Wearing Makeup & Cleansing

You want to avoid touching or applying pressure to your face after your thread lift procedure. Refrain from wearing makeup for a minimum of 24 hours post-procedure. Directly after this time apply makeup gently, especially near the incision marks. It is important for your skin to be able to breathe after your treatment, makeup and other cosmetic products prevent this.

Do not rub your face aggressively when washing, shaving, and drying face for days. 

High Intensity Exercise

Refrain from exercise for 24 hours. Sweating can allow bacteria to enter the injection sites increasing your chance for infection. Regulating your blood pressure at a normal range will help to prevent sweating. 

Post Care Medication

Acetaminophen may be taken, at the suggested dose, in case of pain. To prevent or reduce any further bruising avoid Aspirin/Advil for 14 days.

Sleeping on Your Back

Sleep face up, elevated on pillows for 3-5 nights. Avoiding pressure while the threads have time to set is very important for preserving your results.

For this reason, avoid face down massages and facial aesthetic treatments for 4 weeks. Certain facials include the use of chemicals that can effect the skin negatively during this recovery period.

Saunas or Hot Tubs

Due to the high temperatures and risk of infection, do not use saunas for 3 weeks. It is also best practice to avoid direct exposure to sunlight and UV light for two weeks. Consider having a warm bath as opposed to a hot shower following your treatment.

What is a Thread Lift?

The newest and hottest treatment in Canada is now at The Sharma Clinic. Thread lifts offer patients a new way of creating beautiful angles without adding volume to the face. Using literal threads we are able to tighten and lift areas of the face and neck for up to two years. Much like dermal fillers the results are instant and have little to no downtime.
