Preparing for a Face Thread Lift

Natural beauty and a youthful look won’t last forever. These things will fade over time and leave behind skin that is wrinkly, worn, saggy and blemished. The elasticity of the skin will change in time, and that’s because the skin is losing collagen.

There are a number of skin surfacing treatments that can be performed to help with reducing wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. A face thread lift can smooth out the skin and help to return its natural, original vibrancy and youthfulness.

It can be a fine alternative to surgery and expensive or dangerous procedures. While many people are undergoing this procedure as a way to rejuvenate their face, there are a few things you should know about preparing for the treatment before you have it done.

Change Your Activity

While a face thread lift is a simple procedure that has practically no downtime, you do need to take some precautions. You can’t just live your life like you normally would and expect everything to be okay with the face thread lift. You will have to make a few adjustments, and we want to clue you in as to what those are.

You should probably abstain from the sexual activity for at least a week following the procedure. That’s the advisable period of time, but you may need longer, depending on your situation. Your aesthetician who performs the treatment will advise you there, and you may want to consult with your regular doctor as well.

Exercise should be avoided as well for about a week after the procedure. You can do your normal activities, but just nothing too strenuous. That’s because the tightening in the face and straining and sweating that is all part of exercising and sexual activity is bad for the thread lift. You can upset the carefully placed threads and disturb the work that was done, if you are not careful.

Activity that places any strain on an area of the body that has been treated will need to be avoided. If you have questions or concerns about resuming that kind of activity too quickly, then consult with your doctor. It’s better to take things slow and be safe about it than to risk damaging the treatment and having to do it all over again.

Don’t Use Makeup Afterwards

We’re not saying you can never use makeup once you have a face thread lift, but you do need to keep in mind that you should not wear any makeup for at least 48 hours following the procedure. You have to let the treated area heal fully, and it won’t be able to do that well if you are applying makeup, closing up many of the pores that aid in the healing process.

You shouldn’t even be touching the treated area for a few days. This allows it to heal fast and properly and minimize the risk that something will go wrong and need to be corrected. Prepare yourself for not wearing makeup for a few days and for keeping your hands off your face. If you have any plans for facials, spa treatment, going out for an event or anything else that might involve you touching up your face, then you need to cancel or reschedule those.

Temper Your Expectations

Finally, we want to say to keep your expectations firmly in check. This thread lift treatment is pretty amazing and produces some great results, but it won’t work the same for everyone. Some people just have different kinds of skin or facial structures that make the process more difficult or trickier.

Also, the results may not show up in a pronounced way for a while. This is the kind of treatment that gives you better and better results over time. Bear in mind, though, that this isn’t the same as a facelift procedure, so the results will not be the same. The face thread lift is simpler and less complicated. It’s cheaper and quicker too, with a shorter recovery time, so don’t expect the same kind of outcome that you would get from a full surgical facelift.

A face thread lift is good for anyone who has moderately lax skin. If you think it might be right for you, check with your local aesthetician and set up a consultation.
