What is the ThreadLift™ recovery like?
Like all needle-based facial treatments (Botox or fillers), there is a risk of swelling and bruising. Pain and discomfort are very minimal and most patients can apply makeup the next day and resume quiet activities. There are some special protective measures aids and instructions that patients must follow for 3 weeks to avoid trauma and disruption of the threads, which might compromise the lift effect achieved.
When can I return to work and activities?
Depending upon your job and your tolerance for some minor bruising and swelling, you may be able to return to work the day following the procedure, wearing make-up. Face animations, mouth movements and rubbing or pressure on the face should be avoided during the first 3 weeks following your ThreadLift™. Most ThreadLift™ patients look good in make-up the next day and good without makeup after 3-4 days.
Am I a good candidate for a ThreadLift™?
Good ThreadLift™ candidates have droopiness in the brows, cheeks, jowls and/or neck and realistic expectations. Patients should not be too heavy or too thin, should be medically well and not be on blood-thinning medications.
The best ThreadLift™ candidates desire a quick, risk-diminished lift effect and do not want the scars, risks, recovery or expense of surgery.
