The smoothing threads eye rejuvenation is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure. Our medspa specialists use a medical-grade needle and the PDO threads to gently lift the sagging skin around the eyes into place. The process starts with a consultation with our head medspa professional – Danielle Oyasu. She examines your face and develops a treatment plan that gives you wrinkle-free, smooth, and lifted eyes.
We start the procedure by applying an eye-friendly numbing agent around and under your eyes, eyebrows, temples, and the glabella region. Although the eye rejuvenation procedure is non-surgical, you may experience a prickling sensation as the needle enters your skin. The numbing agent makes the treatment more comfortable.
Then, we mark the areas around the eyes where lifting is needed. Next, our professional will use the smoothing thread to gently lift the loose skin under and around your eyes, reducing the appearance of folds and wrinkles. The PDO smoothing threads contain microscopic barb-like extensions which hook into the skin and keep your skin in place, in the lifted position.
As the sutures are put in place, tiny wounds are created on the skin around your eyebrows and eyes. To heal these micro-injuries, your skin releases collagen, a protein responsible for the volume and texture of your skin. As collagen production increases, you get a fuller and smoother appearance.
Once the smoothing threads are inserted, they will be tightened, to pull back the skin around your eye region, fully lifting and rejuvenating it. This entire process can take up to 45 minutes. After the treatment is complete, your skin is wiped clean and a soothing lotion may be applied, to reduce the post-procedure inflammation and bruising. These symptoms should clear within a day, leaving behind lifted, smooth, youthful eyes.
