Non-Surgical Thread Lift
Ageing is an absolutely unavoidable procedure. As one ages, one can feel their facial features experiencing a lot of changes as the skin loses its laxity and starts to appear droopy and saggy. The eyebrows are one of the most prominent parts of the face and rightly called as the crown of the eyes. With age, one can experience that the eyebrows start to lose their shape and start appearing droopy. What can be done then in order to have youthful looking and firm eyebrows even as one ages?

- An individual who is above 18 years of age.
- An individual who is physically fit to undergo the procedure.

What to expect at the consultation with Dr Ashish Davalbhakt?
Consultations are an absolutely important aspect when it comes to any kid of treatment. This is the main reason that Dr Ashish Davalbhakt prioritizes his one-on-one consultations with the patient.
This is the time where you will be asked about your needs and requirements from the procedure. Dr Ashish will explain in detail what the procedure entails and give the patient an idea about the achievable result. Also, the patient will be explained the entirety of the procedure so that they can make an informed decision before undergoing the procedure.
Thread lift for lifting the brows does not work with the ‘one-for-all’ approach. It has to be customized according to every patient’s face shape, the amount of ageing and other such factors. Dr Ashish understands this and hence gives utmost importance to consultation.
Consultations are also an excellent time for the patients to examine their comfort level and rapport with the doctor as this is one of the most important aspects for a successful procedure.
What to expect before the procedure?
Before the procedure, Dr Ashish will need to know the entirety of your medical history including any procedures that you have done in the past. Any pills, supplements or medications must be informed as well. This is necessary for the procedure to go smoothly without any complications.
Any allergic reactions must be told to the doctor. Dr Ashish will also ask you to undergo a few blood tests in order to rule out any chances of other impending issues. You will be asked to stop certain medications, specifically blood-thinning medications.
Avoiding the in-take of nicotine in any and all forms is not allowed as it hampers the recovery and healing procedure.
Apart from that, the patient only needs to keep a relaxed and positive frame of mind as a preparation of the thread lift at Advanced Aesthetics, Pune.
How is brow lift through thread lift performed at Advanced Aesthetics?
- The first step of the procedure is the administration of local anaesthesia. The local anaesthesia is given to ensure the comfort of the patient and keeping him/her pain-free throughout the duration of the procedure.
- A thin needle is inserted in the area to be lifted. The depth of the needle is maintained at the subdermal level. Medical-grade thread is passed into the skin through the needle to tighten and lift the brows.
- This procedure needs precision and accuracy. The needle is slowly withdrawn and the tissue is ‘gathered’ over the thread. Once the desired effect has been reached, the long ends of the thread are then cut off.
With the procedure of hydrolysis, whatever part remains inside the skin gets dissolved over the next 6 months.The new collagen and fibrous tissue that had formed around the sutures then continue to hold the skin up and tighten the skin.
What to expect during recovery from thread lift?
Patients might feel tightness immediately after the procedure. This is common as the skin has been lifted upwards. The anesthesia generally wears down after 30 to 40 minutes and the patient can go home after that.
Application of ice-pack is necessary for at least 7 to 10 days after the procedure so as to control the swelling and bruising which is a common after effect of the procedure.
The doctor will also ask you to refrain from washing your face over the next 12 hours.
Patients can start normal activities after 2 days. Heavy exercise or physically strenuous activities can be started after 2 weeks of full recovery.
