Sleep Deprivation Shows – Global Sleep Study

We envy the numerous models on Instagram with smoky eyes, big alluring eyes and oh, how we love those eye-raising cat eyes! Having younger looking eyes definitely draws one deeper into an unreachable charismatic charm, a dream only celebrities and the privileged few can have. But in 2021, 6 in 10 Singaporeans aren’t sleeping well, according to Channel News Asia1 and according to a lifestyle article by the BBC2 and extensive medical research journal listed by the US Government (PMC)3 on the effects of Sleep Deprivation and Facial Appearance  – it is a known fact that being sleep deprived will only give us a haggard, sleep deprived look and affects both Men and Women. Dark eye circles and eye bags are just a result of this.

… Sleep deprived will only give us a haggard, sleep

deprived look and affects both Men and Women.

So if you’re like the rest of Singapore and Asia, we work and study late, drink or socialize too much, sleep too little. It’s no wonder, On World Sleep Day 20214, a global study shows that Singaporeans are the third most sleep deprived in Asia, after Tokyo and Seoul. But hey, we’ll let you in on a little insider beauty secret – the hundreds of photos showing ordinary mortals also having deep beautiful mesmerizing eyes are very likely obtained after one has just done a procedure known as an Eye Thread Lift.

 

Proven Treatment for Eye Concerns

Thread lifts for the uninitiated are non-surgical eye treatments that involve inserting dissolvable threads around the eyes to lift and pull up skin. These threads anchor into the tissue to pull and tuck it in place and results in one obtaining younger-looking eyes. These treatments do not require the patient to go through anaesthesia though local anaesthesia or numbing cream is usually used for the comfort of the patient. These ultra-fine surgical-grade bio-degradable synthetic polymer threads dissolve over time and are sutured in place just under the skin to ‘stitch’ loose skin and give it less of a saggy appearance.

These threads are usually made of polydioxanone (PDO)

and are safe.

As an alternative to going under the knife, these treatments can be performed on other parts of the face as well and are not just limited to just the under-eye area. These threads are usually made of polydioxanone (PDO) and are safe, being absorbed into your skin tissue and do not require any removal. As they are broken down, metabolized over a span of about 10 months, they help to trigger collagen and hyaluronic acid production and stimulation, this through a controlled, and very low inflammatory healing response from the body as it tries to expel the sutures.

As the biocompatible thread starts to be absorbed into the body, it induces new fibroblasts and blood vessels to be produced that results in a tighter, firmer but also moisturized plumper looking skin. This process carries on even after the threads have been fully absorbed into the body. The Thread lifts we use have been in the market for more than 20 years. Read here to know more.

 

How will a Thread Lift be carried out?

Our aesthetician will first prep your skin and the doctor will determine beforehand on the vectors of where the thread will run. A nick is made at the point of insertion and a cannula or rod is plunged into it. The thread is normally attached to the guiding cannula or rod which is brought along the length of the vectors marked out. Then, the thread is run along the sagging area to lift and as the cannula exits, the thread will be deposited unto the targeted area as the doctor tugs and strategically lifts the sagging tissue up.

Thread lifts are not an all-inclusive anti-aging treatment solution, slightly invasive and are usually recommended here at our clinic in conjunction with other treatments such as Botox, REJURAN® Healer or even as a stand-alone treatment(s), all dependent upon your skin condition, response to treatment and treatment expectations. Aesthetic Eye Thread Lifts last, usually 6-12 months, are the middle ground alternative to the even more higher end expensive and painful plastic surgery and, less painful and expensive treatment that has better lasting results, much more than ordinary expensive topical eye creams that may not always deliver required results. At the area where the thread was inserted, any loose and saggy skin looks less droopy and tighter, eye bags are smoothen out while fine lines and dark circles are less noticeable.
