post care instructions and FAQs

A thread lift is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure that passes threads beneath the surface of your skin, to lift the tissue. The threads may have tiny barbs or cones that help grip the skin. When appropriately positioned, they give your face a more lifted, toned appearance, especially around the lower face and jowls. 
Smooth threads consists of creating a crosshatch under the skin which forms a foundation for new collagen production. The crosshatch pattern allows for the smooth threads to tighten the skin naturally from within, reduces the appearance of lines and scars. Results appear almost instantly with a natural lifting or filling look.

When can I expect results?

You'll begin to see results immediately. Skin texture and tone will continue to improve in the coming 6 months.

Should I massage the area?

No, do not massage the treated area.

The Basics
