A cosmetic doctor has revealed how a subtle brow-lifting treatment to create a ‘fox-eyed’ look has seen a 15-fold increase since her booking system went live following the loosening of lockdown this month.
Dr. Mahsa Saleki, founder of SAS Aesthetics in Harley Street, has helped pioneer the treatment known as ‘Fox Eyes’ or ‘Designer Eyes’, a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure lifts the brows and outer corners of your eyes.
The £500 treatment uses dissolvable stitches to create almond shaped eyes with a lifted brow tail, and is aimed to giving women a lifted brow and upper eye lid lift without the downtime of surgery as it takes just half an hour – and heals completely in less than two weeks.
Speaking to FEMAIL, Dr Saleki revealed many of her clients are busy career women looking to have the treatment in their lunch break and said they want to emulate the youthful winged eyes of celebrities like Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
Harley street’s Dr. Mahsa Saleki told FEMAIL how a subtle brow-lifting treatment which gives clients a ‘cat-eyed’ look has seen a 15-fold increase since her booking system went live, following the loosening of lockdown this month – inspired by celebrities like Bella Hadid (seen left, before, and right with a more lifted look in recent years)
She said: ‘The Fox Eyes treatment has proved very popular in our clinic since I introduced the technique back in January.
‘However, following lockdown it’s become one of the only treatments clients seem to be asking for, with an almost 15 times increase in bookings since our booking system went live this month.
‘As with a lot of current beauty and aesthetic trends, social media plays a big role, particularly with increased engagement during lockdown.
‘The Fox Eyes treatment itself is something a lot of our clients hadn’t come across before but the effect it creates is something that makeup trends have been aspiring to for some time.’
The £500 treatment uses disolvable stitches to create almond shaped peepers with a lifted brow tail, and is aimed to giving women a lifted brow and upper eye lid lift without the downtime of surgery as it takes just half an hour – and heals completely in less than two weeks.

She continued: ‘This 30 minute lunchtime treatment can elongate the eyes, lift the brows and open the upper eyelid, which not only is flattering with or without makeup but also creates an openness and focus on the eyes that few other treatments do.
‘Our clients love that such an outcome can now be achieved in around 30 minutes, when previously surgery was the only option.
‘The treatment is proving to be popular among a range of people – from young Instagram influencers wanting the latest aesthetics to look like super models Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, to older women looking for a reasonably priced option to combat hooded eyes.’

How does the Fox Eyes treatment work?
How it works
The procedure itself involves the administration of a local anaesthetic injection above the brow and insertion of a Polydioxanone suture under the skin through a single needle puncture. This is then left in place to support the lift.

The suture will dissolve overtime with minimal side effects. The skin folds and needle mark will fully heal over 3-10days leaving behind a natural lift.
The Cost on average is £500-£750.
How long does it last?
Results last up to a year.
How does it differ from surgery?
There are no permanent changes to your face and you won’t have part of your eyelid cut away as with a blepharoplasty. You can also adapt the changes after the treatment if you’d like a less dramatic look.

Describing how the treatment works, she continued: ‘This medical treatment, which should be done by a doctor uses dissolvable sutures to lift the outer eye corner as well as for those who wish to simultaneously lift the brow.
‘However, it’s important to point out that the treatment can be customised so that the brow is minimally changed. This treatment is a great alternative to surgery and can be done in just under 30 minutes.
‘For all the clients the treatment modality is the same, dissolvable suture materials are introduced under the skin using local anaesthetic with an instant result which heals into a natural and flattering lift with an average downtime of one week.
‘The results however are versatile and can be tweaked in accordance with what the individual client is after.’
She added: ‘Ultimately what this trend is proving to us,is that clients truly want safe, affordable and effective alternatives to surgery. They are increasingly opting for temporary tweakments that respect their autonomy to revert back to their most natural selves if they so wished.’
Comparing it to permanent surgery, such as blepharoplasty where part of the eyelid is cut away and stitched, Dr. Mahsa Saleki continued: ‘Prior to this treatment, very few options other than surgery were available to lift the brows and alter the eyes shape and elongation.
‘This treatment works by creating a mechanical lift of one or all three elements of the lateral canthus of the eyes, upper eyelids and eyebrows in full synchrony without a single incision.
‘The absolute beauty of this treatment is that the final result is fully determined by the client and can be changed instantly if the client would so wish, making it a tweakment true to its core.’
Speaking about how she will perform the treatment with COVID safety measures, Dr Saleki said: ‘All treatments are done with staff wearing full PPE and clients wearing face masks and maintaining strict hygiene measures.
‘There are two stages to the treatment which each take less than 10 minutes – meaning we do not breach the current government guidelines of a maximum time spent of 15 minutes at two meters apart.’
