Have you seen small changes in the elasticity of your skin? Aging and environmental factors cause people to develop fine lines and Crow’s feet around the eyes. If you want to address signs of aging but are not excited about the idea of facelift surgery, polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting may be the answer. But what happens during recovery, and how soon can you return to work after a thread lift?

Nirvana Med Spa is proud to offer thread lift procedures at our facility in Little Rock, AR. Dr. Salman Hashmi is a board-certified doctor who can review the recovery process with you. Patients can enjoy benefits, such as reduced downtime. To learn about thread lift recovery time and aftercare, talk to one of the professionals at our clinic. We can navigate you through the process.

What happens during your thread lift

A thread lift procedure targets signs of aging using medical-grade polydioxanone threads. These threads are effective in all kinds of surgeries because of their ability to rebuild tissue. Nirvana Med Spa chooses from different thread lengths and thicknesses to achieve your desired cosmetic result. Patients can see dramatic improvements when the threads are well-placed.

Threading for wrinkles occurs in one of our treatment rooms with local anesthesia. The threads are inserted in precise locations with a hollow needle. Since there are no incisions involved, patients will not need to worry about scarring. We then carefully pull on the threads to reposition the wrinkled skin. Procedures usually last a short amount of time based on the treatment areas and number of threads.

Thread lift recovery time

The puncture points from the hollow needle will take a little time to heal, which means you may have some redness or soreness. So, when can you return to work? This actually depends on the nature of your job. Patients with a strenuous career that requires plenty of activity and movement may need to take 1 – 2 weeks off for healing. Anyone with a traditional office job can return to work sooner. It is important not to push yourself too hard during thread lift recovery time.

Thread lift aftercare tips

Thread lift aftercare is minimal, but there are still steps patients can take to make recovery more seamless. Some people experience nausea right after treatment due to anesthesia. However, this will pass after a short amount of time. Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR can give you some recovery instructions when it comes to threading for wrinkles. This includes:

  • Use any prescription medications as directed

  • Ice any areas with swelling for a few minutes throughout the day

  • Do not participate in strenuous activities for several weeks

  • Avoid applying makeup or facial products for the rest of the day

  • Keep your head slightly elevated while sleeping to make yourself more comfortable

  • Do not exfoliate or scrub the skin for several weeks
