An eye thread lift is a safe and easy treatment to get rid of eye bags and droopy eyelids caused by ageing and other factors. Eye thread lifts and its benefits are gaining popularity quickly as it takes only 30 mins to do the procedure.
Why do people get eye thread lifts?
Wrinkles and sagging skin near the eye area are a result of natural degradation from aging. Most often, our muscles and skin are the most affected parts. The muscles weaken and the skin loses collagen and elasticity.
Because the skin near the eye is extremely thin, as the muscles in this area decrease in strength from age, noticeable drooping occurs. The fix is to surgically remove this excess skin to rejuvenate or improve the health of the skin.
Many years ago, there was a need for people to undergo a surgical facelift to be able to enjoy younger-looking skin. Thankfully, there are now non-invasive options available that are safer, more affordable, and effective in restoring a youthful appearance to the eye and eyebrow area.
What is a thread lift?
It is a cosmetic procedure that lifts and sculpts the shape of your face or breasts. It uses temporary, medical-grade suture material to stitch up your skin so that it’s drawn taut.
Thread lifts in Melbourne have been around since the 1990s, but have only grown popular these past few years. Thanks to these innovations in the material used for thread lifts, making it a popular choice for people wanting to tighten their skin.
Who is a good candidate?
The typical candidate for a thread lift is in their late 30s to early 50s. Anyone who is generally in good health and is just starting to notice the signs of aging may benefit the most from this procedure.
However, people with certain medical conditions who are not allowed to have surgical facelift and make general anesthesia risky may consider a thread lift as a safer alternative.
It’s always best to ask your doctor for advice to know whether or not you are qualified for the eye thread lift, or any cosmetic procedure for that matter.
How does It work?
The procedure starts with a small injection of anesthesia to the outer corner of the eye area, which makes the whole process almost painless.
Threads are inserted through a cannula in the under-eye area, which tightens the excess skin almost immediately. Most patients can go back to their schedule almost immediately; some will opt for a Friday evening appointment with their aesthetics doctor to rest in for the weekend.
The thread lift procedure works in two ways.
The first is fairly straightforward. Using thin dissolvable sutures underneath your skin, your doctor is able to pull your skin tight around your forehead, neck, or torso.
These grab on to your skin and make sure that the thread grips your underlying tissue and muscles as the thread is pulled tight.
Once a barbed thread is inserted, your body’s healing response is triggered. Even though you’re not injured by the threads under your skin, your body detects a suture material and stimulates collagen production in the affected area. Collagen can fill gaps in sagging skin and restore more youthful elasticity to your face.
As we age, many of us are afflicted with droopy eyes lids, dark eye circles, and eye bags. Eye bags and dark eye circles add many years to our face, therefore causing aesthetic problems.
Droopy eyes lids and eye bags result from a wide variety of factors. For example, lifestyle and habits such as rubbing the eyes too hard, or spending too much time in front of a computer screen. Genetics and medications also play a vital role in causing these things.
Though surgical options have long been available to remove eye bags or to treat drooping eyelids, these are often avoided due to its high cost. Another disadvantage of having the surgical facelift is when the results turn out to be unnatural and it cannot be reversed.
Getting an eye thread lift will cost you less than when you would choose the more traditional, surgical facelift. With minimal to zero downtime, you can even go back to work right after the procedure, thus the term “lunchtime lift”.
