Following thread placement you will have a series of needle marks on each side of the face which will remain visible for the rest of the day, but can be covered with makeup the next day.
Some patients experience minor bruising and swelling around the insertion points which resolve in 5-10 days and you may feel tender around the threads for up to 7 days.
Aftercare the procedure you should:
- Sleep on your back for 3-5 nights.
- Avoid sunbathing, tanning beds and contact sports for 14 days.
- Avoid swimming pools, spas, saunas and dental surgery for 21 days.
- Men should avoid shaving for 7 days.
You will not look your best immediately after treatment because of the ruching, dimpling, blanching and numbness from the procedure, but this will pass and we would recommend you take avoid work and social engagement for 24 hours after the procedure.
