Tips for Getting the Desired Thread Lift Results

Australia's cosmetic industry has been growing exponentially over the past few decades, thanks to the increasing number of people who want to look good. The demand has also resulted from celebrity figures flaunting their smooth and perennially young faces on every media platform you can think of. Thread lifting is one such cosmetic innovation that people find exciting. Thread lifting uses biomedical sutures to lift sagging areas on the face. Generally, the biomedical sutures act as temporary scaffolding, allowing high collagen production and firm skin. However, whatever you do after a thread lift procedure determines the results. This article highlights tips to help you get the most out of a thread lift procedure.

Do Not Rub Your Face -- As much as thread lifting is considered a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, your face will feel itchy, albeit for a short time. Therefore, you might feel the urge to rub your face to relieve the itch. However, it is the last thing you should do because rubbing the face as you recover from a thread lift procedure will disturb the biomedical sutures holding the sagging dermal tissue. Consequently, it leads to undesired results, a waste of time and money. In this regard, you should avoid rubbing your face for a few weeks after the procedure. If you feel itchy, gently tap the itching spot to allow the stitches to settle correctly.

Do Not Rush the Swelling -- Itching and swelling are two common and standard after-effects of most cosmetic procedures. Generally, you should expect a little bit of uneven swelling on thread lift spots. For some people, it can be frustrating because they are afraid of how they will look with a swollen face. Thus, you might be tempted to force the swelling down using whatever means possible, but it is the last thing you should do. Rather than rush to reduce the swollen areas, use cold therapy to keep the swellings at a minimum. The good news is that facial swelling only lasts a couple of days after thread lifting. 

Choose Sleeping Positions Carefully -- Of course, it is difficult to control your sleeping positions while asleep because you are semi-conscious. However, you should learn to avoid certain sleeping positions following a thread lift procedure. The reason is that some sleeping positions can undo the biomedical sutures holding dermal tissues beneath the skin. For instance, if you have had a thread lift procedure on your cheeks, you should avoid sleeping on your side. The best position to sleep in after a thread lift procedure is on your back, and you can use quality pillows to help you retain the position throughout the night.
