How to Reduce Under Eye Bags with a Thread Lift Treatment

Under eye bags can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, aging, and lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep and stress. These bags may be due to excess fat, swelling, or sagging skin in the area around the eyes.

A thread lift treatment can be used to lift and tighten the skin in the under eye area, which may help to reduce the appearance of under eye bags. Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are commonly used for this purpose because they are made of a synthetic absorbable material that is commonly used in medical sutures. These threads can be inserted into the skin using a needle or a blunt cannula, and they work by lifting and tightening the skin to improve the overall contour of the face.

During the procedure, the PDO threads are inserted into the skin in a specific pattern to lift and tighten the skin in the under eye area. The threads are then anchored in place to hold the skin in a lifted position. As the threads are absorbed by the body over time, they stimulate collagen production, which can help to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

While PDO threads may provide a better outcome in the under eye area compared to other types of threads, such as polylactic acid (PLLA) threads, it’s important to note that all thread lift treatments carry some risk of complications, including swelling, bruising, and infection. It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with a qualified practitioner before making a decision.

It’s also important to note that a thread lift treatment may not be suitable for everyone, and it may not be as effective for people with severe under eye bags or sagging skin. In these cases, a surgical procedure, such as a blepharoplasty, may be a more appropriate treatment option.

It’s also worth considering that swelling may be more common in the under eye area compared to other areas of the face because the skin in this area is thinner and more delicate. It’s important to follow the post-procedure instructions provided by your practitioner, including using ice packs and avoiding strenuous activity, to help minimize swelling.

It’s rare, but it is possible to experience vision problems after a thread lift treatment. This may be due to the thread lift causing swelling or pressure in the area around the eyes. If you experience any vision changes or other unusual symptoms after the procedure, it’s important to contact your practitioner as soon as possible for further evaluation and care.

It’s important to have realistic expectations about the results of a thread lift treatment for under eye bags. While a thread lift can help to lift and tighten the skin in the under eye area, it may not be able to completely eliminate under eye bags or sagging skin.

In addition, the effects of a thread lift treatment are not permanent and the skin may eventually return to its original position over time. To maintain the results of the treatment, it may be necessary to have additional treatments in the future.

It’s also worth noting that a healthy lifestyle, including getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and managing stress, can help to support the results of a thread lift treatment and may help to reduce the appearance of under eye bags.

Overall, a thread lift treatment can be an effective way to lift and tighten the skin in the under eye area and may help to reduce the appearance of under eye bags. It’s important to discuss the procedure with a qualified practitioner and to have realistic expectations about the results.
