If you’re looking for a way to get a lifted look but aren’t quite a candidate for plastic surgery, then a PDO thread lift may be right for you.
PDO thread lifts give subtle, lifted look that creates a smoother and tighter appearance. This form of treatment has several benefits, such as boosting one’s overall confidence and stimulating collagen production.
This form of treatment involves a provider inserting PDO threads beneath the skin that subtly work to lift sagging skin. This is one of the best forms of treatment for those looking to lift and tighten the face.
Receiving PDO threads is a bit more involved than a regular injectable. Having a proper aftercare routine that’s consistently followed is a must.
Continue reading to learn how to properly care for your skin after receiving PDO threads this fall.
6 Winter Aftercare Tips
1. Protect Your Skin From Sun Exposure
Protecting your skin from the sun is necessary to achieve the best results. Since the days are shorter in the fall, it’s much easier to avoid direct sun exposure. That being said, you should still wear at least 30 SPF sunscreen if leaving the house.
2. Properly Hydrate
Hydration is crucial for the skin’s recovery process. Make sure to drink enough water and use a gentle, hydrating moisturizer to keep your skin moist. This is especially important to avoid the cold weather drying out your skin.
3. Avoid Overexertion
It’s important to avoid strenuous physical activities, such as heavy lifting or intense exercise, for several days to a week after PDO thread insertion. Overexertion can increase the risk of bruising and complications. With the holidays approaching, you may feel busier than usual. Make sure you’re not extending yourself and take time to rest.
4. Avoid Drinking in Excess
With holiday gatherings right around the corner, it’s important to avoid drinking too much so that your skin does not become dehydrated.
5. Eat a Healthy Diet
Again, as the holidays approach, you may find yourself not eating well-balanced meals. Be sure to balance the holiday cookies with fruits and vegetables to promote healing.
6. Post-Procedure Instructions
No matter how busy you are this time of year, it’s important to consistently follow the instructions given to you by your provider. This will ensure you properly heal from the procedure and achieve full results.
The recovery time differs depending on each person, so be sure to talk with your provider about how long to perform aftercare treatment. This will help you get an idea of how to plan your recovery around this busy season.
