What happens after the procedure?
You’ll need to ice the area, but make sure the cold packs are not placed directly on the skin. Take Panadol 2-4 hourly for the next 2 hours. Don’t apply makeup for 24 hours.
Sleep with an extra pillow on at least a 30-degree angle for 3-5 nights. Be very gentle in washing and shaving your face.
For the first 2 weeks, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds, contact sports, dentists, saunas and over-expression.
Avoid significant massaging of your face for 4 weeks.
Important: If you have any concerns don’t hesitate to contact your doctor.
What results can you expect?
Immediate results can be seen once the threads have been inserted, however, this will improve over the next 3-6 months. Results are expected to last 12-24 months.
Immediately after the lifting and placements, there will be a series of needle marks on each side of the face. These will remain visible for the rest of the day, although most people are able to cover them up the next day with makeup. Excess pulling will also be noted.
You may experience some bruising and swelling around the sutures, although this tends to be minor and short-lived. For up to a week after the procedure, it may feel tender around the sutures.
How can I enhance my results?
Results from this procedure can be enhanced by pairing the treatment with Skin Tightening such as HIFU or Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, Wrinkle Relaxers, Dermal FIllers and Laser Skin Rejuvenation.
