Advanced Skin & Vein Care Centers was the first to introduce the FDA approved lunchtime facelift procedure known as Threads facelift into Lexington and Georgetown!! Thread lifts involve the use of threads or sutures made from the same materials used in surgery to close wounds. When placed under the skin, they can be used to tighten and volumize areas of the skin that are loose or sagging. Much like suspension cables, they are designed to hold up the skin in place, and provide a supportive structure that defies the effects of gravity and aging.
Thread lifts are a convenient 'lunchtime' facial rejuvenation alternative, that requires no general anesthesia, hospitalisation or long recovery, and gives immediate results that continue to improve up to 2 months after the procedure. The volumizing effect lasts 18-24 months. They can be performed in various areas of the face and body line face (known as thread facelift), neck, arms, hands, abdomen, breast, buttock, forehead, and eyebrows (known as eyebrow thread lift) to target specific problem areas. The prices are more competitive than fillers and the results last much longer. Price depends on how many and what kind of threads are required. We offer free consultation to answer all your questions. Call 859-554-0519 for free consultation.
Caregiving Tips for Caring a Loved One After Thread Lift
Bruises and unevenness
The treatment is mostly considered safe, but there are chances they will have some mild bruises a few days after treatment. Sometimes you will notice a minor hollow, bunching, or unevenness on their skin, but don’t worry because they are only temporary. Again, the thread lift rarely leaves severe infection. However, receivers, especially those who are provided with multiple threads, may experience some slight swelling and a slight feeling of tension at the lifted areas. Doctors can require them to take antibiotics to prevent infection.
There are some rare and minimal risks but they also need to your notice. If your loved one is allergic to the anesthetic then they may have some allergic reactions. Mild infections can occur right at the position they insert the thread. In case the thread leaves a pucker, ask the doctor for treatment and do not try to fix it yourself.
Problems with the thread
Thread lift may unfortunately leave scars on the skin. People will be advised to apply sun block regularly to avoid hyper pigmentation areas and exposure to the sun which can result in scarring. The first few weeks after procedure, it may be a little difficult for the treated areas to normally move. Keep their body relax and chill to boost the healing process.
As with any treatment, every emerging abnormal signs should be reported to the doctor for solutions. Do not worry because the recovery time after a thread lift is short. It lasts for about a few resting days but it is better consulting with an expert for accurate period.
After treatment, your loved one will have strange feeling about their new look. No matter how their appearance is, stay beside and let them know that there are always solutions for any problem after treatment. Keeping them think positively is important since good emotions play as effective recovery boosters.
