What is DERMA SPRING Eye Thread Lift?
DERMA SPRING EYE is a specially designed, minimally invasive thread lift procedure for skin laxity around the eyes. The procedure utilises highly biocompatible Polydioxanone (PDO) threads which achieve both immediate and long-term lifting with minimal side effects and almost no downtime. In fact, DERMA SPRING is one of the most effective non-surgical methods to address wrinkles, sagging skin, under eye bags, dark eye circles and other symptoms associated with aging.
What is special about DERMA SPRING Eye Thread Lift and how does it work?
DERMA SPRING eye threads are specially designed for the region around the eyes. During treatment, the threads are inserted into the skin layers in eye area using a blunt cannula. The lifting effect is achieved via 2 main mechanisms. Firstly, the threads physically tighten and lift the treated area by applying gentle pressure to compress the skin. Secondly, the threads stimulate crucial regenerative processes in the skin via mechanotransduction. These processes include increased production of skin collagen and key growth factors, which rejuvenate the skin, thus achieving lifting and tightening effects at the cellular level. Together, the 2 mechanisms give DERMA SPRING both short and long-term effects, especially in addressing eye bags, wrinkles and other symptoms associated with aging.
DERMA SPRING eye threads are made from 100% biodegradable Polydioxanone (PDO) which are highly biocompatible. They will naturally break down in the skin and have minimal side effects, making them suitable for anyone who desires a minimally invasive non-surgical lifting procedure.
Procedure of DERMA SPRING Eye Threads lift
DERMA SPRING Eye thread lift typically takes no more than an hour. You will first consult our doctors who will assess your condition and features to customise a procedure for you. After which, numbing cream will be applied on the treatment area for about 30 minutes before the actual insertion of the threads, which will take about 15 minutes.
Before the procedure begins, local anaesthesia will be administered to reduce any pain and discomfort.
