A thread lift is a popular treatment that uses dissolvable threads to tighten and lift the skin to combat the signs of aging. While the thread lift procedure is safe and very successful, certain precautions must be taken to ensure you get optimal results. Here we tell you the necessary care after tension threads.
1. Sleep on your side or stomach
One of the most important things to avoid after a thread lift is applying excessive pressure to the treatment area. Consequently, sleeping on your side or stomach is not recommended after the procedure.
Therefore, if you usually sleep on your side or stomach, practice sleeping on your back for at least a week before treatment.
2. Wear makeup
Cav thread lifts do not leave patients with marks or scars after treatment.
Therefore, it is essential to avoid the temptation to apply makeup for at least 48 hours after the treatment, as cosmetic products could irritate you. Even products that cause minimal irritation can irritate the skin and prevent it from healing properly.
Additionally, many people apply a significant amount of pressure to the skin when applying and removing makeup, which can exacerbate irritation and delay healing.
3. Vigorous exercise
Unfortunately, patients will need to avoid their regular exercise routine for at least seven days after treatment. Slow walks or simple stretching are fine, but any other strenuous activity that increases your heart rate and raises blood pressure, including sex, can hinder the healing process.
4. Smoking and alcohol
You should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least 14 days after a thread lift for the most effective results. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes you to lose a lot of water and essential nutrients necessary for proper healing. Drinking alcohol can also cause an increase in blood pressure. Like alcohol, smoking can also increase blood pressure.
Additionally, nicotine and other chemicals in cigarette smoke constrict blood vessels and make it difficult for nutrients to pass through the bloodstream to the skin. Smoking cessation aids such as nicotine patches and gum should also be avoided due to their nicotine content.
As you can see, a treatment with tension threads can be the perfect solution to recover the youth of your face. Do you want to learn more about this safe and effective treatment? Contact us to give you more information.
