How Does an Eyebrow Thread Lift Work?

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a substance used to non-surgically “lift” the eyebrow or other treatment area and to improve multiple skin concerns. We use NovaThreads at Entre Nous, which come in three types: barbed, smooth, and twists, made in the USA. They also help stimulate collagen production in your skin, giving you lasting results after they dissolve!

Here’s how an eyebrow thread lift in Menlo Park works 👇


Before your treatment, you’ll complete a consultation with one of our specialists. We’ll examine your eyebrow area, discuss your goals for an eyebrow thread lift, and answer your questions. Next, we’ll create a customized treatment plan for you!


In the office, we use a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Your provider will insert the threads along the deep surface of the skin using a sharp needle or a cannula (blunt needle).  

The discomfort associated with treatment is like the discomfort with most injectables, very minimal pain. The procedure takes between 15 to 20 minutes, and may be longer depending on your unique treatment plan. 

Although there is some risk of bruising, there is minimal swelling and you should be able to return to work after leaving the office.

There is no significant downtime afterward, and patients often see visible improvement within days! We recommend you take it easy and avoid exercise for at least 24 hours after treatment. 

The best part is your results improve over time as your body makes more collagen in the treatment area 👏
