  • The brow lift procedure with dermal threads implements threads under the skin to pull excess skin and create a more youthful appearance.
  • Brow lift cosmetic procedures can benefit the entire area, also acting as a forehead lift to the hairline in some circumstances.

Take a look at what a brow lift can offer, and discover what DermacareHR can do for you.

What Is an Eyebrow Lift?

An eyebrow lift or direct brow lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce wrinkles around the brow, upper eyelid, and forehead area to create a more youthful appearance. While it can be a surgical procedure, there are non-surgical alternatives such as Botox injections and dermal threads.

What Are Dermal Threads?

Dermal threads are medical-grade sutures that are inserted into the skin as a brow lift technique. Once inserted, they are pulled to tighten the skin in the affected area. Additionally, some dermal sutures are barbed to pull up your skin from the inside. Among the types of brow lifts, dermal threads incite collagen development, which makes the upper face skin appear more youthful with fewer wrinkles and creases.

How Much Is an Eyebrow Lift With Dermal Threads?

The exact cost of an eyebrow lift with dermal threads will vary based on a multitude of factors. The pricing is dependent on the area or areas to be addressed and how many PDO threads will be necessary to cover the vectors to effect a beautiful and natural-looking result. A dermal thread lift, however, is almost always going to be a significantly more affordable type of procedure than a traditional facelift.

Factors That Determine an Eyebrow Lift Price

Several factors work together to determine just how costly an eyebrow lift is. Take a look at the most important factors to consider.

  • Facial plastic surgery or non-surgical?
  • Training and experience of provider (surgeon’s fee)
  • Facility fees by region
  • Anesthesiologist experience (anesthesia fees)
  • Where dermal threads need to be placed
  • Follow-up visits

How Does a Dermal Thread Lift Procedure Work?

The dermal thread lift procedure can vary based on which part of the face or body you are targeting, but brow lifts tend to be fairly straightforward.

  • Rather than using general anesthesia, an injectible anesthetic is applied to the area in which the dermal threads will be inserted to eliminate most potential discomfort from the procedure. Pro-nox is also used to minimize discomfort.
  • Then, a Cannula will be used to insert the threads underneath your skin. Once the threads are in place, the thin needles will be removed. It is common to feel a sense of tightening underneath your skin at this point.
  • After a few minutes have passed after removing the needles, you will be free to go. Given the non-invasive nature of dermal thread lifts, you can go straight home or even back to work with minimal recovery time, though resting at home is always recommended post-procedure.

Before your procedure, you will need to complete a consultation to discover exactly what the procedure can offer and what the potential side effects are. Your medical provider will also take photos of you before the procedure to act as a point of comparison after the procedure to track changes. The procedure itself generally takes about an hour or so, while the dermal threads will be present in your skin for about 12 weeks.

An eyebrow lift can offer quite a few long-lasting benefits that help enhance your youthful appearance.

  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Defined eyebrows
  • Non-invasive
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal average cost with dermal threads

“After being a client for more than 8 years, I have nothing but accolades for Dermacare of Hampton Roads. What initially drew me to Dermacare was the fact that it was medically supervised by a doctor, extremely important in my search for a medical spa. After becoming a member, I have enjoyed my experience with the staff; they have become like family and I always look forward to seeing them. They are truly professional, knowledgeable, then continue to train and keep up-to-date on the latest products and services available. The facility is very well maintained and very clean. Most importantly, which is the bottom line, I am thrilled with the look and feel of my skin. Last August I moved from the area, but continue to fly back to Chesapeake for my services. I haven’t found anything close to my current experience with Dermacare where I currently live. I highly recommend that you give them a try … you won’t be disappointed!!” — Kathryn C.
