This creates a fox eye look. Others call it a cat eye or designer eye look. This elongates the eyes horizontally and most say this looks flattering.
The fox eye lift treatment usually lasts from 12 to 18 months depending on many variables. Patients may also need some additional threads during this time period to touch up the look. No one can guarantee how long the treatment will last. All patients have different human genetics and lifestyles.
Thread Lift Avoids Surgery
A thread lift is non-surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. This allows patients to avoid painful invasive surgery. They avoid the healing time required after surgery. In addition, they do not have the higher financial costs associated with it.
Threads Dissolve Naturally

Most of us are familiar with dissolving sutures under the skin used to close up skin wounds after surgery. These threads dissolve naturally within the body. Dissolving sutures or threads, are Health Canada approved.
The threads are generally fully dissolved 9 months following your treatment. The pdo threads continue to stimulate collagen production under the skin after that. Collagen is what we need more of as we age.
Threads Work With Fillers & Relaxers
Now, you might be asking yourself where wrinkle fillers and wrinkle relaxers fit in. Well, they are not going away. Thread lifts, dermal fillers and relaxers in fact work together to produce a fresh and youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are still required and used in combination with a thread lift. Together they produce a better result. Relaxers are still needed as well to relax facial muscles every 3 to 4 months. Take a look at our special offers for bargain treatment prices.
The thread lift physically lifts the skin, stretching sagging skin upward and backward. A thread lift is enhanced with facial fillers. For example, a patient with deep nasolabial folds and sagging jowls needs both. They get the best result when combining both threads and fillers.
Think of it this way. Thread lifts are one more tool in the toolbox for practitioners. The more tools practitioners have, the more likely your youthful look will be restored. Book a treatment online and get a free consultation with no obligation.
