My first PDO threadlift @themanseclinic ! I had long threads 3 years ago, and I was overdue! I planned to have 100-150 in my face and neck today, but we ended up only doing 70! Dr Adina travelled to Korea to train last year, and we’ve been waiting so long for TGA approval. So happy they’ve finally arrived. After having the treatment, I can see why this type of threads are so popular in Asia. They are so easy and relatively painless (definitely less painful than fillers!), and you can see a subtle lift straight away!!! I love being the patient! I’ll load up the full procedure to my insta story later tonight.

UNDER EYE REJUVENATION 👀 @themanseclinic . The undereye region is an area on the face that causes patients a lot of distress. They are concerned with ageing, including hollowing, tear troughs, dark circles and skin quality issues. Alex, who works at @themanseclinic , is very motivated to treat her under eyes. Like most patients she has multiple issues going on in that area. Here Alex is using non-ablative fractional laser to improve her under eye skin. This non invasive laser is used to treat the texture and quality of the skin, and improve crepiness. The majority of patients who have filler under their eyes should also consider skin treatments for the under eye area. Filler in this area always works better when the overlying skin is of good quality. Our favourite treatments to improve under eye skin quality that we offer @themanseclinic include the following: 😷 topical skin treatments 😷 peels 💉 skinbooster 💉 troughbooster 💉 PRP (platelet rich plasma) 💉 needling 💥 non-ablative fractional laser 💥 non-ablative full field lasers 💥 RF skin tightening 💥 ablative fractional laser 💥 full field resurfacing laser Obviously in this industry improvements are always being made and I can tell you about a couple of things maybe becoming available for this area soon 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. 💉 biostimulator and 💉 threads For the under eye area, a multipronged approach will achieve the best results. Just to let you know a bit about Alex’s treatment. When used on the face there is minimal downtime, but when used under the eyes there tends to be more swelling. For two days after her laser treatment, Alex looked like she had poor placement of cheek filler with swollen under eye area. By day 3 she looked ok. #themanseglowup - - - - - #eyerejuvenation #crowsfeet #eyewrinkles #darkcircles #teartroughs #teartroughfillers #teartrough #pelleve #skinlaser #profractional #scitonlaser #lasergenesis #qswitchlaser #skinbooster #prp #plateletrichplasma #vampirefacial #troughbooster #erbiumlaser #fraxellaser #fractionallaser #skincareroutine #skincare #skinprocrdures #undereyewrinkles
