How does thread brow lift work

Brow lift using PDO threads is a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, designed to treat mild-to-moderate ptosis or drooping of the brows. The technique is a no surgical alternative to traditional surgical brow lift, it can deliver excellent aesthetic results in achieving more youthful facial appearance without leaving scars. Barbed PDO threads are used to lift and tighten the upper part of the face, eliminate wrinkles, forehead lines and correct position of the eyebrows. The procedure stimulates natural collagen production and cellular renewal, improving your skin’s density and elasticity.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Thread Brow Lift?

Changes of eyebrow position are one of the first signs of aging. Your skin becomes less elastic and loses volume over time, while your face muscles simultaneously lose tone and firmness. Low eyebrows can make the eyes look heavy and even create a sad appearance. Higher brows, on the other hand, open up your eyes and instantly give you a fresher, younger and even more attractive look. By repositioning the tissues involved in the brow drooping, we achieve more youthful, rested and refreshed appearance. 

PDO thread brow lift is particularly recommended to people with:

  • Heavy eyebrows
  • Sad, tired or angry facial appearance
  • Lines and wrinkles across the forehead and between the eyebrows
  • Heavy upper eyelids (however, significant eyelid ptosis, might require plastic surgery)
  • Fear of traditional plastic surgeries

Treatment plan

This simple and absolutely safe technique is performed under local anesthesia We require neurotoxin injections (Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) two weeks prior to brow lift procedures to relax the frontalis muscle and allow PDO threads to heal without complications.

During your neurotoxin appointment, you will discuss with Dr Natalya your goals and expectations from upcoming PDO brow lift procedure.

PDO thread brow lift treatment is carried out by our licensed naturopathic physician. It starts with injection of local anesthesia. Next, Dr. Natalya will create small opening in your skin through which PDO threads will be inserted. Placed barbed threads are tightened which instantly lifts and repositions sagging skin. Since we do not use general anesthesia or any other sedating medications, you will be able to drive home after the procedure.

PDO threads are biodegradable sutures which will dissolve over time, while continuously stimulating collagen production, tightening and strengthening your skin for many months after the procedure.

Follow-up care

When it comes to side effects, you will likely have a sore forehead for a few days, and you might experience some slight bruising and minor swelling, but they will soon fade away. The tightening and lifting effect of PDO threads will last up to 2 years after the procedure. To ensure the best results, there are several things you must avoid after a PDO thread lift. These include: sleeping on your stomach or side, applying makeup, drinking alcohol, making extreme facial expressions, and receiving facials and facial massages.


PDO thread brow lift treatment does not possess significant health risks, such as surgery. Typical side effects include swelling, tenderness and bruising in the treatment area. The highest risk of any injectable cosmetic procedure is the risk of infection, which can be avoided in the hands of licensed medical professional, trained in PDO threads lifts.

However, there are certain contraindications, which should be discussed with your doctor. PDO threads are not suitable for pregnant or nursing women. Patients with excessive sagging skin or significant loss of fatty tissue in the face, infections or acute inflammations in the treatment areas, autoimmune disease or recent history of chemotherapy or any other immunosuppressive therapy, should also avoid PDO thread brow lift. This procedure are not suitable for young patients. Patients over age of 45 will benefit most from PDO brow lift.

There are certain simple rules we suggest you to follow before PDO brow lift in order to get the best out of your treatment and minimize the risk of complications.

  • Smoking and all kinds of alcohol must be avoided for at least one week before the treatment as they can dehydrate the skin, increase chance for bleeding and bruising and even affect anesthesia.
  • Omega fish oils, vitamin E, chili pepper, ginseng, garlic should be excluded from your diet or supplementation at least two days in advance.
  • NSAIDs medications such as Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, or ibuprofen must be avoided for a week prior to you treatment, as these medications will increase chances for bleeding, bruising and formation of hematoma. 
  • It is important to refrain from high-intensity exercises, sauna or steam room for at least 24 hours prior to your procedure.
