For those of you who want to look younger, the thread implant procedure can be an option. The side effects of thread implants are also considered to be smaller than plastic surgery procedures. However, it is recommended that you remain aware of the risk of side effects that may occur
Threading is an aesthetic or beauty procedure that functions to rejuvenate and tighten facial skin. As the name implies, this procedure uses a special thread that is inserted into the skin of the face.
The thread implant procedure can make facial skin firmer because it stimulates the formation of collagen. As a result, wrinkles will fade and the skin will look younger.
How is the Thread Lifting Procedure Done?
Thread implant is one of the beauty procedures that can be done by aesthetic doctors. Before doing thread implants, the doctor will give local anesthetic in the facial area first. After that, the doctor will insert a special thread under the skin with the help of a needle or cannula.
Once the thread is inserted, the needle or cannula will be removed and the thread will be left under the skin. This procedure usually takes about 30–45 minutes and you can leave the hospital or beauty clinic on the same day.
To get maximum results, doctors can also give filler injections after threading is complete.The results of thread planting can be seen within 1-3 days. These results are temporary and can last for 1-3 years, depending on the type of yarn and the number of threads planted.
For 2-3 weeks after threading, you are advised not to apply facial creams. In addition, you are also advised not to sleep on your side and strenuous exercise for a while.
Side Effects of Cropping Yarn
If performed by a doctor who is competent in this procedure, thread implants actually have minimal side effects. After threading, you may experience pain, swelling, and bruising on your face. However, these side effects will disappear in a few days.
Although it is relatively safe, the thread-planting procedure can sometimes cause severe side effects or complications such as:
- Allergic reaction to anesthetics or threads implanted in the face
- An indentation or fold is formed where the thread enters the thread
- Skin bulging or swelling due to thread shift
- severe pain
Infection is the risk that you need to watch out for the most. Infections due to the thread implant procedure are generally characterized by green, brown, red or blackish discharge from the thread implant site.
Other signs of infection are swelling of the face for more than 48 hours, fever, and persistent headache.
If complications occur, you should immediately consult a doctor for treatment. The doctor will give antibiotics and pain medication to treat the infection. For some conditions, the doctor may have to remove the implanted thread again.
To be safer and the results obtained are satisfactory, choose a plastic surgeon or aesthetic doctor who is competent to perform the thread implant procedure.
If you plan to do it at a beauty clinic, you are advised to find out in advance about the credibility of the clinic, starting from the experience of the practitioners who work there, the type of thread used, to the side effects and treatment.
