When the medical-grade threads are inserted under the skin, they not only pull the loose skin up but also starts the “healing response” of the body by initiating a large amount of collagen remodelling on the treated area.
This works beautifully on the overall look of the skin since collagen plays a vital role in anti-ageing.
Collagen supports the production of “growth Hormones” which play a significant role in the appearance of skin. Collagen helps in wound healing and adds volume to our skin, making it appear very supple. As we age, the collagen production reduces in our body, which is a the reason behind progressive ageing.
Precautions after thread lift
For a week to two weeks after the procedure, one should avoid rigorous facial massages. Try to sleep on your back to avoid putting direct
weight on your face while sleeping for at least 2 weeks post-procedure.
Thread lifts are performed under local anesthesia, making it comfortable for the individual. There may be mild scarring, soreness, redness post-procedure which settles down soon, no heavy painkillers are needed after the procedure. This makes an individual go back to the normal routine immediately after the procedure.
