Your Comprehensive Guide to Eyebrow Thread Lifts

Are you dissatisfied with drooping around the brow area? Laxity in the skin is natural as we age – but that doesn’t mean we’re powerless to add a little lift to the brow area. Eyebrow thread lifts are a minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to firm up the area around the eyebrows. Let’s learn a little more about how they work and what to expect from this popular aesthetic procedure.

What is an Eyebrow Thread Lift?

An eyebrow thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes polydioxanone(PDO) threads, which are put under the skin to lift the eyebrow and tighten the surrounding skin. These threads work to stimulate collagen production, providing a lifting effect and making the skin look more youthful and firm. PDO threads are also biocompatible and dissolve naturally, meaning there’s never a need for the threads to be removed. They work their magic and are gradually processed by the body.

How They Work to Lift and Rejuvenate the Brow Area

During an eyebrow thread lift, the threads are strategically placed to target sagging or loose skin, helping to lift the brow and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The threads create tiny injuries that activate the body’s natural healing response, further enhancing the lifting and tightening effects.

The Benefits of Eyebrow Thread Lifts

People love eyebrow thread lifts because they offer a non-surgical alternative to facelifts. There’s minimal downtime and the threads continue to work for you by stimulating the production of new collagen, providing long-term rejuvenation. The results continue to improve over time as collagen production increases, contributing to a more youthful appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Eyebrow thread lifts are ideal if you have mild to moderate drooping of the eyebrows and are looking for a non-invasive solution. Good candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. They should also have a stable skin condition and be free of any active infections or skin conditions in the treatment area. 

What to Expect From the Procedure

During the procedure, you may experience some swelling and bruising, but it should resolve within one to two days. Most people can resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment. Your healthcare provider will give you further instructions on any special skincare products or anti-inflammatory medications to use in the days following your appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are eyebrow thread lifts painful?

While discomfort can vary among individuals, local anesthetic is used to minimize any potential discomfort.

How long do the results last?

The results of an eyebrow thread lift can last for one to three years, providing long-lasting rejuvenation and a lifted appearance.

What is the average cost range for an eyebrow thread lift?

Eyebrow thread lifts cost around $3000 on average, with costs that are higher and lower depending on who you see and where they’re located. Eyebrow thread lifts are typically a much more affordable – and convenient – option compared to surgical procedures like facelifts or blepharoplasty(lifting the eyelids).

Can I get other treatments with a brow lift?

It’s not uncommon for people to get dermal fillers, Botox, or microneedling done around the same time they get an eyebrow thread lift done. Talk to your aesthetic provider about this option and if it’s right for you.
