Eyebrow lift using PDO threads is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to the traditional surgical brow lift. It provides a more youthful facial appearance without leaving scars and with minimal downtime.

Eyebrow lift with PDO threads provides a lifting and regenerative effect. When the threads are inserted into the facial skin and lifted, they provide an immediate lifting effect. The lifting effect allows for more eye-to-brow space.  It also stimulates the production of collagen which helps to regenerate the skin over time by increasing firmness, volume, and making the skin look younger.

How is eyebrow lift with PDO threads done?

Your cosmetic dermatologist will then mark the area to be treated and apply anesthetic on the treatment area to prevent pain and discomfort. He or she will then insert the PDO threads into the layers of skin around the eyebrows with a sharp or blunt tip cannula or needles. After the threads are inserted and anchored in the skin layers, they are lifted to lift the eyebrow and tighten the skin. The needles or cannula are removed and any excess threads are cut off.
