The thread lift procedure was introduced initially in the late 90s. Although It didn’t wasn’t widely accepted, then as a result of pain and trauma that it caused the patients. It wasn’t until Sinclair Pharma PLC revived the public’s interest of thread lift recently that people generally accept the procedure.
What After-Look Should I Expect?
Just after the treatment, visible lifting can be observed. You may find some needle marks or swelling on the face. They fade away after 1 or 2 days, but most people may choose to hide them with makeup.
It is not out of place to experience bruising and swelling around the needle entry points, but it should go away in about a week. For a few years, your face may feel tightened, it will eventually relax, and in a week at most, your face will feel natural.
What’s the Duration of the Result?
The thread is absorbable and will melt in 9 months’ time at most after the treatment. Then for a further 12 to 18 months, the skin will stay lifted.
You may decide to undergo the procedure again after 18 months, as repeated treatments tend to last longer than the previous treatment.
What Should I Avoid After a Thread Lift Treatment?
To ensure a successful treatment, Post-treatment care is essential; you need to adhere to the following advice:
- Sleep on the supine position for at least one week after the treatment
- Avoid dental treatments and facial massages for a month
- Also, avoid makeup for two days at least
- Consult your doctor if you notice any indentation or dimpling at the entry points
What can I Expect During the Treatment?
A Thread Lift procedure is done under a local anesthetic. Each thread is pierced under the skin to guide the doctor to push the threads up until they are taut and planted. During the procedure, the doctor draws back the sagging skin and tissues and secures them with the tiny cones along the length of the threads in their new position.
