Facelift surgery until now was the best way to fix the issues created by facial skin laxity, such as jowls and drooping cheeks. However, not everyone is willing or able to have surgery. A facelift is the ideal choice for people who want to maintain a youthful appearance. The cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it, instead of removing your loose facial skin surgically.
In order to create a tighter, smoother complexion, the procedure involves inserting threads into the skin, which are then pulled tight, lifting the skin and underlying muscle. The results are expected to last around 12 to 18 months. As the threads dissolve naturally, the skin starts to produce more collagen and elastin, which gives a longer-lasting result.
The greatly shortened healing time associated with thread lifts is the greatest advantage of doing a thread lift rather than a facelift. Since thread lifts are so low-risk and have such a quick recovery period, in order to create more detailed, noticeable outcomes, it is possible to incorporate them with other nonsurgical procedures.

This treatment does not have a lot of special after-care requirements. However, for the first two weeks after your thread lift, you should hold off on any dental treatments.
In addition, for the first couple of weeks, you'll want to sleep on your back. This means that on one side of your face you don't add too much weight.
