ThreadLift – Non Surgical Facial Contouring Treatment A daily account of the Threadlift procedure performed by Dr Patel on a client Thursday- Day of the procedure On arrival my face was covered in a thick numbing cream and it was 45 minutes before the cream started to work and numb the face. The procedure was not pain-less, but I have in the past had fillers that have been painful. Afterwards I felt a little light headed but no pain at all. Eating however was not easy. Day 2 When I woke up my face felt very hard and the skin tight, hardly any bruising but a few bumps where the needles had been. I was very pleased as I went out to lunch which I didn’t expect. Day 3 The bruising had started to show but nothing a bit of makeup couldn’t hide Week 2 The bruising is very yellow. These is a slight ache under my chin and the mouth area has a slight electric shock feeling Week 3 Not much at all in terms of pain but a small amount of bruising. Now and then a twinge Week 4 My face has become much smoother, the skin under my chin is starting to become more slender and the biggest bonus is my makeup will stay fresh and dewy up to 8+ hours The procedure is not instant, but it is a softer way to lift your face, and I feel my face looks younger, brighter but not tight.
