Thread Lift Precautions, pre & post car
What is the safest approach for a thread lift?
Thread lifting is a procedure where the descent of tissues with age and gravity is restored back to their position without incisions or surgery. The simplest & safest approach is through the introduction of a cannula carrying the thread inside through a needle prick. The cannula is simply introduced and removed like an injection. It delivers behind the thread, which attaches to the tissues, to tighten and lift the skin. A local anesthetic is injected before the procedure to numb the area. The main precaution is to maintain a high level of hygiene to avoid infection or contamination of the thread,
