Eyes and Brow

How is a Fox Eye thread lift performed?

The procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment as no incisions are required. The Fox Eye Thread-lift works by pulling up the outer brow using threads. The threads are placed under the skin via needles. These threads have either cones or barbs to hold the skin positioned once they are in place.

A local anesthetic or numbing cream can be applied prior to this. The procedure takes around 30 minutes, depending on the number of threads required. Usually, recovery time is minimal. You may notice some swelling and some bruising to the treated areas.

For longer lasting results or difficult brows a heavier and longer thread can be used.

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.  Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified practitioner.

Who is the best candidate for a ‘Fox Eye’ procedure?

Thread lift procedures are not for everyone, an ideal candidate for the ‘Fox Eye’ thread lift are individuals who have a deep set and low, medial, and high arched lateral brow. Additionally, those with a higher degree of collagen within their skin and minimal fat in the eye socket, are good candidates for this procedure. Results do vary depending on muscle and skin condition and the presence of Wrinkle Relaxer.

How much does a Fox Eye thread lift in Perth cost?

The price of thread lift procedure varies at Absolute Cosmetic, starting from $2,200 with our doctor. The longer, heavier threads start from $3,300. If a patient would like to be sedated for the procedure this will require an additional cost of $1,390.

What is The Mint Fine Thread?

The Mint Fine Threads made of a non-allergenic compound. On each suture, there are two series of helical 360-degree barbs. These barbs face in the opposite direction and are called Bidirectional. This gives better hold and tension when holding the skin on the face. The barbs are made of a Polydioxanone.

The Mint Easy Threads are a longer more robust thread.

These products are compatible with the human body.

Is a Fox Eye thread lift painful?

While thread lift cosmetic procedures are considered non-surgical, it’s important to note that, like other treatments, they may still involve some level of discomfort. There may still be mild soreness and swelling which is manageable depending on an individual’s pain tolerance. Over-the-counter pain reliever may help lessen the discomfort, but it is recommended to consult your doctor first. Wrinkle Relaxer reduces discomfort and increases duration of the treatment.

What are the risks involved?

As with any invasive procedure, potential risks and complications are involved. Mild redness, swelling, bruising, pain, and tenderness can be expected at the site of the threads, which if occur, usually subside over a few days.

Puckering can occur immediately at the site of the thread or shortly following treatment, which generally resolves over a few days to weeks. Infection and other procedure complications are uncommon.

It is important you seek treatment with a highly experienced practitioner, with great knowledge of the anatomy.

What results can you expect?

Immediate results can be seen once the threads have been inserted, however, the results will improve over the next 3-6 months. They are expected to last 12 months.

Immediately after the lifting and placements, there will be a series of needle marks on each side of the face. These will remain visible for the rest of the day, although most people are able to cover them up the next day with make-up. Excess pulling will also be noted.

You may experience some bruising and swelling around the sutures, although this tends to be minor and short-lived. For up to a week after the procedure, it may feel tender around the sutures.

How can I enhance my results?

There are times when the doctor may suggest augmenting your fox eye thread-lift with a touch of Dermal Filler and or Wrinkle Relaxer. This can improve the longevity of results, although this will be determined based on each patient’s individual needs and is not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach.

What happens after the Fox Eye Thread procedure?

You will need to ice the area, but make sure the cold packs are not placed directly on the skin. Take Panadol 2-4 hourly for the next 2-hours. Do not apply makeup for 24-hours.

Ensure you sleep with an extra pillow on at least a 30-degree angle for 3-5 nights. Be very gentle in washing your face.

For the first 2-weeks, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds, contact sports, dentists, saunas and over-expression. Avoid significant massaging of your face for 4-weeks.

Important: If you have any concerns don’t hesitate to contact your doctor.
