses dissolvable threads to lift and elongate the eye to create a more almond shape, whilst simultaneously lifting the brow tail. This creates a Bella Hadid-like look with a more open upper eyelid.
HOW DOES THE FOX EYE THREAD LIFT WORK?
The Fox Eye Thread-lift works by pulling up of the outer brow by the use of PDO threads. These threads have either cog or barbs to hold the skin positioned once they are in place.
HOW IS THE FOX EYE THREAD LIFT PERFORMED?
The Fox Eye Thread-lift is a relatively quick procedure performed in around 20-30mins.
You will first be marked out to ensure symmetry of result. Local anaesthetic is then provided to the treatment area to improve the comfort of the procedure. Threads are then expertly placed to complete the procedure.
CAN THE FOX EYE LIFT NOT BE ACHIEVED WITH ANTI-WRINKLE (BOTOX) INJECTIONS?
No. The lift provided by anti-wrinkle (botox) injections cannot reliably ever produce these results as the muscles do not lift or pull the eye lid up and out in the same way at all.
CAN THE FOX EYE LIFT BE DONE WITH FILLER?
No. Not at all.
Although, there are times when I may suggest enhancing and complimenting your fox eye thread-lift with a touch of dermal filler as this can improve the longevity of results.
IS THE FOX EYE THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE SAFE?
Yes! This is a safe procedure using dissolving biocompatible surgical threads. These threads are composed of the same types of material used in a general operation. The most common risks of the Fox Eye Thread-lift includes swelling and bruising that are short lived.
This will be discussed during your consultation as they relate to you.
WILL I HAVE A SCAR?
No - not at all.
The very nature of this procedure means that there are no incisions and no scars. Scar tissue forms when the skin is damaged and it cannot repair itself properly. Nothing nothing like occurs with the procedure so any incision marks will heal beautifully within around 7-10 days.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
You will be provided with a local anaesthetic injection, which stings but is short lived. After this, the procedure is relatively painless. You will just feel pressure, or pushing or pulling. It can feel a little strange, but is perfectly normal.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
The Fox Eye Thread lift will heal in around 7-10 days as swelling and bruising settles and subsides.
Most of my clients experience very little in the way of bruising or swelling. It all comes down to the individual however.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
PDO threads last between 6-12 months depending on your lifestyle and activity level. The threads tend to dissolve in around 3-4 months, but the effects last much longer than this.
For longer lasting results a repeat procedure is advisable.
WILL MY SKIN BE MORE SAGGY AFTER THE THREADS DISSOLVE?
No. In fact, your skin will likely be more firm, as threads stimulate collagen which is what makes the skin less prone to sagging or wrinkles!
