When you arrive at our clinic, we will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have. Then, our physician will cleanse your face and apply a topical numbing agent. The physician will then create a small puncture site to allow for the insertion of the thread. After anchoring the thread in place, slight pressure will be applied to lift the tissue. The thread will not be visible.
Downtime is minimal, but you may have some swelling and bruising for up to two days. For one to two weeks, avoid rubbing your face, sleeping on your side, using saunas, or engaging in intense exercise. Results may vary, but some patients enjoy results for up to one year, while some may see results last longer.
