Thread Lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can help reduce the signs of aging. Using small absorbable threads to create tension in the skin lifts and tightens sagging tissue, restoring a youthful contour to the face. Not only does this treatment give you immediate results, but it also encourages your skin to produce more collagen, further smoothing and lifting your skin. With minimal downtime and natural-looking results, a thread lift is a safe and effective way to turn back the clock on your skin.
Some important questions you need to ask your surgeon before the treatment:
- Are you a good candidate for this treatment?
- What are the expected results from the treatment?
- What happens if you are not satisfied with the results?
- Why should you prefer a facelift procedure over other skin rejuvenating treatments?
When can you start working again?
Depending on your job type and environment, return time will vary. Suppose your job doesn’t require a lot of activity. In that case, you should expect to return to work in 1-2 days. In case of more strenuous jobs or work requiring more activity and movement like if you are nurse or trainer, you would need to take more off.
When can you take a shower?
After the treatment, you should avoid taking a shower, wetting, and touching your face for at least 12 hours. Once the instructed time passes, you can shower, but be careful not to massage or scrub the treated area with a washcloth for 3 weeks.
When can you resume your regular skincare routine?
After the first 48 hours, you can resume your basic wash, dry, and lotion routine but refrain from scrubbing, massaging, and exfoliating. Before applying any cream or topical medication, consult your surgeon first.
When can you wear makeup?
You have to wait 48 hours after the procedure. Once the recommended time is up, you can wear makeup as it helps you to cover any remaining bruising.
When can you start exercising?
After 1 week of the treatment, you can restart doing light exercises such as walking. Avoid doing any exercise that strains the affected area, like weightlifting or yoga (which requires your head to be below your heart), for at least 7 days or until you are cleared by your surgeon.
When can you go swimming?
As mentioned earlier, you have to take precautions not to wet your face for 42 hours, which means you can’t go swimming. So, you must be patient until the treatment area has completely healed. The same instructions are suggested for saunas and hot tubs.
Can you get more than one thread facelift treatment in life?
You can get multiple thread treatments or combine different thread types to achieve desired lifting effects. Get your treatment at London Laser Clinic today.
What is the age limit for getting thread lift treatment, and which type of threads will be used according to age bracket?
People between the ages of 28-48 can get stimulating threads, those aged 38-58 tend to get anchoring threads, and those over 58 can get this treatment if they have sufficient volume and excellent skin quality.
How much does a thread facelift cost?
Cost should vary depending on the treatment area and the number of areas to be treated.
