Aftercare guide

Immediate Aftercare

  • • Avoid strenuous activity, exercise, or heavy lifting for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

    • Follow any instructions provided by your doctor or healthcare provider. This may include taking medications, avoiding heavy exercises like weight lifting, and scheduling follow-up appointments.

    • After the procedure, rest for the entire day and limit facial movements.

    • Apply ice or a cold compress to the treated area to reduce swelling and discomfort. Do this as directed by your practitioner.

    • Avoid washing your face for the next 24 hours after the procedure. When washing the face after the 24-hour period, avoid applying pressure on the skin.

    • Avoid alcohol, smoking, and exposure to secondhand smoke for at least 72 hours after the procedure, as these substances can delay healing and increase the risk of complications.

    • Avoid sleeping on your face or applying pressure to the treated area. It is recommended to sleep in a supine position for the next 3-5 days.

    • Wait at least one month before getting any dental treatment.

    • Avoid deep facial massages for at least 6 months to prevent threads from disengaging. Resume laser treatments at least 1 month after the thread procedure
