A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can help to reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall quality and tone of your skin. However, there are certain activities that you should avoid after a thread lift in order to ensure the best results. It is recommended to avoid sleeping on your stomach or side, wearing makeup, drinking alcohol, making extreme facial expressions, and receiving facials and facial massages for at least 12 hours after treatment. Additionally, you should refrain from taking any nutritional supplements or medications that may thin your blood for seven days after the procedure.
These include vitamins A, C and E, garlic supplements, Gingko Biloba, and fish oil. It is also important to avoid sunbathing, strenuous exercise, extremes of heat or cold, and touching, wetting or washing your face for 14 days after treatment. These activities have been found to increase and prolong swelling. The swelling may get worse in the first 24 hours and then should go away in the first few days.
When showering and cleaning the area, be careful not to massage or rub with a cloth for 3 weeks after the thread lift. Additionally, try to sleep on your back with your head resting on a pillow to minimize swelling after a thread lift. Choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform the thread lift is essential in order to avoid any serious facial and health problems. It is important to make sure that they understand facial anatomy and how to deal with side effects or unforeseen circumstances that may arise during or after a particular procedure. Your plastic surgeon may also recommend additional therapies or cosmetic procedures such as Botox or Juvederm to increase the effects of thread lift. A thread lift is considered a low-risk procedure with minimal recovery time, but it is important to be aware of what activities you should avoid after a thread lift in order to ensure the best results.
